By in Persona Paper

I am genuinely impressed by the vigilance of the site owners

One of the most important aspects of a site such as Persona Paper is the policing of the site. I would imagine that it could be a formidable task to monitor the material submitted as the site grows, but absolutely necessary to avoid plagiarism or offensive material that could easily bring the site into disrepute.

Of course the area encompasses far more than such obvious abuse. Yesterday I was notified that someone had posted on my profile, which I immediately read. It turned out to be a message from someone claiming to have a special interest in me and offering a contact email.

This was obviously spam and I ignored it, although I could not decide whether I should report the matter. I was reminded today when arthurchappell referred to the same spam message, so I looked back with the intention of reporting it after all.

To my surprise the message had already been deleted. I cannot over stress how impressed I am with the rapid response in which the site has dealt with this problem.

Yes, I am impressed with how they are running the site too. They also answer questions quickly, ones made in posts and also ones through the contact link. With owners like this, the site is going to grow and be able to weather hardships.

This is a rare quality these days and deserves support from the members.

A long time online friend of mine who is also on this site got the same message, and wrote an article about it as well. I am glad to hear that it has bene dealt with so fast. I can not express enough my agreement with you in that the makings of a good earning site is the ever vigilant monitoring by the creators and staff.

Exactly, this has been the downfall of many sites in the past and no doubt will be so for many others to come.

Bravo! to the site owner but I have a question how those coin are converted to dollars.

Koalemos wrote on January 20, 2015, 8:18 AM

If you look at the upper left of the page you will see the current exchange rate, which is 0.0015 per coin at present. This can also be confirmed on the My Bank page, which shows the coins and the current value.

I have been a member of sites before that tried to keep out the troublesome countries, but this seldom worked. As odd as it is, they got the most income from those who were the most troublesome.

I'm glad we handled it quickly for everyone. I know that they snuck in within a 4 hour window though, so I think less than a 12 hour turn around time of fixing such a problem is pretty good.

I think that the time frame involved was superb and you certainly deserve a round of applause for the rapid response.

It is good to hear that this place is well checked. There are a lot of creeps out there.

Yes, the internet seems to breed such types too regularly.

I too Barry, and thanks so much for the comment on my Day Crockett post

I always like to add something if the opportunity arises Johnny.

How kind mate lol take care

This is quite probably true because the extra activity generates a high volume of advertising views, but also tends to generate a bad reputation for the site which eventually deters advertising.

This is indeed one of the best things about this site. If you ever use Contact form to report anything to MaeLou or elitecodex , they respond very quickly by email too.

soupdragon wrote on January 21, 2015, 2:28 AM

Yes, this is very impressive. The site owners seem to be really on the ball, which is reassuring

Hollyhocks100 wrote on January 21, 2015, 3:47 AM

Yes, they are certainly on the ball, and interacting with us too.#MaeLou left a congratulations message on one of my posts yesterday when I announced my daughter was expecting a baby girl. How nice was that ?

Koalemos wrote on January 21, 2015, 6:44 PM

I have also seen Maeloo around a few times.

They are from Bubblews so saw first hand what not to do when it comes to issues, they learned on the job you might say. :)

Koalemos wrote on January 22, 2015, 6:26 AM

Bubblews still appears to apply apathy in response to plagiarism, which makes no sense at all to me.

bleekley wrote on January 23, 2015, 8:25 PM

I agree. A sensible rule at PP is no duplicate content, not even your own. That simplifies automatically screening out blatant plagiarism. And if users are vigilant about reporting such spam posts as you mentioned, maybe they won't proliferate.

Koalemos wrote on January 24, 2015, 6:08 AM

That is the mistake that Bubblews made, there was no apparent control over cheating and spam, which allowed the practice to flourish.
