First of all, thanks for your feedback.
It's not that we don't care. We simply cannot take care of this problem (ie. "the manaialinks that sell 'stolen' content") ourselves because of the huge amount of community created content.
Specifying the Skin/3D authors, even if it's yourself, is one of the tool we want to standardize to help moderating such issues within the community.
You also have to keep in mind that many skins are based on someone else's 3D model, hence the need to always specify the authors ; and some Manialink sell other people's creations with their consent. We cannot handle every special case (eg. "it's my Manialink with my creations") so in the end we chose the rule to always put authors.
Now I realize that the rules are a bit unclear at the moment and that it may be a bit frustrating to have its ad refused. ManiaPub in TMF is a great experimentation platform for us to learn about community advertising ; so you will still find some small glitches like that in the user experience. Hopefully the experience will be smoother in Maniaplanet (for exampel we will precisely write all the rules)
