My first plugin - TagCLoud

I have edited a Lex plugin (Tagcloud) downloaded from The code is very unoptymalized, should I paste this plugin here ?

Are you sure the mybbcentral licence allows you to modify and redistribute their plugins? I am pretty sure they don't so you are just asking for an IP ban from them.....
It wasn't made by ? I was looking and I couldn't find any other links.
Leaving information about author won't change anything ?
Well Lex is from and both 1.2 and 1.4 tagcloud plugins are available for download there under their subscriber program so I can't imagine them giving permission to redistribute it. Leaving the authors credit does not make a difference, their licence states:

I don't know for sure but I am 90% sure plugins by Lex would also be distributed under this licence.
I think Tag cloud plugin is not from Lex, it was developed by labrocca, if I am right.. You have to get permission from them, not with this community Watt.
The 1.2 tagcloud was by Lex, the 1.4 one was from Labrocca I am pretty sure. Is this plugin for 1.4?
Have you got any contact to author ?

Yeah I know, he has closed his site to all members except his subscribers. I did post a thread for you on there asking about the plugins distributed on MyBB turkey but I don't know how quickly he will reply.
