I apologize to all members of funtrivia as I know we shouldn't plagerize. However, the last three that has been deleted was taken from other places. I thought that unlike quizzes, we could take games from other places.

However, most of the other games is my own work but there may be a couple that is not mine. I honestly can't remember. I know it makes it difficult for Sue to know which is which and makes it difficult for her. I am asking her to delete all my challeneges so that might help

Next time, I will make sure everything is in my own words. Most every challenge is but I apologize to the moderators, administrators, editors and all people who play.

I enjoy making games and I took a long time to make some of these games but I plagerized others as I thought I could take things from other sites. As pointed out before I do things in the forum to read all instructions beforehand. I am going to make really good games for the people in this forum from now on.

I fully understand and I want you, Sue to delete all the challenges since this s not fair to anyone. It will help a lot trying to determine which is which.

Sincere apologies to everyone. I know people will be upset with me but if you could not bash me here as I am trying to become better. I will show you the good games I will do in the future, my games only.

Thanks again to Sue as I respect her more now because she wrote me before deleting.
Thanks Sue

For some time I have collected logic and other puzzles from a variety of sources:
books, newspapers, magazines and so on. With one exception (a series of books by Raymond Smullyan), I have kept no record of sources; they were just little puzzles that interested me. I recently placed one of these in the Forum's Games and Challenges section, and would like to offer more. How do I stand with regard to plagiarism? It seems likely that in many cases the authors of the puzzles obtained them from elsewhere.
