State a reason to why it should be locked...I see no rule breaking or rude behavior (as of late).
judel Wrote:...My solution to this kind of thing is not to use any theme where a copyright in the footer is required. 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

The extent of work for the greater good of the community only goes so far. I wouldn't do skins if I didn't think that they were needed, as others Im sure would agree to. In other words, people aren't going to work to work, that concept falls short in life. Some do, I like to work sometimes just to say I did it, I like to go the extra mile, but it is not too much to ask if I receive some credit for my work is it? It isn't so much that I want to spoil the footer with links, all it is is credit, its standard in web design, is it not?

And FW, no disrespect intended, I am merely suggesting that there are people who spend solid weeks or more on certain themes and work to perfect it, and when someone takes their signature and removes it (sometimes even adding there own, people have done it to me right under my nose), I am sorry if I can't stand it. You know I love your work, I don't need to tell you that Toungue.
