Reporting plagarism: Arduino Hydroponics Answered
It has recently come to my attention that an instructable here was blatently plagiarized from one of my previous projects, and in fact actually won an award.
The instructable in question is: https://www.instructables.com/id/Hyduino-Automated-Hydroponics-with-an-Arduino/
Proof that it ripped off my project can be found here; my original forum post here goes back to 2012, the instructable in question here was posted November 2014: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=130344.180
My repository containing my code on github: https://github.com/BillieBricks/Billie-s-Hydroponic-Controller/blob/master/HydroponicControllerV1.1.0
The code from the instructable in question: https://www.instructables.com/files/orig/FSR/83MH/I2G1F678/FSR83MHI2G1F678.ino
The code is mine, line for line, with the exception that the plagiarizing author in question removed my comment at the top with my name as the author.
I tried to contact the author, but my messages went ignored and the comments on his instructable page were flagged and deleted. The author in his instructable says "Big thanks to BillieBricks for working out a lot of the code," but in fact the entirety of the code is simply ripped straight off from my project, along with the ideas and implimentation.
My desired outcome would be to either see this instructable removed, or to have the author include that the entire project be credited to me, rather than stealing credit for something they didn't do. Thank you,
