As everyone knows, alot of people are trying to get UD back here on DF for everyone to enjoy. But some people are not following simple "rules" of the community, as in credit the original developer of items if you use them and ask to use them first, asking first is mostly a theme guide line.
i received a phone call telling me all this earlier today and wanted to put a response to it all up on DF, so its not a he / she battle all over again.
As many know, Redman ported themes from bgill without asking first, then bgill responded with a theme that bootlooped your phone once installed. From what i have been told Bgill removed the item after a few minutes knowing he was wrong, and i have been told he apologized for what he did. As far as Bgill goes i asked during my phone call that he not be banned on DF for what he did. He knew he was wrong but, was plain out mad with Redmans actions.
Once before a theme from Bgill was ported to UD that upset him bc of not asking first and crediting it correctly. The issues was resolved by talking to Bgill and being okayed to port themes as long as credited correctly, but it was not okayed for Redman to do so. Previous talks involved Srtfool and Bgill about it when it happened before.
As far as Redman goes, he has been banned on UD and i believe DF as well. Post were made on UD stating that you needed to ask first to port themes and credit them correctly. Many will say me or BD should have caught it, but we dont ask everyone who ports a theme or posts it that they asked the dev and it was okayed, we assumed they would do that on there own. i can not say how long the ban will last for, but so apologizes from Redman will be needed to alot of people before anything for unbanning is even discussed.
As far as this happen again, we will be now asking if the theme was okayed to be ported before they release it and as far as Bgill's themes go i am gonna see if he would like to port them himself to avoid any further headaches, everyone at some point has used a theme from him bc they are plain out awesome.
I would like to apologize to Bgill for this happening again with his themes. But more so the users of UD that were affected by the bootlooping theme in the IRC. Me and BD will be making more of a push to avoid these issues and make it that themes are not ported with out the okay of the dev.
This is not a resolution or anything, just what point it is at now.
Please do not move thread, this was discussed with an admin of DF on the phone as to being posted here.
