Clockwise, Hawnte, Medical - Site/Forum Rip
6 December 2011, 1:03 pm

Last night, it was brought to My attention by a staff member of the dream we reside in that our site and forum had been completely ripped, word for word, by another player in the same dream.

I had to sign up/create and account on their forum to see it and lo and behold, it was true!

Everything, down to our board names and descriptions, was copied. They even went so far as to half-rip our current plot about our den flooding.

This isn't the first time this has happened, but it doesn't make it any less annoying.

After doing some research, the pack and I did figure out that this person was a member of our pack who'd gone inactive.

At first, I wasn't going to post this. But after some thinking, even if they do take it down (which if they don't it will be reported to proboards and we'll go from there) there is no real way to keep 100% tabs on whether or not they re-use the copy/pasted information.

At least this way, people can be aware of this person's habits and maybe, if they do use it again somewhere else, can notify Me so that it can be reported again.

ANYWAYS!

Here is our site: http://www.fengaripack.proboards.com

And our forum: http://www.fengari.proboards.com

And here are screenshots of their forum, which is quite obviously a copy/paste deal.

As you can see, some was taken from the webs.com side, but the majority was from our forum.

The person is 'Clockwise' on FAM and as far as I remember, 'Fie' here on FAZ. (Not sure if the FAZ name is spelt right).

This is posted specifically as a warning, because if someone has no conscience about taking our work, they probably won't think twice about doing it to somebody else.

EDIT; It appears as though this is a new forum they're moving to, and they have been using our information for god only knows how long. Nice >:
