Hy members, i think it‘s a shame that people could get community reward points for posting useless things in the forum like a smiley or something else. We should enable a admin only for proofing posts. So that it is impossible to get points for doing nothing. We should act asap. Sincerly, bitsurfer

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:...

Don't worry, we're on top of it, and we have the ability behind the scenes to remove activity points when appropriate (for example, for one word, or single emoji posts). Definitely feel free to report those, and they're being reviewed in the background for deletion. I totally appreciate your leadership here!

This will help to create a good community who share similar vision as of Narrative and grow with it.

I appreciate your concern Bitsurfer but from what I have seen its few and far between the smily faces and small comments (maybe they have already been deleted) but not a problem yet maybe in the future. but its nice to get new users even if its a smily face! on board at the moment the comments have been from the same users like you, me, Rush, Byan, Dias, Akshay.

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.

In the meanwhile, the bid on Inside Blogging has been run and won by fake identities (at 60k...) of the owner of BLOG. I wonder what should I do. Congratulate him?

Well, if they truly do pay the 60k? Then yes. And if they don't, as we expect? In a few days it'll be back up for auction again.

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. Other bidders understandably stop bidding when faced with this sort of scenario because otherwise they will pay more for a niche that the person bidding up across from them probably doesn't intend...

If the person does indeed pay 60k for the Niche I'd posit that they are serious.

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

As @Vico Biscotti says, and I'll add, Just because the person (s) has the money to pay the bid, doesn't guarantee anything about the persons' intent.

Should we make any assumptions about intent until or unless the Niche is paid or not paid?

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.

Hi @David Dreezer To clarify, this person's actions has already raised serious flags, would still warrant a close eye, even if bid is paid, that's all.

I don't think this individual intends to pay. @Vico Biscotti , yours is not the only niche he bid on and won. He's targeted multiple niches, including one that was being bid on by a member of Narrative staff, @Rosemary . https://www.narrative.org/hq/auction/9197106484215445 This type of behavior is clearly intended to be disruptive and nothing else. He targeted several niches being bid on by another user, with a rep of 59, named Shane Andis. This Narrator is fairly new to the platform but...

Thanks for the reply, @MOLLY O . It helps to hear from you, and we all know you need time. I'm just worried that without human intervention, malevolent behavior can have a long life, and do damages in the meanwhile. We need a safe and fair environment to publish and connect. Hope you reach that point. Good work.

@MOLLY O I'm not concerned with the speed of response: it was the weekend and this is the first work day dealing with the situation. I am concerned when it is suggested we should congratulate the troll if he pays for the niche. He shouldn't be able to get the niche at all, no matter how much he pays, because he cheated to get it. 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...

@Garden Gnome Publications , yes, he's doing that on several niches, I know. And yes, he's succeeding in demotivating people, like me, that's why his action already had an effect. I'm not going to invest, with this scenario, and this is what he wants. I may be overly prudent, but I'm not alone. I don't think it's a competitor. The guy was quiet until the appeal on his niche. Everything started there, immediately, as direct revenge to me and a few other users, first, then as a challenge to...

Must disagree also. Some people are serious about inflicting damage, not about nurturing the community. And as others said, he has basically been bidding on as many niches as he can, and also appealing all niches possible. Disrupting operations and pushing away real members. He's at an advantage now of picking whatever he wants to actually buy, and leave all others to rest. And I've seen genuine users outbid him and probably end up paying very high price. I'll post my suggestion in separate ...

Thank you @Bashar Abdullah - we have a duty to care for the people who have been impacted by this troll's vendetta. People have potentially been caused considerable extra expense, and others have decided not to buy niches they wanted. In the case of at least one person - I think he would have made an excellent niche owner: his dedication is already manifest... and I only mention him because he's the one I've talked with. There may be others. He is sitting it out now - he'll miss the niche he...

FYI - I'm processing scripts right now (they're called Recipes) on all replies that are a few words and add nothing to the conversation. As they are deleted, they take away double the points earned by the reply.
