I think that you shoudn't be able to have the word giffgaff in your account name, and this will stop people calling themselves giffgaff and pretending to be staff.
Very simple and will be effective.
What do you think?.
Alternatively, if giffgaff wont do this, at least tell people when they join that only acconts with a gg symbol next to it are official.
giffgaff, staff and anything else that could be seen as official staff such as agent should be banned form normal members...
giffgaff ahve made accounts like this such as giffgaff team http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/55 to post this http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Welcome-and-News/Forum-guidelines-please-read-first/td-p/85
however whats stopping someone doing what was done last week again. so i think they should ban this use in community names, and anyway why would someone call themselves giffgaff
That giffgaffteam account if official needs to have a gg symbol next to it!
It's very missleading as I would still think it's an un-official account.
at least its done by giffgaff,a nd not some dodgy persont targeting nebies for their details
But who says its an official account?
The only reason I know it is... Is because the thread mentioned was edited by clairekav
It STILL needs a gg sysmbol next to it regardless
i know, good point about the symbol
but if they wont stop people aming 'giffgaff' accounts than at least tell people that only accounts with a gg symbol next to it are official
Exactly, A symbol should be the offical stamp of approval.
I do like the idea but I personally was tinkering with the idea of creating an account with the term giffgaff in the user name... Not to confuse people but simply because of branding..
I would give you kudos to the idea but this would hinder that route..,If I chose to use go down that road anyway.
then do it now before it hopefully gets stopped
and btw are you doing it to get peopels passwords lol
Just thought id bump this up, to try and get this 10 kudos so it gets considered.
