Any non-official administrator forum will have users that use pirated software as members, more often than not asking for support. Case in point, I pointed out a designer on XenFans who was using a nulled XenForo, and never saw anything done about it on your end.Personally I ban those users from my site that have no respect for those who paid for the software.
It's a pure insult after paying for a site, to offer a service to others to use your site. To come and ask for help with a nulled instance. I don't know why you'd support that by allowing the post. It's a signal that you're ok with nulled XenForo and only provokes others to either continue the conversation or discuss piracy on the web site.
Yes, indirectly it has to do with you.
Lynching someone who pirates, or has pirated in the past makes this community look bad. Someone who does pirate asked for help on his forum, he told them to ask on the official site, and then he admits he uses nulls. Did he give them help? Did he respond to the positively in support of them pirating? If not, it is no different than things on many other sites. Pirates obviously go looking for support at unofficial forums. As I stated, you had some at XenFans that were releasing/showing off designs (One of which who rips designs and brags about it).When you reported someone on XenFans for nulled XenForo I talked to the person, our team, and to Kier directly. But whatever.
So you are saying that on his site users can talk about piracy, but on this site is makes the community look bad? What's the difference per web site? How does it not make his web site look bad? A nonsense argument.
I am not stoning him, he said he has it behind him, which is good. All I did was request him to perhaps not let users abuse his site. He commented back, I explained my motivation.
I didn't think he needed his dad to have a conversation with us.
It was him who started the thread about people abusing resources, so he's opening himself up for comments.
And someone pointed out his history.
He told the person to get support at XenForo, and then they admitted they were using nulled software; did he provide support? Did he help the user at all? If not, he's done nothing wrong, and is no different than any other site where a pirate asks for help, including XenFans.
Completely agree.Matthew2D is a licensed XenForo customer and has made a valid suggestion. Keep this discussion focused on his suggestion. Personally, I agree with him. Members that do not have their forum accounts associated with a valid license can not download add-ons or styles, that limitation should be extended to template mods as well.
