    Mith, we really need a config option to turn off Earth Guardian destroying blocks, it's getting really bad on the server I'm on. Please do consider it and don't brush it off as design choice, this poor town I'm trying to help out is really getting griefed to oblivion.

    I'd sure hate for there to be another snapshot solely for rewrites and bugfixes..

    That sounds like a great snapshot to me personally. I'd much rather Mojang fix bugs rather than add more broken features. This is coming from a mod user's point of view though.

    I think a lot of modders are throwing a fit. If you release your mod, why do you all of a sudden have to tell us how to use it? It doesn't make sense that you would make a mod for people to play and then say only these people can play it. There is nothing new here, anyone who was gonna use the mod anyways without permissions are still there, and anyone who was gonna rage at shutdown code is still gonna be there. If modders, who work OPTIONALLY, leave over nothing changing, then they can go ahead and do so.

    Good grief, what is going on here?! Most all of us are not against asking to use your mod! BUT GET THIS! Alot of times, even when we ask, we get the flipping middle finger!
    "As a habit I ignore every PM in regards to mod-packs - both private and public. Everything you need to know about them is listed below. I don't ignore them to be an ass, but I get at least 10 mod-pack requests per day and I honeslty can't be bothered to reply to them all.

    Public Mod Packs:
    All mod packs I want to include Thaumcraft already have my permission. Only people I am personally acquainted with have any chance of me giving permission for their mod pack."
    Or how bout Optifine?
    "The mod OptiFine is Copyright © 2013 by sp614x and the intellectual property of the author. It may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use as long as it remains in its unaltered, unedited form. It may not be placed on any web site or otherwise distributed publicly without advance written permission. Use of this mod on any other website or as a part of any public display is strictly prohibited and a violation of copyright."
    How bout Mo'Creatures?
    "This mod can not be distributed in any other way than through this thread. You don't have the permission to distribute this mod through 'mod packages', installers or pluggins. A multiplayer pluggin is allowed as long as it requires you to download the unmodified single player mod to work. An installer can not host this mod, it must redirect the user to this thread. You can't modify or redistribute my mod without my written permission. Copyright © 2011 DrZhark."
    These guys won't even let you ask, with a please! It's NO! NO NO NO NO NO! YOU ARE AN EVIL AND BAD PERSON!

    Do you see the problem here? I do, not sure about you guys.

    I picked the less nonsensical choice, but don't misunderstand me. I think the poll on this topic was created from a misinformed viewpoint, so the poll itself is sort of invalid, regardless of the results. It's not that modders should or should not copyright content, it's that they cannot do so.

    I'm going to be honest with you guys here, I am not a lawyer, and I don't want to delve too deeply into arguing which parts of which viewpoints expressed in the previous posts are correct or incorrect. I can tell you that the EULA is fairly clear about most of this, and I'm awaiting further clarification on the "malicious code" bits.

    What I can say though, is what the spirit of the EULA is supposed to be: don't be a jerk, and we won't either. Mojang likes modding because it's good for the community. We don't allow people to sell mods. If you're going to make a mod, know that people will probably use it in ways that you didn't necessarily anticipate or intend for. Once you release a mod, it's out there, and all you can do is update that mod with some measure of consistency, and know that most people who enjoy the mod will go to you for the download/info/etc.

    You shouldn't put malicious code in your mod that shuts down the game, or somehow infringes upon someone else enjoying the game. If you're butthurt about your mod, that you released to the public, being included in a mod pack, you may be in this for the wrong reasons. That being said, people who release modpacks also shouldn't be jerks, and in my opinion should correctly attribute the individual mods to their authors with some sort of contact info (Twitter, website, MCF post link, etc).

    If I may also clarify, it's not that I'm against giving the modders credit, or even contacting them! What I AM against is that I can't even use a mod privately. Often times I will add a mod to a pack that's not mine, so I have no rights to be asking permissions for, say, the FTB Unleashed pack.

    Edit: And if you thought this poll was in anyway biased, hoo boy, check Guff's poll out. http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/1775798-164050-plunder-rummage-forge-9111dynamic-treasure-hunting/

    Basically, users can do whatever they want with ALL mods now.

    As it very well should have been from the start, I don't know what took so long.
