Good detective work Drew.
In all seriousness, if you are going to do something like this in the future, here's a tip. Start the article off with your own opinion of the refurb and then link to the UOnews article. This is a great site and I admire the work that's put into it but please give credit where credit is due.
As I said before this isn't the only site you can get info from...there are many other ones as well.
This isn't "ripped" from anywhere but the press release that many sites have quoted... I love how both of you have so much righteous indignation but no knowledge of how companies release promotional information.
2nd Anon is correct. It's not from a written article from a particular author, so there's no one to source.
Righteous indignation huh? Wow... that's pretty heavy. Why don't we give credit to Andy Warren, Debbi Compton, Doug McKee, and Emily Lupfer. The people who worked on the actual publication and article on UOnews. Also on the bottom of the publication it clearly states, "MATERIAL MAY NOT BE REPRODUCED IN ANY FORMAT WITHOUT EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT OF UNIVERSAL ORLANDO® RESORT."
As this site has done in the past, they will give a quick personal synopses with a link to an article or press release. OTPN should stick with that method and not plagiarize. Simple as that. It would be the same as using a newspaper article as your own and not citing the author.
Are you serious?
I don't care if its from a news article, a press release or the back of a cereal box. The fact I can get a lot of the updates I want from one site is great. the fact that OTPN does this is great. The pics are great. so why don't you all relax and enjoy what here.
Plagiarism is one of the worst accusations that can be made to a news author, so we feel like we should explain what happened in this case.
Yes, the article is from UO Team, a Team Member publication. While some of the information included there is only for TMs, some articles can be shared with the public, and that's one of them. What wrong in recognizing people behind the scenes that worked hard to refurbish a ride? Is it a no-no to say that the rock work has been repainted? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Also, many sites share things from CM websites, yet nobody challenges them or asks for a source.
Since UO Team is an OFFICIAL magazine, we deemed it not necessary to mention it. When we post press releases, we do not start by saying that the source is this or that. The same applies to this post. We thought it was obvious that the article came from Universal. We NEVER PLAGIARIZED, and never will.
Drew and Watson, GET A LIFE! Thanks morality police! WHO CARES! It's a press release! Go see a physician, you both need medication!
