@sarahw well, I guess a congratulation to the new job is in order :-) Let’s start off by asking you to remove the following users. Those are left over from Witrig and eSelekt. The only purpose those users served was to boost the Witrig guides. No harm if they stay, but their guides etc., still link directly to eSelekt. So this would really just be a cleanup operation

@sarahw - I just spied this 30,000 followers makes you an Internet “celebrity,” says UK ad regulator

I wonder how many of us can be called celebrities? Maybe that might be a way to get more involvement.

2 of her answers go to the same site, and it looks like a spammer from what I see. I think she may have been mentioned before as someone that may be waiting until they are established. The 3rd hangs my tool I use to check it.

Hi @sarahw ,

Just wondering if these two users are one in the same?

Seems strange to answer a question with spam and get it up voted shortly afterwards.

I have deleted the answer

https://www.ifixit.com/User/3155193/Sam+... answerer

https://www.ifixit.com/User/About/315519... upvoter

More unrelated to the two above

Note how close their ID numbers are.

And here's the Q/A How to Uninstall CleanMyMac

@sarahw - Is there any way we can leverage a cookie within the users Web browser to help prevent multiple accounts being created??

Hi @jayeff and @danj thank you for finding those posts! I took them down and banned them. We are looking into your solution @danj and will get back to you as soon as we can.

@sarahw - Thanks!

by

Hi @danj ! I just received a reply from our Dev team regarding your inquiry. Although it’s a good idea, we are unable to fulfill it because of the possibility that there might actually be different users like if two people share a computer. Thank you for your input and we appreciate all your help.

by

@sarahw - Creating the account is the key within the timed window.

Are you likely to see two people sharing the same system make new user accounts one after the other?

Set a timer once the first account is made so let's say 48 hours need to pass before you can create another account. Using different ID wouldn't be interfered with.
