    If you are a member of this forum, and are found to have pirated and uploaded anybody's work, from any forum, be it Papermodelers.com, Paper-Replika, Papermau, UHU02 (You'll hang for that), any person's model of whom you do not have permission, you will be booted out of this forum, no warning. Recently, a member of Papermodelers.com had all of his work, it seems, uploaded by a member who belonged here, but was banned because he did not make any posts in his time here. You don't post here, you don't participate, don't expect to be here long. This does not apply to 99 and 99 44/100 % of our members, but for the couple of you that I am hunting down, let it be know that non participation, and downloading means the boot

    , no warning, no quarter given, non taken, you are out.[​IMG]

    This is Zealot's policy. What other forums do is their business, but we will not help pirates continue to participate where the great minds of modeling meet. Where the great builders of models meet. These few will not benefit from what we have created here, usurping it for the vile uses, stupidly pleading innocence, hiding behind various languages, writing, 'I did not understand", when all the manners of acting decently and with morals exists in all languages. Ignorance is not excuse, in these cases, where multiple and numerous files. When one, because of misunderstanding the ambiguous .pdf, is uploaded, the member gets a stern warning. If done again, they get booted out. Mistakes are mistakes, but we all know that we are talking about piracy, blatant piracy.

    If you did not make the model, don't share it. It's that simple. Thank You.

    This thread will be open for a short time for intelligent posts, but be warned, I will rip apart ignorant ones.

    Some think that banning a self admitted pirate from another forum is not "our' business. I sincerely advise not posting that argument.

    Obviously, this makes for fun reading for the 99 and 44/100th % of you it does not apply too, fun, isn't it!! :)

    Nicely said Zathros, I completely agree! BTW; just watching the clip is painful! :):inpain:

    That clip is like watching a train wreck, I can't look away.

    Fully agree with the stance above. These talented people are willing to offer the sweat of their brow to us for free, and pirates take advantage of that.

    It makes my blood boil...

    is there a way to easily find an author of a model, communicate a simple permission slip from them and then link or host a model? or is it just an Easter egg hunt for all newbies and people who don't know where every single model is hosted? I'm talking like, ----search, ''star trek'', ''Zeon rockets'', ''author'', message for permission to mod or host or post link''---- kind of feature?

    Our Resource section, all Hail Rhaven black, on that, is really well organized. You know, sometimes, you (no YOU) have to work at things if you want it. I think sometimes people don't realize how much they get for free, and maybe expect much. That being said, we are open with for ideas, and you, being rather brilliant, are someone I would listen too, if you have come up with one , or if you have one. Just send me it in a P.M.'s, so we can really get into it. Thanks! :)

    Was this the hosehead who claimed they were only "trying to make the models more available" in their country, or some such tripe like that?

    In a way, it is our business- If someone is going to display such blatant disregard for a designer's wishes and requests somewhere else, what's keeping them from doing the same to us here?

    I don't want to agree if it was that person, but I am not disagreeing either. I do believe it concerns us. I do not know if any action was taken there. As far as that goes, I am curious as to why not, if none was.
