DoA Event Information on identifying recasts

Nov 20, 2016

    1. Hello everyone!

      As today is Pro-BJD Artists Day, we are wheeling out a little project the mod team has been working on! :)

      We knew there were some threads about how to identify recasts, and how to look out for them, but there has never been one central location to go, to see a lot of information at once.

      So, we have compiled information on recasts - how to spot them, how to avoid them, and more!

      We also have statements from large companies and small artists alike, as to how recasting negatively affects them personally.

      So, please check out the new Wiki page linked below! Happy Pro-BJD Artists Day to everyone!

    9. Yess tysm for doing this! I' ve always had a fear of buying recasts, so that really helps me to identify them!!
       
    10. Thank you for providing this link! There are more and more sellers popping-up on eBay that shamelessly offer recast dolls. This link will be very useful to help identify these recasts.

    11. For those of you spamming for marketplace access:
      Please be aware that many (thousands) of members subscribe to important threads such as this one.

      First, every time one of you posts your pointless "thanks," every one of us gets an update notification, only to look and find no new information, just a spamming squee post. You just inconvenienced 10,000 members, including me. Which is why I'm here now.

      Second, all those pointless posts bloat the thread and make it necessary to go through pages of this stuff in order to find any nuggets of actual information. Thanks a lot. Imagine if all 20,000-odd members posted their thanks for every informational thread? Yikes!

      Third, it is NOT necessary to make a spam post in order to subscribe to a thread. On the top of every thread, on the right side opposite the title of the thread are the words "Watch Thread." Click on it and select your option.
