If the first casualty of war is truth, then what is the cost of a war against terror? Perhaps it's the knowledge that in order to eradicate evil, we must begin to emulate the evildoers. And if you label your enemy 'evil' long enough, you justify even the most immoral act as noble.

Does this count towards linking to an image (Say, something off DeviantArt like artwork of the Barrow Downs from LOTR) to give an idea of what a place looks like, is that against the rules? I mean, it's not like I'd be taking credit and you can't expect people to search out the authors and credit them with EVERY single link.

It's time I came clean. I've long been riding the coattails of genius, its true.
I too have been copy/pasting huge slabs of text for my own character sheets from one of the greatest examples of humanity. While imitation is indeed the highest form of flattery, the man quite simply doesn't get the adoration and praise that he clearly deserves.

Did we really need a thread for plagiarism? Has it gotten that bad?

I'll admit, I just found my avatar on Google Images. I don't know who created it, as it linked me to an inactive Tumblr page and the search ended there.
Until recently, I used a map I found on Google Images. I credited the guy (found it on Deviant ART) and everything but I still got kinda worried. So, I made a Deviant ART account just to PM the guy. And he hasn't been online since January 7 2013....So, I guess no map for me? Unless....
If I linked the guys profile, said I didn't make it at all and maybe slightly edited it, would that still count as plagiarism? The thing I'm most concerned about is my slightly editing it ( Example: A circle around that island or a dot at that place to show where this certain town is)

Which is why I ask people now if I can use their characters from older RPs of mine, as NPCs, instead of assuming I can, even if I know they won;t have a problem with it. Last time I did, I had to remove the NPC as it was a 'foul spit in the face' since I used it and invited the guy to the RP.
