[personal profile] gelydh posting in [community profile] club_crimsyn
Just to set the record straight, [personal profile] geldyh is NOT me, and is in NO WAY associated with either me, Aikea, or Club Crimsyn.

While I will say that I've had this username (first on LiveJournal) since 2005 and find it incredibly odd that someone would be involved in Sims 3 CC and be completely unaware of me, or at least Club Crimsyn, I have no desire to start a pissing contest with some random person over the internet.

This post is just to inform all you about this, to hopefully lessen the confusion this has apparently caused. Aikea and I are still creating things together (I just got home today from eating her food and drinking her wine, actually), I've just been incredibly distracted by the beast known as Real Life™.

Annon-in-Gelydh: The Sindarin name for the lost Gate of the Noldor, found after years of searching by Tuor, and used by him to escape Hithlum and find his way into Nevrast.

It just seems even more dodgy when this person actually credits Club Crimsyn for some of their skintone stuff. So clearly they can't say they were unaware of you.

I totally agree with you on not wanting to get into a pissing contest with this person. Not worth it. I would be very interested to see why they picked that name in the first place, though - if they happened to mention anywhere that they were a Tolkien fan it would make a little more sense.

Took a minute of looking at both names to figure out all they did was switch 2 letters.

I'd say it's deliberate, that they're trying to draw on the following you two have built up by using a name nearly exactly like yours.

They claim in one of their blog entries, that they'd had the name for 'years' on IMVU (whatever the hell that is), and didn't even know about you until the came to DW.

So. Yeah, I call bullshit as well. They say an opportunity to catch a ride on your coattails and this was the result.}:/

Also, it appears that one of his link banners says "Gelydh." (AND his title.) Riiiight, he's not copying you—cool story, bro; wish I believed it. At least his work isn't identical to yours. :/

Yeah I noticed them when they first started uploading things (though quite clear by the look of the stuff that they aren't you). Probably doesn't help that people seem to mix up the tiny difference in name and refer to them with yours.

Odd, in any case.

Odd how they claim to have learnt how to create on GoS (you know the forum where you're most visible) and yet there is no account in that name registered to the forum. Weird since they claim they have always used your username.

And yes the dw addy reverses two letters but then everything else on the site uses your username. It comes across to me as malicious. If they must use Gelydh as part of their name their are many was to make it obvious that they are not you they have not done that.

Since I wrote my first comment I talked to you know who (not Voldemort)and I heard the story about who it actually is. So yes I call utter shenanigans on them using that name before they saw you.

I'm not entirely sure what their major malfunction is but hopefully the creepy moron will get bored soon.

Ha I was so confused at first when I saw the name popping up everywhere suddenly. :P

It really doesn't help that their site is also on Dreamwidth.

I'd block the person from commenting on Club Crimsyn to limit confusion from readers if they did post.

Hi I've been a big fan of you guys since I found this wonderful world of custom content for sims. And I was confused as well when I saw him on the "my sims 3 blog", I thought, "Oh yeah they've came out with new skins", and then I felt bad because I thought you and Akeia decided to part ways...so VERY glad that isn't the case. He/she however should be castrated and hung by their feet and poked with spears. That is all....

It's definitely NOT wierd, he/she is probably a crazy stalker fan of yours, or maybe he/she thinks by using your name he will get more downloads, I mean Club Crisymn and Gelydh, Akiea are synomous with quality.....so having said that, I know it's hard when someone bites your style...but that just means you're someone worth emulating.... brush your shoulders off...you guys are the shyt!!!!!

I just wanted to say, as a huge Tolkien and Sims fan, I've always loved your chosen pseudonym, and I think it's total bullshit someone wants people to believe his suspiciously similar username is just a coincidence. And I don't think said person has any idea where the name comes from, which is even more offensive to me as a Tolkien fan.

I just wanted to say: I'm glad you posted this.

You were--honestly--the first Sims 2 CC-artists I've ever downloaded from. Anyone who has CC for Sims 2 & 3 should know who you are, or it's their loss.

It's pathetic that they've clearly tried to impersonate a well-known creator. If you want to get known around the community, work hard on your own creations and stop impersonating other, more talented creators.

I actually posted a (very polite!) comment on their blog about the similarity between your name and theirs, and not only did they delete my comment, they posted a pretty nasty entry about the whole thing.

Hopefully they'll lose interest and move along. Very irritating and disgusting.

heeyy

This entry is specifically about TS3, but it would also apply to TS2 if you come across something similar. (The only time [personal profile] gelydh and I have uploaded TS2 things separatly has been when we were on TSR.)

In fact, the same person completely ripped off another well known TS2 creator a while back, going so far as to steal the entire site.

Just wanted to tell you that I have an IMVU account. One that's older than they claim to be in fact! :P

Anyway I did a search and found someone with that name with a pretty new account and from Japan. Just FYI.
