I'm sure someof you have come across our argument on the forum. This guy took a tutorial on www.purephotoshop.com and put wdg on it then tried to use it in a contest. I'm sorry but just because something is in a tutorial does not mean you can tote it as your own work. It's unoriginal work and if choosin' would have caused that contest holder a great deal of greif later on.

The admins can't track all cases like this when so called designers submit works which are not original and even created by others. So we need help of all our members. Whenever you notice something like that, please, report it to the administration with the links to both the entry and the original work (if there is one).

Well he deleted it pretty damn quick after I posted and I didn't think to get a screenshot. If he still thinks that he did no wrong then he should have no problem showing the image again.

A better way to deal with this might have been to PM a mod/admin. That way no feelings are hurt if he isn't a ripper, and if he is all the evidence will remain.

i remember the image. not original yea, but not a ripper.

but there has been a lot of copying on this site. take that skorpion contest for example. hmmm.... yea.... now that was funny, about 4 ppl used the exact same scorpion, yet they are still around. no offense to anyone who used it, as some of you have made other designs that were nice.
