  PotD Issues - Site News
  Posted by: JediShemL on 06-28-2010 @ 20:43
This News Item has been viewed 12,704 times
I really don't understand how this trend over the last month has started, but the reality is it's going on and I'm going to put a stop to it.

About 7 to 8 times over the last month or maybe a month and half, a different user each time has submitted a PotD that was made by me years ago. The most recent is today and I'm getting very annoyed by it. In fact, a modder even used one of my screenshots I took back in 2006, and used it to advertise his mod.

I've asked other users depending on the situation about it and each time they said they found it on Google. In fact one guy describe what key words he used on Google to find the picture and it didn't show up when I tried it myself, so I had my doubts about it. But did it ever occur to anybody to use their own screenshots instead of someone else's instead?

Let me give you guys a heads up. I've contributed probably around 200 pictures in the PotD section here over the last 4 years. Probably about 150 of those were in 2006 and 2007. One thing I can say is I know my own work and will remember each and every PotD I ever contributed here. So don't think I won't remember it even if it was 3 or 4 years ago because I will. One thing that gives my PotD's away is the personal style I use for most and the mods that are displayed in it as none of my PotD's are mod free.


In fact, I've seen some people try to use pictures that are 5 years old and I still knew that it was redundant along with it not being theirs. Let's just say that as long as I'm working on this site and validating PotD's, I won't approve of any pictures already used, especially since it was by another author as well. You're wasting your time making these attempts.

So please I do encourage all members here to make their own PotD's and distribute those instead of somebody else's.

I'm sorry, I mean no offence, but why did you validate the reused pics when you knew they were yours in the first place? And I'm sorry if its mentioned in the article and I just didn't pay enough attention

At least you admit you don't pay attention. Roll Eyes (sarcastic)

Listen, I can't stop people from submitting pictures. But I can delete their submissions and make sure they don't make it to the public, which I have been doing. All I'm saying to people is quit doing it because I won't validate it.

My problem now that I explained it to you is if you're going to actually pay attention to the words that have been typed by me. Roll Eyes (sarcastic)
