Opening the file in a package editor would reveal it straight away. I would also assume that some TSRW information would be left behind in the final .sims3pack.

It still leaves the impression of rather distasteful pro-active snooping, if FAs are having to download sample items from websites, open them in some tool, and examine their watermarks.  Like, is it really necessary?   I'm sitting here with an expression on my face like a cat who has just smelt a funny smell.  You know the one.

I mean, do these FAs not have something more fun and interesting to do than volunteer for this activity?   I did precis the chat extract as posted above, but one of the surrounding remarks gave me the impression it was not necessarily Thomas's idea in the first place.  Immediately after that first line above, the following was said:
[17:20] <Inge> You been sending out emails on behalf of TSR?
[17:20] <Murano> On behalf of the FA Panel, asking Thomas first

A few lines later I said
[17:23] <Inge> I will gather a few creators who have used s3oc and get them to send emails to people who shared stuff made with it Smiley
(which illustrates how bizarre I was finding the idea)

Does joining TSR turn creators like this?  I knew Murano (slightly) before, and I am sure he wasn't like this!

From what I can tell, the FA circle operates much like a cult, so yeah.

I think this protectionism is an unfortunate side effect of the split in the community.

That would make sense if they were protecting there own work; but why they are protecting yours..? I don't go around emailing people because they failed to give Peter & Inge credit for there tools (which I use), so why do do they email people for not giving credit for the tools they use?

Anyone have any of these e-mails sent to creators who have not given TSR credit for use of their tool? Would love to see what these e-mails say. Also anyone know the ratio of the sites that have been hacked that have also used the TSR tool but have not given credit to TSR?

Here's what's really unfortunate -  After touting that you were creating a tool that would be free for anybody to use, your site is now emailing people naive enough to believe you and requesting (or is it insisting?) that they provide a link back to TSR. In other words, you want payback.

Which means "the tool" isn't really all that free to use.

Not even that, really. It's that they DIDN'T previously ask this, and now are trying to RETROACTIVELY CHANGE THE RULES on people who previously had agreed to different rules!

Did you ever really think that it wouldn't have strings attached?

Seriously! That's just fucked up. There is actually an FA panel policing the internet? Honestly? There's actually grown men and women having meetings to discuss these types of things?

I wonder sometimes if anyone else sees a frightening similarity between the way TSR and Scientology operate.
