well, the original thread was designated for people who were violating the license, and I alerted Kendaer to the below site, but i wanted to let you all throw hate towards those that ruin the community.  samuraiwar [dot] net has altered the code so that it would appear that he is running the same version of the game as dragoncat and central, earning a higher logd ranking.  People like that are a disgrace and only bring frustration for other servers and the developers themselves.  From the looks of it, they have modified the online list for the ad, without a module, but i have not made any attempts to contact the admin.  Let the people,and the servers they run, who ruin the fun for everyone, forever be known as shameful and an embarrassment upon this community of good people.

Please this is just a question....

Why is listing and rank on the server so important? This has been a hot topic as of late and I cannot figure out why.

The higher something is on the list:
  • A)The people that don't understand the mechanics of it will think it is better
  • B) The ones that are higher up, will be more likely seen, and thus destract from other servers
  • C) People take advantage of this, such as the people that sixf00t4 just posted.
They modified commmon.php, to display a different version of the game, thus they appear higher on the list, as it ranks first by server's game's version, then by other things.

Also, I've found another site: it doesn't *look* as though it's running 0.9.7, and it's got no modules because I play this regularly. However: it does appear in LotGDnet and doesn't link back to the LotGDnet.
lotgdaddiction [dot] com/ - or luekinghost [dot] net/
I play this site myself- I've reported this violation on central, twice, anonymous thru petition.
One thing I have noticed, they used to display their mods in a table as 0.9.8 does, and a lot of their mods seem to be original, but some do bear resemblance to LotGD ones. IE: they have the special with the crystal, and the book and all that, as well as using a version of greystone chapel, it allows anyone to request a marriage, however it used to work as the LotGD one did.. it's not really that though, it's the fact that when it was arranged in a table, and also now, *all* the modules say that they were made by the owner of the site, and they use the avatars module, and lots of similarities like that.

Edit: Sorry, I was ill when I typed this, I meant they didn't seem to be running 0.9.8 code.
Edit: Basically, I typed the wrong thing  Sad

leukinghost.... aka lotgdaddiction has been discussed here before in the days of old (ack... like less than a year ago).... The admins had a nasty habbit of spamming other games (mine included) with messages to join theirs....  I had at one time put leukinghost in my bad word list... hehehe.... spose I should do the same with 0.9.8.

Yeah.. they are, but they don't link back to logdnet, and thus.. they now no longer get any benefit from it.  Yes, because of the one that sixfoot mentioned, we actually added some tools to the code to allow us to ban people from being listed in logdnet.

I've put an edit at the end of my post, I actually meant to type 'I don't think they are running 0.9.8.'
I actually like this site, apart from the claiming others mods and stuff- the admin seem to have a lot of crazy ideas, like 'everyone search for LotGD on google and click on us on page 2 to rank our site higher.'

Nice to see my work is talked about on this site, saw some of my code was on here being pawned off. You can take me off central site directory whatever, dont really care, I have done so much with this game it bears little resemblance to the original code, we have optimized so much and added so many mods its not even funny. I can guarantee you I program everything i make MYSELF, there are the occasional addons that I downloaded from sourceforge when i first started, but since then I have made every single thing myself, I do not steal code nor do i visit other games to see what the use, I have programmed this game for almost 1 1/2 years now and I dont like accusations that I have stolen anything when my code is floating around with others names on it. Bashing my site is fine if you know what your talking about, but if you ask my players they will tell you I have spent alot of my own time trying to make this server better than the rest.

Bottom line is I write my code, angers me to see me on a "hall of shame" list when I have put so much into my game.

For one to have brought it up so much, you aren't making youself look as presentable. One who admits profusely to not doing an act, more than likely has done it. I do believe Cortal has actually shown and built a reputation upon here, as you have not. Judging by your first time in here, you don't seem to be such the nice person, as you are disrespecting much of what has been put up here.

If you have complaints, take them up with the people, rather than posting in this thread. This was only to bring it to the attention of the Core Coders. I suggest that you don't defile your name much anymore, make your point, then allow for others to review it.

Cortal is right. Taken from the very MotD of lotgdaddiction [dot] com:

Do a search for 'lotgd' on msn.com's search, and click us, we are on the second page Wink This will help us grow on msns searching, and maybe on other search directorys also Smiley

As well, how dare ye besmirch a grand game, such as Final Fantasy Tactics, by putting their sprites into your game? For shame!

Now this one I just can't understand
Say nothing and let accusation stand and you are guilty.
Defend yourself and you say that proves you guilty.
By definition you have stated that when accused you are
automatically guilty.

Let me ask you somthing buddy, do you run your own lotgd? If so how would you like it if a bunch of low lifes defiled your site by saying you did nothing, all your hard work gets spat on? How would that make you feel?  And resorting to low name calling is just sad, argue like a human being, not like an idiot.

 I can claim my innocence all i want seeing as I am innocent, if claiming innocence means your guilty...well who the hell is innocent? Frankly I dont care if my name is defiled all over this forum, my code already has been, why not the name that wrote it to.

Hope you have fun shaming games that try hard, seems to make you feel better I guess.

By the way, if you were smart, clicking the link in google and search engines well...raises the sites rankings..Im trying to well, you know, GET MORE PLAYERS, christ, didnt know that was such a horrible crime. Have a great night bashing sites Smiley
