"she has many imitators"
We all know imitators on HS, they are everywhere. They are annoying, and hard to stop, so I decided I would make a topic on them. How to understand them, and how to stop them!
What is an Imitator?
An imitator is usually someone whom creates an account, with the name of another HSer, I have personal experience becuase I have had 4 of them. For example "MagmaPopp" was one, There are three types of imitators,
1-Mild, they just take your name and don't publish anything(my least favorite)
2-Medium-Use your name, and posts things, but dosent pretend to be you
3.Normal-Just pretend to be you.
If you still don't know, here's an example-
These are imitators of @MagmaPOP.
How do I know I have one?
You will most likely know right away, they will like your projects or remix, trying to get you to notice them, if they don't, someone will likely notify you, if none of that happens, just look up your name.
How do I stop them?
Just nicely ask them to stop, if they refuse, ask them again. Third time, threaten to e-mail THT, if they still refuse, e-mail THT
Or just ignore em'
Why do they do this?
Yep, usually this works, but they become infamous.
They're fame only lasts a day or two.
They want to use other people's hard work to they're advantage.
What if I am, or was one?
It okay, as long as you stopped, or are going to stop, we all feel a little jealous of other people sometimes!
I hope this topic helped you!
