Firstly i apologise i missed your initial reply, if i hadn't i would have replied with:benrob0329 wrote:You said that anyone not "the dishonest, untrustworthy thieves" would be fine and covered by an NC license. We pointed out that this is very much untrue, and now we're shunning you? No, I didn't want to dissect your entire paragraph and reply to every part, I had a very specific thing I wanted to correct to avoid misinformation about the lack of consequences NC licenses have. Your post is right above mine, context is easy to obtain.
Not allowing use by people who accept donations, schools, Wikipedia, make ad-revenue, or otherwise recieve compensation (including server owners) is not just an "idealogical movement", its real consequences to choosing a NC license. If you're ok with that, go ahead. Just know that it does more than lighly discourage lawful-evil thieves who for some reason care about the license of what they're stealing.
Yes, these are really legally binding. As the creator of something (at least in the USA) you automatically obtain copyright of it. Any license you then apply is as legally binding as a big ol' EULA most companies provide, within the enforcability of the specific license (WTFPL is most likely not enforcible, for example).
Ah i hadn't thought of this, my only thoughts at first where to simply protect the users because of that license already in place on some of my images, which are obviously easily replaceable.
Until Parasite mentioned clearly what i read behind RubenWardy's link, which also made sense i didn't even realize that it was more than to prevent people outright reusing stuff for profit. What's worse is this in fact has absolutely nothing to do with why i put that license in place.
As for your post stating i am being shunned just made me realize that maybe my initial thoughts on the community are a bit wonky. Do it our way or we will gang up on you and scare you away, and all this in a thread about advertising minetest WTF
Even the very first line on that paragraph should have been enough for anyone with the slightest bit of common sense to see what i actually think.
I quote myself, what a joke.
Not once have i said that i would do this for further projects and i clearly explained why this time round. Now if this is how you are going to treat newcomers who are only just grasping the ropes and learning how the community works, only putting up WIP's until everything is in order then i guess there are bigger issues here than just ganging up on me for a half a sentence. All sounds a bit off to me.I know all this is open source and based on 'freedom' and free stuff. Even if i agree this should not feel like it's an obligation.
Is this the sort off thing you are going to advertise to bring and keep people here?
And finally what's a community that is shunning me expecting me to do now?
