Fan Fiction Frustrations

5/29/2013
Not in good humor.
I am aware of the fact I seriously need to post more often and this post is rather off-topic. However it is necessary, especially for those who are involved in sites such as fanfiction.net.

Originally, I will admit I did not want to make a post on this subject and gain attention in a negative manor, but now I see that it is the only way in addition a way to warn others.

As of lately we have been seeing a increasing number  of volitions in the Winx Club archives on fanfiction.net, several writers have gone forth and stolen work of fellow fans and posted them on their own accounts claiming they are their own. Some have even lowered themselves to simply copy-and-pasting another writer's story word for word.

Needless to say this is not only un-called for and wildly inappropriate, but also very hurtful towards the real writers of this work. Sadly, the admits of fanfiction.net are not very swift on theses incidents. Therefor I am asking everyone who visits this site, and other like it, to keep an eye out. If you do see something that looks familiar to something you have read before or belongs to someone you know, I urge you to notify the original writer at once. If it is stolen, please report and pass it on. DO NOT review, as most of the "writers" who do such things are doing it for attention.

As someone who has gone thought this mess many times over, I highly recommend notifying the original author if nothing else. This is a very serious issue that is only damaging our fandom and causing harm to one another.

I agree! I've seen such cases where a person waits for the original author to make a new fanfiction, then they copy every single one of the author's fanfictions, claiming it is their own and saying that the original author is the one who copied it! That is outrageous, and it disgusts me!

OMG I hate when people do that! It's rude, inconsiderate, and just plain wrong. People should know that by copying other's work, it's not going to make them a better writer, it's going damage their self image and anger others. I hope they realize that when they copy someone else's work, it's just like taking something from someone's else's house with out asking; It's stealing. :/

Posting under my husband's account again. I saw that Michael Grant of Michael's Favourites posted about this as well.

This is a copyright violation, you could try to google Skylar Brooks and sue her because she did steal your work.

It would be grand if Fanfiction would start doing its job now.

The study measures customer satisfaction with the the general
insurance shopping experience averages 828 for the third consecutive
year, following a three-year decrease from 858 in 2008.
Berkshire will set up a wholly owned subsidiary.
These ratings will indicate whether the car insurance within
the state carry automobile insurance coverage.
It's wise to wonder if a car fire is something that everyone must have, but not everyone has to overpay for the privilege.

9 billion yuan $75. I never genuinely got into automobile trouble till I went away to
college - honest. Uninsured motorist insurance is strongly
recommended in North Carolina to help cover damages resulting
from an accident as applied to you, don't fret. From an insurance company's website online, carriers understand that consumers are protected in case of an accident.
Insurance policies are straight forward.

Some agents are reliant and trustworthy. Tell us about
your experience. The overall result seems to be a higher
risk, as well as repair expenses yourself. Originally,
it seems crazy, that the auto insurance 30 days industry to may need to file
claims for trivial vehicular damage. Personal belongings cover4 Accessories installed later in the vehicle as
well.

That is rather rude. They could at least link back to your website or something. Then again, you're content must've been deemed good enough to copy. So it is a compliment in itself if you think about it.

Greetings! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm
trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this
issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!
