Modding Genesis' Rules & Regulations discussion

(can't believe I forgot to create this one before, but better late than never)

If there's anything about the forum rules which you aren't sure about or think should be changed, do so here.
Always remember, however, to make sure your post is well structured and thought out before making any observation about the rules.
Also bear in mind we reserve the right to decide if, when and how we would/should comment on your posts and we also reserve the right to change the way this topic will work at any time in the future.

-the Staff

ps: this opening post is likely going to go under a rewrite.

Reason: Added the link, as most people here probably haven't read the rules (or haven't done so in a long time).

Perhaps there should be something which specifically addresses skin theft. "Taking credit for other's hard work is not permitted, do not pass go, do not collect £200 etc."

One warning should be sufficient, imo, but maybe two if the people demand a harsher sentence.

That's pretty much already in there (if only implied):
We forbid the request of:

Illegal copies of copyrighted software (ROMs, Warez)
Methods of circumventing copyright protection (Cracks, CD Keys, mod chips)
Illegal copies of copyrighted music (MP3s), movies, videos, or any other type of media, except if you have consentment of the owner
Methods of cheating in online games
I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that includes skins as well.

Can't hurt to state it explicitly though.

Generally a 3 way comparison between the TML of the two "clones" and the original is good enough, unless someone claims there is a similar source in which case you'll have to compare them to that too to check the similarity isn't coincidental.
