What is the proper way to report a stolen instructable? Answered

If a new instructable is posted that is exactly the same as a different one posted by a different user, how should it be reported?

When I say exact, I mean that the exact photos were uploaded as someone elses work.

Here is what I mean.

Original Instructable:  https://www.instructables.com/id/Colored-Pencil-Beads-1/

Copied Instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Colourful-necklace/





Ironically, Just Copy and Paste the question you asked here into the email :)

That was real special, buddy didn't even take his own photos XD

Thanks, yeah normally 2 people doing the same instructable is really no big deal, at least if you take your own photos it can be your own variation of someone elses instructable. This guy just stole all of it.

+1 to Wired_Mist's advice. Also, flag as "inappropriate" so that staff look at it more carefully.

Me, I'd pour derision on the idiot who copied my work, with a link.
