Hello Everyone,

 

So, if you are an IF regular you probably know the recent string of events we've had going on. If you haven't allow me to list them and bring you up to date.

 


Fiasco Number ONE::

A few months ago we had the whole Mature Content Fiasco, in case you don't know about it, check below -

 

::Mature Content Fiasco::

 

Trigger:

Banning 'Pandora's Box' by Munchy.

 

Incident:

Let's see long story short, despite IF Guidelines stating that you must be above 16 years of age to join we apparently have not only teenyboppers but 9 year old forum regulars, which is why mature content as it pertains to the sexual nature has been considered taboo. The writer's who write such have had people go as far as call it 'soft p.o.r.n'.

 

Result:

Writer's leave IF open new blogs- yet most come back because they miss the forum.

 

Issue:

 

I don't know if I speak for any other author, but I personally feel this was an affront against authors not because they shut down a fic, but because they seemed to not care about whether not the authors were staying or leaving.

 

Fiasco Number TWO::


::Plagiarized Written Content Fiasco::

 

Trigger:

Ironically you can take names when it's a mature content thing but when you do it for someone who's actually stolen other people's work it's tantamount to bashing.

The irony.

Fine let us refer to our oh-so-original friend as 'X'

 

Incident:

Once again long story short, despite IF Guidelines stating that you cannot plagiarize, 'X' a prolific author here on IF, decided to not only steal work from fanfictions on other site's, but also did so from A FRIENDS ficlet HERE on IF and of course from a popular Mills and Boons author, all the while claiming it was her own work and that she would refuse to update without 30 pages of comments.

 

Result:

Writer's are scared to post original work on IF open as no stringent measures seem to have been taken, Writer's also lose the will to post (do not please give me any write because you want to write stuffing please, we all write because we want to write, but it's the encouragement that keeps up writing, that AND the will to tell the story).

 

Additionally, Reader's are left with a sour taste in their mouth and lose the will to comment to encourage writer's, with the thought ' who next?

 

Issue:

 

Well, I believe it's quite obvious. You spend all night writing a chapter and wake up to find it posted by someone else under their name. I believe in legal terms its called copyright infringement and the theft of intellectual property.  (Golly seems law school has it's upsides after all)

 

 

And now

 

 

Fiasco Number THREE::


::Plagiarized Content Fiasco::

 

Trigger:

Once again Munchy has had a siggy up for a while now, don't know if you've seen it, I believe within a few days the knockoff siggy was posted to comments and likes galore.

 

Incident:

Munchy's been very eloquent about it so I'm just going to add her link - http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=2918488

 

Result:

Siggy Makers are scared to post original work on IF open as no stringent measures seem to have been taken, they also lose the will to post. And no Munchy is not the only one 18Shabbo (and god knows how many others) has also been a victim of this wondrous talent for theft.

 

Issue:

 

Once again obvious. Copyright infringement and the theft of intellectual property. 

 

 

Now, having updated you all about this new trend to one up other's via stolen work, as well as the other issues I'm sure that are abound, I wonder if it's too much to ask for a conference to be set up where some of the victims, some popular writers, some regular readers and so on could directly interact with IF's head honcho on behalf of the rest of us.

 

It's the age of technology. Skype anyone?

 

I believe the issues are legit and need to be addressed and not via a third party. He needs to hear about what is going on directly from the people who are suffering because of it. Not via a third party, who may inadvertently water down the incident or even blow it up.

 

That said I would like to give major Kudo's to the moderators for this forum as they are wonderfully prompt and very nice to boot. But I still believe this needs to be addressed to a higher authority.

 

Much Love,

Nmyra

*EDITED*


IF DT's in regards to this situation thing - 

I am adding an excerpt - Not adding names in case someone has an issue but Kudos to the DT member who said this- for saying this.



I think you guys should make a post in Suggestions / Comments forum about a solution to Plagiarism.. we shud just get straight to the point and demand for a solution to this since the NO COPY doesnt work.. this doesnt happen with FFs only but sigs/VMs/written updates and posts on the forums being copied else where.. and maybe request the admin to make it a Global Announcement so the whole I-F can join in the discussion. We all should come together and raise our voices there.. it will def. get the attention of the admin.. maybe someone can make a post there regarding it... you guys have my full support since i am against plagiarism too.. I know there's a post abt this on the forum, we might come up with a solution for IPK forum but for I-F, only the admin can since he made the site and the features here.

I'm sure she'd appreciate it. At least this person says the credit goes to the creator!
