    This argument you guys are having, is fairly irrelevant and it's a pretty good definition of Two pots calling each other a black kettle. if you guys are really disappointed with how things turned out, I've already heard apologies from you both but its time for action. time is the only thing that will heal these issues, there have been people in the past who were considered at one time the worst in the community and have since become reputable, Georgiemoon comes to mind to me immediately. If you guys want to be Developers and make vehicles, that's fine but make some original work, I've seen some evidence of Husky attempting to do this, Even though at first he absolutely released vehicles On this very website, with parts stolen from my vehicles.. still its not about the past, its about right now. and right now, we're in the wake of a very stressful very dramatic week. we just need to relax, and get the hell over it. and discourage the kids who are continuing the leaking and the drama. It's just absolutely out of hand.

    I was in the middle of writing a reply that I feel was very civil, when it was closed (RIP ME) but I think some things need to be said, (Don't have a heart attack staff)
     
    My Reply.
     
    Straight... I'm of the opinion that the only Reputation you have damaged in this whole ordeal is your own.
    Being a developer who you've directly attacked with your friends for absolutely zero reason at all 
    (I've never met you before I was told that you were passing off my work as your own saying you "Recreated it".
    In fact I still have never really met you and frankly I don't care to after all this drama) 
    If your apology is sincere I will accept it. But I'm going to wait and see if your actions speak louder than your words here
    and hope that you either truly change your ways or distance yourself from the bad influences around you.  (Looking at you Recluse, and you too Husky, even still)
     
    And for the record, to everyone that reads this people have said that LCPDFR has been dying since 2014.. It never really happens... 
    I'm sure anyone who's been here awhile may remember LCPD-MODS eh? maybe not since there's a ton of new people around here these days 
    but People have always looked for something to hate around here, and most of the time this website gets the brunt of it. If you all want the Community to grow, 
    there's a very easy way to do it, Be nice to people, Teach people if they don't know something. Treat staff with some respect if you want respect back, 
    because at the end of the day when crap hits the fan, they're the ones you're going to need, and also if you feel the community team here isn't doing a good job, ever thought about applying? or at least ask if they need a little help before bashing them? . If you're a "Developer" challenge yourself to learn new things and be Original, 
    as opposed to the totally unoriginal and immature act of stealing/leaking other peoples work, with zero respect for it or the person that worked on them,
     even in some cases as mentioned before passing it off as your own.  
     
    There's my two cents for free kid, if you really want to change your ways then that's fantastic. 
    but you're going to need to show it before a lot of people who know the whole story believe it. 
     
    (To Everyone) This community and the mod itself, have brought a lot of good times, to a lot of good people over the years
    and I'm disappointed to see how toxic the community has gotten, this isn't LSPDFR's fault. It's our fault.
    If you think that this is LSPDFR's fault, In my opinion, you're part of the problem
    Sincerely, XBR410

    Not AJ reacted to Sam in Our Community - What we stand for & How to get involved   
    With all the talk about LSPDFR 0.4, it's been a little while since we've provided a general update on our community.  Of course, LSPDFR 0.4 is our main priority at the moment and we'll have more to say about it shortly, but we thought it important to also address and announce a couple of things regarding our community.
     
    What our Community stands for
     
    Before anything else, I'd like to take a moment to reflect on who we are, as people that run this website, and as a community.
     
    LCPDFR was founded, back in 2009, simply because I thought it'd be a fun thing to do.  To play as the police in GTA IV.  It was an idea, ambitious for its time, and nothing more.  I worked on LCPDFR because it was fun, I published it because I thought others might also enjoy it.  LCPDFR has come a long way since then, it has evolved from one person's topic on a forum, to its own website, to its own forum, to its own community.  We've spanned two games, our reach has grown massively, our community is approaching 300,000 registered members.  The amount of work that goes into developing LSPDFR alone is staggering - the time that we've spent on it is measured not in days, weeks or months, but years.  Likewise, the effort required to keep our website online is vastly underestimated - in the past month we've served around 30 terabytes of download traffic alone, and have done all of this despite persistent, targeted denial of service and hacking attacks against us.  To put this in context, if you were to serve 30 terabytes of data through Amazon Web Services, it'd cost you $3,000 a month - and that's just one month of download traffic. 
     
