Hello my friends!

I don īt understand... 2 of my worksheets have been reported today for not following the rules but what rules did I break??? I īve read the rules again today - since both were old contributions, one of them being re-uploaded yesterday, I thought that maybe the rules had changed since I last uploaded a document a few months ago - and I broke no rules... the cliparts are mine (I paid for most of them and on the CDs it says that I cannot use them for commercial purpose that īs it! I might have found a couple on google but I īm pretty sure they were in the public domain...)

please I īd like to know what īs wrong...

I actually don īt care about the points - I īve shared a lot of my worksheets/games on mediafire with you but it īs really hard to get a message saying that your worksheets have been reported and having no idea why...

please my friends, I īd like you to help me: what did I do wrong? are we no longer allowed to re-upload a document? is it for some other reason that my worksheets were reported?

if I did break the rules, I īm sorry!!!

thank you my friends!

Hi there dear Elodie,

I found the likes and dislikes worksheet still on the moderator īs page, one of the pictures is watermarked which is not allowed after the new rules and is why it was reported. Hope this helps and enjoy your weekend.

Hugs

Edit: now found the other one, too. Again one of the images is watermarked with an IC - for iclipart I presume.

Sorry for your bad experience, but in each case itīs only one image, so I hope it wonīt be too much trouble for you to change those images and reupload your wonderful worksheets to share with us.

Dearest Elodie!
So sorry to hear that two of your worksheets have been reported. Frankly speaking you īre one of the most generous and helpful people around . As Mariethe  and Julia have just mentioned the person who reported your ws  said that they are from IClipart.
 Keep up sharing your great work
Best regards
mabdel

i might be mistaken but as far as i know if the ws was old ..victor once said the to avoid iclipart witch hunting they were  not supposed to be reported because that was a problem between the company and the member

Does this mean we can upload the same wss twice and give then twice the air time?

Cunliffe: No, it means you can delete the older one (losing the old points) and then upload it again hoping that you īll get more points this time.
You might want to do this if you īve made improvements and it looks more attractive now or if it was originally uploaded say on a day when the server was down a lot.
In any case you have to delete the old one first.
