    I already gave Dude101 permission to use TeamX art. As for other russian modders I can say one: keep the authorship, that's all. I've never heard of any modder, who'd refuse to share his or her work with the rest of the community. After the mod is released anyone may use it's resources while they don't try to appropriate it and pretend they are the authors. But that's definitely is not the case here. :)

    It's not about permissions (* , it's about courtesy - it should be known who created the art, that's all. I have put "no random images from the internet" to prevent anybody uploading e.g. Bethesda's images (which would be a problem). I have changed the rules to signify that you can upload others' art if you attribute it to them, but you shouldn't upload anything with commercial copyright.

    (* Well, yes, in the Czech Republic, there is no "public domain", nobody can be "ripped of" his / her authorship (and responsibility, so disclaimers are problematic for freeware). However, this was not the main reason for the rules, they were based on my knowledge of Czech laws (where the server is currently located) and vague knowledge of American laws (where the website may be relocated and from where comes the biggest threat like copyright-savvy companies).

    @To Karel,
    I have made some others test to this web site.

    - I am not sure if the "create account" is functional ?
    - I've got an sql warning each time i preview my post (when making a generic fallout art and uploading a gif picture). The warning doesn't appear when i click on the save button.

    - The "foo" method is more nice, at least for me :wink: . But maybe more sensitive to spam bots attempt ?
    - Could you add a "generic item" under Item Type ?

    Should be, several people registered and successfully logged in.
    I will have a look at that.

    It is quite vulnerable, at least to "human" spam - people manually submitting spam, but I will keep "foo" as long as nothing happens.

    Done.

    Hey guys, it's really, really cool that you're uploading various stuff so furiously (although MadBrahmin "boss", Ratman, does think something completely different, since he find out this whole thing not until this morning :lol:), but please do not call that Sirren's critter thing Molech, 'cause it's not and didn't initially suppose to be either.
    Me and Sirren agreed on that he'll try to make a Gehenna, but (unlike majority of his great works) I was never really pleased, simply because it never looked like a Gehenna. Thus Sirren made the critter public or headed directly to the MR guys, not sure, it's his work and his decision anyway. But who on earth beginned to call it Molech? Who the fuck? It's so toddhowardish. :wink:

    I posted this already in the comments, but it seems not to be there, so I post here again.

    The girl critter

    In the description it says, that Lisac2k's critter is lost and this was recreated by Siren. But Lisac's critter isn't lost because 1. I still have the frms and 2. it is also includet in Shattered Destiny.

    Or did I missed something?

    Fixed permissions: anonymous users may now post comments without approval (they weren't lost, just hidden).

    Hi Karel.
    No, I remade that critter, but the one which is distributed was actually made again by Lisac2k.
    And just for the record: I started modding again...
    See you.

    Note on progress: I fixed (hopefully :smile: ) last flaw - spammers were able to skip captcha by posting just images (which resulted in several thousand spam posts).

    No matter what i make, i couldn't login. Requesting a new password with either my "nickname" or my mail doesn't work - maybe because it's an hotmail account ?

    Thanks :D

    And it's true, we couldn't see anymore content created by users ?

    Technically, the content did not disappear, I can still see it, just the permissions are weird, I°m not sure why normal users cannot access it.

    I will try to fix the problem next week as soon as I get home. I°m sorry for any inconvinience (and my spelling, no spell checker here :lol: )

    Hey, I have some weapon .frms I've made from somewhat random google image searches that turned out really well. They're just inventory shots, but I think they're nice. Really got down there in Photoshop and did some per-pixel editing to get those borders looking good. Wouldn't mind sharing them, but the site appears to be down. :(

    So, I fixed the site (again). The problem: around end of July, several spam robots found that you didn't have to pass CAPTCHA to post an image, so at the beginning of August, I found about 20 000 spam images. During the cleanup, I probably accidentally cleaned a few more database tables than needed, so regular users couldn't see nor upload new content.

    I restored the site from database backup from 20/7/2008 (last non-spam content was posted ten days before that, spam started slightly later, so the only missing thing is one comment and probably two or three user accounts - nothing worth recovering from later massive "backups of spam". Everything should be OK (which doesn't mean that it is OK :lol: ).
