This time my request may seemed to a bit... odd I'd say but I hope once I'll explain it to you, you'll get my point of view.
As you know many of us are doing great work by contributing to the MF community with great games, graphics, Mario Worker levels etc. However not everyone is geniune about that. What I mean is that some people are copy-paste level design, music and other things from orginal creators (like me in this example) and then use them as their own, without even letting know about using such things or giving credits. Here you have quick example:
Isn't this looks similar to something else? Yeah it's let's call it "rip-off" of my World -7 I released recently. Music, level design, theme and atmosphere, even some graphics are copy of those I used. Doesn't it too close copy for you? For me it is. I could show you more examples of copying stuff like castle level which seems really close to one did by PS (World PS-4 if I'm not wrong), or waving autoscroll from airship level. Do you think it is good?
Now here's my opinion - from my point of view, when someone is copying things I worked really hard at them is really bad this. Even worse it is when you (who play MF games) take look at such "production" calling it good when it's clearly rip-off of other production. Believe me, it's highly discouraging for me and other producers who put a lot effort to make their games unique. By playing those copy games, you support those people who copy original ideas, not those who develop them. Think about that. What I'm asking for is supporting those people, who make new things, not those who just copy ideas. Please don't call game a good one, when it's just a shadow of orginal production.
Thanks for reading and hope for your support
