Moving the copyright message that some add-ons have

    (I won't actually touch anything related to these messages unless it's confirmed that I can.)

    For example, XenAtendo displays the following message directly beneath itself:
    Would it be appropriate to move such messages down to the global footer, like so?
    Or should I leave them in place?

    My main reason for wanting to do this is organization. One benefit is that it gets displayed 100% of the time. One downside is that it's more out of the way.

    It's been discussed at length before, with heated arguements both ways.

    In short, ask the individual author first, and get their consent.

    OK then, thanks. Also, if you think this thread might devolve into a flame war you can lock it (or delete it altogether).

    I don't mind an author getting credit where credit is due. I can respect that.

    But if the author places it in order to be detracting and "seemingly" forcing the idea of purchasing branding removal... It's getting relocated into the footer. They cry foul all they want.

    Should note that I only do such in extreme cases... ie... I forgot what the add-on was, but it ended up putting their copyright in everyone's signature. Few edits and into the footer.

    The author ended up deleting the add-on in the long run anyways. And we decided we didn't need it and so it got uninstalled.

    Even in situations such as these, its still the proper thing to do to contact the author before moving it.
