Often, when you help us to identify a cheater, we reward you with free gems as a thank you for helping us.
We define cheating in our competition as someone:
- Buying votes externally to our website (such as with the use of vote farms etc)
- Buying votes from our website and then refunding the money through PayPal/Stripe
- Creating multiple fake profiles in order to vote for an entry once from each profile
- Going against our rules
We always keep the identity of our users annonymous if we make contact with the user that is believed to be cheating.
When a suspected cheater is reported, we investigate the user and take appropriate action (such as banning their account).
