e hate that this page has become necessary, but the fact is that Imperium has been plagiarized and/or ripped from one too many times. We don't mean in the way that something looks vaguely similar to something on Imp (after all, Imperium has a myriad of influences too), but rather egregious copying that clearly uses Imperium as a template without permission.
Again, this page has only been created due to blatant ripping multiple times
that we feel should be exposed and not condoned within the RP world. If you want to use Imperium for direct inspiration, just talk to us. Ask permission, and give credit. That's all we ask.
If you're on this page and want to be removed, try to make something even marginally more original, and then contact us.
This forum has unfortunately been ripping from Imperium for years; both blatantly and by subtly imitating us after updates.
In the past, found to have plagiarized our (now archived) achievement system
and and asked to remove it.
We were also a little weirded out by how much their skin
seemed to be inspired by ours
(not incriminating, but only furthered our suspicion that they were indeed plagiarizing intentionally).
Thread layout / mini profile
(and a closer copy on their test skin
Profile / thread layout
(note the almost identical background pattern, shields, and pointed "banner" profile)
Ironically, it seems like one or both of these forums may have also copied from each other, if you look at the thread layout.
