So I'm watching the Ravens/Steelers game and thought I'd bounce around to some other Packers sites. I found this one site that had some strikingly similar icons as we do. In fact, they are identical. Now I don't mind people using graphics I've produced, but at least have the courtesy to acknowledge you did not create them and you stole them and where you stole them from.

I think it's neat that other website owners feel that our graphics are high quality enough for them to use, but show some respect. Ask to use them or hell ask if I can make some for you. One of the purposes of developing your own graphics is so your graphics and website are unique! Having some one steal them defeats that purpose.


You know who you are and you should be ashamed of yourselves.


/whiny bitch session over now :)

hah but I'm not sure if stealing graphics because you lack the skill set to make your own is considered maintaining a website though. ;)

Nah, its not that big of a deal really. It just bugs me that I'm always willing to help others when I can, especially with graphics and these people feel the need to steal from me instead of just asking for assistance. I thought I'd vent my whiney frustration to the PH masses :)

Obviously I'm not worried about that. I provided my reasoning for not disclosing the website already.

You said you didn't want to give a competitor extra traffic. I just want to look-see. Nothing wrong with that.

Well... what did you expect? If you don't want to make people curious then don't bring it up. Now you're going to claim you're not paranoid?

How do you tell the guy who has a finger hovering over the BAN button he started a thread he shouldn't have?

I'm up for a roadtrip. I say we go over there and tear some sh!t up.
Zero, can you make us some torches & pitchfork graphics to take along?
You do know once exposed, folks will meander over here, so you may want to put out a few chairs while we are away.

Oh, and beer! We'll need lots of beer...

What the hell?! Where are the beer graphics?
We have 2 :spam2: :spam: graphics and no beer?
Do they have any beer icons over there we can procure?

or give us beer!!!"

Competitor? Not at all. It's another Packer website, not competition man.

The owners of the sites are members here btw. ;) This is sort of a way of telling them they are being douche bags. lol

It's never a nice thing to have something you spent your precious time slaving over, being stolen. But plagiarism seems to be the rule, not the exception when it comes to the internet unfortunately.
