Wasn't sure where to put this so I figured it would best fit here. Anyways I need help in being shown where I can report a costume thief who has decided to steal most of my costumes from my Dark Souls Costume Gallery levels and claim them as his own. So since he won't give credit to the original owner I figure I would find a way to get the levels taken down if possible. Any suggestions or what?

It is too bad that they claim your work as their own, but there really isn't anything you can do. Well.. except maybe leave a note on his level thread saying "Thank you for your appreciation of my costumes, but it would have been nice to at least give me the recognition". ..and go on your way. Whenever you are in the business of creation for others, they will do whatever they want. ...even claim the work as their own.

Yeah did that. Figured there wouldn't be much else to do but thought I would ask just in case if there was some means to do so. Really is quite annoying. How complicated is it to just give a little credit to original creator?

Unfortunately there isn't much you can do. It is annoying that people don't give credit where it's due.

Thanks and yeah sucks but oh well. Guess the only good thing really is that he isn't getting popular off them and a few people have noticed that most of his levels are just copy levels or have stolen stuff.

You can report him to Sony or mm for stealing other's work. It's in the Eula somewhere...

I don't think in this context it is. ...and then keep in mind the costumes are replicas of another video game.
