Please stop gaming for points


Please stop exploiting holes in the points system to gain points unfairly and with no contribution. You have "collected" over 5000 points in the last 72 hours. This is disrespectful to those who have contributed real effort and talent here, as well as an embarrassment for your employer and colleagues.

Creating fake user profiles and exploiting errors in the site configuration may be admired in a hacker forum, but not here.

Please accept our thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. This problem is being investigated and will be addressed as soon as possible. Certainly, if we discover that a member is bending the rules to get points, we will take action.

The community relies heavily on members helping one another, but also flagging inappropriate content and not following the rules.

I wish you the best, john

Hello @rwunderlich 

What do you mean by "points" ? Likes ?

That sounds indeed suspect to have even 1000 likes in a moth so 5000 in 3 days .. 😄

This is a very old conversation and based on the thread should not continue from 2015. Thanks for everyone's understanding.
