Customer service best practice != legal obligation.

First, thank you for the song!  Hayden's Theme has a great mix of adventure and determination - it really caught the mood I was going for with the intro.

Second, thank you for trying it out!  Unfortunately, you've seen most of what it has to offer for the moment - there's really only one biome (the tan brick dungeon with random goblins), and while better weapons with some elemental effects are available after you reach L5 or so, I'm still working on other content.  For now, it's just one long slog of exploring and fighting with no real endpoint.

If I may ask, do you recall the circumstances under which the game crashed?  I know there's a bug or two in the item system, and there's at least one bug with how Love2D handles .ogg headers occasionally - any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, and thanks again!

Yea, because someone with well over 100 contributions: 3d models, music, textures, you name it, is a "Troll" and the aggressor here, while people who took down the person's portfolio due to disliking the person's speech are amongst the angels and saints.

If quantity of one's work is the only measure of their importance, does that make Uwe Boll a superior director to Stanley Kubrick, or Ed Wood the greatest director of all time?  It's possible to be both highly productive and a total hack at the same time, and besides, neither quantity nor quality of your submissions have any bearing on whether your conduct was against this site's rules.

Furthermore we will likely be subpoenaing this website for information about all detractors, including you dannorder. We will comb over your utterances for any untrue derisive statements, and we will also submit to the court your current statements about our "ignorance".

We first would like to give OpenGameArt the opportunity to graciously re-activate Mr MikeeUSA's portfolio page and his ability to submit new works, and for OGA to issue a public apology for putting the feelings of liberal anti-speech activists above the works of actual opensource contributors.

The irony is strong with this one.

From Wesnoth's main README:

The game's source code and artwork, sound, and music assets are provided under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2, or (at your option) any later version. Note that for artwork, sound, and music, we interpret "preferred form of the work for making modifications" as the modifiable form that the author chooses to ship us for the source tree. For convenience, a reference copy of the GNU GPL version 2 is provided in the COPYING file in this distribution.

Wesnoth has been accepted in Debian for years - this is not an obscure oversight, this is a fairly major project openly expressing an interpretation of the source clause which has been accepted readily by the Debian maintainers.  Does anyone have any Debian policy documentation to the contrary?  Not mailing list or forum discussions, but actual hard documentation of Debian's stance as an organization?

As a final parting thought, consider this consequence: under the OP's interpretation of the source clause, most CC0/PD works cannot be relicensed as GPL, since very few CC0 works include such a 'source form'.

Is OGA the party doing the distribution, or is it the channel through which others are distributing the works?  Seems like petty semantics, but if it's the latter, I'd think OGA doesn't need to care about providing the source - the uploader is the party doing the distributing, and is therefore responsible for providing the source to those who request it (whether via a file upload here, a download on their own site, shipped physical media, whatever).  Is there any legal precedent regarding licensee responsibilities of user-content hosting sites like, say, NewGrounds or Wikimedia?  Does the Safe Harbor provision of the DMCA apply in a circumstance like this?

Honestly, this is why I despise viral licenses like the GPL - they're a bunch of vague, unenforceable nonsense that even the authors can't agree on the meaning of.  It reminds me of playing MtG with my friends back in high school: three hours spent arguing about the rules and the interpretation of card text for every half hour of actual playtime.  I release my own assets as CC0, because I want people to actually be able to use them without a f**king four-page discussion first.

**Edit: To be clear, any animosity above is directed at the authors of such licenses - it's good that OGA has a community that takes such things seriously and cares about both the artists and the users of the assets here.  I really just wish the organizations behind the GPL and CC-By-SA would clarify their murky language so we don't need to endlessly debate this stuff, as it's time the community could better spend elsewhere.

A) That is a spam bot. Don't expect a meaningful answer from it.

B) No messages were removed - check the forum.  You posted duplicate topics.

The body animation looks good so far.  My only complaint would be that the angle of her head doesn't match that of her body - when her left arm is forward it looks great, as in the last still image, but animated (and especially in the frame with her right arm forward) it feels a bit awkward.

There used to be an aggregate page under your User profile which displayed all of your submissions and downloads of each, but OGA has since moved on to displaying it right on each individual submission, just to the right of the download link.

However there is a rub: a main contributor to that game hates feminists, and is pro-marry-girl-children, and often cites Deuteronomy 22 28-29 in the original hebrew.

I'm not familiar with Deuteronomy - could you explain that passage and its importance to your project's main contributor? What is its relevance to the project, and do you agree or disagree with it?
