Isn’t it obvious some have 2 profiles to boost points on their main profile? Solved

    Hey all,

    To state it clearly and plainly, there is no proper way to boost your Ranking.

    Allow me to clarify;
    - Points are obtained by several actions in different quantities. To prevent misuse we currently limits a users' amount they can earn per day.
    - The amount rewarded and daily maximum can be found at "What activities reward me with points?" 
    - Points obtained from these activities are added to the users' "Ranking" and their "Wallet", these are two separate entities.
    - "Wallet" points can only be viewed by yourself.
    - "Wallet" points can be used for vouchers and send to other members.
    - "Wallet" points DO NOT affect your or the receiver's "Ranking" in any way.
    - "Ranking" points are the point shown next to your name and on your profile.

    In short, "Ranking" points cannot be boosted by multiple accounts. Sending "Wallet" points does not affect any ranking in any way.

    As for the possibility to cheat for vouchers, while this is technically true and possible, it requires A LOT of work. There is a maximum of 170 points earned per day for doing every kind of activity till the 'daily limit'.

    Boosting 1 account to 10.000 “Ranking” points requires at least 59 days due to the daily limit of 170 points. Getting a chosen answer will earn you 10 points up till a daily cap of 30 points. That’s still 140 points a member has to earn through other activities.

    Insights about the amount of “Wallet” points being transferred have shown us that it isn’t used that often at all. About 15 members have actively received the “Wallet” transfers, with small amounts in total.

    Long story short, members with high “Ranking” points have also contributed a lot. They deserve it.

    Having multiple accounts to help yourself earning the maximum amount of points a day will still take considerable time and effort into posting content. Therefore, we do not consider this cheating. As well as having multiple accounts on WeedPortal is perfectly acceptable. These individuals still have to follow our policies and keep the content related to growing or consuming herbs. (i.e. don't spam or harass.)

      Yes 100 percent they can. It would make sense to pass points around to pass points around to their dea friends. To aid in more seed purchases

    I've heard people say the exact same thing and I'm sure some might have more than 1 account. But that's pointless because there is a cap on points daily. I'm not sure why anyone would do that. As far as the F.B.I. is concerned I think they're to busy trying to stop terrorist than a person growing a few pot plants. Sure they could look into this site. He'll they can back into a countries defence system. I truly believe you have more to fear from your local police

     Personally, the points cause more drama than they're worth.

    Someone "cheats", someone else gets butthurt. Just not seeing the logic. Ok, Joe Shmuck gamed the Portal and has a million friggin points. Big deal. What did it cost me? Not a damned thing. Did I miss something? Are there only so many points available, and the more "they" get, the less that are available for you?

     For Christ's sake, I thought this was a forum for discussion, the sharing of knowledge and a love of growing. But apparently it's becoming a competition to see who can get the most points. At a penny a point, I'll send you a shiny new quarter if you'll get over the whole points drama.

    Points, gimme a break, people.

      I think the cheating is more about ranking than a discount on seeds. It’s petty really

    I agree. Very well said with most above. I’m not in fear of anything as I grow small amounts for personal consumption only and will always be that. Now for the folks that are doing million dollar operations I fear for. Lol gypsy nirvana isn’t wanted for seed dealing. He’s wanted because he holds the key to a lot of people doing large scale grow operations that are worthy of busting.

    The points thing is a complete joke...who frickin cares ! You can tell who's wanting to help fellow growers, and who might be in it for who knows what ! As far as the DEA/FBI, I can assure you that they have very smart computer geeks on staff, that could get in to WP or any other web site, at any time, and find out what ever they wanted to know. They have much bigger fish to fry IMO ! Happy growin
