Wanna know what I’m juiced about today?
We’re undertaking changing the behind-the-scenes to our system to help us understand our members by IP address and the relationship by IP address that each author has to each other. :)
Example: This past Sunday, someone we’ll call David from Canada created 15 accounts with us, all under bogus names and information, but the one thing that was constant was his IP address.
What’s even more fun will be when we can chart the IP addresses matched authors to begin to understand who is related to each other and who is gaming the system vs. legitimate multiple authors sent in from services like SubmitYourArticle.com.
Eventually, I can see a time where we will be able to rank our trust in an author based on their IP address. Just another tool to help us understand or authenticate who each author is or might really be.
