Are you really there for learning, playing and sharing?

Some learners spend their time copying and republishing other's codes, mostly without understanding. Is it a good way for learning? All codes are visible and accessible for all of us, it's great. but is it not better for these learners to write their own codes? I agree with the fact that writing some codes is a good thing. But I think, writing our own codes is better. Creativity is something that some learners ignore. Maybe I'm wrong about the way of learning. Tell me your minds if possible. Thanks.

But @Ahri you did not make a cross browser version for my (and @Tim.G) browsers! :3 @-webkit-keyframes before of all other statements and -webkit-animation before of all other CSS rules. ^^ Yep, anyway i am agree, no matter if someone save my codes, Open Source is free for all, sometimes also documented to inspire other users to understand how different things work together. :)

I argue its good IF they edit them. They can use the original code as a base to build into something different. And well, it's great for learning! For example, I learned a lot about HTML + CSS by editing this code: https://code.sololearn.com/WNgA5FX6sCVP/?ref=app Into this: https://code.sololearn.com/WEd6SZqDv4n8/?ref=app I'm a lot more comfortable with the idea of making a website due to how easy it was. I didn't even know css, I just experimented. People have taken my code at least three times and have improved or changed it into their own thing, and I love that!

@Roman Cage only those who change it to be something new should make it public. Otherwise it should be private, but if they learned from it, thats still good. I have plenty who have copied my code with no edits, and I do not advocate for that.

@Ahri, you're not wrong... But it depends on kinds of modifications they do. look at this code https://code.sololearn.com/W2aXF9GvCrGi/?ref=app and then look at this one https://code.sololearn.com/WvZHs23yDPl7/?ref=app Do you think the second one is useful for the learner who have written that? there are many others examples

@Maz I agree to you, community is about to make something awesome, help each other and learn from their faults. I think you've used Scratch like me and know that it is almost the same as SoloLearn, but no courses
