The title kind of says it all, originality is pretty much dead, and not just on Minecraft.In the past few months, on the forums especially, I've seen thread, after thread, after thread, after thread copied or altered to be something else but is still basically the same exact thing as the thread is was copied from. I won't be pointing out any specific threads, but you can take a look around and see what I'm talking about.Now, is this completely a bad thing? No, at least not all of the time, there are a few reasons I could think of that would be good reasons to copy a thread:The thread was locked by the owner, but many people liked it. (Of course you'd ask permission from for Original Poster to re-post though)The thread had a good idea and/or purpose but wasn't put together as well as it should be or just died off.Honestly, if a good thread did die out because the owner could no longer maintain it, or I found a thread that had an amazing idea and/or purpose but it wasn't put together as well as it could of been, I'd either try to help the owner out or re-post the thread giving credit to the OP, but this doesn't happen all of the time.There are some threads that are okay to copy because it doesn't really make a big difference:Auction Templates (Say someone is auctioning the exact same item as you, you could just copy their template and save yourself a few minutes)Selling/Buying Thread Templates (Same reason as Auctions, and as long as they didn't apply extra fanciness to their thread, and you changed it up a little, I think it'd be okay to use)Onto all of the copied threads and why it's not okay.If you go to the gaming section, and I can not be the only one to notice this, you will see the same copied name from the "let's talk about skyrim" thread over and over again, and if you keep scrolling you will find 5-6 more threads with the "Let's talk about _____" that were posted long after the Skyrim thread. This is a bit of a problem, I see why the name is copied, it's an okay name for a thread that is focused on a specific game, but you could make your thread stand out even more by coming up with a name that hasn't been used a hundred other times.I could think of plenty of alternative thread titles that would be original and sound better than "Let's Talk"[SHARE] Pac-Man Nation[SHARE] Minecraft Legends - Share you MC experiences![SHARE] Grand Theft Auto Police Scanner (Players would share their favorite crimes committed on GTA)[SHARE] Call of Duty Kill Feed - Favorite Kills, Games, and more!Honestly, coming up with an original title isn't that hard. This doesn't just happen with the "Let's Talk" threads either, I've seen plenty of other thread names and ideas copied plenty too, this was just a good example.Why is this a problem? Empire Minecraft is a pretty original server, I haven't come across any other server in my time like it and I don't expect to. But I can't say the same for the forums, I do see a lot of original threads, but I see a lot of copied threads as well, they may not be copied, but I've found other threads just like them. Let's make the forums as original as our server.Real LifeYou don't see much originality in the real world either and I believe that contributes to some of the unoriginality in other places. You can go listen to music, such as rap, and hear most of the same lyrics or messages over and over again, or watch a movie and basically predict the entire story line from the first 20 minutes of the movie.