    Why do we do this?  Because it's fun.  We love developing our community, we love developing our mod, and we love that other people - complete strangers, from all over the world, from countries you've probably never heard of, from all walks of life... we love that they love LSPDFR.  Our community has achieved incredible things: we've created an entire gaming phenomenon and we've developed things that nobody ever thought would be possible.  Our members have done more than simply play games or make mods: we've fought hand-in-hand against corporate giants (and won), we've transformed peoples' entire lives by sparking new careers and we've been covered everywhere from massive YouTube channels to mainstream media publications.  Heck, we've even triggered out of touch government ministers in Australia.
     
    That's not the whole story, though.  Sometimes we are the story.  Sometimes we make mistakes.  We've had catastrophes, like the time where we had a hyped countdown on the website only to reveal a private testing version of LCPDFR that nobody could access.   Our first ever livestream had to be rescued by Steve and Jeff after it started with Prophet driving a train around Los Santos and infamously stating "this is not the preview for LSPDFR 0.3" while our community manager could do nothing but watch helplessly after being accidentally disconnected.  We've messed up releases, we've announced things too quickly, and sometimes we've not announced things at all.   
     
    Yet, despite all of this.  Nine years later, we're still here.  We're still making mods, we're still developing this community, and we've stuck true to our principles the entire time:
    Our community is open to all. We treat members equally regardless of their status. Everything is completely free of charge, with no catches.  
    Why?  It's not about fame, it's not about money, it's not about status.  It's about love.  We love LCPDFR, we love LSPDFR, and we love our community.  We don't think that modding should be hidden in private Discord servers.  We don't think that modding should be something people pay for.  We don't think that modding should be an ego boost.
     
    We just think that modding should be fun.  It should be open, and it should be free.  That's what we stand for, and that's what we do.
     
    How you can get involved
     
    Last year, we opened up applications to join our Community Team for the first time.  This resulted in a couple of new faces joining our moderation team and upon reflection, we think it's a good change in approach from previously handpicking staff members ourselves.  We've decided to open these applications again, and would invite anyone who is interested in volunteering some of their free time to moderating our community to apply by following the link below.  Our volunteer Community Moderators are a vital part of everything that we do, and it wouldn't be possible to maintain the community without them.

    So, Ive been thinking about this long time now, but i think i made the right choice, I am going to leave lcpdfr.com. I've just been fed up with most of the situations on here, from lots of hate comments to 1 stars review for a typo, Firstly, I never told this anyone but the hate i get from people on normal dms is just too much, people just telling me to delete stuff cuz its too quiet, to a siren that did pretty good and they guy says it dosent contain a e.g. Hilo tone for a 1 star review. So you might ask where im going to go, Im not sure yet.... but i might make my own discord server or go to a different page like gta-mod-center or gta5-mods, I will (if im not going to be too lazy) a update to this of where im going to go, Soooo.... Goodbye everyone, Hopefully The haters will not follow me, Also I am going to leave my mods untouched here so they will still be able to be downloaded, i might comeback i might not, it just depends to the community now. for the last time now, Bye to everyone that supported me.

    I think the issue here that a lot of you are missing is that things are done wrong. I post  a file was it inciting a reaction? Not really but it was hidden and I was warned in the same day it was posted, ok I can see why that was done but when something is clearly stolen and posted with out the permission of the original author nothing is done for days. If you mention it in the comments you get warned and even yelled at about bring it up. Even if you have Already reported it. In an instance where something may be stolen, it should be hidden immediately till an investigation is done then take the appropriate action. Leaving it up allows it to be downloaded hundreds of times, by then it’s impossible to track. No one wants to spend hours on something just to have it stolen. Skins and liveries get ripped so much it isn’t even worth reporting because  nothing will be done. I understand that a site this large is hard to moderate but theft should be taken seriously and quickly. I really hope this can be resolved and we can get this community back to the greatness it once was. In the mean time see ya on discord, I’d post the link but it would be deleted like others have! Good luck on future endeavors.

