    Hello, fellow users.

    I was quite curious about the opinions on how they feel when somebody adds a piece of somebody's map to theirs, like using a piece from Person A's map to Person B's map, etc.

    I wanted to take a few pieces from another map on this site, but not sure about it.

    Regards, Cecil

    You should ask the person who created the map for permission.

    But, what if the person who made the map is banned or inactive for many years, etc.

    Regards, Cecil.

    In that case you can NOT use it.

    I would say it depends on exactly what the situation is. I know we're here in the weirdly specific hypotheticals forum, but let's have a concrete example rather than arguing about how exactly to split hairs.
