As a Wikinut writer, I would ask my fellow Wikinut writers for their opinions on the
accusations of copy catting, which were published today in an article by Cn Writer.
Perhaps future unpleasantness can now be avoided.

Wikinut Writer Comments

My Article 'Computer Love' was published on Saturday 15th June.

Today I received unpleasant comments on my page from Wikinut writer
Cn Writer..

I have been left in the unfortunate position of having to write this page, as Cn Writer, has accused me of copying 'her' format.

I feel it necessary that I publicly respond to this, as the comments that have been placed on my page will have been read by wikinut members, and indeed, anyone on the internet who reads Wikinut Articles.

The comments left by Cn Writer are as follows:
try to be a little more nice in your criticisms...every one is doing their best including you...I think

My Response

Predators? Internet Groomers? are you serious??? you think anyone should be nice about these things??

at least you copy my format so our relationship has gained you some gummy points


My Response

We all work to the same formatting and make the best of the editing tools we have on wikinut, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't recall you writing a cyberspace article, so again perhaps you should think about what your saying.
Mariah


I invite anyone, who may wish, to view these comments on the article itself.
An extremely unpleasant, unjustified and disrespectful way to act towards a fellow
member.

Who's Formatting?


GuBy Sam Wormleighton|Wikinut>ides>Using Wikinut>Using The Editor

Advanced formatting with the Wikinut editor.

If you're already skilled with the Wikinut editor you might be ready to try some of the advanced options - Lists, Fixed format blocks, and Embedded youtube videos.

The Editing we all follow when we are ready is it not?

So my question to all the writers on Wikinut would be, does anyone feel that I am
'copy catting' in making full use of the editing tools available to us in my articles?

Published Article By Cn Writer Today, 16th June

Following my response to Cn Writer's comments on my Computer Love Article, this writer published..
... The Watchers Are Always With Us...Guiding and Assisting in Many Ways. The Copy Cats too...

Text from this article reads

We see it each and every day
Even here on wikinut
The ones who their pettiness
Cannot control


Without knowledge of any caring
Strip away to the bone
Those whose loving is paramount


Copycats in every way
Using others format
Star pages to gain for themselves
Never thanking those who showed them
Of this way to go


There is further an image uploaded to this copy cat section,
which has b]no compatibility with the subject text she incorporates
below the image.
Rather distasteful image for a female writer to have included, given
she is referring to copy catting by another female wikinut member
Reflective of intent to demean

I Thank Those Who Have Earned My Gratitude

As incorporated in Cn Writer's copy cat text....
'Never thanking those who showed them'

The Member, Writer, and friend who 'showed' me was Songbird/Bev, a lady who indeed helps others on Wikinut, and deserves due credit accordingly.

I very publicly thanked Songbird, by writing a page to acknowledge her support
'This One Is For Songbird With Thanks'


I owe you no gratitude whatsoever Cn Writer

My Ideas..

Anyone reading this who may be familiar with my articles and writing style, will not need me to confirm that my ideas and writing style, could not be further removed from that of Cn Writer.

Perhaps this action has derived from a resentment towards others, as they develop their own individual writing styles and ideas, perhaps Cn Writer would prefer it if no other Wikinut writer was awarded a Star on their own merit.

So Cn Writer, I would be obliged if you would do the following if you choose to leave comments on my page, if you can't say something nice, then please don't sayanything at all!

Yeah I know that kind of thing can happen Mark, but that's not the case here.
This was a conscious attempt to discredit and defile another writer, totally unjustified accusations.

Actually, the person who accuses of copy catting in fact did the same as you are talking about Mark, an adaption of my article
'We Got A Whole Lot Going On' fair enough, no big issue.
but to then falsely accuse another writer of this when it's not the case is just a personal attack.

Good morning Mariah... the format you use is indeed the one all us Wikinut writers are urged to use by Wikinut-- and with the talent of each individuals writing is in fact that magic key to a Wikinut star page......

As writers we develop our concepts and ideas in splendid isolation from others. But recounting them often creates similarity. Our Holy Books are good examples of how several people took it upon themselves to recount the same stories. There are similarities, but then, if there is only ONE story to recount there have to be. Rest peacefully in the knowledge that your own style of writing will be appreciated by others.

Mariah, just don't pay attention to Cn Writer, I love to worry her and she came charging at me like an angry bull on Facebook to belittle and condemn me. I just did what I had to do and moved on.
Well Mike sang that for the Paparazzi who tormented him and all depicted in that short film.
CN (Sin) as I call her is too rhetorical in her formating although her pictures are great. I mean this. I would have loved to have seen other formats coming from her rather than just one.
I am a rhymer who loves writing prose with poetry and started the trend out here on Wikinut before walking out on 3rd February 2012.
None the less, a writer is inspired by others and innovation on the technique is the key for it.
Never copy the content or the format. She does freeflow which is quite common.

