I have ported a good model but while porting  a guy came and said "go do it somewhere else" like its his neighborhood.

    Yes because its one of the few companies that don't like their stuff in other games as mods. Though say, texture hacks inspired by Blizzard content is fine.

    Blizzard does not allow porting of any kind.

    The porting whitelist has all the companies which do and do not allow porting of content between games.

    Thanks for the informations. Is there another place other than tf2mods to put mods? Tf2mods is kinda dead.

    Unless you do it privately or do it in a closed off group of friends and never release it, It can be done.

    Honestly I don't know why you would want to put characters not meant for the game in the game and then fuck up the game.

    As VOCTOR pointed out, Blizzard is a no-go when it comes to making public ports. While they don't seem to have any issues with fan projects (unless it's something using their assets for pornographic or defamatory material), they do not wish for people to actually distribute ported content that contains their assets in any way. While you can probably share the content between yourself and a few friends, making the ports publicly available is highly advised against.
    Not as serious as you'd think.
