    We (the staffers) always thought, people are smart enough to figure out, that stealing other people's work is a total no-go. Well, apparently, some people didn't get this, especially the new ones.


    The forum rules are currently being completely remade, but until this is done, one new rule has to be added:

    You'd think people would have common sense, but apparently that's difficult to come by these days. Hopefully this ought to curb the amount of people stealing things.

    The same here. I don't even remember how many times content of my hack had been stolen. Finally I see something like this, which makes me happy when knowing that my days of sadness are finally gone.

    Not that it will guarantee a change, though.

    There will be a new rule set coming soon, but even then, it should be common knowledge that stealing content from other hacks isn't tolerated, regardless if you ripped it from a ROM or used leaked code. If you want to do stuff, do it yourself. Anyone who posts stolen content gets banned, and that's final. The SSRG isn't a playground where you can do anything you want to, there has to be guidelines in place.

    I don't know why anyone would steal code from another hack, especially if they


    "respect" other hacks so much. It's just insulting. SOTI, kick some ass!
