It's not even that, it's just some text.

There's so much wrong with your post, Luiji, I don't even know where to start. So I won't.

I guess it won't do anything on Linux either, yet ClamAV still screamed.
Good bye.

Yes, that would be because its its purpose in life. Every antivirus program * is designed to pick up upon the EICAR test file. The idea is you can't be sure that you have installed and run an antivirus until it picks up a virus. But if you don't happen to have a handy virus infecting your system...how do you know it works? Enter EICAR, a small text string that compliant virus scanners recognise as a virus. Thus you can place the EICAR test file on your system, and see if your scanner picks up on it, without having to risk putting an *actual* virus on your system.


* In theory, at least. its pretty standard, but there's probably a few that don't

On the front page you use the copyleft symbol next to the zLib license notice, however zLib isn't a copyleft license.
Good bye.

That's true - per the license, LÖVE is technically copyright the LOVE Development Team.

What symbol would you suggest replacing it with (if any)?

Unless it's in the public domain, it's always copyright.

Copyleft simply means any derivative must use the same license (like the GPL). The zlib license doesn't require that.

Shows how much I know about this subject. :crazy:

Point stands though: what to replace it with? A © with a slash through it? A heart? A Circuloid? A ©irculoid?

This is odd... I don't see any logo on the front page. Nor toplinks like on the forums, for that matter.
