Hello, I will try not to name the kid, but currently, there is an user on LBP that keeps copying and publishing horrible levels, this is an problem for me because this user is spamming away all the great new content, it has got to the point now where I feel like I need to start abusing but this is not of my nature to do so.
I feel that this needs to be delt with one way or an other as it is sadly destroying my experience on LBP, and makes me worry that the content I make, will also be abused in such ways.
Please, for the love of everything =( This user needs to go. I'm sure you all know who I'm talking about if you go look at the Community Levels. His name starts with an L and ends with an 10.

I'm pretty sure that what he is doing is on a game breaking level, because any of the new content, is being pushed constantly, by old content. So if you look at it, in an developers point of view, this would be a game breaking element, and so it is actually breaking rules.
It was not the developers intentions for this to happen, the point of the Share tool is to edit and change, not copy and paste, this is a flaw that they must inspect, and solve, how many more people will go with the flow and start to copy what the said user is doing, to get hearts and views? The game breaking element becomes more of an issue then, and believe me, I know some people are defiantly attempting to do what this user in question is doing.
And so anything is considered breaking rules, when game breaking is in question.

I believe he looks for copy enabled games, meaning he can copy the level with out going into it basically, then he can upload it under his own name. This guy does it about 50 times a day. I'm not 100% sure how the method works, but I guess thats how its done.

I don't know how they would do it but maybe MM should change it so that when a level is copied it shows two creater names eg;

Just a thought at least then people couldn't take credit for levels they didn't make and the original could be found.

Just don't make your level copy-enabled?
Or is there something I'm missing, it's been a while since I've been on (ironically I've finally found some inspiration)?

Ehhhh.... I suppose.
It was just a suggestion aimed at those who's planets are full of levels that are clearly copied yet still try and take credit for them.
