Well, as we all know, we don't like being robbed of something in LittleBigPlanet, especially costumes(well, to me.) This entire week, I have had about 20 people trying to steal my costumes, of which only 1 succeeded, due to lag. I got very angry at this, so I decided to get payback. I pulled out a Community Object, from someone named LordofTrolls, & placed it into their Moon. It was a Spammer, which meant that it spams out emitters with other boxes & junk with more emitters, causing serious lag. I placed it, & RtP'd(Return to POD) I got a message later on from the Costume Stealer, saying that I almost broke his PS3. In all honesty, was this a bit too harsh? I just HATE getting my Creations stolen.

Hmmmm... well It wasn't a mature thing to do, but i doubt that it almost broke his ps3. Probably just super lag. if you don't want you costume stolen just don't wear one worth stealing. that is the only way to prevent it from getting stolen 100%. if you have a lot of dlc use some stickers hidden to prevent some people w/o dlc.

By 'break' he probably meant 'freeze'.
I dunno. He just put "u amost broke my ps3!!!1!11" & never responded afterwards.
Well, I wouldn't have to be forced to Reset my costume, if these people weren't around or if Mm made it so that the Copy P1-4 Option in the Sackbot isn't in effect, until Play Mode.The name's Iron Volvametal & don't you forget it!
- Steals an ingame costume, a virtual item, which could've been prevenmted if user he stole the costume from, didn't try to show off to all strangers, considering his costume has been attemptedly stolen many times.
- Attempts to freeze/ break a $300+ PS3, because someone copied his costume, something that really wouldn't affect him at all, and coul've been extremely easly avoided by simply not wearing the costume to strangers and people he doesn't trust.
Analize it, and decide for yourself.
Yes, people shouldn't steal, no, not everyone's gonna play by the rules, so yes, you should be more careful, its not your fault, nor was it good of him, tho its still not justifiable.
I have had multiple object stolen from me by friends of "friends". Nothing makes me more angry when some troll comes along and captures my work after I put weeks if not months into its devlopment. I resorted to posting their names on the Wall of Shame on my little big court level. Had 3 people report it to Mm...nothing happened. To be honest, I dont blame you for what you did. I think you did the right thing. His PS3 freezing will not break it. I can guarentee the he will think twice before doing that again.
Tbh I don't think it's too harsh (though sending a message first might be better).
This is the way I personally see it. These users, who are stealing costumes, are negatively affecting the gaming experience (Users should be able to wear what they want without having to fear it being stolen by anyone) of the users who they are stealing costumes from. In return he's got his own back by freezing the other players system (if it froze at all, it may have only caused heavy lag) Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but it's near impossible to break a system because of lag. And if the system does break it's much more likely it had design fault and was going to break anyway.
I wouldn't feel guilty for doing it, but, at the same time I wouldn't care if someone stole my costume anyway. Sure it'd irk me a bit, but, imo it's a pretty insignificant thing to worry about.
Many thanks to TheZimInvader for the great sackboy
Seriously, do people think because someone's in your friends list, that they're you're friends and can tell them and show them anything?
Like I said, its not ok what they did, but you guys gota be more careful.
You go around showing every single person you come by, anything and everything you have, you're gonna get things stolen.
Always make sure they're not the kind to steal before letting them in your create mode, check their behaviour before entering theirs with a costume or before trying to show off objects.
Because lets be honest, 99% of "victims" are just trying to show off their objects/ costumes to anyone they meet, then when it gets stolen the get complaining, when they just weren't being careful.
I mean, look at OP, he says people have tried to steal his costume constantly, yet instead of not wearing it with randoms, he HAS to show off, instead of being careful, what happened?
It got stolen.
Its always until they get something stolen until they finally try to think...
@Silver But isn't LittleBigPlanet supposed to be about showing your Creativity & hard work, usually in the form of Costumes &/or levels?
@Sascha...Aren't you the person who published "LittleBigCourt" in LBP1?
@SR20DETDOG Well, to me, I think everyone has their own little "Signature" Costume, like my Helghast with the Mantis arms over there, that they don't want anyone else having, except them. Just my Opinion, though.

Sorry i cant wait for you to get back from school IronSkullKid99 Dx i cant stand people who just take an item without asking first,or a unique costume that took a long time to design & make the stickers for. I always default my sackboy when im with strangers now though. I would have done the same,even better if they sent a message like that. I would keep the message so i could look at it and lol from time to time.
They did something you don't like, you did something they don't like. Fair game if you ask me, even if it can be argued one method was worse than the other and this and that could be avoided, but why change your costume for idiots who want to steal them? Why should I have to have my experience hindered by playing to the rules of others? They can hinder my experience by taking my costume or forcing me to wear some crap costume, but I can't hinder them back by whatever means I deem suitable, in this case it was a troll style emitter. If they can hinder and spoil my experience, no reason to not be able to do it back. Personally why should we think about what we do back to someone because it might break their PS3? Maybe if that person had thought about their actions and the consequences before stealing a costume from someone, they wouldn't have suffered the troll emitter of doom or any other course of revenge or payback. I'm not going to take consideration for those who weren't considerate in the first place. The costume stealer had it coming to him. Simple as in my book.
Couldn't you just switch outfits when playing with people you don't trust? There's really no way to prevent them from "stealing" it, per se, but you can prevent all of that by just switching costumes or just not wearing amongst the general public. Treat your best outfits like a $1,000,000 watch or something. You probably wouldn't wear something like that on the shady part of town, now, would you?
As for your "punishment" I don't think it was too harsh, but I would have at least confronted the player as to why they were stealing my costume via text or voice chat. If they kicked me out, I'd leave a note on one of their levels with a similarly civil message "Hey, I was just wondering why you decided to copy my outfit, and then you kicked me out of your pod... what's up with that?" That way he/she can choose to respond in kind.
Sorry to hear about your string of bad luck, hopefully you can make some changes to prevent this from occurring again.

You want someone to agree with you, and that's why you posted this.
You don't have to admit it, it's obvious.
You're hoping someone will jump in and validate your actions.
From my life experience, I can assure you that no good ever was borne of vengeance.
Let it go.
If you want to seem mature, apologize and then sever all ties with this individual.
(I entered this world screaming and covered in someone else’s blood. I have no problem with going out the same way.)
Yeah, but It seems a bit odd to change your costume every time you play with a random. Though, I usually hardly ever create with randoms - and the beta vest helps stopping people from copying.

I doubt you can break someone's ps3 with an LBP item. Freeze the system up? Sure.
If you don't want your stuff stolen, don't wear it, or don't play with randoms. This should be obvious, and I don't understand why yet another thread needs to be created about this same issue.
