    Generally speaking paid or unpaid if your speaking from a position of power or assumed power derived from a company or group it is no longer your personal opinion but the opinion of that company or group. I work directly with Medic4523, We constantly explain to our staff members that handle everything from moderation to support cases that they speak with our voice because we put them in those positions to assist people so they need to be aware of what they are saying and how as it reflects on Medic's name/brand.

    So basically over the weekend a group of developers decided to make a more secure website to host their models. Someone noticed the models were no longer on here and asked a question. A community Moderator replied calling all the developers doing this drama queens and they would come crawling back eventually. Obviously said group did not take the blatant disrespect kindly. Once said moderator realized he messed up he started deleting and locking the threads. That prompted even more backlash as not only were they disrespected but they were also being censored. Right now some of us are discussing options for moving forward with the staff here. Its likely if you want to get your vehicles from one website and your LSPDFR and scripts from another. 

    So using your great example. I want money I should be able to take your money with 0 repercussions because you cant stop me. Also no one should want a way to report me for taking said money because its not like its going to stop me?

    No one is expecting miracles and we know even with the increased security we are setting up its not going to be 100% prevention. We are making it as difficult as possible for them. What most of us want is an open dialogue with the staff to work out realistic prevention/punishment/reporting. A shoulder shrug and, "welp until they post it here its not our problem." Is the same as saying feel free to rip and steal whatever you want. As long as you dont come in and shit in my house I dont care.

    Here is the problem as I see it. A member of your staff instead of taking a calm professional approach to the situation and saying something along the lines of Authors may remove their content at any time and then locking the thread decided to take shots at us. Again our intentions were never to do this until he basically called us whiny drama queens who will come crawling back. As it stands with how your site works its not feasible to protect assets anymore. We are moving those assets somewhere we can control and protect them. The goal was to do so peacefully as most of us do enjoy LSPDFR. After Erza's comments that we take as a direct representation of LSPDFR's position it greatly offended us. 

    You guys do not want to invest the time or effort into protecting moddlers assets. That is fine. We can work with someone who will. The blatant disrespect then attempts to straight censor us though is unacceptable.

    The cool real looking models you see in GTA5 have to come from somewhere. Either you have people who rip work from another game or your paying someone to take something like a CAD drawing and creating the 3d Model for you to use. This first part can run anywhere from $100-500 on average. Once you have said model it generally needs to be converted to actually work in GTA 5. It also generally needs to be poly crunched so the game engine doesnt die when they spawn in. Then you need to template/put on lights/touch up the models. After all this work is done to the tune of sometimes hundreds of man hours worth of work you get something that looks like this. So yes even though the end product was released in a locked state for everyone to enjoy someone actively stealing it so they can do whatever they want with it is not ideal as its your blood/sweat/tears.

    @Sam @Cyan
     
    Thank you for taking the time to join us this afternoon. My intentions were not to create a spectacle, but your team crossed a line. When your "customers" have an important message to share, it seems best to at least hear the concern and have a constructive conversation. That's the attitude I came into today with, but the name calling and general apathetic, poor demeanor certainly escalated things. I understand you are addressing that issue; thank you. 
     
    You can understand why people would be upset. You can understand why content creators would want some form of protection. I understand you are not the internet police, and some actions taken regardless may have little to no impact on the end result. However, the "we can't do anything" and "we won't do anything" hurt... because it was perceived as not even caring enough to try. That's all most of us wanted; some sort of effort. A message denouncing behavior. Something. Anything to show you were willing to try to help us out. But we couldn't even seem to get someone to listen, until everything burned out of control today. Why did it have to come to that point?
     
    You guys made a great point today that will help a lot of developers decide what is best for them going forward: LSPDFR is a public website, and anyone can download anything they want, without restriction, and your decision is to remain that way. And like Turtle said, because of that, the people that have left or will be leaving, won't be coming back.
     
    If either of you would like to continue a conversation in DMs, you know where to find me.

    As I said previous post. 

    Hi I'm Jedahdiah, and I'm a dramatic developer and I'd like to join this dramatic developer anonymous group.
     
    Interesting though that the staff on the site want to keep closing topics that are saying the site doesn't support modders.
     
    First, staff called us stupid and dramatic, and now they think censoring us by closing topics is a good idiots to silence us?
     
    An excellent tactic. If only the French thought of that in the war.

    I actually like the first one. The second 2 are pretty meh. Thing is I would rather departments be different and have some form of self identity then plan ass black and white, all black or all white.

    Police cars should be eye catching their job is to be visible. Presence patrols mean absolutely nothing if people don't see or notice you which is the first part of proactive policing. Ghost cars are great for the second part. Catching the people watching for the visible cars only. Without the first the second isn't going to be nearly as effective. 

    The second part of this is the reason most cars are going the route of the FHP cruiser is to increase visibility from nearly all angles. Its why everything is reflective. Its also why all Ambulance and Fire Trucks have to put those ugly ass chevrons on all their new equipment. Visibility ideally increases surviving the roads.

    Now with all that said the Chicago Pattern is just as ugly as the previous one. The only reason to have the Unit Number so plainly visible is for the increase in recordings. Its   CYA for the department to crucify their guys if they fuck up.

    Most of the answers here are correct. Not only did it leave evidence that yes the officer interacted with your car incase you ran it also helped to ensure the trunk was closed. You will still see officers touch somewhere on the vehicle now. Most of the time though its closer to whatever door/window they are going to interact through. 

    Prime example if you killed the cop and got away and 2 days later you get pulled over again and they arrest you as a suspect. When they test your car for evidence and find said deceased officers fingerprints on your car your going to jail for a long time.

    Basically. Like I said legally the C& D letter is more of a request at this point because it wouldn't stand up in court. No one wants to deal with it though. So they pull the content and show that its gone to appease the  person who sent it. The only way a C&D letter would hold up is if they could prove they were losing money or you were making money. Blizzard can cry about a private server that people play on because its subscriptions they lose. 

    The biggest issue is its not worth hiring a lawyer and telling them to pound sand. That and considering the majority around here seem to either be L&O of some form or pro- L&O so generally we do not want to make a department look bad. Even if they are being fucktards in this case.
