Sorry but can some explain to me why my worksheet is considered a copy???


hi, everyone.
I am a new user of this site. I prepared some WSs and uploaded them. I read Victor ´s statements about creating one ´s own WSs before sending my works and I didn ´t think that the rules for copying include the pictures taken from the other sites. I have taken some pictures from a different website but I put my own sentences and own design. But it was considered as a stolen worksheet, so I deleted it immediately. So where can we find the pictures? and what is the rule for that? Please help me... thanks in advance...

I have taken this feedback as constructive criticism and to be fair I can see way some people would consider it “stolen”. Mine, just so happened to be one of the borderline cases and for whatever reasons the decision was made I feel compelled to acknowledge and accept it. I am just glad there are so many good people who are willing to put a lot of time and effort into managing this place. period.
