    The point is WoW models just arent allowed on this site.
    Doesnt stop you still using them for your own use, or distributing outside this site.

    I disagree and think its foolish as well, but rules are rules and thats thats.
    Theres little point in arguing it further or pointing out that the average person breaks the law/does an 'immoral' thing 1000 times a day.

    Overall the WoW models generally arent good from a war3 point of view anyways and there are plenty of top quality resources on this site already.
    So just deal with it and move on.

    Yes but the way it is enforced on this site makes it look like if it was official Blizzard Entertainment's stance, whereas it's just Hive Workshop's official stance

    ok now i finally understand. I thought they had been released by blizzard as i have a harvest golem model from wc3sear. Braddude in the first couple posts made absolutely no sense as to why it was immoral other than u probably shouldn't use them for their high poly count. Thanks for making sense pyritie!

    And neither does the Hive Workshop, which is why we don't allow discussion of it.

    No. Just no.

    You are an idiot.

    1) You link to an IP address. Major nono.
    2) We do not support Wow Exports. This thread is not meant for discussion, it's a place for n00bs to come so that they can rant instead of making 50 new threads about it every day.
    3) Easy on the spam
    4) Your site wont "damn end" this thread at all, you're getting ignored and rejected right now, and I'll bet my ass that your post isn't going to change the world, let alone this thread.
    5) You aren't helping at all.
    6) We don't let things go around here. Unlike some places, we uphold the rules that we set, and it'd be hypocritical of us if we didn't.
    7) There's nothing fun about getting stolen models.

    Burn in hell.

    stealing Guild Wars icons became really popular among mapmakers, even "respected" ones

    Very kind of you to inform us Jacek, and the site rules dictate that no matter what, we don't accept stolen ANYTHING, be it icons, models, maps, whatever.

    Why can't people realize that WoW models and the ripping of WoW models is a heresy to the HIVE, good map/model making, and just plain common decency and law?

    tyler: Those who promote the thieving of art Especially in an art community (models/skins/maps/spells/ect count as art) makes them lower than the scum excreted by the poop of primordial slime.

    No flaming intended.

    I've removed the link. I don't care if you voice your opinion about the issue, that's what the thread is for.

    However, this doesn't mean that site policy will change, and it still stands.

    Do not link to WoW exports, do it once more and you'll merit an infraction from me personally.

    Also, please refrain from insulting the staff of this site, you are welcome here as long as you don't disrupt the pleasant environment. If you do, then we have a problem.

    One last thing: I am cold-hearted in situations like this. Tough luck.

    I don't blame you Chris, you HAVE to be cold hearted in a situation like this. No matter what, we AREN'T changing the rules, we will absolutely not support illegal model rips in any way shape or form.

    What you CAN do is use existing models as a reference for making your OWN models FROM SCRATCH in their likeness.

    For example, you can make all the Star Wars models you want (just look at Olaf Moleman) and we'll take them, but to rip a model from a game like Battlefront or KotOR would be completely unacceptable.

    Or like most of the models for WotTH. Like that imp thing Chriz animated looked A LOT like the wow imps. But it was just a reference. Apparently.
