Title: Alt accounts/ Merit Farming. Please Tag
Post by: cabrakaned on September 07, 2018, 03:03:55 AM
Hello.
Recently i was going through some applications for a signature campaign and found a user transferring merits from one of his alt account to spam the signature campaign.

Linked accounts

2:- Dondon1234

Check the recent posts for both.

Both used this ETH address: 0x6a9b7240691be09fdda758739adccee0b37ce642

Link to post where dondon1234 sent 5 smerits to cheann20:- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4862272.msg45312512#msg45312512

He probably transferred merits because the campaign he was applying for (BQT signature campaign:- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4862272.0) needed some merits to join.

Please Tag both accounts.
Thanks.

I tagged both of these accounts.  You'll also notice that each sent the other the same positive trust.  This is a blatant attempt at manipulating both the merit and trust systems.

Thanks for tagging.
It seems that they have some more accounts linked.
I'll investigate a bit more into it to look that he/she don't have any alt accounts left to spam the campaigns anymore.
Thanks.

The accounts you found were the altaccounts of one person but they are not enrolling the multiple accounts in the same campaign but still the decision about tagging them is upto DT members so lets wait and see what will be the decision. :)

But next time use this thread  Known Alts of any-one - A User Generated List Mk III (2018 Q3) (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2544574.0) for reporting the altaccounts.

They are not spamming a single signature campaign but yet uaing if alt accounts is not allowed and can be treated as spamming. Account farming leads to spamming so it is better to keep this forum alts free.
Hope the DT will take a correct decision.
