I’m closing the ask box for a while.
I graduate from high school next month and I’ve got a lot of emotional stress I have to deal with so I’m going to close the ask box. I’m sorry for any future inconveniences but I really need a break to sort out what to do with my life.
You get called out by three different people, three times on different URLs - thewalkingdixon (which you were asked to take themes down before) then you switched to bitchmagnets (where you had your second strike) - and is now thedirtythree or maybe stokedforthislasagna. We are keeping you on the list because you only take down your stolen themes for a brief moment - and then make themes again that happen to involve stolen code. We don’t like to name and shame, but people DO need to keep an eye out for you, especially when you threaten and attack people if they confront you.
We also are 80% sure you are also the anon who harassed us because we wouldn’t put ninpen on the list on YOUR terms because suddenly you then went and did this.
So when we refuse to take your name down from the list of thieves (which I think is warranted because THREE times you’ve been caught) you turn to harassing us on anon and starting a blog to focus your antics on attacking those who called you out.
You make/participate in a blog to call out thieves but there’s only one post - it’s obvious from the sidebar description it’s set out to attack one specific person. The first person who called you out.
And then you say you are getting rape/death/anon hate from ninpen/manatopia? You and your alter-ego “friends” iamtheongreyjoy and minimalismistic are the ones sending in rape and death threats to the theme makers. And there are screencaps sent in as proof: [x] [x] [x] [x]. I have also visited your blog and in one of your latest posts you’ve started to bring in her family members. That’s disrespectful and a new low - not to mention schizophrenia is not a disease, it’s a mental disorder. Try not to be so ignorant.
We believe the fact that you keep trying to change your URL to run away from these accusations and then when confronted by people you post things and then delete them could be used as evidence towards the fact you can’t prove yourself to be the innocent party.
The admins of theme-hunter ARE theme makers and the funny thing is it’s actually a smaller community than you think and we DO talk to one another. It is one thing to steal code and then it is another to threaten people and use the internet to warp the story. Currently, we are more concerned at future possible harassment.
Before you say we’re advocating hate PLEASE DO NOT SEND IN ANY ANON HATE to her. This is merely an FYI post, mainly to make aware of not only a code stealer but cyber bully. Had bitchmagnets (now waltahwhite) taken down her themes, not verbally abused people with rape and death threats, not pretend SHE was the victim, not attacking US because she couldn’t have her way, and just move on - we wouldn’t be posting this. Or addressing this.
We have been informed by the attacked theme makers since the beginning of this year. Again, it was a three-strikes rule that we are now bringing up today.
I am just going to direct people here because this is disturbing IF it’s true.
Made rebloggable because people should be aware of cyber bullies especially if they have been getting away with it for 12 years.
My themes have reached 150,000 hits!
Of course, I know that doesn’t mean that 150,000 people are using my themes right now, but the fact that 150,000 people viewed my themes at some point is astounding. Thank you all so much for everything, you all truly inspire me to continue coding. And speaking of “continuing with coding”…
I’m currently working on a new theme! It might be posted today, it might not, depending on how difficult the coding will be, but it will have lots of customization options and I know you’ll all love it!
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “EDITING” AND “REDISTRIBUTING.”
After this post containing a list of theme-stealing and theme-redistributing blogs was created by theme-hunter, I happened to notice this very childish version of the post floating around on a few role-playing blogs. Those individuals, along with many others, don’t seem to understand the rule most theme makers have against redistributing themes, so I thought I would explain it.
As far as I know, almost all theme makers allow the editing of their themes for personal use. Now, when we say “personal use,” we mean for use on your blog only. As long as you keep the credit intact and use the edited version on your blog only, you can edit the theme to your heart’s content.
Theme makers such as myself have rules regarding what you can do with our themes for a reason: it’s our work. We put so much effort into these themes, spending days upon days of free time building them from scratch. The version we create of our theme is the only version we want.
Now I’ll explain what we mean when we say “do not redistribute our themes.” Taking a theme, editing it, and then re-publishing your version (even if you credit the original creator) is called “redistributing,” and most theme makers have a rule against doing so. It doesn’t matter if you edit it until it’s not even recognizable and you give credit anyway, it’s still redistributing and it’s still against the rules.
