Stop reuploading sky
- A Forum Thread for Friday Night Funkin'
I honestly wish this thread didn't have to be made, but people keep reuploading.
A similar thread was made like this one a couple weeks ago, but because it's been 2 months it's no longer easily visible, so I want to make a new one. Uploading the Sky mod will result in your submission being trashed. bbpanzu himself has stated that the Sky mod should not be reuploaded as it was the source of many issues, including pornographic art being made of a character that was made by a minor, death threats being sent to a minor, and many other things.
If you see something like these, take it as a hint that what you've uploaded is not allowed.
By reuploading the mod, you are contributing to the problems that got it taken down in the first place and causing more issues. Save yourself and others the trouble by not reuploading. If you still have the files, great. Keep them to yourself. Share them with your friends in a Google Drive or something. Don't reupload the mod here. If you want the Sky mod yourself, see if one of your friends has it and if they do, ask them to send it to you. Or, and this is something that isn't as good of an idea, grab the source off of bbpanzu's GitHub commit history and compile it in Kade Engine yourself. Again, the latter should be avoided, partially because it'll be an extra 25GB or so of things you have to download and install for like 200 or so MB worth of game files.
Today alone, I found and reported three separate reuploads of the Sky mod. I've honestly thought about applying to be a Manager of the FNF section partially to remove these reuploads, but I'm not going to apply because I don't feel like I would be responsible enough to handle that kind of thing.
Again, do not reupload the Sky mod to GameBanana or itch.io. You're contributing to the problems that arose from the original by doing so. I've seen users get banned off of itch.io for reuploading mods from GameBanana without permission.
Before you ask any of these, I have answers for them.
Why was the Sky mod deleted in the first place? bbpanzu deleted the mod because he felt responsible for the pornographic art and death threats being sent to the original creator of Sky.
Why are the staff being rude? They're not being rude, they're being stern.
The Sky mod was good, why can't we reupload it? Read the fucking thread. The Sky mod may have been good, but the issues that arose from it were not. Trust the judgement of the GameBanana Staff in this situation.
Is there anything I can do to help stop the reuploads from appearing? Yes! If you yourself do not have the mod and want it, ask a friend. Also, if you see a reupload, click the Report button and state that the mod is against the rules as the original creator has asked for it to not be reuploaded.
I love the Sky mod but I hate how nobody actually follows the rules on this. Never re-upload a mod without the OP's permission, and especially don't even think about uploading it if it's against the site rules.
My question is why you think it matters to delete it at this point when the damage is already done. Do you think just because you delete it that its going to solve itself? That those people are suddenly gonna stop existing?
Seems really short sighted if you ask me, and frankly, I'd even argue that its fanning the flames of the problem considering, again, THOSE PEOPLE WON'T DISAPPEAR.
In fact, I'd argue by exposing the outrage surrounding it CONSTANTLY, you've learned nothing from the whole experience. Hell, I never would've known Sky was a vulnerable child if not for you guys. Imagine if I was a predator interested only in famous kids, and I decided to obsessively track her down.
That would be on you guys, are you gonna suddenly change your mind again and UNBAN the content then? I'd hope you'd at least not mix in her F***ING contact info, God I hope it doesn't take that. I hope that never happens as well of course, need to iterate that with how short sighted people can be, I'm just saying this reactionary way of thinking is flawed.
Well, then again, I guess its really hard for people to own up to their mistakes, this is just one method of ignoring the problem, the PLUG YOUR FINGER IN YOUR EARS AND CLOSE YOUR EYES kind of solution.
Granted, I'm not sure if you yourself are a mod, just a mod maker from what I read, but I stand by what I said, this whole solution to the problem being just removing it is just.... Dumb.
People don't read the rules often which i find annoying. READ THE FUCKING RULES FIRST BEFORE UPLOADING! Some people on GB thinking sky mods are allowed without thinking outside the box. It's a simple rule, why can't people follow it?
