In Skyrim, they use similar marks. Now you know where it is based from.

And it's also done, as mereu stated, because they'll never return to the same place again. At least no good criminal would do so.

And when criminals are in gangs/communities, the wealth eventually goes directly or indirectly to the group, meaning that helping one-another is almost always bearing fruit of some kind, as long as they stick together.

Because if they work in a group, the others know not to waste their time.

Because the previous thief has already been in the neighborhood or compromised their identity and no one is enough stupid to stay at the same place for to long or do another burglary. So by helping fellow thiefs you may find a sign from another fellow theif in the next neighborhood yourself. I dont know... just my thought I guess.

Because they never rob the same house or person twice.

Honorable thieves are ones who steal from other thieves. I.E. Sly and his gang.

So if I put the Slenderman mark on my house I wouldn't have any problems with burglars then.

Yes, they would realize you are an art major with a minimum-wage job and therefore nothing to steal.

Skyrim. Shadowmarks are symbols used by the Thieves Guild, so that buildings throughout Skyrim can quickly be identified by Guild members as to their potential usage. The symbols are usually carved next to the building's doorway.

I'm surprised there aren't more comments about this. You'd think with all the Skyrim posts Funnyjunk has seen that more people would recognize shadowmarks.

I'd never even noticed them until I red the book about them in game. Then it took me a while before I started noticing them reliably. They're in some dungeons as well.

Just because you never seen them doesn't mean that's wrong....

These things actually exist, though they're not made for and by burglars. They used to be very common here in germany, where they're called Zinken or Mordbrennerzeichen, you can still find some rarely these days. They were first noticed in the 16th century, they were used by people that could not simply communicate in the open, like criminals but also beggars and vagrancy. Beggars for example used them to mark wether houses would give to those acting pious or brash or would only give out a meal after working for them etc., but most were used by crooks and rascals to plan crimes or spread "underworld gossip" about arrests, executions or other things.

Pic related, it's some Zinken that were actually used, but i won't bother translating right now.
