Something that’s pissing me off recently

content thieves who are SL Mentors! seriously.. WHAT THE FUCK??!?

recently there was a post on shopping cart disco about someone stealing celestial studio skins. that thief’s profile stated that they were a mentor and yes they were in the official SL Mentor group! just the other day someone on my plurk feed mentioned someone had attempted to clone something of theirs but the script had alerted them that it was being cloned, that person doing the cloning was ALSO an SL mentor..

so what the hell is going on? why are thieves being made into mentors??? is this why theft is so rampant in sl these days? thieves teaching other thieves how to skirt the system… it’s so… depressing… pathetic really.

it’s taken me 2 years of hard work to get to the level i’m at now. i’m not a great designer, and my stuff definitely isn’t top quality, but at least i can say i made it myself.. without being a thief. at least i put some effort into it and didn’t just rip off someone else’s prims.

there. that’s my ranting for the day… it’s just really pissing me off to see people who are supposed to be teaching new sl residents being thieves and taking money away from people who actually do work in sl.

    You know, if SL Mentors are stealing content, they need to be reported.

    Seriously.

  2. i totally agree with you.. do you know by chance where i can report these people? do i just AR them or is there someone i can speak to regarding mentors?

  3. A script that reports copying? Only objects then? =)

  4. yes the person doing the cloning was attempting to clone hair, and the hair alerted the creator of said hair that it was being cloned, not a very smart content thief 😉

    I agree with you. Hope you reported these people! btw. LL stopped accepting mentor’s applications until they redo their program rules and stuff. Hopefully it will be harder for those jerk to get in those programs and look all angel like and official.

  6. OMG I want that “anti-copy-alert” script thingy!!!

  7. ganny that alert was coded into the copy bot script.. so when someone used the copy bot it alerted the original creator of the item

  8. A little on the old side, but you might be interested in this:

  9. […] care about where their products are coming from, as long as the price is cheap. Especially with recent cases when Second Life mentors have been found to using […]

  10. AR them, of course. Then go to Blue or Mia Linden (good luck with office hours).
