reporting question
 

Hi everyone,

I have a question. What happens when in thee new contributions you spot a worksheet that you just KNOW was taken from a book,, but can īt remember what the book was? I mean, I saw one which I just know I have seen in a book once, but i can īt for the life of me remember the book...How do I report this? Do I just let it go?

Unfortunately, you can īt report it unless you can provide a site or reference the moderators can use to confirm it is copied--this keeps thing sfair for the person being "judged".

Sorry, Douglas, your answer is not exactly right.

viccxx - You can report it as "scanned". Some of the moderators will recognize the book for sure and will provide the others with the information. So don īt worry, if you are sure about it, just report it.

is it the whole ws ( from A to Z ) which has been copied or just part of it ( for example the text ) and rearranged with some more exercises etc..?
In that last case it should be accepted according to the rules , shouldn īt it  ? well just my guess . Quote :

no the worksheet appeares to be wholly scanned. I recognise the style of the pictures in it and I think it is an old Longman book...I have been checking all my books since morning as I don īt want to falselly report something. I havent found it yet, as it could be very easily be a book i had borrowed or read in a library. If I am one thing, that is tenacious. I want to be sure beyond a shadow of a doupt.

I have to again disagree with ikebana. The rules say you can use other websites or books, BUT not an ESL related ones.

You can use texts from other websites or books in your worksheets if you add your own exercises or activities (For example, reading comprehension questions, etc). Please don īt take texts from other ESL websites or books, it would be unfair.

I have to agree with Douglas and Garfield: reporting without providing a link or source and just relying on others to recognize the origin of the possible transgression doesn īt go down well with me. Shouldn īt we be innocent until proven guilty? Wacko

I think I will take MJ_Misa īs side... if there is a doubt why not reporting it since there is no real harm done.. if the member is innocent, his/her contribution will reappear the next day !!

īNo real harm done ī by unjust reporting? You īve probably missed the raging battles and flame wars caused by trigger-happy reporting members.

It has already been reported, since it is 99% certain it is scanned from a book.
