Q: WTF I only had a picture of Hitler Pikachu in my File Share that I'd renamed something hilarious to share with my friends and I saw these other guys had pictures of women doing unnamable things to each other.

As a result, there is no subjectivity in assessing how files are treated. The issue of File Share abuse is a pretty serious one and we will continue to police it incredibly aggressively.

Simply renaming the content is not going to shift the onus of ownership from you to say, Shishka - the system is smarter than that.
Authors of uploaded modified content received the following prizes: By definition, this is downloading modified content and then putting it in your File Share for others to download.
In custom games, the Rating on a player's Service Record will be the icon that other players see. If you're a 44 in Ranked Team Slayer, you'll still be a 44 and your 44 will still display.
