« on: December 25, 2010, 07:11:40 PM »

Three dog awooowowoowooo!

Well this is good news right here. I just hope this doesn't put off potential future modders just because they are young and stupid.

Well I'm glad to hear that, now they just need to get rid of these ones...

Seriously.. how many CSS to CS mods need to be made?

Whilst on the subject, this needs to be killed too;

They really need a Report a Mod button for this sort of crap.

How long is it before the Nerd Police show up and bash them for trafficking retail content? (Assuming they release)
It's happened at HIT a few times, wouldn't surprise me if Mod Db was in their RADAR.

There is a report button but I assume it doesn't work because  all the moddb nerds abuse the shit out of it

We really need to get these mods taken down, both of these blatantly plagiarize content but take full credit for the stuff they're just copying and pasting:

Guy from Colonial marines keeps saying that it's just placeholder content but keeps posting up images of the models like it's something they made.. it's lame.

We need to get this thing moving again;

Either that.. or start another group...

Yeah I saw the group too, but something tell me it would be a bad idea to retake the group, just take a look at the comments
EDIT:
Maybe we can start our own like Stoller troller or something

I got some contacts in the pentagon. Maybe we can just set up a private assassination squad just for us. Ollie North would totally be on board with that.

Meh comments aren't an issue, a quarter of the people on moddb have the IQ of a pencil anyway... Moddb needs some kind of order to say that this is wrong, if the staff are too pressed to do it perhaps something is needed to show the community that you can't just put whatever you like in a mod or take someone else's work and claim it as your own. One day something like what happened on HIT where a developer threatened legal action against the host because of illegally ported models, I can see it coming...

[edit]That Modern warfare CS mod has been released apparently, but there's no download link, perhaps the admins will realise everything is stolen from retail and delete it...

Great stuff, I've reported the MW2 mod via PM, if they have any sense it'll be deleted on the spot.

Someone should write up a proper template which can be mailed to the administrators, would speed up the process of beating up shit mods I think.

I sent mine to both INtense! and Henley, apparently the latter of which is the guy responsible for content control, though so far only INtense! has replied.

Yet more stolen models and textures from AVP2 and stolen concepts...

The mapping itself is decent.. if it is even made by the team, it's hard to tell based on the above.

Haha that guy is a retard, he spams mod pages with thins like "Is it done yet because I am to the point of bloody madness waiting!" ...what? He Used To Type Like This.. which annoyed the fuck out of me but seems to have dropped that now. I love his generic insult, guy's probably about 14.

This one's been deleted! Wonder if the users get a message "Sorry but your mod has broken the website terms of use and had to be deleted" .."FUUUUUUUUU!"
