What you're describing is more an "homage" than plagarizm, really. I'm assuming you would be using different characters. It's basically like all the comic covers that homage the death of Supergirl cover from Crisis on Infinite Earths...but with different characters. It's not plagiarism, it's a reference. But if several artists have a memorable layout and are all using it, chances are it actually is referencing something memorably original.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Would that still qualify as plagiarism? After all, it could be argued that what I've recreated isn't that original to begin with since several other people have supposedly had the same general idependently from each other.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:54 PM)

And I were then to create a new image, not traced but maybe "swiped", except I wouldn't copy a specific source image, but merely recreate the basic pose and perspective shared between all of them...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:52 PM)

*deleted*

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:49 PM)

And out of sheer coincidence, they all feature very similar ideas, concepts, poses and/or perspectives, supposedly with none of the original creators having copied from one of the others...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:47 PM)

Assuming I were to find not one but two, three, four or even more source images, all of them by different artists, or by different photographers depicting different models...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:45 PM)

Just out of curiosity, a question regarding the concept of plagiarism:

I reject your canon and substitute my own

@  unluckiness : (25 June 2019 - 12:32 AM)

Answer: It doesn't matter because even if there was one, it was never relevant in S1 and it got blown up with his original body

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 June 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Most people think Transformers canon is a series of discrete parallel lines, really it's more like a big ball of canony-wanony... stuff.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 June 2019 - 06:31 PM)

Hate to say this, but the simple answer is that you are thinking too hard and realistically, it does not matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2019 - 04:57 PM)

@  Paladin : (24 June 2019 - 04:16 PM)

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 03:03 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Meanwhile, congratulations civil resistance, part 2: So a group of Nazis were holding one of their Good Old Times Reenactment festivals in a small East German town.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:26 PM)

It's basically like an anti-Trump candidate winning Texas.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:25 PM)

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Congratulations, democracy part 1: Today is a historic day for Turkey.

@  MEDdMI : (22 June 2019 - 04:45 PM)

@  Nevermore : (22 June 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Supposedly it's about that football player Calvin Johnson.

@  Pennpenn : (22 June 2019 - 07:03 AM)

I'm vaguely confused why there is a Nicki Minaj song in my youtube reccomendations, but even more confused as to why that song (which appears to be from an official account) is called "MEGATRON".

Universal streams are actually flavored like quarks, but it's simplified down to polarities for everyday use.

Also no one talks about the top and bottom flavored streams.

As long as we're pointing out loopholes in the universal stream system, there are actually 38 possible decimal values for "real" univrses since we've seen single-digit dates presented both with and without leading zeros.

Also it occurs to me that the Beta streams are gonna get confusing in 2084, if whatever toys we're getting at that point can be called G1, but other than that this system's specificity means it's pretty future-proofed as long as nobody decides to premier a new G1 cartoon on exactly the 100th anniversary of the original or something.

Surely no one actually uses the full stream designations in conversation.

I went to the final Botcon, and only the final Botcon.  On that day I realized that, yes, there are some people that do only see the sun once a year, to come to Botcon, and yes, they do say those stupid designations out loud.  I discovered terrible realities that weekend.

I thought I'd watch his newest video, and...

 

...you know, I thought I'd heard some bad takes in my time, but "all Transformers fans except me only care about the toys but now it's impossible to care about fiction and continuity because Fun Publications isn't producing stories anymore" is an apocalyptic all-timer.

Though it sounds like he was one of the fans really engaged by the multiverse concept, let's face it and accept that Fun Pub fiction was the tiniest sliver of annual Transformers story output. There's mounds of stories still out there... and some of it even still in multiverse form. Legends has its, uhm, quirks, but if you like universes colliding, well it's there.

Oh trust me, bad takes is pretty much all he had.
First off, he was a total asshole to people who asked him genuine (if, admittedly, kinda dumb) questions, a lot of whom were quite clearly children.
He made his own Wiki (http://theorcacleii..../wiki/Main_Page) because the TFWiki was too much for casuals and not in-Universe enough.
And of course, his completionist attitude towards media, where he insisted he had to read everything and thats why he hated DC Rebirth (because it brought back old continuity and he didnt want to read every comic from the 40s) and dropped the entire IDW line after the Sitterson stuff went down.

And this is just getting into stuff related to his channel, and not all the personal shit we went through.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.
