Default Just ask before copying!

It really bugs me when people steal my ideas. Just blatantly take them. No warning, no asking, just taking them and saying they're their own ideas. Since I've joined WI, this has happened to me twice, and I've had enough.
What really gets at me is when people see your thread, like it, and make one just like it. And it's especially annoying when that person doesn't ask.
So please,
  • Don't copy peoples threads! They devote time and effort to them!
  • And if you do, ask! See how the original creator\poster feels about that.
Thanks for listening!

I always ask! I think that is someone creates a club you should also ask if you can kinda use the club theme in another way! Like if I have a store club for PANDAs And lets say JanuaryWebkinz Wants to do A store Club for Monkies they should ask me first because I came up with the idea!

I think that Members are kinda running out of things to say and are "taking" other ideas in my opinion......


Those are my 2cents on this little thing it really does not but me but it may some others.

Default Re: Just ask before copying!

Here is my opinion:I agree! At least ASK. I would make the exception if they didnt know about your thread or idea though. I really hate when people copy other people's posts and just change a copule of words. To me, That is wrong. At least ask. This goes for avatars and signatures too.

Really? Ha, that defeats the purpose of the thread itself.
I had no idea there was one.

Great reminder! Although, I admit, I've seen a few threads about this topic...

Anyhow, it's really true! Some people spend alot of time working out their ideas! It doesn't seem fair to me that someone would be daring to just flounce up and take their thread without even asking..

Of course, my exception would be if someone honestly had no clue that there was another thread about the same topic. I would be able to see how some subjects are quite similar and can be twisted and turned into many other types of similar threads.

Default Re: Just ask before copying!

But if it happened to both of you, you'd both want to voice your 'outrage' ...Copying avvies and signature pictures is one thing and sometimes it is not copying sometimes we just find the same picture in google. Other times, it is copying and should be reported to a mod.

Now, as far as copying threads, many times it is simply that people are concerned about the same thing or want to talk about the same thing. Technically, we are supposed to look around before starting a thread, but one feature we had that made it simpler has been removed when the google feature was put in. We used to have similar topic threads or threads with similar titles pop up when we started a new thread so that we knew we were 'copying' so to speak.
