Rules for use of existing Disigns?

I am new to this forum and have spent a few days looking at all the wonderful artwork and reading the guidelines but I would like some clarification on the etiquette of using a disign.

If I wanted to use a disign without any changes should I request permission of the designer or is it generally assumed that such use is OK? Normally I would of course ask but in the case of these huge boards I hate to add to the email if it is not needed or not welcome.

I assume that changing someone's design requires permission?

Sorry if these seem like dumb questions but amongst all the detailed rules about how to ask a disigner to modify or create a disign there did not seem to be any posted rules for use of unmodified disigns or modification of disigns.

Just my opinion,,not a rule.
I do not change past DISigners stuff as a courtesy.
I do not want my stuff changed or redone.

1. I would ask the original DISigner first if they mind having their stuff used.
Most past Disigners have left blanks for people to personalize NOT so someone starts a new thread using someone else's disigns as their own.

2.Start a new thread and ask for a new DISign to be made.

3. Attempt to learn how to change or personalize it yourself.

For the most part I don't personalize. If you want to personalize it go right ahead, I don't need to be asked. If it comes out good and you want to show it I'd love to see it but I don't need to. I put my DISigns out there and if someone wants to use them feel free. Other than personalization I would hope no one would modify them but I have no control over that. As long as they don't claim it as their own.

Out of respect for the original artist I do not modify others DISigns. I might try to do something "in the flavor of" but more likely I'll come up with my own DISign.

If I have posted a DISign to Photobucket then I allow it to be used, without permission, as is.....no changes.

I prefer to personalize myself but if someone does ask I will usually give the go ahead for them to do it. In this case please do ask. Exception is simple Mickey heads that I encourage DISers to download a font they like and try to personalize themselves.

I also do not personalize other DISigners "stuff". If that DISigner is long gone I may reproduce a style as long as it is something simple and not too clearly their own unique style. However, I have so many of my own DISigns that I rarely do any reproductions....and I mean very rarely.
Welcome to the DISBOARDS! Enjoy your stay Remember that my requests require JPG file name...
Be sure you know forum rules and rules for individual DISigners before posting! Please read STICKYS at top of forum for more info
For me, no PMs, no linking or pinning to images and NO QUOTE feature use of my posts or in my threads. Thanks....Marion
