Am I over-reacting?
I don't really think you're over-reacting. Your walls were used without your permission and that's against your TOU. However, looking at your TOU here? You do say "....without prior permission". So that makes it seem that you might say "yes" if someone were to ask.
Using your textures without your permission and not giving credit is a dick move. But honestly- if that person would have asked, would you have given permission? If so, maybe you two can work it out so that the post is edited to show that permission was given? (Even if it would be after the fact.)
Those are really pretty walls and it would be a shame if they weren't available anymore. Someone liked your work enough to want to reuse it. That's a compliment more than anything. But YES! the person should've asked. Ohhhh... wait-

Funny, I read that stuff. Hmmmm. Obviously some people don't? Not only that, they barely read other creator's TOU? (Referencing the person who made those walls there, lol.)
If the person had messaged me and asked. I would have more than likely said yes, go ahead. But just give me credit and include a link. Other creators have asked to modify my walls and I have said yes.
What annoyed me more was that this person posted numerous times previously that she was making these walls and gave the impression that she was solely responsible for them. For example HERE and HERE
At no point in those posts does she mention were or who the walls came from. But she was more than capable of posting was she planned to do with them.
I do agree the walls are gorgeous. But then the wallpaper/patterns are from Colour Lovers and they are always cool.
But no way would I give permission after the "anywho" response. That's just me though, MLC's response is probably better.
Seriously though: That person's response to this does tick me off. I don't see a lot of respect for other creators there. I see a "I'm gonna make what I want and who cares if anyone likes how I did it" attitude. But I've mellowed out a lot since I started creating for the game, a year or 2 ago I'd have been "How dare they?!?". Then I realized that attitude doesn't stop others from using meshes/textures/whatever without permission. So instead of getting mad, I get even: I don't download anything from anyone with an attitude like that person's.
Yes, that means I won't be downloading any of those walls. Since I can make my own walls* that's more that person's loss than mine.
*not necessarily with Deb's textures..even though she'd let me use them, lol
I was spurred on to make these. LOL
The stucco walls in wood instead of white.
P.S. @mustluvcatz - Of course you could use my walls.
Had a giggle to myself about this,
Quote:Well then, as soon as I can get mediafire to show my files I’ll delete them. I’ve been fighting with it for days now so I can’t promise it will be today.Why not just pull them from the site?
Respect for other creators and their TOU must come with age. Obviously this person is very young and in my experience the young ones don't know the difference between right and wrong.
Quote:As for claiming them as my own, you’re credited in the read me and I’m sorry that I didn’t put “THANKS TO SAILFINDRAGON!” in the post since people barely read those as it is.Sounds like she may be projecting her habits on others. I always read thanks in posts and quite often thank the original creator, along with the person whose item I'm commenting on.
*sending big hug to Deb
You're not overreacting at all.
Her throw-away response and dishonest claim and crediting is unfortunately all too common.
But don't be surprised if something snarky appears on her tumblr to replace it.
amazon wishlist because Lee said so.
