Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/89247/

Stolen with a capital S.  This kind of crap just pisses me off.

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

I coulda sworn this happened once before on Newgrounds, possibly with one of Andrew Kepple's cartoons.

Yeah, thieves suck.

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

Damn, that's just... crap. Why would someone steal a movie and then put it on newgrounds? Probably can't make his own flash movies :P

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

Wow, and some people in the reviews are praising it as a great movie, telling him to make sequels

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

Saddest of all is how the thief appears to be getting away with it. The reason why nobody seems to recognize the movie as Dwedit's work is because it's not one of his better-known movies. I'm sure if the thief ripped off Suzukisan or JamezBond, more people would call him out.

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

We should get the thief!
We have to make a fist and reply on the movie that it's ripped off!


This is troublesome... WHAAT?! THAT'S MY LINE!!!

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

He didn't even finish dragonquest bob, he just stayed with the unfinished movie.

Isn't there a report function on Newgrounds?

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

If everyone just makes a review telling that he stole it, there will be a moderator or something that'll notice right?

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

Not for a fairly long while. Newgrounds is a huge site, with over 200,000 movies.

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

There should be a report button for all flashes there, you'd be surprised at what I've seen stolen blatantly from other pages and only removed much later.

Still not removed yet.. :(

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

I think the problem is that when you report flashes they cannot be viewed temporarily. So some idiots would just report like every flash they see.

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

I gave it an 0... overall
If everyone did the same they'll have to notice it. Even if it's after some time....

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

Double Dollar I still doubt that they would notice. The only way to get it off there would be to send a letter to an admin. I'm not sure who but even then it would take days if not months. That damn bastard.

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

Yeah, a report function on newgrounds would just be abused repeatedly.  It might be different if the function was for members only, since then abuse could result in a ban.  But unrestricted use of a report function would just lead to chaos.

Re: Let's hear it for Flash Thieves!

Well's here's what NG has to say in it's Review Guidelines (which very few actually read) about stoeln flashes:
If you believe an entry is stolen, do not comment about it in your review. If you are wrong, you may convince other users that the entry is stolen and you may cause a legitimate entry to receive an unfairly low score, or have the whistle blown on it! Use the whistle option, if available, to flag the entry as stolen when you believe that is the case. If there is no whistle option available (the entry is no longer under judgment) contact (http://www.newgrounds.com/contact.html) Wade with as many details as you can about the stolen Flash and where you think it was stolen from.
