Nope, I got no C&D letter from Blizzard.
Nope, Proboards didn't gave me any information regarding why did they deleted turbohud.freeforums.org.
Yes, I am outraged too.
Yes, there is a GOOD CHANCE (nothing more) that Blizzard's legal move against a known bot maker and TurboHUD forum's deletion within a day is not a coincidence.
Yes, I contacted Ket (Administrator) on OwnedCore about possible hosting TurboHUD there.
No, he/she didn't responded to any of my private messages.
No, I won't host TurboHUD forum on anybody's forum.
No, I won't host TurboHUD on my own forum (neither on free forum hosting, nor self-hosted payed environments).
Without "No," and "Yes,": Currently I have no place to host TurboHUD, because it looks like somebody (private person or Blizzard) hunted down the old one, so it can happen with the new one. Ownedcore could be an option, but after the failed communication with Ket I guess they don't like me, or they already got some warning from Blizzard, or I am just paranoid.
Also, because the legal move against bots COULD affect my personal life, even knowing I haven't got any C&D letter yet, I am not willing to share TurboHUD for 2.5.0 under the current circumstances. Call me pussy, please...
I just don't understand Blizzard. Why? * they never wrote me a single email with the word: "Stop, please." * they never wrote me any threatening email, or official letter. * usually they did not deleted TurboHUD related posts from Battle.net forums (!) * and now they POSSIBLY deleted turbohud.freeforums.net. Why? * if it wasn't them, then who had the power to force proboards to do this? I hardly believe they got rid of thousands of users (=ad income) just because a random guy reported our forum as "cheat"...
TLDR: HUD won't be released until the situation is not FULLY CLEAR. However I have no plans about how to MAKE IT CLEAR.
Our options are limited and even the available ones are totally idiot and won't work: * ask Blizzard for information in support ticket - they won't reponse, or just quote the EULA * ask proboard for information - I did, and got no answer just bullshit about section 25 * ask ownedcore about hosting and their stance on DMCA, but based on my experience they won't reponse * release HUD on a random forum - it will be taken offline just like the original. Also if the original forum's takedown was really initiated by Blizzard, then I risk getting a C&D at the end of the day... in best case...
So I have no clue how to solve this, I can't solve this, and probably it won't solve itself.
PS1: I barely read reddit, so I won't respond here. PS2: please spare your conspiracy theories for yourself and keep this post clean of shit...
