Re: A poem, written by me, not complete yet

Thank you. Everything up until the line "....Until my life is swallowed by unending fears." Is part of my poem, the rest is hers.

Re: A poem, written by me, not complete yet

Maybe she was inspired by your poem... or is it exactly the same? @Melbern

Re: A poem, written by me, not complete yet

Up until that line it's word for word exactly the same as mine.

Re: A poem, written by me, not complete yet

Hi @Melbern,

 

We are really sorry to hear this. We have sent you an email a couple of days ago so that we can address this together. Do you mind replying to that so we can address this for you?

I'm sorry I don't think I saw the email.

Re: A poem, written by me, not complete yet

@Melbern

i was inspired by your poem so I used some of the lines and then added on to it

Re: A poem, written by me, not complete yet

Hi @Jesssister2001,

 

The poem that @Melbern is very powerful and I can see how it inspiring this is for you. At the same time, we are also aware that it is super important to make sure that we acknowledge and identify every persons individual works as their own.

 

@Jesssister2001, do you mind editing your original post to remove @Melbern's words? We would really love to keep your own words/poems up here as I know this is a really important strategy for your wellbeing.

 

In future too, you can also reference an author by putting any quotes in quotation marks and listing the authors name and where people can find the original works. In this case however, let's go ahead and remove the poem from @Melbern.

 

Is that okay with you both?

I have always been ok with people using my poem when they ask and give me
proper credit, in this instance though, yes I would like it removed.
