Copying disgusts me...

Copying disgusts me...
 

People who are to lazy or stupid to do it well/properly disgust me even more. I have on numerous occasions seen board games obviously copied from websites and presented here as original work. Why has this been obvious to me? It has been soooooo obvious because the icons and web addresses from the pilfered websites are left on the sheet.

Some people are just too stupid and lazy to be teachers.

Click the report button then and fill in the link. No need to write forum posts. Big smile
But please note that in some cases the uploader uses the board game as a template and fills in his own text.
Some boards  are templates and the original board creator allows to use his boards as a blank template...

As Moravc pointed out, many board game templates are available, even on this site many teachers have been so generous as to provide free templates and quite a few teachers who upload work here have their own websites where they upload the same work they īve uploaded here... therefore not every boardgame you find "out there" is necessarily proof that someone here copied...
(this is not to justify any of those who do try to present copied work as their own, of course...)

Letting someone using a free template does not make them lazy or stupid.

Hello  psd4fan!

1 st - I would like to say that insulting others is rude (you are judging many based on a few examples....) and I resent that;Dead

2nd - You could address your colleagues on the forum, expoosing your ideas or even complaining without using so strong words!Thumbs Down

3rd - I suppose I am one of those stupid and lazy teacher - you referred to - because I DO USE TEMPLATES FROM THIS WEBSITE FROM GENEROUS PEOPLE WHO KINDLY OFFER THEM to us .... but do mention the name of the creator and say thank you.Geek


4th - Being part of a community means YOU DO HAVE TO RESPECT OTHERS. No wonder the world is upside down.....Wacko

Rest my case.

I DISLIKE INSULTS!! HOW CAN YOU BE SO RUDE, YOU DONīT EVEN KNOW THESE TEACHERS?

AS POINTED OUT, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF FREE TEMPLATES THAT CAN BE USED.
 
ANYWAY, HAVE A GOOD WEEK.

Hmmmm,

if you are so aggressive and rude on the forum, could you explain to us why is your ws
http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=183062#thetop
identical with this one http://esl.about.com/library/vocabulary/blwordgroups_health.htm
and
http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=606157#thetop (your newest ws) is identical with
http://www.buymeatoy.com/category-s/678.htm

http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=592584#thetop is identical with
http://www.buymeatoy.com/category-s/678.htm

Is this the way you want to show us how clever you are because you have been cheating since you have became a member or what?

I īll be awaiting your explanation, meanwhile I am going to report your copied wss and let moderators to decide who is too stupid and lazy.
