    I totally agree if sharing were going on, but he was merely showing and did not provide a file to "his" modified version of the skin. I think a link was an adequate method of showing the origin and giving credit to the creator.

    You and a couple others feel the link to the original skin was inadequate method of giving credit. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. It's all pretty silly as I don't believe it was the OP's intention to not give credit to the creators or make it seem like it was all his. I pretty much did the same thing as the OP and I actually made my modified version available; BAV weather and Streets & Trips skins
    It certainly wasn’t my intention with my modified skin thread to claim credit for the skins. Hell, I thought I was helping out for those who wanted these skins to match their main BAV skin. It’s not hard to go from BMV to BAV, but some what annoying and I figure this way the creators wouldn’t be pestered to do it, my contribution for all the great work they’ve done.

    I converted 3 BMV style skins to BAV and I linked to the thread of the 'Streets&Trips' skin and thanked Chuck for the 'skipto' skin. I neglected to thank Guino for providing the weather skin so on that one I am guilty of not giving credit to the creator.

    Oh and just food for thought, I was trying to customize the Alpine Skin for my brother’s Car PC and it was real annoying changing the buttons with just the .jpgs files. The skin creator didn't want to release his PSDs and that is his prerogative. I talked to my brother and we dumped it from the skin choices. Does the Alpine creator care? Probably not........but it’s one less person using the skin. Shame to as it’s a really nice skin, but needed a couple more buttons added for his needs.

If I drive an Audi and I asked for a copy of the modified skin would you be angry at me too?

    I'm not really clear on the issue here? Are you upset he modified the skin for his personal use or that you think this thread makes it seem as though he is taking credit as the creator of the original skin? You made it and ultimately it's yours to do with as you see fit, but I thought releasing .psds was done so others can modify the files to suit their individual needs. He modified the skin and was proud of his efforts so he posted pictures of the end result.

    The only thing I could see the confusion of was the title of his thread. Perhaps if he had titled it "look at my Audi skin edit"? Of course clicking on the link to the original skin thread makes it quite clear who the creator of the skin is, eclipse designs<-wtf?. If this is some sort of business venture you need to copyright the artwork and not release PSDs.
    I understand where your comming from. the only problem is that the psd's were never released. The only psd's released were the ones for the menu skin and like drewdizzy said, there is a request to ask permission before modifying or posting modified images of our work. There would not be any issue if this guy had asked for the psd's and modified them for himself.

    And eclips design is drewdizzy's company that does graphic and web design. we are not in business for creating rr skins, just giving credit where credit is due.

    Guys, you're just childish!

    Anyway, JT do u think your skin looks good enough to ask for modding it? If you don't like that others mod your skin than you're definetly on the wrong place here... You should leave the forum and make your own crap of skins if u don't like sharing....

    I never asked Guino if I can mod his Roadrunner Binarys for my own use... Think about that or just shut the f..k up!

    You said any modification or re-design consult me or jt

    you released the files and he modded them for himself he doesn't have to ask u if he can mod them for himself.

    He didn't say anything in his post he pointed to a thread that people who would of clicked the link and found out who designed it.

    I do understand where ur coming from i have had my work stolen aswell

    I'm not trying to be an *** i swear

    But he hasn't done anything wrong at all if he was gonna sell it or have it for download or said he made it then id agree but he only showed what he did and made sure u got credit for the work.

    Again not trying to be an *** but he really didn't do anything wrong and you can't tell someone they can't mod a skin for themselfs if that were true then god help us all.
