    In response to Leymi15's post:

    At first I wasn't too sure about the rainbow concept. But when I read all the following posts, I think I get it now. Maybe that's the problem? People dont quite get the concept if they just read the first post.

    If I understand correctly, you want each rider to send their coupons in packaging of their respective colour. For example, if I am the purple rider then I send all my bundles in something purple (either purple envelopes or purple note cards within a baggie).

    Other than that, the train looks good to me. I find a big deterrent for me lately is wishlists. I usually dont have 3-4 for each rider since everyone wants the same coupons (or so it seems sometimes).

    Hope your train fills quickly for you!

    Thats why when I saw this a while ago, I had to let Lola know! So not cool, I was fuming seeing it was copied word for word including formatting style....

    I don't like to tattle tell, but in this case.... I felt it was a must; a responsibility to bring it to Lola's attention....

    Another train created on Aug 20th: http://forum.smartcanucks.ca/313933-...-train-canada/

    Except for some graphics and the disclaimer (where I ask people not copy my trains) they are the EXACT same. Word for word. This is an example of "copy & pasting". Now if it was re-written in the conductors own words, it wouldn't be such a problem. And not to pick on this conductor, I could post loads of examples!!! This is just the most recent I've seen. I used to try and ignore it but I'm done with that. Being polite seems to allow people full reign, so if I see if I will point it out in the thread from now on. There's simply NO NEED for it.

    Diannes: The share your breakfast train was mine. I did not intentionally copy the title or the train for that matter as I really did not see your train in the train thread. Itís not unusual to name trains with the reward name. Sorry if this accident offended you.


    On the other hand, I do owe an apology for liking a train so much that I used much of it to create my own. I was still new at conducting and really thought that kind of train was standard like traditional and vwl, I realize now that its not and I do feel terrible about it! So to you (you know who you are) I say Iím really sorry!

    I think a good thing would be for conductors to put their usernames in train titles which most do anyway to differentiate them

    I think the bigger issue is copying the whole train post

    I was on a "share your breakfast" train about a year ago. (hosted by Spikesfrugalside) Sometimes it really is difficult to know who started which ideas.

    to be honest if you want to steal my train ideas go right ahead just as long as you don't take all the glory for it there is bigger things to worry about.....for example Spikesfrugalside has not beeen seen or heard for a while and funny you brought her up because she is on my mind alot she has cancer and to me that is a problem not these silly petty things but that is only my opinion.

    I didn't realize she was sick! I've also been wondering where she went. It's such an odd thing to be "online friends" with people. I talk to many sc'ers here more than I talk to my "in person" friends and would be devasted if anything happened to any one of them.

    If you happen to hear from Spike, please let her know that I'm sending positive thoughts and energy her way.

    True, copying trains is small in the grand scheme of things but it doens't make it okay. I work hard and to have people blatanly copy my work, isn't fair.

    Again I dont think having similar ideas is the issue. It's the exact copying of trains. If you can't be bothered to write out your own train, then that says something.

    I didn't have any contact with spike but I hope she's doing okay and just moved on from SC (as people often do).

    I think I'm totally guilty of this. I know I asked Bargain Hunter Lola for permission to run Bingo trains but other than that, I don't believe I made an effort to ask anyone else. I know I don't have a creative or imaginative bone in my body, so I'm sure I've used many people's ideas. I'm super sorry for this and I will try to be more aware from now on. I know I really liked Bargain's idea for her CT train, so I guess I kind of copied that. Sorry Bargain_Hunter_Lola!

    I will re-word my current train tonight when I get home.

    Sorry again everyone! Thanks for bringing it to our attention though. I was really unaware it was so frustrating for people, but I also can see that it would be.

    I think your train is a little different than BHL's anyway.... But, you did ask her permission, so really, there isn't a problem.... You're just being silly BOTH trains are awesome ideas--I remember really wanting to join BHL's when she posted hers, but I had just spent all of my CT $$ after then last scratch event.
