  • Is this a stupid question?????

    This may sound completely idiotic, but should I thank someone after every use of a background or overlay?

    What I mean is, if I get say a living room or a kitchen background from someone (or something else I will use multiple times) do I thank the person who gave it to me after every use of it or only after the first?

    Help on this matter would be greatly appreciated, thanks

      I usually do it once and at the end of the story like "quick shoutout to so and so for the background"
      some people I've seen do it every time so I think it's up to personal preference.

        What I've been doing is saying thank you at the end of the first chapter of the first use of a background and then not again after that, do you think that's ok?

        That's how I handle it, so it should be fine.

        Yeah that sounds good enough.

      I haven't had someone to create a background for me yet, however once you thank the person once I think that's good enough.

        I've seen a lot of authors use the little pop-up menu (forgot what it was called) to credit the artist.

          That's the Reader Message.

        I usually put it at the end as credits. Every episode that I use that background/overlay, I'll mention the artist's IG, but won't specifically state what BG/overlay it was. So just a general "Credit to x, y and z for various backgrounds and overlays". I use so many backgrounds and overlays from different people that it would be annoying to have a reader message pop up every time lol.

          I just have a big massive message with credits at the end of each chapter.
