The POB Word of the Week Contest for OUTRAGEOUS is on! You still have time to enter your article for a chance at winning Proof of Brain! Hurry! The contest concludes at midnight Sunday!
@Calumam is the creator of the Word of the Week Contest and this week's entry. Every week he presents a new word and challenges the community to write articles about it. The articles submitted by the community get evaluated against a grading rubric @Calumam created.
We're all winners of this competition. Authors get increased exposure in the community and some extra voting rewards in the process.
I've spoken about this topic in my last article. Plagiarism is a form of fraud that devalues the author's content and the value of HIVE.
- Please provide references for work that is not your own. This includes text, as well as images.
- Indications of plagiarism are met with an immediate DV and should be followed by a comment explaining the reason for the DV.
- The reason for the DV should include the article we suspect is the source of your information.
- Please do not argue against accusations of plagiarism
- We're not here to judge you. We're here for great content, but we also have to protect the community.
- Let's talk about the problem and how it can be resolved and mitigated in the future. Quickly. Neither of us wants this to drag on.
Voting & Engaging
Everyone has the right to upvote or downvote as they choose. So someone could upvote your post by $40 just as likely as they can decide to remove that vote. More often than not, however, there is a reason behind it.
- If you receive a DV without reason, feel free to ask. If you don't like the answer, move on with your day. Some explanations will be kinder than others.
- Be courteous to each other. It goes a long way in how people will perceive and treat you.
- Downvotes, like upvotes, are a part of the system. Use them wisely.
Thank you to the following people listed below that are already participating in the contest. Please let me know if you have entered an article into the contest and don't see your name on the list:
