Ugh, this is kinda on the middle but I just don't know where to say it and I just need to say it?
I was on a site - like two years ago - and I had a lot of fun. It was a hard time in my life so near the decline of the site - I was like a bit absent, but like...I had fun. I joined their new site when the one I was on closed and I kind of had a falling out with the admin and the co-admin since we just didn't really click anymore? Or at least, from what I could tell they did not like member input about that site in particular, but what have you - I just bowed out, deleted myself, and left.
Two years later, I realize they just opened up a new site - and they have mentions of my character. I'm having multiple feelings - the person who mentioned them, was really nice and they really did my character justice even though she died. I'm glad that my character was a good foil to their own. I was super happy that my character inspired someone to take what I have and didn't hurt her. However, at the same time - this is on a site that I had a falling out with the two main admins who I know just didn't like me? That I personally had negative feedback from and in a sense really didn't feel safe around?
Like...I have mixed feelings. I'm fine with the person I like mentioning the character - I just...don't want it on their site? And this isn't vague posting since this is literally in a fandom that is pretty freakin' small and there's not a lot of animal rp'ers around but yeah. I have mixed feelings - and ugh. I think I only know two people in the animanga family who would have rped anywhere near these sites.
I'm not so much asking how I should handle it because I'm too awkward to really come out and say 'uh, guys' type of thing - but more a discussion of how would you feel about this and how would you handle it if someone used a character you created in a sense, without your permission for site history or character histories?
