Forums - Website Topics - ATTN: Issue about the Popzara article writing credits

Brett, this is John Lucas, contributor to Popzara.com & long time member of this site.

I've noticed that VGChartz has changed the authorship of the Popzara articles to the name of "Liam Young".
"Liam Young" seems to be a generic replacement name for the Popzara user name those articles were posted under.

Two months ago I emailed you so we could talk about this discrepancy civilly & privately but you have not responded.
Our sites have once shared a fruitful partnership & I hoped that we could discuss this in a more friendly spirit.
Even though the Popzara/VGChartz partnership is now over, that doesn't mean you can disavow authorship of the content Popzara shared with VGChartz.

This is a serious matter that requires your immediate response.
Reply back swiftly so that we can get this matter resolved.

Thank you.

John Lucas

Doesn't he say he emailed him... I guessing he wants to show to all of us that Liam Young is fake and that it are popzara articles.. and 2 months is a long time to respond..

Well, if you think he hasn't responded to an email in 2 months, do you really think that posting in a forum will actually make ioi respond to him? x.o

No but it shows the users of this site that the fake Liam Young is actually Popzara.. which what John Lucas wants.. they wrote the articles they should get the credit.. so at least we the users can credit Popzara for writing articles even if ioi is using Liam Young for whatever reason..

It's probably one more thing which got overlooked when making the new version of the site.

N o but it what you do in these situations to claim credit or stop someone from claiming credit for something that is not theirs. Vgchartz needs to step it up if it wants to be taken more seriously. You guys also watermarked over others watermarks in some gifs in news articles. That is very shady and un business like. Give credit where credit is due.



Whenever the writer of an article is taken off staff there is a system error (at least I assume it's an error) that sets the author to this Liam Young person (no clue who that is).  This is not something specific to Popzara articles but happens whenever someone is taken off staff.  We'll bring it to Brett's attention.

I agree that he should be given credit for his writing. I was merely saying that there are other people you can talk to about the issue instead of creating a thread. I'm not closing it or anything. I just would have rather seen him asking other admin about the issue.
