If you didn't want any one using this then you shouldn't have posted it here.You will get the credit because your name is shown on the right side . With the link icon on the top, any one can share it. you cannot control it by any means. And the new highlighted part(of post #1) on the beginning will change the beauty of your post. you can move it to bottom of same post as a disclaimer . Because I feel if someone read it first he may lose interest in further reading. Its my personal suggestion. And I haven't shared your page till now.
I think you both simply misunderstood me. When I made this thread I did it with the thought of helping people understand ClixSense better. I never said don't share this on your own site and blog. I simply said do what you think is right after I realized people were linking back to this thread with THEIR referral link. I wanted to share this with the ClixSense community and not just post this on a blog or website and say at the bottom "don't steal my work" but I didn't want to do that. My hope was that members would gain their own ideas from this thread and spruce up their own blog or website with their own ideas. I am not trying to control this thread in any way. I want everyone here to benefit from it. However, I don't think it is right to simply copy your referral link at the top of this page and promote it for your own gain.
(Keep in mind I am saying this in the general sense. I am not pointing fingers at anyone).
The original idea of this thread was to help current members of ClixSense understand it better so they can get the most out of it. When I realized that anyone could easily link back to it with their referral link I started to think to myself, "Oh gosh, what should I do?" Then I decided to just leave the thread as it is and hope for the best. I want you to know that I am not a Grinch. I love helping people and it makes me feel very good when I know my work is helping people understand something better. However it is my belief that when it comes to gaining your referrals you should do this through your own ideas and effort. So this is what I would like for anyone to do if they want to use this information provided here (though I can not make anyone do this, I just want to let you know how I feel you should go about it):
Copy any information in the OP (original post) and post it where you like.
Wherever you post it, mention my username here but don't link back to THIS page. Just use your own referral link to a different
I know that this thread has my name as the OP author. However, that doesn't mean everyone will realize it is me even with proper credits. What I am afraid of happening is that someone will grab their link at the top, promote it around on PTCs and other sites, someone read this thread and think "hmm, this is pretty neat!" and then signup which will give that person a referral from motivational content they did not create. Understand I am not trying to be greedy here. I feel this way about any content on the internet especially when someone tries to monetize off someone else work. Instead be creative and think about ways you can create some examples to help promote ClixSense.
