Thank you for making this. I totally agree. (no offense to anybody out there) But i have seen alot of repetition around here, especially in 'Head to the Pollz" i mean there are like ALOT of threads 'Who is your fave twilight character?' and "What outfit should i wear?' and also in the creative writing. There are alot of JB stories. (Not that i have a problem with any ) But i think that if you are going to do something like that, add a twist or something, if you know what i mean. Thanks again for creating this DL (if i may call you that)

Anyway, thanks a lot for posting this! I hope that some people will take your amazing thread into recognition.

Thanks, Ciara!

Sometimes my threads have been closed/deleted also. Sometimes there are small problems with them, and even though I might not agree, it's kind of a "go-with-the-flow" kind of thing. I'm not the expert on this site, so I'll have to trust the admins and mods on things like that no matter what

Yeah, I think I know what you were referring to, about 'taking' ideas ... it can get really irritating. But the funny thing is, whoever posts, they're usually aware of the previous thread ... we don't let originality slip past either ...

Huh .... we were just talking about quality-length threads ... and your post was large enough to become a thread itself! Rep! (LOL, I think this is like the ... 5th time I've given you rep over a great idea ... xD)
Courtesy threads will definitely NOT be leaving any time soon. Eventually someone will make one- although it might not be directly titled as courtesy.

I'm glad you know what I'm referring to! Most of the time it's obvious that they are aware of the previous thread, and especially if they have posted there before. I find it a little... I'm not sure what kind of word would really describe it.

Thanks again for posting!

I agree with the rep thing too, because I had a thread not a long time ago and there is a new thread with the same idea and people who didn't like the idea then suddenly love it now.

I totally understand. Doesn't it feel really awkward (especially if they had posted on your thread) and definitely, 100% hurtful. Sometimes it's hard watching that thread get popularity and the person who posted it get rewarded for taking your idea and making it into their own. It might be a little different, but they could have written about something else, right? LMK if I'm going the right way with this

Thanks, hp! (And yes, feel free to call me DL)

A twist is great! Sometimes adding more than just that bit that you want to add can turn it into one big and wonderful idea. That's happened to me sometimes. Maybe instead of "What outfit should I wear?" it could be "Which outfit would you wear to a hot day at the beach with no suntan lotion?" or something like that.

Yeah, I know what you mean. (Sorry this is off-topic) But on one of my clubs, the firsst rule is (its an alien believers club) No trashing aliens. If you don't believe then why did you click? and then like, a day later, some person posted. "Aliens aren't real so what is the point of this club?" i was like Sorry, i had to let that out

So yes, there is quite a bit of repetition around here, it's like a routine lol

Default Re: Originality of New threads going down?

Yes, I have seen this too...but I'm not complaining too harshly, because I think I have actually repeated an idea before. I hadn't seen the original, so I just posted it, but someone told me that they had seen it before...it made me really embarassed...

But one of the things I've noticed is that the ideas that get re-posted are the ones that are pretty good, or just ones that are most popular. Sometimes maybe people just really want the idea to happen? Not sure, just what I've noticed.

Great thread, rep! (:

That's okay, hp

That was really mean of that person, and I think that's a pretty fun club to be in! It sounds really interesting! I hope the person got reported.

Default Re: Originality of New threads going down?

DL- You have posted exactly what was needed. I think the "creativeness" of the threads has taken a major downfall. And, while these threads are still very helpful, and sometimes needed, it is simple suggustions... be nice, no rudeness, respect... I think having a more creative idea would get more feedback than a repeated one.

One member... well, two members actually, that have always seemed to come up with the helpful and original ides are Ave and DogLuver620. You two have always made excellent suggustions for the WI forum. [I don't mean to hurt others feelings with this- Everyone's ideas are great!]

[cannot give ya rep at this time.. ]

Great thread, rep! (:
Thanks, mcgymnast!

I have done that once too, I admit. Sometimes I see an original before I post it, so I close the thread down or ask for it to be deleted. It makes me embarrassed to- whenever I see a thread that someone just made about a subject and there is already an active thread about that, I post that there is already a thread on it because it's only fair to the original thread creator. Most people say, "Oh, I'm so sorry!" and actually mean it, but some just ignore it and I think they are just going for the rep or WI$. Not sure what their intention was, but I don't think it was a good one because if it was, they would have respected the original thread owner.
