    I'm quite sure most of my active su scribers have already seen this, but I think it is important to spread awareness just in case.
    Read this post to learn more about owning your Content.

    We'd like to take some time to say thank you for all the awesome stuff you all share with the community! We know how hard all of you work and how much creativity and time goes into every creation posted on Planet Minecraft.

    Unfortunately, there are some people that would like to use your hard work for their personal or financial gain. While it can be exciting that someone wants your permission to share your content, it's worth taking some time to look into where your content is actually going. Sometimes, they don't even ask for your permission. Not cool.

    The most common dishonest requests ask to use something you made for a different version of Minecraft or to re-upload content to another website or app without fully explaining how your content will used. Sometimes these are harmless, open and honest requests by people wanting to promote your work with credit to a community that speaks another language. Sometimes the person just wants to personally use your creation in another version of Minecraft or highlight it in a Youtube video. What's important is that you know how your work will be used and that proper credits are given. Sometimes the main reason the person wants the content you spent considerable time and effort to create is to make a profit off of it and could care less about crediting and promoting the real content creator, you.

    Here are a few things you can do to protect yourself and your creations:

    Step 1 : Documentation
    Upload your creation to Planet Minecraft as soon as it is ready and before you share it with anyone else. Doing this gives you something super important that proves you were the one who made what you're sharing: a date and time attached to exactly when your creation was first shared. This timestamp and any other documentation helps prove ownership.

    Tip: If you don't want to share your post publicly, you can still protect your content with this step! Create your submission but uncheck "Publish Live". This will draft your post so only you can see it!

    Step 2 : Consider a License
    Register your creation for a Creative Commons License. You might be familiar with this already as you might have seen it on other posts already. It's a simple step that allows you to express exactly when and how your creation should be used by others. You can get started on creating your CC License here: https://creativecommons.org/choose/.

    Note: legally you are the owner of any skin or texture you make regardless the license you may put in place for it. Posting to PMC for timestamp reasons is a great way to protect and prove! Technically, the right to any skin or texture is the same as a painter having the right to their painting. Painters use canvases and so do you! Just in a different medium! There's a great article on The Informed Illustrator regarding digital art & copywright law that's worth reading if you need clarity on this subject.

    Step 3 : Knowledge
    If someone asks you if they can use something you made, do a bit of research! Something as simple as visiting that person's profile here or on their linked social media pages may help you determine if they mean well. Be cautious of new members reaching out to you who have empty profiles, no linked accounts and no posts here. Ask questions when people request to use your work such as where it will be posted, how it will be credited and who will see your work. Make sure you are getting credit for your own work and that it won't be put behind advertising links, sold or behind paid access.

    Step 4 : Common sense
    Listen to your gut! You have every right to say no and you don't have to have a reason why. Saying no doesn't mean you're selfish or mean. If something doesn't feel right and you think someone might be dishonest, don't give them permission.

    Step 5 : Raise Awareness
    Learn more and get involved in protecting your work and others. Share these steps. Helping others understand how to protect themselves can be just as important as protecting yourself. Awareness sites like https://stopmodreposts.org/ have been helping this cause for years!



    We hope that this helps you protect yourself and your work. Your creations are valuable and so are you!

    Happy Crafting,
    Planet Minecraft Team

    This is some good advice for users!
    I would like to add that inserting a pmc logo or watermark In a creation's screenshots can also help In preventing reposting/plagarization, as they tend to simply reuse the screenshots and not take new ones. Although this Is not a true form of protection It can greatly help your creation from being reposted.

    A Big Hi to PMC members :D
    I would like to say a big THAnK YoU for the Amazing response to Medieval Musings. They have been a lot of Fun to work on and develop.


    Here is an update on one of the larger builds - Twin Towers. It is at 95% completion and will be available from this weekend. I will leave it at 95% complete - leaving some scope for players to add their own touch.
    before....

    After...





    As the first schematics begin to be readied for free upload, I would like to provide some details on the Mod List requirements; to fully enjoy these builds.

    To fully enjoy the Modded Blocks I recommend using Forge1.12.2-14.23.0.2529
    I recommend this particular version so you can enjoy the Better Foliage Mod

    Mod List
    ConquestReforged-3.0.0-mc1.12.2
    OptiFine 1.12.2 HD_U_E3
    Better-Foliage-Mod-1.12.2
    Better-Slabs-Mod-1.12.2

    Stay Tuned for Schematic uploads very soon :D

    It's with a heavy sigh that I must inform you that I decided to step down from the Designer staff rank on EpicQuestz ...

    I'm really grateful for everything this team gave to me, whether it be brilliant memories or life lessons. There's no other place or community like EpicQuestz that would feel more of a home to me.
