Would ppl have known how to do it?
would ppl have found it?
would ppl enter the bulk translation?
would ppl know how to use the bulk translation that way?
would ppl use google sheets for that?
would ppl be able to exploit it?
would ppl use it for different versions?
would ppl use Afar as an ex?
would you need to explain the steps here?
would Helena mention you or the author of this topic mention you and say the words “your method”? Why did they mention you like the author?
why does it feel like I read a transcription of my messages to you or a guide of something I spent time on and you added some tweaks on the foundation?
Something not personal and easy:
I think the reactions don’t fill these criteria, letting us and them conclude: you are the author. Is it true?
For inventions using electricity, there are just using the same technology: electricity. All inventors after Thomas Edison just copied him because it was using electricity?
Because it is easy to do, no copyrights?
The person who draws a line or a dot, they didn’t invent the concept, anyone can do it. Is there no copyright?
The person who takes the time to do her personal guide from writing, copying pasting links or vocabulary, telling how to subtitle, English rules that are not invented by them or sb who does a quiz from a combination of existing quizzes: I can just use someone’s else work and tell it’s my own when I talk about it because it is an easy material? Would it be all right if I told or let it think it was mine?
Is it more fine because someone asked how it worked, used it, wrote a transcription of these specific steps from my messages, published it though it is seen as a guide or tool used specifically on Viki for specific needs?
There is no need for credits when it is easy to translate or to edit?
I should have written a guide and publish it so the term “author” needs to be recognized and people don’t feel the need to talk about it and publish it as if they’re the author?
For me, it is common sense. Why would I need to say “in Viki guidelines, it is written…”, “according to law…”
I don’t need you mention me every time you would use it, but don’t make it appear publicly like you’re the author of something where:
I had a problem, I haven’t got anyone to explain me
I used my brain to look for it, tested it, before finding it, I failed, tried other methods, tried some formulas
Have you got to think about it?
It is easy once you know the solution. Sure the one who takes it can overlook it and thinks “This is easy, this is just copying pasting.”
I know you wanted to help, but I think there is something you omit, my mind worked to find that, use it like that, explain you clearly.
I was surprised to see that you don’t see you are considered the author of something I spent some time on and you seem to assume I didn’t put efforts in it because the solution was easy when it came out, so it is like there is no need for an author and the solution fell from the sky.
But Irmar, I know better the time and efforts I put on it. It is like omitting all the work and time I spent by not recognizing there is an author.
Even for your quizz, you took some of your time.
Even to write your post, you took some time to explain the steps.
