Weku is a community and members of a community look out for one another. In a community such as WeKu when people try to game the system by plagiarizing, spamming or scamming it hurts us all by draining the reward pool. This includes scams like excessive upvoting of your own comments and other such behavior. Let's face it, we're all here to make the most of the opportunities that are here, but, as in other aspects of life, there is a right way and wrong way to do it. We're all adults and we know right from wrong.
WeKu-Busters works very hard to make WeKu a safe and plagiarism-free environment, but they can't do the job all by themselves. That says a lot about how widespread this problem has become! In a perfect world Busters wouldn't even be necessary, but we don't live in a perfect world. In a world that was even just good, Busters would be able to keep up with the scammers... that says a lot of what WeKu has become, a haven for scammers and it's going to take all of us to make this problem go away.
Here are a couple of examples of how bad it's gotten (these are just from the past couple of days)
This guy stole a contest entry for the current #gratefulvibes contest and re-entered it under his own name. He either isn't too bright, or very dishonest- probably a combination of the two. (thanks to @paradise-found for catching it)
@real-team-weku... Seriously??? (thanks to jlufer for this catch)
It doesn't take a lot of effort to help out. Nobody expects you to spend hours scouring the feed looking for bad actors. But if you should see something that looks suspicious send it to Weku-Busters on Discord and they will check it out. Some telltale signs are photos without sources, or text that is worded too professionally. This isn't to say that we don't have some talented writers on the platform, but if it looks suspicious let Busters check it out. Or you can check it here yourself...
If we all work together we can make WeKu a better and safer place to post. Most of us work very hard on our posts and are honest... there's no reason for dishonest people to profit from the hard work of others. Thank you for your help.
