Read the community guidelines. Most things are permitted. Please be nice. Betting is better than arguing.
How do you handle markets created by those users? There's this one that can be resolved now:
@egroj South Africa had 5 cases (https://ourworldindata.org/monkeypox) and the description said that it was supposed to resolve YES with 10,000 or more
Banned and 0'd balance of @MisterBusiness and @outsidertrader4cb6 as well as other accounts for abusing bonuses and defrauding users.
Just banned @OnesimusMalatji for spam. He had repeated warnings and continued to make spammy, unresolvable statements as markets without elaborating.
Thread of everyone banned for Fraud for manipulating new user bonuses, see: https://help.manifold.markets/community-guidelines#1be0ff580da94473853dee6d80ba5261
@akj0mfai for serious fraud. Have set their portfolio value to M$500 (new balance is negative to account for investment value).
Created 9 sub-accounts to funnel mana into their main.
@JesseCharlie for serious fraud. Have set their portfolio value to M$500 (new balance is negative to account for investment value).
They already deleted over 20 sub-accounts to try and hide their tracks.
@Cutie for serious fraud. Have set their portfolio value to M$2000 (new balance is negative to account for investment value).
Created a ton of accounts to funnel mana into their main using referrals.
They have some real referrals and markets which got a lot of traders so I am leaving some mana that would have come from that. Removed over M$13,000 mana from their balance to offset fraudulent gains.
@Reidog for serious fraud. Have set their portfolio value to M$500 (new balance is negative to account for investment value).
I have been nice for this first punishment wave. May start outright banning users in the future.
If any of you want to explain why you felt the need to create new account to funnel mana into your mains that we could use to improve our product (eg. u ran out of mana almost straight away after signing up and wanted to play more), please let me know.
@DavidChee6822 oops accidentally made this on my test account, ironic haha. Was definitely using it to test if setting user balances to negative was working correctly and not to boost my own profit numbers ^^
New ban. One person with 10 accounts including @WoWZERs @jojothebanker @Richflexgg and 7 others. All accounts have been banned from posting new content and have had their balances set to 0.
