Why should I keep contributing to this site when others get credit for my contributions?

Hmm...can you elaborate? Like post a link of an article where a lib mod allegedly stole your credit?

Exactly how are library moderators taking credit for what you do? Because, last time I checked, leaving a personal mark on an article was against the rules/guidelines.

Some users make less than good submissions, some library mods - for instance me -, will then look up information and use it, state source and have that in the article.


Also, it is against forum rules to make a thread in this section. If anything, this belongs in the general section.

I'm still waiting for his elaboration; proof. When someone accuses someone else of something they ought to include proof in their accusations. =p

Nobody is taking credit for anything you do, it's a library for contributions.

For the record it is actually against the rules to take credit for any contribution to the Library. That goes for everyone, including mods. If you find an article that has something in it crediting it to a specific individual immediately let a Library Mod know, we will fix the article and remove any credit reference.

i am guessing all he asks is for his name to be mention or something like that. which i see it pointless, cause if you are helping out because you want recognition then you are helping out for the wrong reasons.

I am so going to sue Wikipedia, for all the content I write from them and never get credit :(

Isn't providing info that you know that others might not good enough? I think people forget that the original intent of the internet was to provide information and knowledge. But now days all people want is to be rich and famous on the interwebz!

But in all honesty if you don't feel like your contributions net you anything, then I don't believe anyone actually is twisting your arm to? I don't get paid to mod any of the forums I mod, I don't get paid for helping people on tech support forums. I do it because I enjoy it, it makes me feel as I am contributing if I get credit or not. I also know that there are plenty of other people out there that know things I may one day need help from, who are also not looking for anything out of it.

If it makes you feel any better I am sure plenty of people appreciate any good content you provide, even if you aren't getting credit.
