Achievement 3: Content Etiquette|| What is Plagiarism? By @misterfab
<div class="text-justify">Hello world-wild steemians, as a new steemian, its my pleasure to be here, and i am happy to use this opportunity to carry out my third achievement task as follows.


# <center>What is Plagiarism?</center>

From my understanding of English words through certain dictionaries, plagiarism  is the the act of copying someone else's works or ideas and showing them off as if they were created by one's self.

Some other words we can use to describe plagiarism is piracy, theft or appropriation. 

It is seen as a criminal act especially in the entertainment and business sectors.

On this platform i have perceived plagiarism to be a taboo and can easily depreciate a steemian's reputation.

Citation is a very useful method to avoid the snare of plagiarism. Using other people's creativity is not a crime when I acknowledge their creativity and make it clear. This will also improve my honest reputation and make my post authentic.

An example of citation:

I will copy a investment quote made by Calors Slim Helu, from a site, and refer my reader to the source or to that site below:

>"With a good perspective on history, we can have a better understanding of the past and present, and thus a clear vision of the future." — Carlos Slim Helu[source](https://www.investopedia.com/financial-edge/0511/the-top-17-investing-quotes-of-all-time.aspx) 

Once that 'source' is clicked, it will refer my reader to the source of the quote. 

Steemit is a very diversified platform where anything valid can be shared, and this emphasizes the fact that numerous thoughts, pictures, write-ups, philosophies, ideas and contents have already been shared on this platform. This requires a higher level of creativity on my part to thrive as an elite steemian. 



The steem network is a platform to exhibit my creativity and original concept. It provides us an opportunity to spend our creativity without any fee and earn according to how creative we are. This means that instead of copying other's works without attributing and crediting them publicly, it is better I improve my creativity to thrive.

But since there lovely and applicable ideas and contents that cannot be avoided in terms of copying, then acknowledgement, source awareness and citation is the only option.
Steem network will reward my original works. A plagiarised content is not original, so i need to make the source known.

When i get a picture, copy a content or another work from somewhere, I need to add a reference or the link of the exact internet page i copied it from, close to it, to notify the source.  I can as well format that link or reference using the > markup.


In summary, From the steemit etiquette, i learned that whenever i want to use pictures, quotes, ideas and contents that were not initiated by me, i will use citations on them, or use a description that will clearly lead the reader of my post to the source of the copied content. This will enhance my reputation.

Furthermore, What's the critical lesson? 
"Plagiarism accusations negatively impact an individual's credibility. People caught plagiarizing are branded as dishonest and untrustworthy. Even the best of reputations can be damaged by plagiarism"[source](https://education.seattlepi.com)

If plagiarism is ignored and practiced without control, there will be no efforts of creativity, and the world will dwell on ancient and previous philosophies. We will always copy old stuffs.

I hereby acknowledged the creators of the pictorial expressions i used in this article through their sources under each of them!


I have read and understood the Steemit Etiquette on Steemit Community and will do my best to embrace them.
