Thread: Alot of Thieves and Liars...

  1. #1
    Default Alot of Thieves and Liars...
    I'm sorry if I offend anyone... We all have to admit that when we first JB our phones, we add every source possible... Legit or not. I've noticed alot of people on here requesting icons and widgets for themes they quote "Bought". When I first JB my phone, I was checking out forums on here, . And the funny part is I find Users on here that beg and plead for themers to make them icons and then go turn around the same day and post them on pirated sites....WTF is that? You guys know who you are and SHAME on you for being a thief and then attempt to claim it's your creation. I know of at least 15 pol on here currently doing this. Over time, us educated users learn to appreciate the time and effort these guys put into their work. So, to sum it up..... If it was your work, would you want some a**hole doing this to you? Probably not!! Sorry for this thread but I am absolutely disgusted!

    Agreed, I've even talked to insanelyi Admin and he said do not go request icons, Have some respect to some other people.
    I've boughten over 5+ themes now and realised it's alot better than pirated themes. Most of them don't work anyways xD.
    Yeah Toy, we're talking about you.
    jklol

    It is sad, the theme creators spend countless hours making the themes for us, and sometimes it's leaked before it is even released (still in the Beta stages), this happened to Bluemetal's LivOS, unbelievable!! But what can be done.
    I have great admiration for the themers here, a lot of work and once they release a theme then 10 times more work (support) they are all great people and to have their creations stolen must be very very annoying and sole destroying, but, they keep making new themes.. Thank you all.

    Yeah, but as soon as it's posted it's up for grabs for everybody, and you can't go too far with security as you end up losing traffic. Besides, of the 1,000's of users of this site, it's just a handful of bad eggs! 99% of users here are pretty honest.

    I just don't understand how people ask for icons, widgets etc.... Go to another forum and then claim them as their own! It's like they live in a "Fantasy Land"

    Great thread to vent in, I just wish it would do some good. The mods here are behind you guys/gals. We support you and ban/infract everyone who suggests stealing apps or themes.
    I know it sucks, but please keep up with the great themes.

    I tend to not "B**ch" about things but it's utterly mind blowing. After being a noob for a while, you would figure people would catch on and see that their are some good people out there trying to help one another

    Maybe I'm hoping that people who are here to pirate others work see this and think twice.

    Yeah.... The noobies don't know any better yet and haven't learned the ropes.... But, you will come across some who have some time under their belt and throwing up screenies left and right of that!
    Good point Chelsea!

    3 weeks ago a guy told me he is 15 years old, has no money and asked for a free beta of my latest theme. He leaked it 1 day later as his "crack".
    I told him he is a d... As..... but he asked me again for new betas. Unbelievable but true.
