This year, with the amount of new members and new modders, things have gotten a bit hectic. I'd like to take a moment to recognize this and let you all know about the rules. If you're going to use someone's mod to any extent, you must, must, ask for permission first. Whether it's going to be modded beyond recognition or you just have a quick idea to throw into a mod. GET PERMISSION. There have been a few members around lately showing some severe dislike for the blatant disregard other modders are showing towards them. All I am asking is that you take a minute before completing your mod and ask the person who's mod you are basing your work off of, "hey can I use your mod as a base?" It doesn't take long. If they say no, they say no. If they say yes, make sure to give them credit. If you just take their work and do not credit them, you are pirating work and not showing respect.
Just please, everyone, if you're basing your work off someone elses mod, ask permission. It may take a while longer to complete your project, but you'll feel better knowing you have permission. :wtg:
