I was just thinking about this since a user posted about someone stealing a project. One of the good things about Github is that, assuming you leave your original repository intact, the initial commit is there with a timestamp. If someone steals your code and also posts it publicly, it can be easily found that your project was created earlier. Therefore, you are likely the original owner, especially if you include a license.
Without going against the spirit of remixing others’ projects, it might be nice if Glitch projects showed an initial commit timestamp. Not sure how that would be implemented with Git running behind the scenes, but it would give people a bit more public ownership. Maybe there can be an option to switch it off, also. Then if the project is remixed (forked) it could show that somehow as well.
It’s a pretty loose idea, just thought I’d throw it out there. I’m not personally too concerned about people taking my stuff since a lot of my work is honestly, fairly basic as far as programming ability goes. But I know first hand how much employers nitpick candidates for jobs now more than ever…with that in mind, some folks might be wary of putting projects up at all or storing them elsewhere. Which might be good for boosting apps. But, the more people keep things private, the less sharing occurs as well.
