I’m not gonna’ name names but someone basically took this, changed the content a bit and re-uploaded it without permission (it’s copyrighted).
It might not seem like a big deal, but when you spend months working on a site with multiple other people and then someone just takes it? Yeah its a bit of a fuck you.
At the bottom I got a one liner saying:
Credits to twentytwoo for the website template
Granted they at least credited me, but that’s not really the point. I had several issues with this:
- Apparently the guy got paid $300 to make the bot, and steal my site (up for debate)
- They didn’t ask
- That content is copyrighted
- The source code is privated, so they just pulled some
wget -ron it
- I don’t even know what they were using it for initially
- It’s not a template
- I made that site for Miki, and all I get from someone who steals stuff is “credibility” or “exposure” from some people I don’t even know.
Maybe I’m overreacting a bit, but yeah, it kind of pissed me off a bit. I think post people kind of get annoyed when you take their work and re-purpose it without asking them first. Hell, I would’ve been fine with them using it if the just asked first.
I don’t really want to start drama about it all, just an apology or whatever.
EDIT: Fuck Hifumi.
