Hello everyone, Many of you will be aware there is a lot of negativity about TES Resources on social media at the moment, driven by a small number of people who are totally against the concept of teachers selling their resources to other teachers (although apparently happy to purchase resources from the likes of CGP and Pearson). There is a growing sense of frustration that TES are not doing enough to combat issues of copyright on the site. People are finding their resources being plagiarized or stolen on TES and finding it takes the team a long time to respond or that they do not take action. I'm not criticising the staff about this at all as I know they are working diligently, but this does seem to be the pervading attitude at the moment. Therefore I've had the idea that TES introduce a system where the first five resources uploaded by a new author are thoroughly checked and verified by the TES Resources team. TES moderate their forums and will ban members who go against the rules, this needs to happen with TES Resources as well. Once the user has had their five resources checked they are then awarded a 'TES Verified' badge that is displayed on their account and resources. Something does need to change as no one on social media is differentiating between authors that spend hours, days and even weeks making one resource, double checking materials for copyright exemption, developing their own ideas, etc and those that cheat or copy. Something really tangible needs to happen - at the moment the current processes just aren't enough.
