    I say, don't worry until your phone or driver licence # appears spelled out in hedges or something similar in that town. At that point, flattery becomes stalking, and (s)he is looking over your shoulder outside your Southern-most window behind your easy chair! :shock:

    Haha, well I got a copycat of my own, at first I was flattered. But now I almost get confused not sure wether I'm visiting a neighbor or if I'm in my own town...

    LOL!

    Wow, just wow. I know one should be gracious and consider it flattery, but to be honest, being copied to that extreme would annoy the hell out of me. They really went to town, so to speak. Who knows though, they might just be little kids.

    Peru and RS, your responses cracked me up.

    I just think it looks like your starting your own business, and soon we'll all have a Tony68k skate rink in our town. :mrgreen: But Clearly your franchise is passed it's sell by date as the snow has now melted.

    I understand nicking ideas, particularly ones that are recreating stuff from the show but that ice rink thing is just creepy. What you did is nice but its not exactly a masterpiece. I don't mean offence by that, I mean there really is no need to copy it almost item for item.

    What are you talking about? His is way better than yours! That extra table next to Gulp 'n Blow ties the whole piece together. It's a case of the apprentice complaining about the master here. You've a long way to go Tony, just look at how he has transformed what you have produced with the lightest of touches. Amazing.

    You should add the table to yours and then left him complain about you :wink:

    Peruhomer, it's not too often that "lol's" are real anymore, but you caught me at the right time. I was dying. I went back and read it again after I finished the rest of the posts and laughed again. Well done.

    btw, Tony68k, I consider it flattery. Good job. I can understand your conflict though.

    LOL wow all these copies are so blatant it's making me sick!!

    I've noticed 2 copycats in my friends list that i have since deleted (And no i will not be accepting their new friend requests either) Although not quite as piece by piece as these pics, it's still frustrating...

    I’m not sure if posting user screen names was intended or not, but I have now learned that I am vicariously friends with forum members who do not officially appear in my neighbors list.

    I am now off to build a massive hill in the corner of my town, place the prison on top of it, put the escalator to nowhere in front of it, and see how long it takes Archie to notice it’s there.
