Under “Model Info” in the 3DWH, a category, “Contributors,” had been added, but now seems to have disappeared.
Considering the character limit now on descriptions, I would think the “Contributors” list served two purposes:
1) Credit Warehousers for their models when a person who borrowed a model doesn’t note credit where it’s due (if the creator claimed credit, of course)
2) Afford a Warehouser more space for model description, and for giving credit to borrowed models where the original creator did not claim credit
I have always tried my best to list the models I’ve borrowed and their respective creators, and have even gone back and edited info when I discovered that I over-looked crediting someone, or that the wrong Warehouser was credited for something. Sure, I could just say, “thanks to all those whose models I borrowed,” but just as I like for people to know what I created, it’s only fair that viewers know what I didn’t create and who DID.
Why was the “Contributors” category removed? Were there just not enough people interested in who created what? Surely I am not the only one in the 3DWH who tries to do right by other Warehousers?
