    I'll keep that in mind when I actually start coding for cataclysm. All rights reserved right? I don't care so much about my code either, i'd like it out there but I just wouldn't want it direct-copied for no apparent reason.

    Thanks again Phanx

    Okay, thanks Phanx for clearing this up, I've read that GPL license and man it can be confusing :)

    So the GPL only covers the curse page then >.<

    Alright, alright. I'll just contact the author about it :) Thanks

    Yes, but don't they still have to include proper credits?

    Sure, I am not going fight about your legal definition of what is an addon or not, but it does add something, or moreless, deAdds something, I just want proper credits, that is all, I sent him a PM.

    Thanks,

    Otopic I love your addons Phanx!

    I will also expand my knowledge into coding soon for cataclysm.

    Honestly, I wouldn't say he copied your "addon". Neither of you guys have written a single byte of code, just zipped up some empty sound files. Both of your projects are intended to "remove" some extremely common game sounds. Between that and the fact that the Curse.com search is 99.999999% useless, it seems likely that he just had the same idea as you ("hey, these sounds I keep hearing are obnoxious"), didn't know your project existed, and came up with the same solution (which happens to be the only available solution). Have you tried talking to him directly?


    If this was true, why does his current version say ErrorSoundsBegone as my title of my addon is Error Sounds be Gone.. I will contact him to at least put my name as an additional author,

    single byte of code or not, it still an addon

    Okay, its a bit different structure than a typical addon, therefore curse client wouldn't work with it.

    EDIT: Uploaded, I put it inside a folder called ESBG

    Uh, this doesn't make sense. It is. It's probably due to the fact it is an addon outside the addon folder. I just edited the txt file and that was it, so my old file was the exact same file structure. I deleted my own file a few days ago for the update. I did not receive any email/PM
