Users Creating Inactive Profiles

TappedOut forum

Posted on May 1, 2018, 3:59 p.m. by HARDsofty

I've noticed upvotes on some of my decks from users creating inactive profiles.

Is this a common occurrence?

I don't want to get flagged, since I am an active user.

It just seems as though people are creating profiles solely to upvote. That's all.

I go to profiles that have no decks and little to no activity.

they could have private decks or whatever, maybe they are just lurkers, if you link i can investigate suspicious voting

Cuttlefish7 joined a week ago, looked at decks, and made up votes. Not sure about any private decks of that user.

Just giving you one i think is suspicious. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't know.

I'll look into more when I get back home.

I try to push the publicity for my decks as much as I can, and often get upvotes from similar users. I don't think this is suspicious at all. When I first joined tappedout, I pretty much just used it to look at decks from other users without necessarily creating any of my own. I don't see why this would be a problem unless people are creating fake accounts to upvote their own decks. IMO, not having "activity" is no reason to suspect someone of doing shady things.

If anyone would like to make a fake profile to upvote my decks, you are welcome to! Lol

I use tappedout to look up decks similar to what I'm trying to make to get ideas. I'm new to MTG so I don't know old cards so if I want to make an edh deck that's eldrazi, looking at eldrazi decks help me find older cards that work well in the deck. I like to save/organize the decks in folders, but this site makes you up vote to save to a folder. So I up vote and save decks to help me plan my own. Sorry if that's suspicious!
