I was wondering how I was doing compared to the other twitter posters and noticed something horrible when I did so.  Most of the Twitter bounty hunters are using multiple accounts and I'm not talking just a few.  If you get a sec go out to the bounty section and find a Twitter bounty and start reading the tweets.  You will quickly notice there are only about 18 actual participants even though there are 3,000 in the spreadsheets.  This is actually a good way to find the multiple account violators as you can catch them in Twitter as they are probably smart to the bitcoin forum mod team cracking down on a mass scale.  Most are broken english with matching posts so its fairly easy to spot and feel confident about not falsely accusing anyone.

Is it possible or even a good idea to ban all newbie accounts from participating in any bounties.  Make it a site wide rule.  If this was added to an increase in merit for jr member to say 3 you may really smash these guys up for good.

I think it's not hard to stop a newbie with just one merit. Campaigns should probably limit the amount of engagement to twitter and facebook campaigns. Or they can raise the difficulty of the task. For example, there should be some like and comment in the hunter's article. This is not difficult, but if you have multiple accounts, you will feel the trouble and give up the fraud

I dont think it is a good idea. Dont think because i am a newbie then i dont accept with you.
For example:
Merit and rank on BCT is good for their Signature Campaign only. No more than nothing.

For other campaign as: Social, Content.... Newbie or JR can do it as a lengend. As you know, almost of member are newbie or jr now (I think it over 70% members of forum). What happend with they lost 70% advertising for their ICO? It really is not good ideal, The team will not accept it. They can leave their bounty in to other platform, it mean traffic for BCT maybe down.

For multi account, I think the BM should be harder in their manager.

...You will quickly notice there are only about 18 actual participants even though there are 3,000 in the spreadsheets....

Do you mean different twitter accounts with same/very similar tweets? If so, it's not a solid proof. When you have a bunch of non-english speaking guys doing dozens of bounties everyday - of course they'll be copy/pasting.

Plagiarism is bannable offence on this forum, not so much on twitter unfortunately.

I think it's best to follow the money in searching alt accounts/bots. I heard than on one occasion a thousands of bounty-hunting accounts were associated with one ETH address. That's insane.

Everything is possible, but forum admins don't run campaigns and do not interfere with their rules. As long as forum rules aren't broken - no one gets banned.
The real problem is that bounty campaigns are paying with their own tokens (created out of thin air) so they don't care too much about fighting bots/alts/spam -as there's no costs to them, so nothing to lose.
