    Time to ban someone. Either permanently or temporary. Thievery is not something our forum should tolerate. We have this guy, Metalis, who stole icons (older so we won't notice), added them passive and posted them as if they were his. Here is the proof:

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/?p=Icons&ID=5739 (Original)
    http://www.wc3sear.ch/?p=Icons&ID=9172 (Metalis)

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/?p=Icons&ID=3823 (Original)
    http://www.wc3sear.ch/?p=Icons&ID=9179 (Metalis)

    http://www.wc3sear.ch/?p=Icons&ID=5206 (Original)
    http://www.wc3sear.ch/?p=Icons&ID=9174 (Metalis)

    Oh, and warn that guy who keeps commenting that these icons belong to Metalis. Why would three completely different users steal from Metalis? It's much more probable for a single person to steal from others. Have a nice day punishing people!

    No, I don't think that's what he means... I think he's telling Metalis that all these icons have already been made before... and he says he's giving credit to the original maker(s), which makes me think so.

    Lol! Your right this guy needs a ban (either temporary or permanent like you said).

    *searches for elfy*

    There should be a check of IPs through.
