Re: Like farming for developers

[ Edited ]

Can anyone explain to me why every weekend some Indian guy tries to abuse the like system.

There seems to be no European moderator on weekends so these things go unnoticed for hours.

 

What is the point?

 

The only thing I can think of is that they have an interview and this is something to show the interviewer.

Having seen the long lines stretching around the block for computer jobs in India I can understand anything that sets you apart is worth trying.

 

But it's annoying to read and if you have to lie and cheat to get a job you deserve all the bad karma life brings you!

 

@worriers stop being a complete **bleep**!

I've changed the title in the hope that an interviewer will see this and to dissuade any further Indians from doing this in future.

Although lately it seems to be mostly those from India, it has varied from other regions in the past.

In most cases it relates back to Developer rewards of water bottles, hoodies and other stuff based on a points system for activity in the forum, posts, likes etc. And, as with life in general, there are those who always feel the need to cheat to get ahead, and most of those are caught and throttled down in some way.

 

The thing to do when you notice this is use the Report Inappropriate Content link under that poster's name and inform the moderators of the suspected "likes abuse" by that user. It's also commonly known around here as "water bottling". So let the mods know. They have been very good at taking action.

@slashkyle lol

 

@jsanders this is exactly what I do do but as stated there seems to be no European mod on Saturdays and it took six hours to remove when it happened last week. In fact I asked for him to be banned mid last week when he was posting rubbish and duplicate posts.

 

I got a free water-bottle just for showing my phone in the high street a few weeks ago, it's really not worth going to all the hassle of setting up duplicate accounts for, believe me. :-)

Yea but what's not worth it for you, is worth it for others.

 

There are moderators on duty most all the time, not all. So, if a 'water bottler' developer is caught six hours late, so be it, he's still caught. The forum looks a mess for that time period, but they've done a good job responding to alerts to those characters and acting quickly.

Chronos, it took you 52 minutes to move this to the correct board. This is not admissible !
