You've already posted this elsewhere....

What's the point exactly?

He's not actually taking credit of it.. He's just not giving significant credits :unsure:

@ AndyJ – No you do NOT need Root to follow this guide.

@fred – Yes this is Seb’s ROM, it is by far the best I have used.

Sure.
It also happens on many different forums that some guys further customize the ROMs published here, usually they mention the origin their work is based on.

This is not the case here.

He's a bit dubious when he says stuff like "After allot of messing around I now have a stable version of Froyo 2.2 working on my Orange San Francisco / ZTE Blade"
The odd thing is in other posts (ie. some of the Wii stuff) he is crediting other people.

Stupid, all he needs to do is add some credits and everyone is happy - his guides look nice and simple to follow (well they would be being ripped from here:))

Credit should be given to developers who spend a lot of their time helping guys like us to learn and have decent roms.Its polite creates good will makes people realise their hard work is valued and best of all is free to do... its nice to be nice... manners are free!!!

Which one? You seem to like copying and pasting. Rather backs up the view that this forum needs sub-forums where someone can contribute something, without actually contributing much.

Not sure what you expected to achieve. Apart from making you feel better somehow.

The main problem I have with them is that they become out of date and give bad advice to people - I.E OLED roms on TFT devices

Then people end up here.

At least that one says MoDaCo in it, the Chris plagarist is passing it off as his own.

WOW! that is definately yours steve without a doubt! this is what im talking about. A guy spends ages typing the guide getting the info right to help people get a better phone and the least someone can do is give some credit to the person who has put the time in and done the hard work... i remember somebody on xda doing the same thing with a certain devolopers roms eventually he got found out,if he had given credit to the original developers nobody would have minded,but he didnt and ended up looking like a muppet.

To be honest it doesn't bother me much at all.

The internet is like this : Thanks for your support thou.

No worries steve just had to have a rant lol if more of us moan about it then hopefully people will think twice.. Just give some credit and kudos to the developers folks... A pat on the back is always appreciated!... " Its nice to be nice" "manners are free"
