Stick to the topic ? ok.

Someone already made a derivative work of CPG-Nuke 8.2b and he named it PC-Nuke.
He changed all headers to pc-nuke and gave credit to us in his credits.txt
So far i don't see something wrong with that.

Our forum rules say that you can't ask support for derivative works, but instead he was constantly asking support for his derivative work.
So we decided to remove all his support requests and said to him that it isn't allowed.
He got a little mad and saying he was using cpg-nuke although the facts were in his disadvantage.

So if someone wants to create a derivative work keep in mind you must know what you're doing and not just try to lift along with someone else his work.
Just copy/paste isn't enough to have your own websystem.

What I see here is a lot of smart people that should be working together to make a better open source community for everyone. Not creating a feeding frenzy on each other.... One of the things I admire about FB is you never see him in the middle of such clashes as these. He just puts it out there for everyone to use. Now thats standing on level ground, the work speaks for itself.

Thank you pcnuke for your reply also I am going to post an e-mail by one of the person from PC-Nuke team.

As for our involvement of deviating from
cpgnuke. We took that code and went our own way with
it, DDDDDDDDDDDJ seems to think all we did was paste
our stickers over theirs, but if you dig deeper theres
changes happening. We knew CPG came from PHPnuke and
we tried to give credit to both in our headers(plus we
had been openly giving it away for months, nothing
secret in that), but that wasnt enough for DJ who had
to make a few public anouncements on his website that
we were secretly stealing their code, which in turn
caused many of his website members to spam our
website, leaving threatening commits and such, we
still have many of these emails and posts, which we
gave to legal to review. Plus he traced someone who he
thaought owned Pc-Nuke! and posted that persons name
and email address on his site in several location to
feed the member frenzy. DJ finally closed the posting
to those forums, but I believe they were never
removed. But after DJ realized what he had openly done
and I confronted him on it, the situation stopped,
slowed down, and we reopened our website and have
continued business. From the start all we wanted to do
was make programs better. To add our 2 cents, here and
there. We saw some changes that were needed and have
been making those changes. Basically because waiting
on others to make this move usually takes to long. We
know how we want our program and thats what were
doing. If you like this way, use it, if not use
someone elses. To me open source means open source. If
you can take anything weve done and make it better,
get it on....
