A couple of hours ago, I noticed that a new file has been uploaded in the Downloads section. Curious as I was, I went to see what this was about, because in general, I encourage sub-mods, fixes, tweaks, guides or whatever content you want. I think it shows that people lovve the mod and do more things for it and for the community.
But this was not the case with this file. It was a torrent client installer, using the mod's name. It was an illegal thing, that took advantage of the mod and whoever did it should be ashamed. I really don't care if you make use of pirated content(books, games, music, whatever). It doesn't concern me and it's your buisiness. But when you take advantage of the work of other people(however little or big that is) that's a shameful display of character.
As I said, I encourage wholeheartedely the making of extra content of the mod. Everything that belongs to me is Open for usage and everything that is open source is free for all. With that said, I like when I see people make guides, ideas, sub-mods, tweaked file and everything, because that shows love for the mod and appreciation of the effort and myself. If you have sth to publish, whatever that is, I will accept it(unless it contradicts the mod entirely, like space invaders with rifles in Viking Age xD), but I only ask one thing from you: Just inform me. Contact me and then do what you want. All of you who commented or contacted me know that I respond close to all things, but INFORM ME.
Now, most of the members (with positive AND negative opinions for the mod) give support to the mod and I apprecate it(because even when you critisize an error or sth that annoys you, that shows to me that you took the time to evaluate what you see and gave it a second look and I appreciate that). I am grateful to all of you for the support and the respect of the simple rules of common courtesy and good manners you show constantly, it is a source of encouragement even when you scold me. But to people like that man/woman who just take advantage things to promote their interest -and much more an illegal one- that shows something of your character and it's not good.
With the Outmost Respect to the community,
