    Nope, you can't plagiarize your own content.

    At least not here - in some academic institutions, reusing papers is counted as plagiarism.

    I think most people's fears when they ask this kind of question is that they'll be taken as plagiarists when the work is actually theirs.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Really? The Wikipedia definition of plagiarism mentions the copying of another author's work, so are you sure it's not called something else?

    Yes, but this forum doesn't expect you to write/make something new like a school would.

    I'm pretty sure that's still called plagiarism.

    Not to go too off topic, but Zekurom isn't wrong--in academics, you have to state if you're reusing a paper. It's considered a violation of ethics if you resubmit a paper, although I'm not sure it's expressly considered plagiarism. But for our purposes (and the purposes of more general "society,") a writer's work is his or her own, and a writer can't steal from themselves.

    But someone could copy a fanfic or another authors work and then paste it on another site. How would you track that?

    If we get reports of that, we look into it.