I have also posted this on my page to address your further comment.
What a very twisted unpleasant way to behave on a community site.
Your intent is transparent and unwelcome.
It is known now that you posted the copy cat comment on my page, and then wrote the article,
you now attempt to dissociate yourself from your actions by being further insulting.
It is also clear that your motivation is resentment, wikinut formatting and star ratings, are in your mind, for your only, so you desperately write comments and articles to take the credit away from the writer, and apply very much undue credit to yourself.
You wanted attention, perhaps by your actions you have drawn more attention to yourself than you anticipated.
It is pitiful, but you also have to be stopped from ruining the site for others.
Try to incorporate some respect for others, and more importantly, respect for yourself, and let this be an end to this unnecessary unpleasantness.
Mariah

My sentiments exactly Stella
I have redressed this situation because I don't want this unpleasantness to continue, had I not, it may well have.
No one should have to feel uncomfortable with this type of unpleasantness being applied, nor accept the vile image that was incorporated in this article.
Like yourself my friend, and many others, I want to enjoy and appreciate interaction with good and loving people on the site.
God Bless

The world at large is a harsh and sometimes dangerous place dear Mariah .... For our part , we can add to the mix and cause pain and trouble , or we can choose to act kindly , but wisely , and bring harmony into each situation . If we choose the latter ...then everything settles amicably with no long term damage . I pray that this will be the case here.
God bless you today my friend .

This is far from the first time that we have seen a dispute between writers aired so publicly, but I do hope that this article brings it to a close. I must admit, even I resented the implication that certain writers on Wikinut 'copycat' a format that cnwriter implies as her own, which is ridiculous, and extremely insulting to all us fellow writers..
Bad feeling may increase the views for for all the wrong reasons, and it does weaken the site and lessens its credibility.

I certainly understand and appreciate why you felt the need to address this particular issue Mariah, and I only hope it helps restore the confidence of any new writers who publish on this site.
As you stated in your article, we all use the same tools supplied on Wikinut, as we strive to improve our writing ability and style to achieve Star merit recognition. It does not and never can 'belong' to one person alone.

Bless you for the mention my friend, but I seek no open acknowledgement of any help I give to fellow members here..As far as I am concerned, we are a family unit who support each other and the more experienced help and guide those who are just beginning to find their own feet on Wikinut.

Let us hope, this now brings this issue to a close.. Songbird B x

Thank You Bev, I very much appreciate the much needed input and advice from an experienced writer and long time member of wikinut.
I also appreciate that you have no wish to gain open acknowledgement for assisting others, sincere people never do, I write this again, as you have genuinely upheld what the true spirit of wikinut is about, good faith, encouragement, support and genuine friendship, adding the icing to the cake of our writing community. This was a very welcoming sentiment
for me when I joined wikinut, and I have no doubt, many other new members.
I hope your words here are
heeded, and as you say, we can return to enjoying what we are here to do, without such negativity.
Mariah

I appreciate where you come from Mariah. This controversy has no basis as we are advised to use the tools devised by the site. I am also using what I feel adds to the value of my posts. I have not tried video embedding yet as I feel that it is not necessary for my articles - may, in fact, be a distraction! I do get prompts from moderators at times to add that too.

I know how much effort we all put to get a good post published and to improve our output. We all have individual abilities, talents. No need to put any one down at all. I do hope this sad and hurting episode is well past. I remember your wholesome support, Mariah to many including Cn writer. We need to live in the "now": past is over and future not in our hands. Enjoy the moments and not punish ourselves when we know we acted as per conscience - siva

How does one bless the ALLONE in this? Motivation is revealed giving us all away. The one rule I make an effort to practice unless an intentional ass urinates me off is to not say what does not need to be said. I may have failed at this. All of us who use these site admit we could not create a sufficient venue to feed the ego needs of our work we wold share wqith oth

Mariah, I do so agree with, Stella, Songbird, and Siva, I would love to see peace among friends,,,I am reminded of a poem I read many years ago...the unkind things we say today may never be unsaid and friendships that we fail to win, may never more be won, all we have is this moment...peace my friend

Thank you Shirley, believe me my friend, I did not want this either, but if I hadn't openly addressed it, I know this unpleasantness would have continued, at the hands of the person who chose to cause this disharmony. I myself, have done no more than to protect myself from vicious personal insult, whilst such things continue there can never be true peace.
I trust that this will have put an end to it.
Big Hugs

We all use the same tools, and when my life quietens down soon, I intend to master video embedding as you have, thanks to Bev.. I hope everyone can get along in the future, I have always founbd the writers on her very supportive, and I don't want it to change

Peace will only be disturbed by those who choose to be destructive in their ways Kingwell, and peace is sometimes restored in challenging the source of that disruption.
I too very much hope that peace will now be the theme
of our writing community.

Always better to publicly expose false accusations..then people can openly see for themselves the type of person who behaves in that manner.
