Whatever I've done no longer falls under SSoW's requests for consideration. Now it's officially "do whatever the hell you want" as the majority is going to anyway. I obviously don't speak for any of the lovely people I've had the pleasure of working on things with.

hug Raeven!

I'm sorry the meanness of short-sighted people have caused you pain, even with an incredibly generous policy. Thank you for everything you have given and contributed to the Sims community over the years! hug

What was the old policy? "Provide credit"? I don't think that's something which should have to be asked for: anyone with decency should give credit when they use other people's work.

I think the idea that the majority is going to do what they want with it is overly cynical. Even though I see cloning/fileshare policies as silly, I believe in respecting the creator's wishes unless there is no other way for the content to be distributed. Being antagonistic to people who otherwise quite happily give their stuff away strikes me as not a very good plan.

But antagonizing some creators IS ok?
Wow, Seriously? Anyone who does not give you what you want deserves to be bullied, beat up, and have it just taken from them anyway.

As soon as you throw an "unless" in you are NOT respecting anyone's wishes - you are serving yourself and yourself alone. Either people have the right to make their gift giving conditional or they do not. Either you choose to honor the wishes of others or you don't. It's really that simple.

Claiming to respect another's wishes while maintaining that you'll do so as long as it is convenient for you is nothing short of hypocritical. It makes as much sense as a guy stranded alone on an island wanting praise for not cheating on his wife or a 5th grade bully feeling mighty good about himself for not punching you in the eye all week when you didn't/couldn't resist.

I did not change my ridiculously super-convenient-for-you "policy" of wanting credit for what I've done and no one else profiting financially for it for the sake of the hypocrites. I did it for the sake of the fine folks who have not crumbled under the weight of their own selfishness and maintain the fight against them. I adore that they have lasted this long and have tremendous respect for them. So now when I give up and never come back, or get hit by a bus or whatever, the Good Guys left behind will have one less battle to fight. They, frankly, need a break and I have nothing else to offer to the people I treasure so.
