oh and just a reminder. If by chance you do see someone posting a story you know was plagerized, please let the mods know. Either PM us here on the forum or send an email through the site because in this case, neither of us saw that. The numbnuts probably deleted it herself before she managed to get caught again.

I will definitely keep an eye out for anything suspicious.  I've never had that happen to me, but I can only how frustrating and heartbreaking it would be to have someone take your fan fic and claim it as their own.  I do make BSB graphics and I've had a couple of people try to pass my graphics as their own.  So, I can definitely understand the frustrations of plagiarism.  I honestly don't understand how people can do that.  The amount of effort this person took to continue posting this story over and over again, they could've been writing their own.  Seriously, it makes no sense.  LOL!

I hope none of you think we've forgotten about this! It's been relatively quiet lately but don't forget to keep your eyes open, and so will we. Teamwork! lol

I will tell you that the story was called Cheap Thrills and it was originally an Nysnc story called Somewhere in the Middle that this girl just changed the names and posted it as her own.

This is the link to the real story

http://archive.nsync-fiction.com/viewstory.php?sid=28

This girl also had another story on the site called The Walk which we deleted and now we're thinking she might be trying to repost it using another name so if anyone on here has read The Walk (It had a banner of Nick and Mandy Moore) and you think you are reading a very similiar story please let us know.

Her reasoning behind plagerizing was that her friend told her to post it up.

Nice reason lol what a bonehead!

And yes I am calling her out on a public messageboard but if you are going to copy someone else's hard work you best be ready to face what happens if you arte caught!


joining in a bit late for this, but thats a really crappy story to begin with. no excuses but that story is just not so great. lol
