As some of you may have noticed, a mod has had to be taken down - Darth Jaden's "Jedi Robe Reskins Council Style" due to issues with plagiarism.

I'm going to reiterate what you were told here, since some of you clearly still aren't getting this: plagiarism is strictly prohibited by the rules both of this site and of this modding community.

For those of you who don't know what plagiarism means, here's a dictionary definition:

Plagiarize Pla"gia*rize, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Plagiarized; p. pr. & vb. n. Plagiarizing.] To steal or purloin from the writings of another; to appropriate without due acknowledgement (the ideas or expressions of another).

Let us be quite clear on this: if you take work or elements of the work of another modder and attempt to use them in your mod without permission and/or acknowledgement where required by the author, you will be found out, and you will be punished. This sort of behaviour is not and will not be tolerated on this website.

We don't particularly want to brow-beat you continually, or to have to keep posting news posts like these, but continued issues with this are forcing the issue. Hopefully we can draw a line under this and move on.

-Darth InSidious
