No one contacted me and to assume i'd be too bothered(??) is just..
If you cant possibly understand why i'd be a little upset that a guide i spent a good chunk of hours on got pasta'd, doctored slightly and reposted as someone elses then sorry youve lost the plot. not a polite way to say that.
If for some reason yall still dont get that, when i did edit other ppls guides(veterancy for example) i made sure to credit myself for fixing it up because I get that its hard work to edit something thats old as dirt, never said i was unhappy with it being updated
but I also made DAMN sure to not take away THEIR credits because it was their guide to begin WITH. When did yall forget thats kind of a serious thing?
Do you not understand the meaning of the words "may" and "perhaps"? You are assuming what I suggested may be the case, was the case. Despite, in the very same paragraph, I tell you I haven't talked to Planet Smasher about this. For all I know, the thought of contacting you may not have struck his mind. It has been a while since you were on staff.
That does not excuse your behaviour. Think about it for a while, Cookiez. Put your emotions away for a moment if you can. I understand that you are upset. You put a good chunk of your time in for the original guide. But why then, is it that you seem unable to understand that the current staff did the same?
We haven't extensively edited the old guide, Cookiez. We made a Mark 2.0 version. The old one still has its credits intact. You seem to see these two as the same guide. In my mind they are seperate.
The people who worked on the Mark 2.0 version were given credit. Some of the old content were copy pasted, as you may have noticed in the FAQ section, but that does not equal work for this one. This too is a seperation.
That is the policy I am going with. Had we hidden the old one, then thanks would be given in this one. But we haven't done that. The old one is still visible. It is, as I said, linked to at the bottom.
This is why I find your arguments about stealing credits hollow.
Again, I understand that you are upset. You see the Mark 2.0 version as a copy paste of your work and you feel entitled to have credit. That you have. The work you did can still be seen. We have made no claims to take that from you.
