    I LOVE the new Alien Soup forum style..
    The guys over at InsideThePixel.com have done a fantastic job, and I may well consider them for a future design I have in mind for Umbrella Online when I have a reasonable amount of money.

    Glad that the rip was found and reported.. Some people these days *shakes head*.

    I like the design even if it is a bit graphic intense.

    It isn't that hard to copy a style, they all use very similar code that can be interchanged with very little modifications, just make a new style from one that is edited already upload the images and change the replacement for image folder and it is probably 80% done, just have to tweak it a bit.

    I noticed a phpBB site that stole the design of wiredgamers.com I have contacted wiredgamers if you would like information about that then PM me.

    That would mean he would have to h4x0r into the other site's vB3 admin cp and export the style.

    Most likely, it's just a copy-paste job for the header, footer, catbit, and postbit templates.

    Maybe through XML? Don't know it's a guess.

    Sorry if I'm dragging this on, but how does he simply copy these styles so easy? I think it would be a pain in the arse editing each template.

    Thats not a his skin, nor vBSkinz' skin. And, that copyright violates the required copyright, by not having the year, or company name.
    he's also running vB3, i might start a new thread for this (this no longer has anything todo with the aliensoup style)

    Well, luckily for us, the vBulletin License Agreement protects us to a degree in regards to copyright infringements.

    Ironically, their down for a day or two: http://www.neoforum.co.uk/
    Anyway, its a shame that people rip work and claim credit.. I doubt that license is even theirs! Anyway, with my custom style being built, for the price I'm paying, I'd be steaming if someone ripped it. It must be harder for a designer, because that was their work that was put into there.. Great job on the skin, once again.

    This guy is a total joke. His web design portfolio is simply a completion of other peoples work. I see a few Ravio templates, a few Vereor templates, and some other ripped work.

    Hey Campers,

    This issue was brought to my attention yesterday morning... I wrote an e-mail to the site owner yesterday afternoon as well as posting a message to his attention on his website and the style is now removed from their site (and of course my message deleted however I have the screenshots).

    Thanks to those here who have 'had our backs' in this and/or complimented the hard work involved by d2alio, Xelation, and I. We appreciate the kind words we really do.

    -Jason
