    Ok, I haven't received one of these emails, but the ip address of crazygamesalsad matches that of someone who sells templates themselves.

    How'd you match the IP addresses? Manually?

    ya the guy just emailed me and tried to tell me he was in the lobby of his building and saw a guy using gamesalad so it must be him and he talked to the guy and the guy says he wont do it again.

    He said thats why the guy had the same ip address as him.

    What a joke. Like I would believe this story.

    Anyways im very close to telling everyone the user name. im so mad.

    Hah, nice excuse...

    What?? Im disgusted! I havent received an email and that excuse!!!!!! That makes it soooo much worse! I say name them!
  • steve86steve86 Posts: 806Member
    name the guy, that kind of behavior is inexplicable. If he is pulling stuff like this I certainly don't want to loose my time with him if he ever tries to post a question in the forum.

    Lets start placing our bets on who it is.....

    JK JK

    that won't end well. but seriously, tell us. So we can avoid him. What right does he have as of now to be hidden? especially after this.

    I'm a time traveller ;)

    The fact who I thought it was has emailed tshirt trying to explain the ip's matching kinda proves it was him :D

    A lot of us help a lot of people out on here and I don't think this person deserves help and I for one don't want to help them.

    I have an idea of who this could be, but I haven't received any emails from him. The suspense is killing us TSB, just tell everyone who it is!!!

    What upsets me, almost as much as the template pirating, was that that was the best excuse he could come up with. It wasn't even on the spot. He had a chance to think about what to say before he sent the email and STILL made up a halfassed excuse. Whoever you are, please continue to not send me emails (though I do feel somewhat left out).

    Ps. I don't really feel left out.

    I did not get an email from him but I did get a PM from him back in March:

    crazygamesalad - March 13
    Hello, I just noticed that you bought The hidden object game from darren Is there anyway you can send me the template? I have no money but i can always help you with xcode, or gamesalad game, or photoshop/graphics please let me know thanks

    sdsmith64 to crazygamesalad - March 16
    nope...sorry. You need to buy it from Darren and help support Independent creators...

    crazygamesalad - March 16
    ok thanks for your reply appreciate it :(
  • mynameisacemynameisace Hull, UKPosts: 2,484Member
    @sdsmith64 - You just reminded me... I got these too and forwarded them to Darren:

    crazygamesalad - March 16
    Thanks for ur response Appreciate it :)

    mynameisace to crazygamesalad - March 16
    Darren and Wayne work really hard with their software trying to make GameSalad a better experience for us, they are indie developers and need to put food on the table, I think you can spare a tenner for some software that you do anything for.

    crazygamesalad - March 16
    is there anyway you can send me the attribute tool? in return for something, Anything! Please

    mynameisace to crazygamesalad - March 15
    Hey there, I bought all the tools from Darren & Wayne, yeah. How come? Ace

    crazygamesalad - March 14
    hey ace just wondering have you bought any templates and or tools?

    This guy really needs to be shamed! Months of doing it is just WRONG! Especially if they are making templates too and profiting from snippets of code from other people's work.

    I haven't received any emails like this (according to poll results, only half of us have) - I would never welcome them if I did.

    Just a thought: Does this person know who has bought templates and who hasn't, and is therefore specifically targeting template buyers? If so, how can they tell who has bought templates?

    A further thought: Is this just an attempt to get templates for free (loathsome in itself) or is there a more sophisticated scam going on?

    @template_stealer (whatever your name is, but I am sure you are reading this thread): I hope you are just a naive person who didn't realise what you were doing was wrong and made a mistake but have now learned your lesson (I like to think the best of people). If not, then don't ever, ever contact me about anything. Ever. Period.
  • mynameisacemynameisace Hull, UKPosts: 2,484Member
    He probably saw posts of people talking about templates and tools, the day before I received my PMs I had posted about the tools, so must have known that way?

    he might be sending to every email address he sees in the marketplace. This is the mail i got from him:
    Wanna Trade Gamesalad Templates?

    From:
    La la la La <[email protected]>
    Add to Contacts
    To: [email protected]
    hi i have seen you on the forums and have seen you around the marketplace frequently.

    The reason i am email you is because i am a student and i thought this can save u and i money . So i am looking to trade templates i have,

    Tshirtbooths templates/Darren templates/And a bunch of other templates! Over $300 worth of templates and gamesalad tools.

    If your interested in trading, then email me back and ill send you a list of what i have.

    i think i can ban people using their username or IP, but i really think it should be done by the GS staff. They've always been excellent about responding to abuse of the community, but since it's the weekend they are probably at home relaxing.

    I have no doubt they will be dealt with.

    Off-topic slightly but I just realised... Calvin made a valid topic! Whoohoo!

    Wow I got this email two days ago and sent to TSB and Darren but man I didn't expect everyone had gotten one too. Geez does this tard not realize most of us are not gonna rip others off and instead expose him.

    I pulled the IP from the email I got if you want it Jon.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    Naive? No. This guy has made mistake after mistake after mistake.

    So, stupid? Maybe.

    Naive? No.
