What happened to the players that plagerized materials from other sites? Were they given warnings? Were their accounts terminated? Or am I not allowed to talk about it?

I noticed that the number of members keeps dropping which may or may not be a clue.

I'm still here and apparently a quiz I submitted last night included a bit of plagiarism...I've e-mailed sploofus back to find out just what I did, but obviously they have some sort of 'exemption' for first time offenders, etc. Anybody know anything more on this?

One of the major offenders has certainly disappeared , probably best not to name him though

I'd like to know too misfit1....but like Felix said I've noticed several people are gone from the site but that doesn't mean that there accounts were deleted or's like I've heard several people say...this just isn't fun anymore. I can understand the need for corrections and being able to read the actual quizzes....but.....

Vicky: I created more quizzes last month than I have ever done before and in the words of Bono "ever artist is a cannibal, every poet is a thief, they all steal for inspiration", this being a fact and that virtually every answer to virtually every question has been written down, we all must be plagarists. However it is the style in which we create our quizzes our questions that I find most enjoyment from and as you mentioned, the fun has also been less for me, in fact I have not yet created a quiz this month. The site has become very somber and serious, hopefully this is just all part of the transition.

I, myself, find the new system fantastic. After being a gold member for a year, I'd only till yesterday made five quizzes or so. Yesterday, using the new system, adn the new standards, I made ten quizzes, all of which seemd to get great feedback. I, myself, think the higher standards have made the site far more enjoyable.

As indicated in the quiz creation process: players that steal quizzes and content from other web sites will have their accounts terminated immediately without notification and without a refund.
