    I've noticed that two Rggedu tutorials and now Pratik Naik Retouching were shared at cgpeers by someone under alias Putzip. I believe it was leaked from our forum cause these 3 tutorials werent published anywhere else yet and all three were shared by the same guy.

    Irony is CGP staffs are not fond of "photography" and want to stay focus on CG. Too often I see photography related group buy rejected there. So place like this is a heaven for us photographers, yet there are those can't seem to appreciate our community. Acts like above will make few not wanting to share or buy.

    Yes, and leaking is against the rules of this forum.

    We have a member here with the same nickname but I guess he has several accounts cause some of his shares at cgpeers werent 'liked' under that login

    Ah. They're being torrented and the file is zipped. Not much anyone can do about that.

    @profoto
    I noticed the same thing, it's very unlikely the tutorials are from another source.
    Especialy the two new RGGEDU tuts.

    RGG tuts on CGP predate their membership here - and putzip (uploader of TRS) didn't actually like the thread on this side.. so maybe purchased it themselves?

    I also noticed that some new uploads here are posted over gfxtra (gfxtra02) too.I was always thinking that adnim of that site actually buy many of new photoshop and photography tutorials,but I found out he just have good "source" and then re-up all stuff on Filenext,which need premium.

    maybe he traded it from someone else, used another login, hard to say, but the frequency of new RGGEDU tuts on CGP was always at least few months after the release, therefore my doubt.

    I already mention this about gfxtra.New RGGEDU tutorial from Earth Oliver was first posted as incomplete,since it was downloaded from cgpeers and after that complete version was reposted from here.I'll never share the stuff I got from here,because most of the stuff you guys posted here is exclusive.

    I really dont think we can stop such. He prob will create a new account and change his IP. Things that he shouldn't be able to get are exclusive group buy. I can't ban him... it's up to admin.

    *points down*

    Should probably get on that.

    EDIT: I honestly thought my 200th post would have been more meaningful than a ban suggestion. Oh well.
