There is clearly a section that's been cut and pasted from my work.

Original work is here:
(Note date/time of the original post.)

boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=928114&topic=28083042

Some credit would be nice.

Terribly sorry but cheats are considered as FACTS under a game and therefore is not protected by copyright. The only time plagorism occurs is if someone were to steal your ORIGINAL METHOD to complete the game or ideas. Since the cheat is a programming error caused by someone who works there, it isn't covered by so.

BTW: Shame on you for not using gfaqs9.

Well when someone does an exact cut and paste of what I wrote, then it is plagurism.

And it's concidered good manners to give credit to someone that discovers something first.

That it's included in the code doesn't do any good until someone discovers how to use it.

Since there are no benifits gained on this site for submitting codes/cheats, no action will probably be taken. If it was an FAQ or File that grants a user the "Author" title, then he/she would be banned.

Sorry but there isn't much we can do.

Now if someone else cuts and pastes this into a submission form on our website then how in the world am I to know where it originally came from? Like Neo7 said, if it's original work such as FAQs or guides then I do research to make sure it wasn't plagiarized from someone else.

Out of respect I have added your name as a credit on the codes screen.

Thanks muchly, that's all I was hoping for. It's the first time that anything that I found out and posted really got spread around to other places.

Even so...you'd have to get Sailor Bacon to post it on GFaqs offically anyways

Since GameFaqs won't accept this as c aheat entry for the FAQ/Cheat page, for god only know what reason, I'm going to nudge it.