    I appreciate you taking the time to write up a lengthy post like this and I think it's healthy for people to be able to express and share their concerns.  With that being said, it looks like some of your criticism is directed towards us as it relates to staff and development.  I'd be happy to provide a response to this if that's what you're looking for.  Otherwise, I can only hope that you'll understand it simply isn't possible for us to police every single thing that happens both on our website and especially on other communities and Discord servers.  In fact, doing so would likely just make things worse as our judgement isn't going to be 100% all of the time, and it's important to keep things as open as possible.
     
    I feel like the points you raise about some people being rude, disrespectful and overly dramatic are perfectly valid, but I strongly believe that this isn't something which is specific to LSPDFR, and can be seen throughout the entirety of the GTA community (especially in multiplayer communities), and indeed throughout the rest of the internet too (especially given the rise of Discord).  I understand if you feel like we should do more to counter this, perhaps through more aggressive moderation, but as I noted above I don't think this is the solution and I suppose you might also agree considering your concerns about the staff too.
     
    In any event, I don't want to hijack your topic, although I thought it important to convey those two points of my own.  If this is something that you'd like to discuss further then my message box is always open, or if you'd rather keep things public I'd be happy to respond here as well.  Otherwise, it's sad to see you go and I can only join the others who've posted here in wishing you the best and hoping that you'll come back one day.

    There was a person (im not gonna say the name) who uploaded a part in the Developer Section.He didnt knew who was the original author was and still released it.I told him in the comments how he could dare to do such a disrespect move to the author.That comment got deleted by a Admin.So i was frustated and commented with : Nice that my comment got deleted... I got warned to stop commenting on it.But i didnt.Some people will say its your fault but i cant take this disrespect to the real author so i posted a thumbs down.That was the reason why i got a warning point.Im not banned or something but i decided to hide my files from there.Some of you are moddeling on your own and you may got a feeling in what a bad state the Modding community is.There is a huge disrespect on the work of others.I understand that admins are also people and cant remove everything within a sec.But however i dont want to attack any admins.Only the person who uploaded it.But for doing that i put my stuff down.Some of you may think thats completly overreacted.Maybe it is.But i dont want to be a part of an Toxic community anymore.Stuff like this is the reason why people leave.I also did it to show that enough is enough.Respect others work.I know Im not god and cant change the world.But i dont want to take that.This site doesnt deserved this.Alot of people put so much love in creating this site.I want to thank them.Maybe we can get back to what this site should be.A place where we can do what we all love.Modding and playing this Video Game.Help each other if there are problems.I know that still happens.But there is more toxic stuff around than good.This is maybe a part of this community.But if so,i dont want to be a member of that.Most of us are all adults.Lets keep it like this.I dont want to say that i never was chlidish.But most people are.So,like i said you deserved a statement.There it is.I hope that something changes and i can Unhide my files again.Im Still gonna post some ingame pictures.If you want to get some more informations about stuff i do at the moment or also from others.Join my Discord.

    LSPDFR Community and Whomever it may Concern,
     
    I've been around this site for a hot minute. I like to think I generally know what I'm doing when it comes to skin designing, among other things that have to do with GTA modding. In my time here, I've released exactly 81 files in just over a year of membership. That's more than most members here. I'm not saying I'm better, more qualified, or more talented than anyone else here, but I will say I have worked very hard to bring this community quality work the entire time I've been here. As of November 7th, 2018, the entirety of my file library will no longer be available on LCPDFR.
     
    Why I'm no longer sharing my files here:
     
    Rude & disrespectful members: 
    Since starting this adventure about a year ago, I've met quite a few great people. Helpful people who give constructive feedback on my work. I've also come across people who have no regard for my intense effort to make high quality work. I've had people rip my designs, screenshots and abuse the LCPDFR review system because they didn't like my response to their rude comments, reviews, etc. For example, humans are not perfect, we all miss a few errors. If one of my screenshots has a bit too much saturation, I probably missed it, there's no need to leave a one star paragraph long essay on how much that one picture sucks. Then when I reply with something you don't like, you go and one star all of my other files, which is real mature. This is why we all can't get along, and it's annoying because if we could just learn to give constructive feedback, this wouldn't be an issue.
     
