indeed it would be, now can you pass the author test… no cheatingHow embarrassing! What if I don’t pass? Am I automatically fired?!
Whew, I passed. You can now send me emails through my profile.
ok here is a question… these people who are buying these files of ours and uploading them to link not removed because it wasn’t there … are they actually doing anything illegal…? I am totally against it, I am just asking…Yes. Also, thanks for not using a link!
The reason why I started this thread is not to go over this again, but to give answers to the other threads and peoples questions. If we decide what to do here, we wont have to go over it again. So, anyone from staff want to sum up what we as authors could do, and what staff does? This way, everyone will know what is going on. Thanks for everyones attention.I understand that and I am not trying to get on you for starting the thread. I know you are trying to get a solution, not make problems. Thank you and everyone else who is trying to find solutions.
Here is the process(sorry it’s so vague, but it needs to be):When the staff receives a complaint, they investigate, contact the offender, and 99% of the time that takes care of that specific problem. I and other staff members periodically troll the repeat offender’s sites and report anything we find, but most of the reports come from users.
Here is the summary of what we can do: 1) Seek and report any violations. 2) Contact me directly if you have any ideas that may help. 3) When these posts do occur, don’t post links to ANY sites or give ANY indication of how to find them.
Again, don’t think that I am trying to shut you guys down. You are the good guys! This situation just plain sucks and I am sorry for that.
Chuck is right, you don’t need to give support to those who don’t appear to have bought your file. That is why we have systems in place telling you whether or not the person has bought your file.
As far as fighting the problem goes, I promise the staff is just as concerned about it as the authors. Much of the support staff’s time is spent stomping out violations. I hope there is a better solution than just fighting each one on a case by case basis. I am open to and welcome new ideas if you have them. If you do have a potential solution please email it to me instead of starting a new thread. I promise I will study it, take it seriously, and implement it if it will really help the problem. All posting about it where everyone can see does is worsen the problem. I know some of you guys get frustrated that these post keep getting squashed, but I hope you understand the reasoning.
He also gets an official FlashDen high 5. He is the first and quite possibly the last to receive this great honor.
was that an offical competition?? as it’s said in title it’s unoffical.. so wining such a competition should not get rewarded with a “won a competition” badge.. if that’s okay, i can also start an unoffical competition that only i am suitable to win to get that badge
If you start an “unofficial” competition with 350 posts, I will make it official too.
Congrats chuck! Send me your paypal account so I can send you $25 from me and $50 from FD. I’m putting the request in for your badge right now.
Maybe you should make one Lance.
I would, but I don’t know. I have asked FlashJunkie too many times. He must be sick of me asking!
Did chuck win? I’m sure he did, but I didn’t see the post announcing it.
