Fair enough, but not like I share it with anyone else trying to take credit away from you and is only used on my site only. Actually, it isn't even called MCHAT used on my forum now, all files was changed to name it Shoutbox instead and some css was even changed for prosilver (to fix an issue with avatars being able to use a border) because you used padding wrong instead of margin spacing - and other things added like H Tag for main shoutbox page title. http://general-discussion.com/shoutbox
I have made a lot of changes to it for use with my site only and not for anyone else to use it. I wouldn't do that sharing it and try and take any credit away from you. It just modifications to suit my site only
Glad you're taking such an approach and not planning on sharing the code.
I've used mChat for a client as well and have modified it plenty to fit in with what they want so it's not unusual to do things like that based on the site needs, although I didn't bother going as far as removing or modifying the file headers.
FYI for those seeing this: while a user might be well within their ability to remove or replace file header sections (aka credits), extension authors do also have the right to deny service/support/help/etc. if a user is found to have done so. In a different situation or platform, i.e. code is proprietary, litigation might even be possible.
I added link in footer displayed on every page (not just mchat pages) last night to show I'm not trying to pretend I created it or anything. As said before also, I didn't make the modification changes to share it and pretend like I created it, no matter how it might look. it's only used on my site. To be honest my site is probably closing down for good in December, or before then anyway. As I was running WoltLab Burning 4.1 software with 3 extra paid add-ons (Gallery, Filebase and Blog) 2 months ago until selling licences because forums are dead - and only really installed phpBB again to play around with to see out rest of my years hosting left to run till Dec of this year. So come then it won't matter either way when no site is there and why I've not bothered installing RC6... no point me using it now.
As for kasimi, I understand him him getting miffed off, he's a helpful guy towards others in this topic, has even helped me out with a few times. If he maybe wants a copy of the mod to look at some of the changes I've made with css for prosilver with avatars and displaying the H2 tag title on main shoutbox page to help improve RC6 further, he can PM me and I'll send him the mod attachment to look at via private message
I also noticed last night while adding the footer append template back to show link in footer. Why are you using a DIV wrapped around copyright code that means another DIV gets displayed inside the phpBB copyright DIV used. It really shouldn't be using a DIV and only needs a <br> added at start of copyright so the Admin Panel login link sits flush right below the MCHAT copyright using a <br> also before it - instead of it creating some whitespace between that and mchat copyright because it uses a DIV and the admin panel links uses a <br> after it.
it should look like this viewing source code not using a DIV with MCHAT copyright footer append, it only needs a <br> adding before the start of code
Using the DIV it looks like this (no need for a DIV inside another DIV and creates unwanted space between MCHAT copyright and Admin Panel login):