    Staff have treated members poorly:
    In the instance I heard about, a modeler I know of was treated unreasonably poorly by a member of the LCPDFR staff. I'm not here to stir more stuff up, but come on! I'm not getting into the specifics, because that's between the member and staff, but what I will say, being on the staff of a pretty large website, you should hold yourself to a higher standard. Don't curse people out because they let you know about something of concern on the site, instead, look at it in a professional manner - and deal with it in a professional manner. This isn't all of the staff, by the way. I have had many positive encounters with site staff, and they are great people!
     
    Lack of substantial new things:
    Yes, I understand that 0.4 is in development, near release and all. That being said, we've had the same general call-outs, scripts and such for a pretty extended amount of time. 0.3 brought many new and exiting things to this community when it was released in July 2016. Since then, we've seen the same tactics, maneuvers, and bugs over and over again. From the players' side, this should be understandable - as we all want new things to put in our game. From the developers' side, the prolonged wait is also understandable, adding many new things to the update that look like big mechanical changes. Adding ambient crimes, additional player/ped customization, menu options, etc. While this is all very cool, I personally don't think it takes 2 years to develop this. I've seen mods like "Stop The Ped" and "Interaction +" come out and be updated in a much shorter amount of time, and those plugins are considerably similar to the previewed content of the LSPDFR 0.4 release. I also understand the developers are making this in their own time, with little to no financial support. I know I'm not the only member who feels this way about the updates, or lack thereof.
     
    Stolen & misused content:
    I'm a pretty generous person. I don't charge you for me to design a skin going to a public release or to help develop something to better the community. But, when I'm generous enough to make you textures or something of the sort, I expect you to ask me before modifying the file I made you, I also expect credit for my work as well. I've had multiple occasions on this site where I make something for someone else, and they have either posted it without my permission, modified it without my permission, or sold it without my permission. Yeah, yeah - the site admin doesn't condone any form of financial transactions.... All I'm saying is, it's really not that hard to ask to do something with my work. Most of the time I'll let you post it, modify it, whatever, I just want to know you're doing so. But, when you don't credit me, and ignore my requests for credit for my own work - it makes me pretty angry.  
     
    Members are just ugly to each other:
    I've been involved in, seen and heard of so much "drama" within this community. Why? We all literally make stuff for a $60 video game. What happens is one person gets too confident about their work, then other people get upset with that person, and arguments arise. It happens in intervals, too. It's a different set of people every time. When this happens, people just leave because they get fed up with this crap. It's like a country's revolution. In this case, it keeps happening over and over again. I'm sure i'm not the first one to point these problems out, but seriously, we all need to see that we have a common goal, and drop all of the pre-existing grudges - AND WORK TOGETHER!
     
    Finishing, I'm really not going after anybody, I don't want to start any drama. I wrote this and cleared my files because I want to see some positive change here. We're all getting tired of this toxic crap, and quite frankly, I don't think I'll be the only one to leave because of this. I think we would all like to see an improvement in how we treat each other. I'll be honest, there have been a few instances where I was somewhat rude to other members, but from those instances, I learned that it's only counter-productive to act that way. This will 110% be mis-understood, but just to be safe and repeat myself for the third time - I'm not targeting any single person in this post, I'm making this post because I want people to realize we need a positive change here, and hopefully this will help make people realize that.
     
    Closing: Thank you to all the people who helped me get where I am today. I'm not going offline, I'm just leaving this site. I'll still be on Discord and such. Again, thanks to the following people for their support, kind words and such, it doesn't go unnoticed.

    I can't really speak for the moderation side of the site anymore, but when I was in the position willpv23 is in now, I always appreciated getting some concrete pointers about what is wrong with the site, who is doing these wrongdoings and what we can do to improve ourselves and the site. 
     
    Regarding the toxicity, I agree to some extent. Sadly, it's always been there and probably always will be there somehow. It seems to be this game that brings out the worse in some people. I've also been in this scene for a long time, and it's been better but we also have to remember: It's been worse. A lot worse. 
     
    Enjoy your time away, it's probably healthy 🙂
