Bg4545, since you sound like an expert on illegal things let me ask you this: [http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/privacyCoC.jsp this page] says 'Unauthorized technical modifications to your Wii Console voids your warranty and may be illegal. Nintendo may make technical changes to the Wii Console, software and/or Wii Network Service to disable the modification.'. Now nintendo does disable modifications with every new version of system menu, and one thing that it deletes every time is homebrew channel. Now question to you: do you want to be consistent and delete everything on wiibrew.org that 'may be illegal'? If so, nintendo gives you a hint what they think is unathorized mod that may be illegal. Do you want to start policing that? Just to be clear I dont like any of those themes, i didnt install any of that. I just wanted to chime in on the 'legality' debate. --[[User:Spec|Spec]] 21:18, 3 September 2010 (CEST)

All the statements you made about homebrew being unauthorized, but not illegal could be applied to themes you are policing. But the themes don't use reverse engineering to run and they dont circumvent protections which is all illegal according to DMCA in US and similar laws in other countries. Plus you got games using trademarks like Super Mario (even if they are entirely created by users). How about emulators - didn't sony get a court order to kill one of the emulators? Another legal action [http://www.zdnetasia.com/sony-sues-another-software-firm-over-playstation-emulator-13028033.htm here]. Also wouldn't it be illegal for nintendo to remove software from wii that you are saying is legal? Wouldn't nintedo expect a possible legal action if they kept doing that?  How about [http://hackmii.com/2010/04/check-disk-for-pre-repair-process/#more-1006 this post], search for word 'illegal' and see what nintendo thinks is illegal. And you are policing posts by some guy saying "email me so I can give you a link to a site". Please... --[[User:Spec|Spec]] 16:00, 5 September 2010 (CEST)

Revision as of 16:00, 5 September 2010

Hi. I saw your icon for AnyRegion Changer and thought it was pretty spiffy. :) People have been asking for inclusion of an icon in the official releases, and I was wondering if I could do so with your icon. I would of course provide attribution in all readmes for all releases using it, etc. --tona 01:36, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah sure, you can use it. Sorry I haven't checked this in a while. --Bg4545 07:05, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the very simple edit. I'm bad with Wiki Markup and what not. --BKW/TPAINROXX 03:09, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Icon Requests Here

Make a request for me to make an icon, I'd like to know the name, what the app does, and anything else about it here.--Bg4545 01:22, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

This is still open to anyone who wants an icon.png for their app... --bg4545 23:54, 27 June 2009 (UTC)


Completed

i love your icons, if you could add Fs browser, Xyzzy and menu loader please Octoroks 23:41, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Hey Bg4545, I like your icons! Any chance you would make one for WiiMU? It's a replacement for the standard Wii System Menu. You can find more information at its page, WiiMU. Thanks! --SquidMan 06:27, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Wow, thanks for the quick response! I love it =D Keep up the good work, man! --SquidMan 00:01, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Backup Utility

Well, I'm a lot of busy and only remotely interested in doing this. But I guess it's sort of "still there." It will probably be winter break for me before I get time to work on anything of the sort --Tona 23:19, 26 November 2008 (UTC)


userboxes

did you make the ps3/ps2/xbox, etc. userboxes? --Darklink 02:52, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Edit Warring

Please stop the edit warring. The screenshot will stay at Extrems', for the reason that yours isn't a screenshot but rather a mockup. --Tantric 05:18, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Well actually it is his Theme.. plus I think the mockup looks better and pretty much serves the same purpose. So why fix it if it aint broke? Randomdude 06:49, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Also the warring was pointless you should of just discussed it... in each others talk page.... Randomdude 06:51, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
@Tantric Understood. @Randomdude I tried.. --bg4545 01:25, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Legality

Bg4545, since you sound like an expert on illegal things let me ask you this: this page says 'Unauthorized technical modifications to your Wii Console voids your warranty and may be illegal. Nintendo may make technical changes to the Wii Console, software and/or Wii Network Service to disable the modification.'. Now nintendo does disable modifications with every new version of system menu, and one thing that it deletes every time is homebrew channel. Now question to you: do you want to be consistent and delete everything on wiibrew.org that 'may be illegal'? If so, nintendo gives you a hint what they think is unathorized mod that may be illegal. Do you want to start policing that? Just to be clear I dont like any of those themes, i didnt install any of that. I just wanted to chime in on the 'legality' debate. --Spec 21:18, 3 September 2010 (CEST)

Legality

All the statements you made about homebrew being unauthorized, but not illegal could be applied to themes you are policing. But the themes don't use reverse engineering to run and they dont circumvent protections which is all illegal according to DMCA in US and similar laws in other countries. Plus you got games using trademarks like Super Mario (even if they are entirely created by users). How about emulators - didn't sony get a court order to kill one of the emulators? Another legal action here. Also wouldn't it be illegal for nintendo to remove software from wii that you are saying is legal? Wouldn't nintedo expect a possible legal action if they kept doing that? How about this post, search for word 'illegal' and see what nintendo thinks is illegal. And you are policing posts by some guy saying "email me so I can give you a link to a site".
