Stealing Code From Me?


#1

So, I've made a pretty popular rainbow mirror project. However, I'm seeing many people make the literal same exact project with the same exact code in it. Here's one I found a minute ago:


The "Anyone Online?" is the project I'm talking about.

The code is 100% the same. Are people stealing my code, or is it a well known concept? I doubt that the numbers and code would be the exact same though...

It happens to me too! I know how you feel, it's very annoying, ok this is weird but I like the project so they know I've seen their copy! But that may not be the best option :wink:


#3

It's a pretty used concept, but I would ask them to give credit if you feel like


#5

Wait. You are talking about the one that says "Anyone online?"


#6

I agree. I have seen a lot like that code. Maybe you should ask them if it was inspired by you or something :wink:


#7

What I meant is the numbers.

In the color spot, it's divided by 55.

In the width, it's divided by 22.

Is that normally used? I don't know! :thinking:


#8

Yes, that's the one! :smile:


#9

They should've added a credit

I see that Gilbert is the illuminati project too :3

I normally divide by 55. I think if the code was EXACTLY the same as yours, it was probably copied. But don't feel bad! It's a compliment that your code is so good that people use it. But people can compliment your code while giving credit.

Okay, I just saw that theirs wasn't the exact same, but it did use the same code. I'm not complaining about this, I'm wondering if this exact code is normally used.


#13

Is everything in the exact same placement?


#14

I would leave it be. Edit @Gilbert189


#15

Not in this one, but I have seen 3 others with the literal exact same detail, down to the placement.

Okay, that's weird... maybe an announcement that says "Hi. Please don't use my work without credit. Thanks, Gilberto :D"


#17

I personally wouldn't care about this kind of stuff. Take it as a compliment. It doesn't really help the anger, but it helps to know that someone liked it so much that they copied it.


#18

Nope, I'm not angry, I just wanted to know if I was using code that had always been used!


#19

Just to make sure, is it ok that I am using some of your code to meal my pixel pad? I will give credit, and I am editing the code a lot. :wink:


#20

Ok. I suppose that it is popular, as I would make the exact same code without looking inside the project fairly easily.


#21

Totally! I'm fine with it as long as I get recognition for it! :smile:
