    From a very quick look at it, it looks quite big.

    Thanks again.

    He explained that he liked the photos alot and wanted to be able to access them easily under one account, hence the posting of pictures on his flickr page. He apologises for the inconvenience and misunderstanding caused in this forum but hopes that you guys understand that he never intended to state that the pictures were his in the first place.

    While I appreciate that forum members appreciate intellectual property rights and are averse to "ripping off" images from another website, I am personally disturbed that some members took such great lengths to find his name, school, speculate about purple and even post his photo on the internet.

    I do not condone his actions, as I do know the value of my one's own photos, but posting his picture with the words "THIS PERSON IS A LEECHER" leans on the side of vindictiveness, don't you think?

    Once again, he is sorry for what he has done and wishes to apologise for what he has done. I hope that the misunderstanding behind those pictures and their posting on his flickr account will be cleared with this post. People make mistakes sometimes, and if they're willing to admit and sort out the error, then we should let bygones be bygones. =)

    timber - well, its nice of him to take down the pics... but, IMO, he shld be man enuf to come out and apologize. dunno how the rest feel, but from 5.02pm till now 9.49pm (as i'm typing), he had 4+hrs to delete the pics, hide his tracks etc.... dat simply suck.

    a little too little too late, IMO.

    Hello nightwolf,
    I've not been following this thread due to my commontests, but I only reached home at 9.30 which is when +evenstar informed me about this thread and the errant photos. Do tell me about what happened?

    QX

    Edit: He will be posting a public apology shortly.
    Chill people.

    Thank you for clarifying the issue Timber Wolf. However, it would be better of him to personally apologize to the respective parties whose pictures were misused, dont you think so too? "he never intended to state that the pictures were his in the first place" if you look through the history of his threads in cs, you will know that he posted quite a few pictures that didnt belong to him and stating that he took them. HERE. Cheers.

    get him here and say those magical words la.

    some members here are not what they might make themselves out to be la. just a'lil more harsh on the outside.

    and some of them might not just let this issue go off so easily, esp. when someone took their works and passed off as that person's own, well, it does not, in my view, look at all 'liked the photos alot and wanted to be able to access them easily under one account'.

    that's baloney and bulls to me. well, it might not be to u.

    let bygones be bygones? can la... get him in here and talk to the rest la.
    if this drags on, there might be private civilian lawsuit.

    Roger that. I saw some newer posts and the examples of his plagarism. As posted above, he is currently writing a public apology and will be posting it very soon.

    hi timber wolf. was content to just eat popcorn and watch this thread, but his "explanation" to you really pushed me over the edge.

    if you read the thread that klose just linked, you'll see that he not only posted someone else's picture under his APAD thread, he then proceeded to talk about how he got in the cockpit, what kind of cutlery etc.

    if all he wanted to do was to collect pix in one place, then why'd he take the effort to crop out the watermark in the original pix? the facts speak for themselves.

    i understand that as his club president you may feel the need to stand by him and try to be fair. but if someone wants forgiveness, they must be sincere in their apologies, and not come up with half-baked (ok bad joke) excuses.

    *edit - sorry, just saw your latest post.

    Tell him A.net treats this type of cases very seriously and may take legal action. A public apology may work for some but A.net?

    I'm stating the obvious, but you do know now that he was trying to pull a fast one on you, and that given the effort he's been putting to cover his tracks, he's merely writing the apology because he has truly got nowhere to run.

    Hello. I've called roti_prata. He cannot post from his account and hence has created the account "clone_roti_prata" and apologised in the thread here.

    This has been an unpleasant and unfortunate incident and I hope that his apology will be sufficient resolution for all parties.

    To +evenstar:
    I appreciate it that you informed me about the thread, but I would like to make it clear to all parties that what roti_prata did was on a personal basis, and that RJC Photography Club has no involvement whatsoever in his actions.

    Thank you,

    Timberwolf, If I were you, I would not buy his story.
    I don't believe that he copied the photos into his account just for him to access it with more convenience, because if he did, why the need to remove the 'airliners.net' watermark?
    He has also stated in another thread that the photos were taken by him, and that it were some of ''his'' better photos.
