Default My life's work, taken from me... (R3?)

I recently stumbled upon a pretty trying truth: supersilver, a frequent poster on the Hamumu.com forums has been using my written work as a basis for his R3 story online.

I finished writing this story in early March of 2003, and had started it maybe 5 years prior to that. It did not have the name "R3" at that time, but a different one. I am afraid to give away the name as he may somehow use Google to find it, and take more of my story.

All I ask is that supersilver keeps this from Hamumu.com from now on. No more signature links, posts, story entries, etc. Frankly, I just don't like having this plaigerism rubbed in my face.

I don't mind if he advertises elsewhere, but not here. I simply won't stand for it.

I did mention that the story had the name "Space" in it, but I'm not sure I put much of it online anyway.

Thanks for reading.

I think I found the link: http://www.geocities.com/mitch.weave...ersinSpace.zip

Wow! My old Geocities site, hahahahhaha. Thankfully I didn't store much of the story there. I think my old Tripod or Angelfire website had the majority of the text stored there, but I just checked and they have been completely removed.

Perhaps that is where supersilver found it, though. Who knows when he got my story?

I have proof, you dont. google doesnt lie.

Maybe you should take a look at that file that Mr. Onion posted, supersilver.

It's part of the story, and was created in 2003. Yeah. Stings, doesn't it?

Sorry, supersilver, but... I kinda have to side with Chinook, as one of you clutters up TM with stuff you have to pay for and the other doesn't. Understand that I mean no offense, as you are, otherwise, a valuable member of this community. Though I wouldn't mind if you kept a link around in your signature.

oh, isnt it weird that that it ends at the most recent part I made? Let's face it, you took that, put it in a notepad file, called it feathers in space and claimed it as your own. i started it 8 (im 13 now) years ago. if anything, he's setaling from me. so, let's forget this lie that you made it ever happened, ok?

Let's face it, i have proof, you dont. and your site thing isnt even open! you just put it up there today.

Thanks, Sillyman. See? This is the kind of recognition I desire. I don't necessarily need to get rich off of my work, but I'd really rather that I didn't have it flaunted in front of me on my favorite forum.

If supersilver just keeps "his" story to his website, and to other forums, we can leave it at that.

A clear desperate attempt at trying to get me to reveal the next part of the story. So he can either:

a.) Take it and add it to his story. Perhaps he didn't actually get the full text when he originally stole it.

b.) Change his story subtly and say "See?! I didn't steal chinook's life work!"

I will give you no such satisfaction.

Thank you for removing the link from your signature. All I ask now is that you no longer post any of the R3 stories or links on Hamumu.com, and we will not have to worry about this anymore.

Thanks for understanding, supersilver. Hope to see you in chat soon!

How do you explain the fact that the text file is timestamped as being last modified 5 years ago, then?

Wouldn't be that unbelievable, actually; I started planning out a little game series when I was 4, and I'm still sort of planning out stuff (and perhaps I will actually create it some day :P).

Was that one of those memories that stuck with you? I can vaguely remember getting stung by bees when I was 5 or so, and I remember the atrocities of first grade when I was 7, but 4? Nothing...

Shoot! Off-topic...

But yeah, Supersilver needs to think long and hard about what he's going to do, else he and his parents are going to face deep crud, it seems...

Not necessarily with me, but with others -o_-o And I still have the scribbles of random video game enemies I used to draw back then.

"Sunday, March 02, 2003, 5:50:28 PM"

The only problem here is that it's very easy to fake dates like that.
