reported worksheets
 
I don īt know what īs going on. From two hours or so I īm getting the information that my worksheets are reported to the moderator. Most of them are from series "something you didn īt know about ..." and "you know you are ...". They are connected with the culture of some countries and nations. Some of them are here quite a long time and have many positive comments. Everything was ok till now. I don īt know what īs going on. I made them using the information from the Net, but it was different information from different sources and I made the worksheets by myself. Everything seemed ok, till now. I don īt know what has changed. Did u have a similar problem here?

The problem is that nobody - me included - seems to have noticed so far that you had just compiled a lot of chunks of information from numerous websites to make all these wss... You īve never added any tasks, just borders, frames and clipart.

According to the rules of ESLP we are not allowed to upload copied texts at all - neither before the new rules were implemented on February 18, 2010, nor after that date!

I did not report your worksheets but I was looking at them yesterday and although they seem wonderful I was wondering what part of the worksheet you had created aside from the layout. You really need to credit your sources and add a second page of work of say reading comprehension to the work and then reupload. As your worksheets are they don īt seem to satisfy the rules of this website which states
"If your worksheet is just a reading text, it will only be accepted if the text is written by you."
Please don īt be too despondent about the situation.

But there are many such kind of activities that give you just some information, especially about things connected with culture. If you put, let say, word "England" to search for some worksheets, most of them look like that. Just the text with some facts without exercises.

If that īs the case, these wss should be reported and removed, too... Just MHO though!
 
BTW, I agree with David. ;))

Milka, I am sorry to hear that. I find your worksheets very interesting. I assume the moderators think the text is copied from various sources. Please comment on that... Did you copy the texts?

You may solve the problems by adding a few follow-up activities - reading comprehension, jumbled key words, gap fill... All these exercises can be finished within 5 minutes...
Milka, can you update the worksheets if they are in "Abuse reports section" ???
Did you try to add the follow up questions?

If the worksheets are just text which has been copied and pasted from the internet then they are always in danger of being reported and removed and indeed this often happens.

I had the same problem!! and I haven īt even told which ws it is that I have copied from somewhere else 3 years ago!!!!! It is the first time it happens to me and I am waiting for the moderators to let me know cos I don īt remember copying from a website! I īm not saying they are wrong.. I just need to know which ws it is so I can explain myself. how long do I have to wait for a reply? another 3 years??? sorry I dont mean to be rude.. but if you blame me for anything at least you need to show me the ws you have deleted so I can see the problem and in case it was my fault ( I īm really shock and as far as I know...I tend to do all the ws myself, although i might.. I repeat I might have taken some examples from other sites, although not in purpose as I am perfectly AWARE of the rules of this site and I have always followed them.. or that īs what I thought.. cos now i īm very confused) I īd make sure it doesnt happen again.
