Well, first, it's LaZ's company's problem it's part of their dedicated job to keep everything running smoothly, whereas Steve from PC isn't being paid when it comes to maintaining the server for PC. So there's the motivation to improve, and I think they have about a month ago?

Second, Team Fail is working on something where it'll reduce the name-change to something like changing a usertitle so hang in there.

And no, I did not say I was working on something like that. This was a simple little plugin I found and was using. besides i tend to suck at coding things. if anything, it'd make it worse than better.

I've changed usergroup colors for the following:

VIP I
Assistant Admin
Webmaster


They should be easier to read on darker themes now without too much sacrifice for lighter themes.

I strongly ask for a zero-tolerance policy for this kind of behavior. Perhaps the consequences being (1) a verbal warning and (2) permanent ban.

Why I suggest this is because in the past (I will not mention specifics) a certain user decided to use others' code, content, and ideas and merged them into his own hack.

When a number of people pointed out the similarities of this user's work with its antecedent, this person flipped out and removed credits. Then this user began a spam war, made false statements about another user, then ultimately got temporarily (1) banned from one of the forums this user posted on, and (2) had the thread closed when I publicly made this known.

This is different from borrowing ideas and being inspired by other hacks - this hacker I speak of literally just took content from other games (border graphics, battle bar graphics, tiles and tilesets, overworld sprite, and other ideas). Should you feel that you need more evidence, PM me.

I understand this is a bit much to ask, and that there's a fine line between inspiration and downright thievery.
I also realize I am a strongly justice-oriented person and I believe this may be a problem in the future if unaddressed.
I remember the incident this is referring to. Originally part of it was used with permission (a baserom) but then credit was removed, and a lot of other things were just outright taken from other well-known hacks with no credit. The user then claimed to have come up with the ideas on his own, even in spite of screenshots and documentation showing otherwise. He also claimed at one point to have "looked at the code for so-and-so and noticed that it was based on so-and-so" when in fact, he had been completely lost until I told him specifically that what he was wanting to do was based on so-and-so and to look at the routine in question to copy it (the routine in question was in Gold, not another hack however. I don't promote stealing) so he really just didn't like giving credit for anything.

Well, I think that's a given huh.

Don't steal and if you do, credit them.

I think this will be done very soon if not just immediately

First of all, thanks :3

Anyways, if I have time, I may toss in EZ-Flash 3-in-1 since it's compatible with the Acekard series, but I'll also add in the GBA Exploader as well for good measure (GBA Exploader being a type of flashing utility for the 3-in-1 that can be used on any DLDI-compatible card). A lot of newer firmwares come with 3-in-1 support though.
