The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I think I might be guilty of downloading mods from sites like those. I have changed my habits and have been downloading mods from official mod websites like curseforge.com and avoiding those kinds of websites. Many mod authors host their mods on curseforge.com!
that's exactly what I did to avoid those sites. If I search for a mod and the search engine (usually duck duck go) gives me a link anywhere besides Minecraftforum.net or CurseForge, I am immediately skeptical, check out the link, and if it's one of these sites, I report the listing to the search engine provider. Since this is usually duck duck go, and they are allegedly very receptive to feedback, I then get a nice warm feeling knowing I've done my good deed for the day :P. Just do your part, and call out anyone that isn't doing theirs.
On an entirely separate matter, does anyone else get a 404 when they try to visit stopmodreposts.org? It seems like the site is only up half the time, so I am beginning to wonder if there's some corporate espionage going on here. or maybe it's just something simple like the site is hosted from home and the computer turns off?
it's not funny to lie about someones mod they lied about mine
This is auto-generated information by a mod that is all about analysis. That it shows an outdated version merely means that your mod is not popular enough to have been spotted by OpenEye yet.
Also, they don't provide a download for anything, so... what is the problem here?
Everyone knows that you shouldn't trust MinecraftSix. It's like the number one site everyone learns to avoid.
However they do not re-host the downloads of mod files and as such are not a general concern of the StopModReposts movement.
The most annoying part for me personally, is that users of my mods may not be able to reach out to me. I can't respond to their comments. The may not be able to have the latest content, and the forum page might not be updated.
It's also annoying that I can't see the total download count...
Yesterday I found this thread and I didn't know that all that sites are illegal.
I'm using one which I will now mention here, because it seems this is also not OK :), and for me it was fine for years.
So my question is,
1. what are then legal sites for downloading mods, skins, resource pack, command blocks? (can someone post it here)
2. what makes minecraft dedicated webpage legal?
3. why this sites still exists if there are illegal?
4. is website legal if someone download mod, resource pack, skin or anything from official source, make article about it, own screenshots put all on website and link to the official source as download
1. The websites that the original creator hosts them on. Typically, this is CurseForge, but there are some exceptions.
2. Minecraft has no dedicated mod webpage.
3. Because it's not illegal. It's just being utterly awful and unfair.
4. As long as they link to the official source for the download, the StopModReposts project typically doesn't have a problem with it.
