Hello, Opencart 2.0.0 was released on 1 oct, while there is no RTL support, or exact translation to arabic, I had developed and flipped the opencart theme, link : http://kwton.co/opencart_2.0.0_full_ara ... t-side.zip
yet there was an injection from 'OpencartArab' I had no clear view of the problem, other than wating for bugs to be resolved, but opencart 2.0.0 already hit the download page.

so the Qestion is, what is wrong with my work ? I have recevied the following email
"kwton,

Your Extension Opencart 2.0.0 Full arabic installation ready has been disabled for breaking OpenCart's terms and conditions!

You can find below the reasons why your extension might have been disabled:

- Fake: Advertising with no download.
- Copyrighted: Reposting of another developer's exact work.
- Corrupt: The downloaded file won't open.
- Malicious: Virus or other damaging code.
- Extension is extremely low quality or has many bugs.

Best Regards
OpenCart Team"

1) it is not fake.
2) I used opencart prev files to compare and add the translation.
3) It is not corrupt.
4) Malicious, I did mention where I added things, only the footer has a backlink, nothing more.
5) The only bugs it has the opencart 2.0.0 bugs.

so can you please help me resolve this ?

Did you use someone else's code or translation within your extension? That is the most common reason something will be reported and taken down. If you've used any portion of another extension or translation, then it's not your own work, and should not be posted.

I've took the official opencart RTL, and modified upon that, it is not like " copy paste", some changes ( many ) had to be added, and updated also.
I went through every file, change what it had to be changed, updating the English version with the arabic translation, yes sure I took some variables from the prev RTL version, could this be the case? what about my translation ?
EDIT:
I'm now re-translation, just to eliminate any suspicious.

Many extensions - commercial or not - do have backlinks.
And - how wonder - they are still alive and avaliable!
Is there anywhere the passus where it says that this is not allowed?!

Hello, after all the hard work, yet what did is being taken down ? Again? isn't that a kind of Spam ?

Or, maybe worse, does this moderator have the right to to take down extensions :
http://forum.opencart.com/memberlist.ph ... le&u=10223

I'm not allowed to competition or what?

At least I'm providing some work so others can continue from there, not to spend much time on re-doing things that already have been done, and I want to ask about the opencart license, do GNU license prohibited to take opensourced software, add and make changes to the software, then publish it as no others can re-use there added work ?

Forget all the troubles here, and add (or edit) your language (localized vars) to the crowdin project:

That's great! what we need now is RTL support for the theme, which I fixed, shouldn't the files be including in opencart ? since you only have 2 writings, LTR and RTL, there is nothing like Up to Down unless you speck ancient Egyptian.

Please read the GNU license carefully.

You use my translation .. not yours.

I do not allow you to use my translation.

Also if you use my translation in any other website, i will report you.

Please do not do that.

The problem is, I'v used some of the old translation files, yet that was not enough since there is a different, anyway I ended up editing out the old translation to make it diff from his, add to that what I had translate.

Anyway!, I'm going with crowdin project.

EDIT:
How you could even tell the different between translations ?
In Arabic, we use the exact same word with different pounce for totally different meanings.

The only reason that I'm putting what I did in the extension section is to help other, does the report button scares me? even more, I edited out your work!.

Prove that I'm still using your work!

so far so good, the translation will be partially completed first, Store front, then the admin panel
link : https://crowdin.com/project/opencart-translation-v2

and hopefully, I will contribute to github adding RTL support.
