LOOK FAMILIAR TO YOU?

[ April 15th 2007 ]
almost ten years we have been running our web
site, we've had the good fortune of meeting some
wonderful folk from all quarters, some in their
official capacity as employees of Eidos,
and many right here on our own
forum and magazine. For the most part, our
experiences have been both fruitful and positive.
we have noticed of late a select few webmasters
who frequent our web site and forum and steal
both our hard work and that of our members without
any acknowledgment of the time and effort that
has been invested into producing material for
our community. In some cases, some site owners
have even claimed our work as their own.
notably of late, several of our stand-alone Lara
Croft animations that were produced by members
of our forum, our Discography (music) section
on Lara Croft TV (launched
in December 2006) and our own propriety competition
ideas have all been copied and/or used without
permission and/or - more importantly - without
acknowledgement. Exclusive content produced by
us for Sony PSP owners has also been ripped off.
especially hard bringing our readers the level
of service they have come to expect from us, and
while we will not promote the dubious activities
of a small number of site owners by naming and
shaming them right here (perhaps one day we will
publish their humorous emails of "honest
mistakes" for your entertainment if this
continues), we would like to send a message to
the community that this kind of behaviour is not
the majority of our community both appreciates
and recognises honest hard work and like us have
been dismayed by the actions of a select few who
choose to conduct their nefarious activities in
a dishonest and poor fashion. As a result, some
of these web sites have been banned from broadcasting
their activities on our forum and we have refused
to offer them any further support.
we don't intend on addressing this issue again
in the future, may this message serve as notice
that our community - along with our team right
here on our magazine - are watching the actions
of those select few in the hope that some day
they will conduct their business with honour,
integrity and honesty.
meantime, while they may continue to rip off our
ideas and content and make fraudulent claims against
others, they will not stifle our passion or commitment
to the franchise. We are perfectly happy to lead
by example, as we have often done so in the past.
broadcasts to more than 50,000 readers every single
day and is chosen among others for its integrity,
passion and honesty. We look forward to continuing
this level of commitment in the future.
