Not Solved Designers: What do you do when you find a forum that removed your copyright?
Not Solved

On the contrary, I spend a good amount of time on any of my free themes.
But one thing I will not do any longer is require a footer link, because it is pointless. Some people may want to keep it, some people might not like linking to another board, whatever the reason. It is there, but if people want to remove it that's fine with me.

I'm not creating these themes for my own benefit, so I see no reason to require the copyright. The themes are for the community, so the community can do what they will with them.

I could just imagine if everyone who created something that I used in my forum wanted that link. My footer would be a foot long. I don't think so. It's also pretty ridiculous to compare a theme or other coding to the mybb software itself. Of all of them, only mybb stands on its own as a software. Your themes and plugins wouldn't work without it, so I feel it is justified having a mybb link in my footer. Not saying that the themes and plugins aren't appreciated by those that use it. I appreciate every person that has created a plugin that I use on my forum. I just won't show that appreciation with a copyright link in my footer. Wink
Agreed. Smile
