Level 58 : Grandmaster Modder
Dont we all hate it when you look on the mod page and you see some random guy who posts "too many items" on Planet Minecraft. Quite often these mods get taken down quite soon with the "helpfull" Folks over there spamming the comment button yelling into their computer "STOLEN STOLEN STOLEN!". Yes... You all know what im here to talk about but its the sad... sad truth.

Thats why these people need to be stopped! Of course most of them have no idea that theyre breaking the rules! I see many people that even state themselves in their description that they are "Posting the mod to make it popular" When they dont even post a link to the original thread...What.
But serriosly I have seen on a website and found that 70% of all mods ever posted on planet minecraft and the minecraft forums combined are stolen. (Including the ones that have been deleted) But it doesent have to be mods it can be Projects, texturepacks or skins. But Mods are The most common because You get the most xp out of them (believe me I know!)

Now... How do you know if Its obviosly Stolen or not? you may ask.

o Lack Of Description. Stolen mods sometimes have Little of no Information at all.
o Lack Of Pictures Stolen mods quite often have little or no pictures at all.
o Level 1... Yeah you know what im talking about. If you see someone who posts something with a low level it may be stolen.

Im sure you and I both know that isnt any way possible that Cyprezz can pump up Planet Minecraft security so it knows right away when something is stolen content, The only thing that we can do, No change that. I urge you that if you see something that seems stolen Flag it! Moderators will Review your Request.

i see alot of people steal credit for pmc builds within their servers oddworlds medieval town and recently his desert town have been making a scene on many servers and each one of the owners or admins of those particular servers ether plays the "i built this from scratch" card or they steal little bits and bobs from it and dice it up expecting that nobody would know its an import. this applies to all pmc builders out there who put their hard work out and share it with us...do them a favor and have some sort of heart and give the credit they so much deserve a simple sign saying "built by 5ander" or "oddworld" "angelblock". nobody will think less of your server for it i can promise you that.

You know I once caught someone who copy and pasted the entire Doctor Who Client Mod thread and posted it. The funny thing is...even though he changed the url in the thread he didnt bother editing the images.

At that time I hosted all the images on by web storage....so I figured id do something out of the ordinary.

I uploaded a new set of the images and edited the real thread to display them. I then took all the old images and replaced them with a big fat " THIS THREAD HAS BEEN STOLEN AND IS A CLEAR VIOLATION OF THE TERMS OF SERVICE. IF YOU SEE THIS IMAGE ON ANY THREAD...REPORT THE POSTER"

The thing I found most hilarious about it....is the DWCM isnt even released yet....so...yeah....uh...what was the point in copying the thread lol

It's bad to see these things get re-posted but in the end all they want to do is make the mod more popular by posting it again. They shouldn't do that but I don't think I would call it stealing.

i bloody hate when people update things for no reason, just to bump it up to the front page like update 4: I like feed back so give me some, or something like that or sometimes they even say bump. i think its unfair for the people who are updating for there project being more new and updated when people are just doing bumps when no one wants to see the same shit over and over again. if its going to be updated make it have updates (new and improved).

Great article, enjoyed reading this.
Not every level 1 steals work though, so i don't completely agree on that.
However I do understand that it's highly unlikely that a level 1 could submit a full blown mod as his or her own content.

I aggree with uploading others content if:

They give you permission

You give them credit in the title, description, and credit box

You include the original thread and not use (Ad link removed) money

yes, the people who made the post must be done at least 20% of the mod!

You shouldn't say his name. It's disrespectful. I understand what he did, but still.. It's kinda rude...

its more rude to steal projects i would say spread the name of the copyers so we know who they are!

This guy blamed me of stealing his texture packs, even though I make skins...(Crappy ones)
People should read the warnings! And what good is getting XP for somebody else's work? I don't get it. What more can we do but keep reporting stolen items and making more awareness blogs?

Agreed,same goes for texture packs,i almost feel like a mod going through the texture packs section having to report so many stolen misa's or stolen painterly's.
