Thumbs down Is it allowed?

Hi,

I was just wondering since trying to read all rules and stuff I could find.
Is it allowed to use all the graphics from Codemasters website and from the game it self on a website?

Since I want my kin's site to look and feel as much as possible like LOTRO it self.
I would like to be able to "steal" graphics from Codemasters site and from the game client, even use screen dumps from in-game..

I see allot of sites on the net that do this and I like much of the graphics on Codemasters site and in-game..

So, is that allowed or do I have to re-create stuff that just look like LOTRO graphics?

Unsure where to ask this but I felt this seemed like a good place, feel free to move my post if there is a better section for it.

And as usual we get no response at all in these forums from Codemasters or Turbine.

Why do they even have a forum when they don't care at all about what we enter here?
Just close it down and let all us paying customers fix our own problems and answer our own questions instead..

Try putting the post in the general-forum, better respons there. My first thought is "no, its not allowed" but I may be mistaken

Usually, they don't mind if you give proper credits.

Well I can understand both your points..

But this is the section for this question on this forum I think, therefore I posted it here.

And why have the section if none from Turbine/Codemasters look in it?

And I also would like an official OK to use the different pictures available since I was thinking of implementing them on my public website and I don't want to do hours of work on it just to get a "take that down" from them..

I am sure there used to be a fansite pack that you could download - I cant find it anywhere now though. I am sure what you need is out there somewhere...

I see a similar request has been made on the US forums too...

http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?&postid=2713461

No apparent official response yet tho.

I couldn't locate anything similar on Codemasters, however for Turbine: http://www.turbine.com/news/56
