I am sick of it you want to make a public debate of everything
Well, it still beats messing with people behind their backs.
and whine whine whine I am done with you.
Yes, you're too busy to speak freely.
Too busy to set things straight.
But never too busy to push the team to reject me. As long as there's no potential customer
to witness it...
I'm sure right now you're asking them to ban me for being so awfully unfair to you, because you can't say in public what's wrong with me. What would customers say...
Yes, you're in trouble because I don't mind my reputation, and I don't mind losing "customers" over a fight. However, your clone of Aeva is the last straw. I may lose all of my customers, but I'll retain my dignity. You lost yours a long time ago.
Interestingly, there's no further word about the LOGICAL reason behind this mod behind greenlighted when it's against the rules. And even if there WAS any doubt as to whether my mods were "offered" on the mod site or not, anyone in the customizer team (eh, Nibogo?) could have PMed me and cleared this with me. None such thing, of course. Because no one even wondered whether to put this online. Because you're one of the "greenlighters". You gotta love double standards!
Has anyone ever wondered why in these 3 years I've been working on Aeva, there has never been a clone of it online? Because it does the job, and there's no need for a bad clone! And now, 2 weeks after I've moved my files to my website, I'm seeing quickly made replacements for both Aeva Lite and YTBBC. Would it hurt the SMF team so much to actually START TALKING with me about this, and listening to my requests, rather than just try to make their users accept low-quality versions of mods just because they won't aknowledge my website?
vbgamer, you may have argued that "SMF Media Gallery" was close to "SMF Gallery". I didn't get to choose the name, you can complain to Dragooon about that. Once I got full rights to the mod, my first move was to rename it to finally avoid any confusion. So that doesn't count. Actually, it counts the other way -- it goes to show that I did my best not to conflict with you. I never wanted to hurt you in any way. Now you're openly fighting me by releasing a mod with similar purpose, and a very similar name
It's always about how much you can make profit of everything and everyone. You just don't know where to stop. I remember reading somewhere last month about a forum platform that had been shut down, leaving many people without a home. The news bite mentioned a backup forum created for people to coordinate their actions to recover from the blow. I started reading the boards a bit... And guess *who* was there, posting a topic trying to make profit off these people
? Yes... You, vbgamer45. You were advertising your own platform. To people who had just lost their forum, all of their posts, all of their members. And you came there, and said, "we're sorry for your loss and because of that, we're offering one free month on our commercial platform!"... Yay. Don't you know where to stop? Don't you know how to respect others, and not always turn their worries into a way to make money for you?
I found it disgusting when I saw your post. I didn't mention it until now, but I'm through with your methods now.
Guys, don't let yourself be fooled. vbgamer45, as always, is here to exploit your confusion. His "AEMP" mod was made in a hurry to compensate for the loss of Aeva Lite on the mod site (apparently, a direct link
doesn't count. The agony!)
Actually, it's more than that -- because of the very similar names, he wants you to believe
he's the new developer of Aeva Lite, when Aeva is very much alive. He's trying to make you think that "Auto Embed Media Pro" is the follow-up to "Aeva Embed Video/Audio Lite". No, it's NOT, and I'll never condone this mod. I won't let this mod be where it is, because it reflects exactly what the SMF team has been doing to me ever since I was invited to join the developer group with no intention of giving me an actual position: the bigger the smile, the bigger the exploiting.
They could just apologize for wasting my time for the last 3 years, but they won't. Instead, they'll approve this kind of shit and actually blame me for getting angry at them.
Who am I to sue, now?
