Copyrighted Imagery and God Modding

Copyrighted Imagery and Usage Help


Because there was an issue with this in another thread on this forum, I will take a few seconds to address it here.

When someone copyrights their work (and by law any work is copyrighted the moment it becomes established in a tangible medium, like ink and paper); the user can stop anyone else from redistributing that work in any and all forms only if the user is attempting to redistribute the work for some form of gain. (For the most part, as there are technical and legal complexities to numerous to establish here, this is the gist of the law.)

There is a clause in copyright law called the 'Fair Use Act'. This means that you can mention or illustrate copyrighted materials for a variety of purposes that fall within the natural context of everyday live. (Reviews; general discussion in printed format, like our forums; fan art and avatars are all examples of Fair Usage Instances).

Painting ichigo on a mug to drink your favorite beverage from, for the most part, is Fair Use. Painting Ichigo on a mug and turning around to sell said mug industrially or even to your friends, is not. I hope this helps clarify things.

(The author of this text does not claim perfect legal knowledge in the matters relating to Domestic and International Copyright law. The preceding was meant only to be used as guidelines and do not reflect any legal or defensible council appropriate to the courtroom environment. When seeking legal recourse, seek legally qualified representation.The above statement does not qualify, not claim to qualify, as such.)

God Modding & You!


This is a thread that has made it's way to every RPG forum I've gone to. I wish to have it stickied here as well for all to see and bask in it's wisdom which came from I don't even know where.

GODMODDING
There are many types of Godmodders. The most commonly thought of are those who are all powerfull, and never get hit, and never miss their target. FEH. Well, in fact there are many other types of godmodders, and even multiple spellings for the word. Lets watch!

Types of Godmodders:
►The people who never miss a single shot no matter how hard it is (Aimbotters).
►The people who can't be hit or just shrug it off (god-moders).
►The people who never are without a weapon and ammo (idkfa-ers).
►The people who have absurdly strong powers (twinks).
►The people who 'balance' thier characters by having a massive but irrelevant weakness and massive powers (min-maxers).
►The people who use Out Of Character knowledge to get an edge (Miss Cleos).
►The people who do things in hindsight (McFlys).
►The people who RP other people's characters for them (Puppetmasters).
►The people who RP completely irrelevant things (Daydreamers).
►The people who RP actions and time against others while the others aren't present OOC, but are IC (Shoe elves).
►The people who ignore or alter RPs that they don't like (Revisionists).
►The people who RP an absurdly time consuming sequence occuring between other people's actions (Speedhackers).
►The people who play as characters that are completely impossible (Oxymorons).
►The people who arbitrarily declare themselves the winner with instant death attacks (Baghdad Bobbits).
►The people who've taken actions before they start RPing (Gaseous Snakes).
►The people who pull-in elements that were approved in an unrelated RP (Augustines).
►The people who use an existing persona and only RP them when it helps (Batmen).
►The people who alter thier character as needed for the situation (Zoicite).
►The people who declare thier IC threads safe, but readily attack others (NIMBYs).
►The people who gain abilities as they need them with no prior exposure (Trinities).
►The people who pick-up things that spawn from seemingly nowhere (Quakers).
