I just had an awful thought regarding moderating (involves non-KYC accounts)

Gord ·
I understand the pros and cons regarding KYC and privacy, and it has been mentioned that KYC will only be required if you want to collect on your contributions. However, how can we address the issue of trolling via non-KYC accounts? I'm not referring to people being hostile to mods, but to people sending truly horrible images and videos to a Niche; subject matter that is so abhorrent as to evoke PTSD in moderators who must endure it. Previously, I was on the side of allowing 'anonymous'...

Ended up with two forum accounts without meaning to

I think this happened during the recent submission of a support ticket about a payment glitch. For some reason I was asked to create an account during that process... I thought it was weird, but then just assumed there was a separate account needed for support issues. I've just realised that ever since, I have been posting to the community forum under this new account, (name is 'M'). Is it possible to merge the two accounts under my current, older account ('Malkazoid')? To be clear, the...

Cheating on "Inside Blogging" and strolling trolls

Vico Biscotti ·
Inside Blogging , a niche I had suggested, has two absurd bids from two clearly fake and brand new accounts, obviously coming from the same person. It's clear revenge for my appeal on BLOG. I was not going to buy the niche anyway, seen the unreliable scenario, but please stop this madness. There are already several fake accounts that can do anything and that we all know come from the same person. I can't believe they're still allowed to stroll around and sabotage. cc:...

Hi Gord- We've made no statements about requiring KYC to "collect on contributions"... though I am not sure I understand what that means. Certainly, moderators may come across inappropriate material from time to time as they serve in their roles of moderator. However, they are also being paid and that should be considered part of the job. I also want to make clear that KYC does not force anyone to use their real name. All KYC does is verify that someone is a real person (and is of a certain...

Fabiana Cecin ·
The best solution is for non-KYC accounts to require a NRVE stake, that is, a time-locked balance of, say, 1,000 NRVE. So those who pass KYC don't have to deposit the NRVE. That would filter 99%+ of account spam, and the rest can be mopped up by reputation etc.

Re: Cheating on "Inside Blogging" and strolling trolls

Bashar Abdullah ·
Seen them too. The issue here I think is there are no clear terms to ban a new low reputation account for bidding on up to 10 niches at the time. And no control over how many times or how high they can bid. And I'm seeing genuine users trying to outbid them on other niches they really want. This is why I don't think bidding is wise right now, until Narrative can control the situation. It's unfair to decent bidders.

There is a problem with this David, which you may not be taking into account when saying yes , we should congratulate a member who has started serial trolling the site in multiple ways, for winning a niche with a dummy account, as part of a campaign of spamming well over a dozen niches with bids.

Disagree. He probably won't pay, but he MAY pay, and still acting just for revenge, and then sabotage the niche. And if he doesn't pay he's still there altering bids, delaying purchases (even delaying is part of his scheme), and giving a confusing picture to new users. We wait for the team to solve but, IMO, the thing is serious. cc: @Malkazoid

Let me temper things here - we are aware of the activity going on and are examining the best path forward where we can utilize (and adjust as needed) the system/rules to automatically take care of behaviors. We want the system to do the work as it is important moving forward. We expected some things to be tested. While it doesn't seem like we are acting as fast as you would like, it is important to look across a bunch of behaviors and patterns so we can best adjust.

He applied a chilling effect on other bidders, by creating troll accounts and spamming many niches with bizarre bids. The predictable effect was for serious bidders...

Must disagree also. Some people are serious about inflicting damage, not about nurturing the community.

I'd hate for the team not to hear the others if you still believe in them... Whatever post limits end up being ideal, based on the different [rep levels], [age of account], [time since last low quality], etc... your idea of a dynamically adjusted cool down period can tip the scales in favour of the community when it comes to the spam issues.

Maybe once per day is too restrictive (I like the 3 suggested by @Malkazoid ) but 10 is certainly too much, especially for low rep.

Re: An Approach to Dealing with Spam

Slaz ·
Perhaps in addition a small NRVE fee could be applied to override this rep-based daily posting limit. If the poster took effort and believes it’s high quality content, then that post’s reward value should far exceed the small NRVE fee that allowed it to be posted. It would discourage spam while encouraging new users to build up their rep slowly and steadily to increase the amount of allowed posts a day without a NRVE fee.

The issue is serious, and worth mentioning that such lower rewards are only possible because of the amount of time Narrators put to dig up and downvote plagiarism. I know this probably still counts toward their reward, but obviously not enough to be worth maintaining it as the site keeps growing and more spam keeps on coming.

@Malkazoid I don't see how you were bashing Nigeria. You do have Nigerian heritage, yes? You were pointing out the economics that makes it profitable to violate the rules on Narrative. If the certain accounts that are serial violators are from Nigeria, it would be ideal if they could be taught how to post content on here that isn't stolen, doesn't break any rules, and they could be making a legitimate living on here. It would likely mean they'd need to start new accounts so we didn't...

@Osita - incidentally, I became curious to see if your claim about internet costs in Nigeria did indeed change the economics of my example significantly. As you did not provide those costs, I dug around. Apparently the cheapest solution is an internet cafe where one can go online for 20 minutes, for 50 Naira. The person who is infringing, wherever they are from, is posting once per day on average. A post of that nature can easily be done in 20 minutes. So this scenario would cost 1500 Naira...

Yes - the person knows. He promised to follow the rules and give correct attribution, and instead, he started posting art that is much more difficult to trace, and attributing it as his own.

Vulnerabilities in a platform, any platform, allow people so inclined and who can figure it out, the opportunity to take advantage. Regardless of who, or where they are, it's the holes in the system that are being taken advantage of that need addressing. All the rest just results in distraction-and usually hard feelings, too IMO.
