Below is a little point of etiquette for everyone who uses SOR Maker.
While map stages and their components have been provided elsewhere on this forum for our use in creating our mods, some users will have taken the time to rip original stages from ROMs in order to make their own mods more unique. Of course, not everyone will have been able to do so due to time constraints or other commitments in life, or they may not have the knowledge, skill or tools to rip said stages for themselves (though ideally we would all have the time and skills to rip stages for ourselves); so as a consequence, these users may wind up taking stage maps from other users' mods to spruce up their own mods.
With this under consideration, below are listed a few suggested guidelines to avoid stepping on other mod-builders' toes when constructing your own mods. If you feel you need to borrow stage maps from others' mods, please adhere to the following:
(1) Ask the other users' permission first, even if they don't respond right away or at all. This is only common courtesy. If you do ask, at least they'll have the message in their inbox so they can't say you didn't.
(2) Where you have used a stage map from another person's mod (as opposed to downloading it somewhere else on the web), give credit to the other mod-creator. You can do this either in the credits of your own mod, or in the thread where you post the download link for your mod. This is especially applicable if they haven't given a speedy response to Point #1 above.
(3) This one should really be obvious: Resist the temptation to take the plot or stage outline (other than the map itself) of another user's mod and pass it off as your own. This is stealing and will not be appreciated.
Other recommendations may be submitted for addition to this list at any time.
