A blog post in which GameJournos carefully compiles a list of examples of content that HipHopGamerShow.com has stolen from other sites.
I'm so mixed on whether to approve this or no. On one hand, it's really not something that I think a lot of the N4G community will be bothered about, but as someone who writes about games I want to see this presented to the public
I care..The shoutout thing is wrong. I know he think he is cool but saying shout out but source is more official and shout out is unprofessional (gives the impression that HHG basically created the story with a little help). Also not linking to the article is just bad. Not hard to do. Not sure why the article link isn't there.
OMGG!! HHG steals articles from other websites? *gasp* /end sarcasm
Sometimes I have read a news story in the paper...and 2 days later read an almost identical story covering the same information. Never have I seen mention of their sources or indeed have seen evidence of a 'shoutout'. Whinge...Whinge...Who cares?
Someone seems sad that HHG is more important than they are. If I had a nickel for every story about a story about a story taken from multiple other stories. . . I'd have a hell of a lot of nickels. All you fake journalists use each other's crap. No one cares that you aren't as good at it as other people.
He has always done this, he browses n4g, makes a video and claims to be an insider. Funny none the less.
Now if he'd only start stealing videos from somebody with talent and a clue maybe he'd not suck so much.
Ya he's been called out on n4g many times for camping the waiting for approval articles considering his audience doesn't know about n4g they figure he's got contacts
This is so timely...
So because he does shoutouts and links the site, instead of the article, he's stealing? Sounds pretty petty to me and smells a bit like jealousy. Why is this site so concerned with HHG and the sites he steals content from? You'd think those sites would have done something about it... We get it. He's not a journalist. Now lets round up the rest of the pretenders....then we all can wonder what happened to all of the news and rumors on this site...
You might have missed the part where he cuts and pastes content from others and posts it on his site.
And you missed the part when I said he's not the only one doing it. The only real difference is in the language used to give credit. For example.. http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed... This happens all the time on many different sites. The author cuts out content from another site's interview, then adds their own spin to it as if they conducted the interview. Not you in particular but a lot of people single him out and make him the bad guy because of his culture, so dumb s*** like this pops up every other month. All I'm saying is, when you single out one guy amongst a see of "thieves", it looks like jealousy. Especially considering how I've never seen this site until now.
Lol, I can't believe I'm reading about HHG stealing articles, on a site that does nothing but show other people's articles. I understand N4G gives the original author credit but seriously, come on. It's the world we live in, the world of the internet, where any news is recycled news. And JUST TO POINT THIS OUT, if HHG gets info off N4G, and shows it to someone who doesn't read N4G, then HE DOES have inside information. Inside information he got off N4G... for people who are out of the N4G loop...
Vast difference between linking to the content of others and stealing it. To note, many sites post their own information on N4G, even.
