Plagiarism, idea stealing

Plagiarism. You probably have seen the loading screen that says: "I made up a new word: Plagarism!" This is a joke, Since plagiarism means to steal someone's idea. Now where does hopscotch fit in? Well, there are two projects of mine that I know of have been plagiarized. One of them named "Broken project simulator" another is named "Dont tap the text". Both are plagiarized by the same person. This person I will not name, but I can tell you that it is the newest member of team @TACOCODE

Maybe they didn't know you had made them? Or maybe they were learning. (I didn't know they were in tacocode.)

Like NindroidGames said, it could be accidental. But it's good if you tell them that another game like it always exists and they might be copying :)

I see that. Have you told the person who is copying about this?

That would then make everyone know who it is, and that would be rude.

Maybe you should try to tell them about it as nice as possible, or just report the project

They do not want to reveal who it is. It's up to the person who did it to reveal the self is they want to.
