At the very least it would be nice of the person receiving the Texture Theft claim to acknowledge the designer who took the time to report and supply templates and an explanation that the report was received and being looked in to and or unfounded etc.
At the very least the item in question should be held until the decision is made by There as to whether it is a texture theft item, instead of going through the submission process and then approved because the people approving do not know what part if all is stolen and if found to be stolen they lose their points. Because they did not know.
If it is There's policy not to even acknowledge the designer's claim then please state that so we no longer waste our time submitting claims. Because if texture theft is not a priority at this time or at least investigating it then the designers submitting their artwork should know this so they can make an informative decision whether or not to put new content into There. I'm sure the designers returning would like to know your stance on this also.
We know the 2 strike rule for texture thief that is not in question. The problem now is with the process of reporting it. A few designers have never heard one word back when they make their claims only to see the items approved in auctions with no word from there.
Now you can ask me why don't I just reject it I can but I'm not getting into a pissing match with my rejection and have 10 "friends" just pile approvals on top of it because they have no clue how to prove or disprove my texture theft claim. Because when I reject in submissions I'm not providing my templates for proof. Also I don't appreciate being griefed for trying to protect my work.
So can a designer who feels her/his work has been stolen and makes a claim by email at least get an email with an acknowledgement or explanation to the findings of the claim. That is all I am asking for. If this is a lot to ask then I'll know what I need to do.
