um, please don’t use images like the background you just used

it’s probably copyrighted and won’t look right with the background looking more realistic than the gims

yeah, i know that, but wht i was saying is that, one thumbnial hlp post is better than like the 50 we have in the hlp section

Please stop. Sure, this may be off-topic, but if that’s true just flag it, mute it, and be done.

a) this isnt a help post
b) we can just flag the help posts and move them to devices. bam. no clutter.
c) do any of those help posts start flame wars?
(i am gonna stop here, i have seen pretty much all of these “thumbnail guides” break into flame wars)

dude, its a kids game
i dont think their gonna sue anyone
its not worth the legal fee

see: gimkit creative guidelines

there’s no harm in just being safe and not using copyrighted imagery though

please don’t advertise that you’re making pfps.
saving you flags.
when you see someone ask for a pfp, just volunteer to do it.
