The Permissions Thread (returned)........

Okay so seeing as I've had 4 emails and a PM in the last two days concerning permissions I'll try to recomplie as much from the original thread which this dumbass Admin accidently deleted the first time round. (still. Mistakes do happen).

Anyway, three catagories are available so anyone who mods or models can they come forward and state which group they need to be added (I'm opening this to modders as well, due to constraints on such things as GUI's etc.etc).

CREDIT MUST BE GIVEN IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES
(This is necessary in all circumstances but simply means that those named below do not require contacting before usage is allowed)

- Deemon
- Pneumonic81
- Porty
- Icewolf132

PERMISSION MUST BE REQUESTED BEFORE USAGE
(With this you must attempt to contact the original author in any way possible. Credit will still be required as well in all circumstances)

- Phantom
- Fleet Operations (direct personal contact is necessary with either Optec or DocaCola)
- Epytron Omega
- Atlantis
- CaptSyf
- Elrond
- Achilles
- Mcdoogle

NO EXTERNAL USEAGE IS ALLOWED
(This means that no modder/modeller is allowed to re-release ANY materials which a persons listed below have previously created. Personal unreleased usage would still be allowed, unless otherwise specified)



NOTE - This list is correct at time of printing. However, any part of it can be changed at any time.

Any work by me, Atlantis, goes in the "PERMISSION MUST BE REQUESTED BEFORE USAGE" category :-)

anything done by me goes into the "CREDIT MUST BE GIVEN IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES" catergory, but permission must be obtained if someone wants to modify my work (redo the textures, do a kitbash, ect.)

PERMISSION MUST BE REQUESTED BEFORE USAGE

I am in this category MaP. If it is a "combined effort" model (e.g. the Sentury class I made using the "Coir De Lion" mesh, or the BOP II) would require permissions from all parties involved.

ALL MY MATERIALS:

PERMISSION MUST BE REQUESTED BEFORE USAGE

I am also in this category.

I must however add that teams such as Future Tense, Microverse, and other long-term teams I am on can use my modding materials WITH the word given that they will not leak it to another party or parties without my permission. If I see any materials that another party or parties "claim" to have made themselves but I find out that I made them and they didn't credit it properly, I won't only just be extremely pissed and issue banning(s), but legal reprecutions will also be felt.

My original policy on my own materials was that they could be used with just credits. That has indeed changed, as I believe it necessary now, especially with the increasing amount of infringements on intellectual copyrights, as we have seen in some "files" on a certain other site that shall remain nameless in this post...

Might I add that anyone who does not read this thread and ends up committing a violation of the above will NOT be exempt from this rule. Ignorance of the law or the rules is NO excuse.

I seriously think this thread is the best thing since sliced bread. I also totally agree with Elrond in
"Ignorance of the law or the rules is NO excuse."

I like to use the the 3d tool to make various scenes and things, and use Prt Scrn to show them to replicate scenes that happened in Chatroom sims. Its for a small RP group. So far I only released pictures with Armada and Armada II default models and credited the models to Activision. Problem is I havent been able to figure out how to contact any of the modelers I need to use thier models in a scene. I have created various scenes, but havent released any of them to my RP group (To use in logs and such)because I dont have permission to do so, and Using an art program for explosions and damage on the pictures probably qualifies as modifying the models.

Are people like 9of9 and Deemon members of this Forum that I can send a private message to? I know deemon is under the Give Credit catagory, but Some pictures I make alters lighting and stuff(Not to the physical models themselves, but to the pictures) and I wanted to request permission for that. I would apreciate any advice any of you could give.

Your going to find its difficult to contact most of those listed in my thread opener, so the only option is to provide the necessary credit and if there are any issues then those involved will probably contact you directly.
