Default For the Graphic makers of WI.



......The main reason for graphic shops is to give WI members a place on the inside to obtain a customized avatar, signature, etc. However, it seems that some graphic shops have changed. Some of them seem to be after how much of copying other graphic makers they can get away with. My graphic shop has been opened for 38 days today. In that short time, I have had more than my share of being copied and having to contact a mod. My friends (also shop owners), along with I, have felt the need to start looking at other shops, in part to make sure we are not being copied.
......I have tried copy-righting my shop's layout, examples, etc., and it seemed to work for awhile. However, when I took that copy-right down (due to theme change), almost instantly I found another thread with something too strangely similar to expect coincidence.

The message:
Please do not copy anther person, Graphic makers, regardless of how small or how irrelevant it seems to that person's shop. Being yourself is much more rewarding. (:

I put this quote in place of my copy-right in hope that it would effect my viewers in a different, inspiring-to-be-original way...

an original is always worth more than a copy.

....
if this approach has worked, it remains to be seen.

(thank you for reading. =])

I can imagine how frustrating it would be to work on coming up with something original and have someone else take your idea. I agree with you, that everyone should use their own creativity.

I agree, my graphics have never been copied, neither have I copied anything, but it's really terrible and it's such a shame seeing what a terrific community wi is.

Plagiarism is not allowed on WI. If your ideas are being copied, please flag, giving directions or links to both your original and the copy. The staff will deal with it.
