Creator Policies   Development   Ghosthande | 4/2/2015  log in to like post  5

A list of policies for Creatures developers past and present, detailing the conditions of filesharing and/or rehosting their works.

This information comes from readme files and other documentation provided by the creators, but the policies listed below cannot be guaranteed to be true for all of that creator's works. Collaborative projects in particular are likely to be subject to different conditions.

If you are looking to rehost or otherwise redistribute a creator's work, you are encouraged to consult any documentation that may have come with it to ensure that you are looking at their most current and relevant policy.

Methods of redistribution fall into two categories. Filesharing is here defined as the act of sharing a work (such as an agent, breed or metaroom) with specific people, usually via email. Rehosting is the act of uploading a work to make it publically available on another web site.

Assuming that an author is open to having their work shared or rehosted, it is considered basic etiquette to ensure that any documentation (such as readme files) that were provided with the work remain packaged with it if at all possible. Proper credit should also be given to ensure that any recipients are aware of the work's origin.

FWIW, I'm not much of a creator yet, but my CritterBugSmell.cos that enables CA 19 as CritterBug smell can be freely shared and hosted by people. If I make anything else the same will apply. I make stuff to be used, after all.

I whipped this up recently in case I get into any projects in the near future (lol I should have had one before The Grendel Meso tbh). At least I've got one now!

Norngirl | 5/5/2018  log in to like post

Updated mine too now (on my page) ,it's pretty much similar to like Grendel Man's.

It is true,I do have to update my homepage,since I know some text files are missing clarification on my stuff in the packs.
I did at least update the Term of use on my page.

Hopefuly I might be able to update more stuff on my page...

Anyhow,just wanted to give a heads up!

I went and updated my own policy, as I crafted a proper one a while back.

People are free to rehost, redistribute and alter my work. Credit would be nice. As long as the original github or download files I host are still online, I would encourage everyone to use/link to those instead as I can keep those up to date. But if you want to include them in a pack as-is, be my guest.

I do not always create the graphics for my agents so make sure you're reusing my work and not that of the artist. For graphics that aren't mine you need the artist's permission. :)

My policy is: If I didn't want people sharing my cobs, I wouldn't upload them in the first place. I don't want my files to die 10 years from now, so please share and rehost to your heart's content! Just keep them in their original archives with readmes where applicable.

I'm surprised Wafaru's policy isn't here, as it's literally slapped in your face as soon as you visit her website. :P
C-Rex | 8/22/2015  log in to like post

My policy is to allow others to redistribute my content as long as credit is given. :)
ylukyun | 8/22/2015  log in to like post

I've updated the article. :)
Liam | 8/22/2015  log in to like post  3

Hey yo, my policy is and has always been that people are free to re-host and re-distribute my work (and even alter it!) as long as credit is provided.
