Discussion in 'Member Game Reviews' started by Grapes, Apr 5, 2012.
Why is this review posted on N4G under our site's name?
Grapes, you cannot do that, especially if it is plagiarized......
It is not plagiarized, I would never post someone's exact words into my post. I used to same format as he did. To be honest, this morning when i was writing it I was a bit tired and might have made it too close to that authors. I would never plagiarize. :/
I have a lot of respect for his article and would never want that.
Yeah, it has the same format, and in some cases uses almost identical stuff. Regardless of whether you meant to or not, it is still plagiarized. Structure and such are still covered under plagiarism. It basically looks like you were looking at his article, and just rearranged his words.
We would appreciate it if you took it off N4G, and if you still want it posted, place it as a user review.
I appreciate your enthusiasm, and im very happy that you are looking at ways to improve your writing, but you cannot post this to N4G as an official Dead Island review. Not to be mean, but only things written by our hired writers can be considered official.
Also, I understand that you were following his structure but this is indeed plagiarism. Plagiarism doesn't always imply direct copying.
This situation should have not been dealt with as a public discussion. Please keep that in mind for any future instances. Grapes you are free to write reviews, but in order for them to be official, and a direct representation of our site, you must be a GU writer.
Locking topic. I will delete in a day or two if Grapes chooses not to rewrite the review.
