While being on gg for about a week now I've noticed a lot of other giffgaffers that just seem to copy posts for the sake of getting kudos or solving questions, I think it's really annoying and one of the things that ruin the gg community!

What do you lot think ?

It's dead annoying! You'll spend a while on a quality and specific answer but notice there's about 10 copied and pasted or one-word answers there already! It's turned into a forum for the computer bodffins now I think :/

You accused quite a few of us of doing that yet we all replied with I minute of the op. people take longer to type a fuller detailed reply or thier connection is slow.
It's only really after 4/5 mind that you could say that.

There are a lot of duplicate posts and while this is very annoying, we can't be 100% sure they have copied.

 

It can take some people a little longer to type the same (well pretty much the same) thing and so it looks like it's been copied.

 

But others are blatently obvious that they have been copied as it's the same word for word and was definitely posted long enough after the original post.  As long as these aren't being kudoed then just ignore them.

 

All you can do really is ignore it. Unless you are sure you can spot 'kudos gaming' then you can report it Smiley Happy

Relax , we have ecuators on these forums and they keep a loook out but if the problem of copying posts consists by the same person they will have points deducted from payback so its useless for them
