@mpcdesignI see you have mastered the art of copy + paste

@RobertQc , this user also copied a sentence or 2 that I wrote about Wi-Fi not being part of the SMS specification word for word and I think used it in a macro. This really isn't cool.  I know this may just be a community forum, but a shout out to everyone in community and that a reminder that if you're a student and you're writing a term paper, or if you're an author/reporter writing a book or article, copying peoples' sentences and words can get you in range of trouble including possibly be kicked out of school, losing a job, or even possible legal trouble.  This is something that shouldn't be done.


 

 

@computergeek541Bring your pitchfork. Sorry... but I might be outing myself here as I used to do a lot of searching on this forum when I try to solve an issue someone is having. Either to learn or get more info then I have. From time to time during that search I come across an exceptional amount of knowledge or things I did not know and piece together various word documents for common issues to help new comers and have felt their added knowledge are too good to be buried away on page 613 of the forum. Sometimes just a couple words, sometimes entire sentences, sometimes entire paragraphs. Let's be honest the people asking for help almost never search if they did their own research as they should they would have already found the answer to 999/1000 problems buried on an old thread regardless of who the author is.

 

Almost everything on this forum is someone else’s words- even if you didn't "copy" it you still read it last week and learned about it and reposted it. With how many times I edit, change and piece together information in my documents it would be ridiculous to breakdown my answers of which words came from me and which words came from others and which words were inspired by who. With many thanks I have a lot of really good info I have learned from (just to name a few) @will13am @Luddite @mimmo @srlawren @Martin @z10user4 @popping @ShawnC13 @Dunkman @SD08 @LEGO @stonechucker @NDesai @abTest and you, and many others.

@(Too many users mentioned. You can @mention only 15 user(s) in a post.)

 

The help that is originally mine I am more than happy if someone copies my words even without my knowing. Since the goal is to help. If I find out someone uses my solution well that’s just props to me and makes me smile I could help someone and my words were organized so well they would repost it.

 

Not only that in order to keep a tag working it needs to be selected each time from the drop down, not just copied from a word document or used with the quote feature. If I started tagging everyone from everything I have learned I would literally be tagging 1000's of times each month. will13am would log in, in the morning and see I quoted him 23 times last night.

 

Maybe to some I am a horrible person but almost everything I have here, is from someone else teaching me and based on the bravo’s I receive and never once a complaint I thought, and still think I am doing a good job regardless of where I picked up the content. I like to think of us collectedly as a team where we can build on each others knowledge.

As for mpcdesign and his exact copy of my thoughts made me look twice but I am not upset, I just thought lol. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and not think he was on a quick bravo hunt. Maybe he had the exact same thoughts as me and could not express it as well. But he could have had the same feeling as me. Although he could have quoted me and just said "+1" Smiley Tongue but at the end of the day yolo.

 

But maybe mimmo_L is right, maybe this thread should be in the lounge.

 


Lol @RobertQc what a wall of words as if you are a defendant.  As you say the problems are repeats and so should the suggestions.  There are instances where a past response is an outstanding 11 out of 10.  These solutions warrant repeating where appropriate.  Let your judgement decide whether the solution should be copied, linked or whatever.  This is just a community forum where people give and receive help.  Let's not make it into a big deal and judge each other like the court of law.  If the community has become that big of a deal for anyone, I would suggest a time out and a good reflection on where life is heading.  

 

As for this thread going into the lounge, no way!  This is an official Public Mobile announcement.  It is definitely a part of conducting business for Public Mobile.

This portion of the thread is so far off the original topic of the Official Public Mobile announcement there is no way it is linked to the business of Public Mobile.

@ShawnC13 no.  But, you could argue it's on-topic for the community.  It might be a bit meta but can we not discuss topics relevant to the community but not directly related to PM?

 EDIT

I did not create this thread. Someone moved my post and created an entire new topic. I did not want my response in the middle of a thread to start an entire new thread. I don't like being the OP here and I did not want to call this much attention to this.


I created this thread as this was the post that started the off topic discussion from the Official Announcement and this is a good topic for discussion and should have it's own thread so the announcement thread doesn't get clogged up with the discussion.

 

If you didn't want such a topic discussed the best method would have to been private message the member about your concern rather than quote and draw attention to it.

Well i thought this fits perfectly in the lounge; "Want to talk about your interests, hobbies, or anything that’s not related to phone-stuff? It’s all here." and not in the disscussion; "A general forum for phone related posts that don’t fit anywhere else."


I am not a mod. Do not send me private message with your personal info.

Re: Off Topic Portion- Top Contributors – October 2018

This community forum has taken on a third purpose.  It's the place to come to get help, offer help AND TO BE JUDGED EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.  Now we have members criticizing other members for plagiarism.  Come on people, where is this going to end?  Think George Bush's speech on being kindler and gentler.

Sure if you believe in those words.
