How nice.... Joymax.

Post by Kigen »

Some online friends have been playing a game called Silkroad. I got on their website and noticed something... Their forums looked like phpBB (altered), but they also removed the copyright, both the one that appears at the bottom of the page and the one in the HTML code thats commented.

Is it just me, or does Joymax owe phpBB a apology?

Technically they're using subSilver icons without permission in a non-phpBB installation. (See the .asp and non-phpBB Naming convention of files.)

Hrm...

Apparently the company is based in Korea.

Also, its known that people will sometimes rename extensions to other things so that hackers have a hard time guessing.

Code: Select all

AddType application/x-httpd-php .asp
The features used in the forum so much resemble that of the phpBB forum software. Like the forum jump. On the other hand, they made it integrate with the game itself.

Apparently there are well over a million players but guess how many people get to moderate them, four....

Anyhow, I know they they removed any credits, for subSilver or phpBB, from the HTML
