IN MEMORY OF SILKE GRIECO, BEST KNOWN AS LADYBIRD, FROM GERMANY. HER WORKSHEETS STOLEN!!!
 
        My dear colleagues, do you remember the ex-member Silke Grieco, known as user "Ladybird", from Germany? She made wonderful contributions to the site, but unfortunately she left the site some months ago. Well, I hope you remember her, because she was a fair and honest contributor and moderator in this site.
        The really disgusting fact is that somebody is uploading some of Silke īs worksheets as her owns. I īm talking about  the theft of the two different versions of  Silke īs  "Talking Game" in todays contributions. A lot of members have downloaded these worksheets and have congratulated the thief too. Isn īt it unfair? Not even the old members have noticed the theft. Of course, I have reported the fact and I expect that the moderators and Victor can do what is fair.

Dear Encarna,

Ladybird IS Silke, or Topolina. Please see the forum for the respective announcements.

I have made a note in the moderator īs board about the fact that her wss were reported, even though that would probably not have been necessary. You guys are doing an amazing job back there ;o)

Have a good night everyone.

We know that you meant no harm, Encarna!

Regards

Oh my God! I must be the last one to Know. Well, I just can say sorry for the mistake and I īm really glad she īs back here. I never understood her leaving though I respected her decision, of course.

Hi!

I feel guilty because I asked her to reupload her wonderful games. But the moderators are voting them to stay, since no one can be acused of plagiarizing himself.

Encarna, I understand that your intention was only to protect Silke īs work and I īm sure she īll be happy to see that even if "ladybird" is not here anymore there are many members defending her work, even against herself. LOL

Have a nice day / evening.

Hugs

Zailda

 I missed the first thread and didn īt know that Silke was back.  I am really glad! Smile
It īs past 1 AM here and I was about to call it a day but I must go to the reported wss page to vote against the removal of her great games.
Heart Welcome back, Silke!

Hi folks!! :))
 
Thank you sooo much for the lovely feedback and for your support... Heart
 
But it īs my own mistake really, isn īt it? I should have written in the description of every printable which I īve uploaded anew so far that I īm the former user _ladybird_ who cancelled her account, but then created a new one! From now on I īll do that!!
 
It īs good that we can learn from our mistakes. Wink
 
Have a great day, everyone!! :))))

Yes it IS confusing when one has do doublecheck whether the worksheet is old and there is no point in downloading it or whether it is new. Might be a good idea to mention which worksheets are just re-appearing one after the other and which ones are new.
