Let us be vigilant

As I have mentioned in my previous article, our Persona Paper Community is growing.

We are now almost 1,100 members in this awesome online writing platform.

While I am aware on how the Administrators of this site screen new members, as we grow, there might be some who will emerge as violators, scammers, spammers, or manipulators.

What happened to B site might also crop up here. When that site was on its peak, manipulators stormed it. The Team of the B site introduced changes to control the said violators. Unfortunately, the control mechanism they introduced seemed to have backfired on them.

In order for our Persona Paper Community not to suffer the same fate with that of the B site, let us all be vigilant. Some might use Internet Robot or Web bot to do automated simple task in here like viewing their own article.

I'm pretty fearful of such things happening here as well. x___X I just want to be a part of a nice community one with honest people and feedback.

One good thing about this site is that I think the administrators have a firm grasp on what's happening (which comes from the "hands-on" approach they take) and would most likely stop any cheating and manipulation before it progressed to the level that it supposedly was (supposedly -- sorry, I'm not buying that line that "fraud" caused the payments to be canceled) "over there." Given that there's also an introduction required before you can "go live" in posting, that will most likely eliminate the plagiarism issue.

Everyone is worried about it. We can keep a vigil as you have rightly said and report of any suspicious activity. A sudden rise in views could be a parameter. I remember I used to report such things at Bubblews but they just ignored my reports and they are now paying for it.

I don't think that on Bubblews there were so many violators. Bubblews team made excuses in order not to pay users.

Agree. Hopefully, there will be no cheating or spamming or manipulating or "fraudulent activity" here. So far, all seems well. Persona Paper is a really nice community and the people I've encountered so far are all friendly and it would be bad if this site ends up like that other site.

All the serious users have to be vigilant. This is the only way to fight cheaters. On the other site people did not want to listen. When I wrote articles asking to report cheaters I receive comments saying that it's not to us to do the web police, that a like is always a like "who cares if it is from a cheater". I would love to publish the list of users who left those comments... where are they now?

Keep in mind that like exchanges are impossible here or will profit nothing, since people don't get paid for likes. Comments are paid either unless they are thoughtful one. That eliminates a lot of comment spam. For the rest, if we see abuse we can report it. This is a vigilant community.

Absolutely agree - B site - yes I know who that is, never coped with the spammers - I think PP is more vigilant but we all need to man the barricades to support them

The Bubblews management did not delete the accounts of scammers and spammers immediately despite Bubblers notified them.

I hope people use the site the way its supposed to be used and don't ruin it for everyone

It takes a lot to get through using bots and such here with elitecodex . He's a computer programmer and knows all of the tricks people try to pull.

As long as our members help point out plagiarists and spammers, we should find that there will not be too many problems here. Not to mention, I go through every post before actually paying out to check for problems and do not just automatically pay out to just anyone ;)

I just don't have the brain power to try and figure out how to try and beat the system. Those autobot things seem to be effective with me. I can not imagine trying to get around them. Why? It is only for a few cents. Some people will do anything to cheat the system.

Hello, I'm new to this type of site, so I'm unsure of what you're talking about regarding these other sites. I do blog, but this is my first experience with this type of site. I'm kind of excited about the whole experience though.

I want to build a long-lasting relationship. I prefer this site rather than B site because I believe that my efforts will not be wasted.

Yes, the staff on the other site were their own worst enemy and seemed to have had their collective heads in the sand to the scanners for too long. Then they implemented draconian style solutions and just destroyed the trust of so many of the community.

PeggyWds wrote on January 10, 2015, 7:15 PM

We can definitely help by reporting plagiarists if and when we spot them. I did plenty of that on the other site as well. Let's hope they shy away from here!

I haven't seen spammers here or maybe just because I have no enough time to go around. :)

It is heartening to read MaeLou's remarks on how things are run at this site. Good wind in your sails and God speed!
