I've done this with recipes. I'll give someone the complete recipe, but I'll leave out something like the salt. IMO if you're a good enough cook to come to me for a recipe, you'll instantly know what's missing and add it.

You know what I noticed many years ago, that topics posted on alternative sites were used by writers and in movies.
Isn't all material submitted here the property of ATS?

Just because you have an idea, doesn't mean that some one else not have the same idea hundreds, thousands of miles away...or even around the corner.
Hi, i would like to open a topic about famous people secretly sourcing ideas from ATS and using them to their advantage.
First let me start by asking you how many people do you think do this, how often and name a few? Heres a few on my list;
Thats a short list off the top of my head. I believe these people and many others source material from ATS boards. Being that these forums are user generated content how do you feel about it?
Should we discuss this as a community? It seems as if everyone is making money off of us and our ideas but us. I dont mean the ATS site administrators but i mean everyone. It seems very disingenuous for all of these people to crowd source their knowledge and sell it as their own opinions and ideas. Thats kind of the opposite of what i hope everyone stands for.

Yeah ive noticed over the years weve lost a % of people who cover those topics for whatever reason.
I cant remember the last time i read a galactic federation of light thread, not that im into it but just saying.

It would suck to see an idea one had for the short stories forum
or writing contest. Become a best seller a couple of months after
one had submitted it to ATS first.
Nothing posted on this main stream website is original..absolutely nothing.
