Today I found out a poster was using two accounts on my forum and on The Forum Wheel. This isn't the first time this has happened, but in this instance I discovered that Hova and Maestro are the same person. It's actually not that hard for admins to identify this. Some people think it's a smart idea to just double up and exploit the system. It sucks for him that he isn't such a maestro at basic networking. Both of his accounts are now banned. I would hope that if Ken wants to discourage these behaviours he'll do the same on this main site. After managing forums for dozens of years you start to notice the behaviours different posters often exhibit. Even if somebody manages to circumvent it, it often isn't so hard to put two and two together. However, posters who do wish to cheat the system often use a browser called Opera Mini. If you're a site owner and you notice this it's understandable if you thought that the poster might just be using your forum on a phone. Do not be fooled. Posters sometimes use this as a free VPN to manage multiple accounts and thus earn more money. It isn't foolproof though. Nonetheless, as a safeguard I recommend that all site owners block the browser. It isn't that hard to do with some PHP, and the browser simply won't be able to access your forum anymore. Not many people use Opera Mini so I think it's a good trade-off. Those who are just using it without ulterior motives will just have to use a different browser. The Forum Wheel's a nice place. Is it worth breaking the terms of service for some extra credits? You'll probably be found out sooner or later and you might lose the extra credits anyway. Don't be stupid.
