Tanqeed Inspired/Copied from NG, and Other Forums
You must have read the post on Tanqeed about Barfi scenes Inspired/Copied from various Movies and must have appreciated the author’s effort and also condemned makers of Barfi for copying.
Well the owner of Tanqeed is no saint. This guy preaches about ethics, originality etc but has resorted to the same tactics.
So let me write a “Barfi copied scenes” style wala post here
Tanqeed has many elements inspired/copied from NG. Here are some of the plugins and styles from which Tanqeed’s blog is copied from. I know that there are lot things but these are the ones I was able to find. I will add more later..

(Note: They have also copied the customised smilyes too. Guess what, even the command is same like :dogadance: :ungli: etc… Kuch toh originality dikao boss)
Twitter pluggin Parasite err Tanqeed
Not only this, Scene of the week, Blast from the past, SOTD, Predication thread, The list goes on and on….
FYI, Tanqeed was started by ex-NG member Sputnik who was banned for reasons known to Mods. Later he opened tanqeed site, Originally planned as a SRK fan forum. When the site failed to draw hits, He changed into a Movie forum. Many banned members of NG are seeking refuge there.
We wish Tanqeed all the best. But one request to the owner is, think something original. Don’t depend on NG for everything. Else you will end up as labelled ‘Wannabe’, If not already
