    Plagiarism strikes again!

    I would be ****ing pissed. My fic that I started upon joining got plagiarized once. They tried to make it a bit more different than this kid did, but yeah...didn't fool me. And it's odd since my fic wasn't nearly as good as yours haha.

    I've seen plagiarism on even worse magnitudes, when a girl stole another's painting from deviantart and submitted it for a Scholastic competition. Let's just say, the results were... bad for her.
    Ah, devontart deviantart. That place is known to have a good number of cases of plagiarising on it. =/

    Ah well. We'll see what happens about it I suppose? Not much I can do besides wait anyway rn.

    Ok now go through the IPs of each of the 32,494 views on your fan fic, back-trace each one (crime tv show style), until you find one that is either registered in that name, or leading to a spot where people actually give their kids that name...

    That was a mean joke but I'll keep it for reference lmao. ;;
    Oh please. It'd take a lot more work than that! I don't even have access to IPs on ffnet which number views of 80,000+, and sppf is nearing 150,000 in itself! I'm going to have to enlist the help of every able writer out there to get this sorted. =p

    But in all seriousness I do hope the site goes and contacts the kid about it. It's basically one of the big sins in writing (pc has a perma-infraction for it for example, and one can argue that's too soft for it) and it can also be very upsetting for someone to find out their own hard work was stolen. I'm not too fussed here but that's only because of the circumstance and that this is the 4th/5th time of such an occurrence happening. I just rather the kid not do it again and understand why stealing = bad with stories (or for that matter art, etc).

    Well... I don't anticipate featuring any Kesha in the near future, I'll say that much. I suppose the title of $$$ is why; was kinda a lazy effort there. Ah well.

    I enjoy that song and the guitar solos a lot (recognized it having heard it on radio several times). I don't remember the dialogue at the end, ah well. XD
    I imagine the dialogue was maybe not on radio versions? It could have been cut for a radio version given the song is meant to lead into another, while by itself it maybe doesn't work quite as well. But then if it's not that easy to hear it's probably also not too easy to remember... especially compared to the other features of the song.

    This song is a great representation of Sonic music, it has the exact feeling you need from such a fast-paced and energetic game without being too overpowering so you lose concentration. From a non-gaming point of view it's a little repetitive, but what else would you expect from a level music track haha. Otherwise it's a great song and I especially love the subtle bass solos. Good choice!
    Nope! As said by Bay it was with someone else.

    Yeah, I suppose it is a good example of it. Thankfully sonic music has mostly been good over the years.

    It's also a better choice than the timer music. That tune when you're about to drown, that is... that'd just worry you to heck. @_@

    Silly at best might be too kind there. =p

    Don't think I'll choose another Doors song for a while now, that's a good bit covered.

    This was one of the first GnR songs I heard and I absolutely loved it - it's suuuuch a good song. It's one of the few songs that's been playing constantly for well-over 20 years now and yet never gets boring. Great choice!
    Yeah, I am a big fan of classics that still sound good even after you listen to them a lot. \o/
