This is nothing serious, for real. I was on Google to see if I'm on the results, and I found out that someone re-released my Tamagawa Minami High School stage in MUGEN 1.1's format in MUGEN Archive.

Now first of all, I appreciate you guys featuring my stages in a YouTube video or just downloading them and liking them. It really makes me feel great. But editing my stages to match a certain format? Such as MUGEN 1.1's format? That's a different matter.

Just to keep things short and sweet, if you're going to edit my stage to match MUGEN 1.1's format, ask me permission first. I don't care how you ask, via email, or PM-ing me in the forums, just ask me permission before you touch anything.

It's not like they took the stage and passed it off as their own creation.

...right?

Y'know what? I'm not really sure. I originally thought that they did something wrong by just taking a stage I made, and modify it here and there. I guess they kinda credited me by the looks of it.

I guess that's another thing, as long as they credit me, they're fine.

I know how you feel, but the thing is...

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND that any time you make something publically available on the Internet there is a possibility that people might take parts of it, or the entire thing, and claim it as their own or do other things you might not agree with.

We strongly believe the damage caused by this is extremely negligible in case of a non-profit hobby like MUGEN, and that if you are uncomfortable with this unchangable fact of the Internet then you are probably best off keeping your releases away from public exposure altogether.

If you do choose to "go private," please understand that it would have to be you who decides whom and how to give access to your release, and that it would be up to you to try and make sure it stays "private," and not us.

I have seen many and many times characters that were a simple sprite/palette swap of another character, without any credit to the original author. It happens, unfortunately.

My least favorite part about mugen...

No matter how much work you put into something, there will always be a lack of respect in this community. Common courtesy apparently doesn't exist anymore.

If it's something really important to you there's nothing wrong with keeping it private in your circle of friends. I hope anyone who does make private creations will at least tease us with videos though! :P

Once it's on the internet there's no real policing it.

Y'know what? I'm at a loss for words other than true.
