barther-
I'm sorry but I disagree with what you're saying.
1. the person is FROM our WI forum
2. they asked the SAME exact question on a yahoo thing

I'm wondering, is she your friend or something, because you seem to be getting VERY defensive barther

I really don't think this is fair to those who play fair.
Why can't you just disqualify the cheater?

Everybody is way willing to yell cheating, but no one has yet to show me exactly where the rules state that you can't DO research or ASK questions outside of WI. Seriously, if I'm having trouble reading between the lines, why are we so ready to condemn what is probably a child for having the same trouble?

* You may NOT ask any member of the WI staff for the answer or you will be disqualified
* You may only vote one time
* You may only select one answer
* You may NOT change your vote after it has been cast
* You cannot view current results of this poll so as not to sway the voting
* No cheating is allowed - on WI, as in real life, cheaters will ALWAYS be disqualified, and it ruins it for everyone.
* Discussion on which answer you voted for will NOT be allowed - you will be disqualified
* Discussion of any kind on your research, findings, etc, will result in a disqualification of your entry in the contest.
* The poll will close at midnight KT on Nov 15 and the winners will be announced on Nov 16th, 2007.

I don't have a problem with, from now on, it being stated that you can do no research, you either have to know the answer or just guess, but it should be in the rules. Most contests let you do whatever research you need to as long as you stay within the rest of the guidelines for the contest. I just can't find anywhere in the guidelines that state you can't ask anybody else outside of this forum that you want. It seriously does need clarifying. Some poor little kid is now being slandered as a cheater when very possibly they just read the rules exactly as they are, and if so, they didn't cheat! This is a VERY legitimate question.

I agree, I don't see any stricture agains t RESEARCH. However, I think an unstated line was crossed when the cheater moved from trying to find the answer on his/her own, to trying to have someone GIVE him/her the answer, by asking a bald question.

It's like writing a research paper - how heavily can you cite a source before your work becomes plagarism? I think it would be fine to look in all the places you can think of to find the answer, but to baldly ask for the information.. that goes too far.

If someone actually DID cheat(which, according to the rules, they didn't), then yes, it should probably just be the cheater disqualified. But I'm thinking that the rules were unclear enough to let it continue.

If this was school and any of it actually meant anything, then yes, it would be wrong. But since the line states you cannot ask any WI staff, it kinda leaves it open that maybe it's okay to ask anyone else you'd like. Nothing was copied, just a question asked.

---------- barthur added 2 Minutes and 22 Seconds later ----------

Main thing is folks, that I'm thinking some poor little kid deserves an apology. This is an entire thread on how despicable a cheater they are, yet me, an adult, can find no where that they cheated. What if it was you? What if you "misinterpreted" the rules, or like me, just couldn't find it, and all of the sudden, on a forum you frequent, you are the main topic of discussion. How would that feel?
