well....nice to see turbosquid doing a good job.......not lol
The support ticket I submitted about the model has been read, but not replied to.... the forum thread that I was using to call-out the theif and prove him for what he is... has been deleted....
and of course... the model has not been removed from his account.....
Greenvampire : I want to thank you for keeping me informed and submitting that ticket. It wasnt your model but you treated this situation like it was your own. However.. I'm sure you feel the same way... I dont think that willl be the end of this hehe. Anyhow
no problem IceKid,
I hate people that would steal models.... and I hate people with alter-egos that are up to no good.....
a while back, a friend (well... not a friend anymore) hacked one of my email accounts that I rarely used, and pretended to be me for about a year.... it is only now that I am starting to find the damage he did me... which included stolen models..... hence why I am so active with stuff like this.... Im not only trying to call-out thiefs, but actively trying to do damagecontrol on my old username lol
The only way I found out about him was because he tried to submit work to my teachers, and started to bad mouth my friends lol
anyways, Im glad to help and will keep an eye out, in the meantime, if anybody knows the guys over at GOURANGA! - A Grand Theft Auto News & Resource Site I would greatly appreciate an email address
(just thought I would ask since I just went on about all that lol)
just a small quick update,
C.D. has now been fully banned.... not aloud to post anymore etc....
however his alter-ego "agent 326" is still posting.... I can imagine this thread will probably get quite fun: Turbo Squid -- Forum Posts
you only need a standard TS account to access that one too ... so anyone that has a TS account (even non selling) feel free to come over and offer your opinion lol
yup, it appears that C.D. is back as "Master Diamond", I have sent a support ticket to TS, it has been read, so Im not sure if he has been banned again or wether he just aint posting.... probably the last one.
"Agent 326" is also CD, and "Razorfin" although I think thats the account that he changed to master diamond.
I can imagine this is goin to take a while to cure.
I sent a support ticket about the overal situation on the influx of thiefs, and this is the response I got:
"Thank you for this information.
There was an issue with our 'ban user' in the forum section for a while.
While I cannot discuss individual accounts with you, please know that we take this seriously and are putting automated systems in place to prevent as much of this as we can, but we also need original owners of material to continue to be vigilent in assiting us against theft.
Hi everyone, heres an update about TS that you will all be pleased about I should imagine.
I contacted them the other week about "what is good enough evidence for us to supply to have stolen content removed"
after a while, I finally recieved this reply:
"If we can get wire frames from the original models to compare with the ones posted on our site, I have been given permission to remove the material. We just need proof that the items are not original to the artist who has them posted and we can take action.
Its about time that TS reviewed its policy on theft, and now that they have, I urge anyone who is still affected by the thiefs on TS to get back intouch, as you may have more joy.
On a side note, TS has been cleaning the forums of all threads started by Agent 326 + Master Diamond (Both C.D.'s alter-egos)
I am uncertain wether they are banned from posting, or if the threads have just been deleted.... only time will tell on that one.
Well thats good to know, and good to report to. I'd like to think it was the discussion in this thread that helped in making them repremend their ways.. but I guess we'll never know that one. Thanks again for the update.
On a side note. I read some more quotes a week ago. And cd/Agent skipped up on keeping his alter ego's in order. Because he said something along the lines of " Please guys, help me get my account unbannd at 3dstudio, please convince Mat that I'm not him" lol well my friend venom was the one who reported the stolen models on 3dstudio.. but the name wasnt Agent, it was C.D. so he really screwed that one up lol.
I think your right.. however he seems to have grown some brains since his expulsion from Turbosquid and 3dmax site (sorry forgot there name) Anyhow he only shows the Vector and not the other 4 cars.. though as we know CD/his other alterego's had a strange affinity for Vectors. I'm sure the Gallardo and M3 are from NFS:MW.
