I found a website online with people requesting for my game to be pirated and modded. I signed up, then added my own post to the thread that read like this:
I am the creator of the game, The Kepler Colony: Evacuation. It took me over four years to create this game. If you really can’t afford the 2-3 dollar cost, then by all means, download a copied apk. Perhaps later, when you can afford it, you will pay for real. In the meantime, a good review would be very much appreciated.
Cheat modes… There is already a major money boost if you play as China. Playing as Switzerland also gives a big money boost after the asteroid is revealed to the public. In future updates I will add more game modes including a direct money cheat for any nation.
A few hours later I was as banned. Reason: Spam replies claiming to be dev of games.
I added the bold - I only ever posted one message. The irony of the banning from a dubious site is not lost on me either!
I’m not going to name the site as that would be advertising for them.
My question is, what should we do in a situation like this?
