Hmmm, does this site's design look at all familiar?

http://www.commodoregames.com

Seems they've ripped one of my old designs for dosgames.com. :rolleyes: Owell they can have it ... I guess I should be somewhat flattered. :laugh:

Heh, wow... I didn't think I'd see the 2001 design ever again. ;) In any case, at least they aren't stealing your current design or your games/reveiws, so I would assume they're just paying tribute to your site rather than stealing. :)

you should send them an email and act all pissed off that they stole your layout, then at the end mention that it is a joke and that it is really cool that your design was so good that somebody actually wanted to plagerize it, and that it is totally ok for them to continue using it.

I wish you would have stuck with the old design, not that I'm pissed at these Jacknu-- Classic-gaming-lovers. Blue > Green/Grey.

Indeed. I emailed them about it ... I was very friendly, and said they could use the design if they wanted, but I would appreciate some credit on the site or a link or something. Haven't heard back yet :sleep:

I did find this rather interesting link on their msg board tho:

I can't really decide if its funny, cool, or just a bit sad ... :laugh:
