What is this thread about?
Over the past few weeks, there have been multiple cases of users abusing the pollen system; From self reacting multiple times to old messages on Discord, to like for like trading. After a lot of discussion on Discord and Discourse, the conclusion was made that having a transparent way of reporting malicious users was feasible. Hence, this thread has been created with the purpose of reporting users who might possibly be abusing pollen, by gaming cred. By having a single thread, we hope to have a clear, uncluttered, and organized way of reporting users. The goal is to be as transparent as possible, everyone can see who is reported.
1.One account per user policy
An user is not allowed to own and operate multiple accounts*
2.No reactions/likes trading allowed
Entering agreements with other users to like/react each other’s posts is not allowed. Neither is self-reacting.*
Reactions/Likes trading is defined by a pattern of 2 or more users mutually reacting to most or all of each other’s posts, regardless of the quality of the content.*
3. Bug use / Exploits / Manipulation
If you find a bug or exploit in the system, please report it immediately. Those using a bug or exploit to their advantage may risk account deactivation *
4. Breaking any of the decorum rules found here
In order to report a user, it is advised to adhere to the following template:
User to be reported: Provide Discord, Discourse and Github if applicable.
Date on which you noticed the potential user gaming cred:
Which rules are potential user breaking and how?: See the rules above.
Evidence you can provide to support your claim: Evidence could be in the form of screenshots or any other related media.
NOTE: It is required to have explicit and concise evidence that the user is gaming cred. Do not post if you do not have enough evidence! Be polite and never attack another user, even if they are breaking the rules. Stay polite and report the user in a constructive way.
Who decides if I am guilty?
The current process is that users can report potential gamers in a transparent way on this thread. The cases of these reported users can also be discussed by the community members in the pollen channel on Discord. Over the past weeks, we have tried involving the community at a large scale for sensitive matters like these. This has however, not worked out as it quickly became avery chaotic, heated debate, with everyone having different opinions on the matter. Hence, ultimately, the members of the Pollen DAO (@crisog @sem , @befitsandpiper, @Jasper, @luigy, @lkngtn and @Rayne decide whether a user is found guilty or not.
What if I am found guilty?
This is still up for debate, but the initial idea from discussions was to give malicious users the
Sus role. This serves as a sort of timeout, meaning that the user is excluded from distributions until proven innocent; Which can be done by appealing.
This thread is still evolving, rules can be modified, the template could be modified, it’s still up for debate.
Current list of de-activated users and the rules they broke:
