Now, if the author of the questions copied it without properly attributing it, attribution should be added (please don't assume malice, not everybody is aware of the rules).

You left a comment linking to your question on Puzzling, which is not required, but nice to generate some traffic. I've posted a link back; some users here might not be aware that a Puzzling site exists and vice versa.
