Stealing codes

Don't you just hate when someone just repost your code, exactly the same, even with the same name... Is there any solution for this?

My codes reside on my server and some compile on my phone's compiler (if your phone isn't rooted, ouch) but anyway if I gave the address to my website away here, oh the code that would be up for grabs... my life's work. I would cry.

@Filip: Why do you think I haven't been posting more of my projects? I knew it was a problem from the day I joined. As for what you can do? Raise the concern to Sololearn via email, Facebook, and Twitter wherever they seem to listen. If they won't take a stand on blatant plagiarism, then they really don't care about the app or the community. Why is this a hot button topic for me? Because if this was school, you'd fail the class automatically if not worse penalties. If this were a university, you'd fail, be expelled, and the stain of that would forever be on your record. And on a job? Fired. Right on the spot.

I completely agree with you Madison... Well, I am kinda new to programming so I want to see if the things I make are good for other people, and It's just sad when you see your exact same code posted by another guy. Idk, I want to improve, and whatever I make if I feel that's worth checking out I post it here

Well, that can be true, but It's not always like that, can you give me your thoughts, I really want to hear them, since you are an experianced programmer?

yeah. sadly there are many users who use this app unethically and you can't really do anything. leave a comment and tell them you are the source. personally I hate it more when group of users mass upvote their own answers and downvote others. for example there are some who have 1-2k followers and when they answer something silly or wrong they get a lot of upvotes anyway and the other hand they downvote who critiques them or other good answers.

that what a patent button can also do no copy & paste allowed even though it going to make thief angrily type out the entire codes might as well make them learn the hard way for fun

the app needs something like the fork in github. (you can copy public code of others, and modify it free, but the people see where the code comes from.)

maybe a solution would be a patent button that sololearn should add but only accessible to the original creator behind the code so nobody can't save button other ppl code
