Group totally copied.
Join to comment
I'm admin in one group called the 225th Legion( http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/20056 )and there is one guy Daniel Boone (http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/67152) who totally copied (http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/20086) our group. It's really annoying when someone has made a new group and then someone comes and copies it.

Hi!I unfortunatly cant see your group(problems with link),but if this dude really is copying your group,then its serious issue and somebody must do something to avoid such situations.I thi˝k that the most effective punishment would be instant banning.Good luck with that anyway!

Let's see, Daniel copied your group name by 50%. Sure they have the word "Legion on it", but the "numeros"(225th and 409) are different.

I don't know what else to put here so I'll just leave up to the admins :)

Yeah it is. And the group we made was the first (not 100% sure) RPG group in the MOCpages.

omg don't you people have REAL problems?! "He totally copied my idea for a group" SO WHAT!

Seriously, I don't see an issue. All I see are children being petty and wasting the time of the mods for trivia.

The likes counter is fragged
there are thousands of pictures still not working

but no, some group has a similar name to mine - that's a big deal.

Get a grip people.

It's not the name what is the problem. It's everything else inside the group.

just ignore it. it isn't a big deal, and it certainly isn't something worth bringing to the attention of the moderators.

LB. and I and a few others designed the rules of the group and such. This Boone person was unhappy with the rules and went off and made another group with basically the same rules but made them more suitable for himself. He is now trying to invite all the members from the ORIGINAL group to come to his one.

See what we mean?

I saw what you meant originally, not understanding your "complaint" wasn't my "issue".

It has been pointed out REPEATEDLY that Sean, Chris and co have no power over groups. Tattling to them about issues in your groups is pointless as they can't fight your battles for you.

It might seem a big deal to you, but as someone who is thoroughly bored with all these little petty squabbles, I assure you it is NOT a big deal to anyone else.

So for the LAST TIME, no one in THIS GROUP can deal with THIS ISSUE.

So stop asking.

Yeah, Eli and Julius you guys should stop, If you know E.B. copied a group on Flickr, And "Edited" the rules and everything. So why are you complaining when somebody copies your group when you copied someone else's group? There's a moral to this.

ah, come on guy's let the guy make his own stuff. he just thinks the rules in the other group are a little strict. i some what agree with him. i want to make my squad, but u guy's say i have to have clone helmets that have to be phase one. and i don't have any. I believe he thinks i should be a little more easy. so what i think he did is made that group for those who want the rules easier.

Why are you doing this? Trying to start a fight acting like some bigshot.

my point was, the admins here have enough to deal with without this kind of stuff. Maybe my choice of language was a little harsh, but I can't express any plainer how inappropriate this forum is to complain about what is going on in other groups.

I joined this group, like many other older members, in the hopes we might actually be able to offer some wisdom based on our experience here. Not because we think we're special, but because we actually genuinely like to help people. But the more negativity I read in this group, the more I just want to start knocking heads together. And sadly this topic caught me in one of those head bashing moments.

I'm not "doing this" to be a big shot, I'm "doing this" to try and impress on other members that this group is not here to fight their battles for them.

Two similar groups with similar names and similar rules is a non-issue. And certainly one the admins will not be able to address. This isn't my opinion, it's a fact. Just read back through a few other conversations about issues in groups.

All I'm trying to do is stop people abusing this group. Because if we don't start using it for what it is actually for - it might get closed down and then what will we do?

Heh, I highly doubt the group will get closed down for petty stuff like this, but I do think there's some legitimacy in what your saying. The Admins (especially Sean) do control the website, so it's probably in their power to deal with this little problem, but they're obviously not going to. My logic behind this is: if they can band your account, they can probably remove a group too, just a thought. But, yes, this is not something they're going to do anything about, so fellas' I wouldn't keep going on about it.
