Our policy on listing challenge sites

Periodically, Feline Playful receives an email or comment alerting us that there are accusations placed against a digital stamp company/challenge that we list claiming that they are selling images that they don't have rights to. Feline Playful absolutely condemns the theft of artist images and does not condone this practice in any way. Every time these accusations prove true, it casts a shadow on the digital stamp industry and everyone who is part of it.

Having said this, we do not vette challenge sites that we include on our lists. It has long been our practice to list any challenge blog that asks. Feline Playful is non-partisan and the only requirement to be included on our lists is to have an active paper crafting challenge blog.

If accusations are brought against a challenge site or its sponsor company we can not put ourselves into the role of judge. As long as the challenge operates, it will be listed on our site. Remember, being on the Feline Playful lists is not a recommendation from our team to participate. It is up to each of you, our followers, to decide whether a challenge is worthy of your time, energy and creativity to enter.
Sorry to get so serious on you but even in crafting, there are times when serious is needed. For more information on digital stamp copyright issues, check out these sites and always remember to read and follow the Angel Policy (rules of use) for any images you use.
