How is everyone doing this lovely [insert time of day here] ?
I'm pretty sure everyone here knows how cool our A/S team is *coughs and pops collar* You see, we're so extremely cool that we're slowing down global warming If that aint cool, then I don't know what is!
SAVE THE POLAR BEARS BEBE!!!!!!
*Mitesh and Anu glare from afar*
OKAAAY! Soooo, before my two lovely lovely co-DT members decide to kick me off the team for stalling, let's get straight onto the point, shall we?
Anu, Mitesh and I have been thinking and thinking and literally busting our brain cells wondering how we can make A/S THE place to be. We were all wondering how we can make this forum the most peaceful, happy and (dont tell anyone else this) THE BEST FORUM ON ALL OF I-F!
All of you are more than welcome to drop any of us a PM with suggestions and concerns at any time btw!
& in order to achieve this, we want our A/Sians (that means you) to have an input in the rules we set forth. When it comes to the term "copied" "style" and "inspired" we all have different interpetations of what the definition is.
Because of this, when a problem arises.. it's usually a big deal because of all the different view points we have.
For example, if MemberA noticed a signature made by MemberB which was similar to theirs, they may think MemberB copied their work. MemberB may argue that he/she was 'INSPIRED' by MemberA's style. Now, for obvious reasons, the DT will get involved here. This is where the 'fun' (totally sarcastic here) begins. Both members will want justice and we want so badly to give them both what they deserve.. but the arguement will go both ways unless and until we have a group definition of what the terms 'copied, inspired, and style' means.
Therefore, Anu, Mitesh and I have decided as a team that we're going ask all of you what these terms mean. As a group, we will make up one solid definition of what each term means so that when problems do arise, we won't have to hate on each other for whatever the ultimate decision happens to be.
questions to think about:
How would you define and differentiate between 'copied work' and 'inspired work?'
What is style? Can 'style' be copied or inspired by?
We don't think that this has ever been done before, so this is going to be a MAJOR experiment for all of us. Let's make this successful A/Sians.. because if this works, we will be the founders of a happier I-F
