Is imitation the highest form of flattery?

So it’s mid day, and we’re hurrying our asses to get everything mailed out soonest.. when I get wind of this..

Local upcoming online store (blogshop) – f*****sh puts up an ad

Project Description:

1.) To create a site like

2.) Site to have inventory tracking for every item sold

3.) To allow users to sign up to mailing list

4.) Colour scheme to follow reference site

5.) Functionality to follow reference site

Seriously? Everything to follow reference site? It’s one thing to take reference, but when you’re only doing so from one source, that’s called copying.

Please, f*****sh, if you are reading this, do the hard work yourself.

Full on copying ain’t cool.

    Oh, I think you gals aren’t the first shop to be copied. I found one myself that resembled another shop I regularly check, so i went to post on their fb page to inform them of their copycat. Colour schemes down to item style, site and product layout remains very similar.

    I get extremely annoyed when copycats pull this sort of crap on me. Why don’t you post screenshots but blur out the names/identifying info?

      Hi Felicia,

      I don’t think the website is up yet + I think the person who posted the job descrip is someone who is supposed to do the store for them and he’s just outsourcing. I mean everyone copies but don’t do a blatant 1-1 xerox! grrr *annoyed.
