DBH Artists - Fraud Voting

posted by DBHstaff • 4 years ago

Hello Artist Community,

Here at DBH we believe in fairness and genuine love of all things art. That said we have been running a series of sophisticated checks on voting.
We discovered several designs with many fraud votes and those votes have been removed.
So if you’re an artist eager to win or a fan of an artist who, you think you are helping by giving them fraud votes then please be aware that we can see all voting.
We run checks because we want fairness and we value the genuine votes people take the time to make.

Thanks for your time on this matter. If you notice some of your votes vanishing now you know why. Tell Grandma to step away from the computer for a while, those fraud votes won’t do you any favors.

if votes and comments disappear again after having been there for a day or so, does that mean somone i dont even know has frauded a vote for me and therefor it got deleted? or did someone maybe just dislike the design later?
(for i didnt tell anyone of my friends about this submission and iam sure there was none of them to push things fraudulently).

Lovableimmu – read the above post, votes were removed because of fraud voting. Voting has ended because Round 2 has ended, round 3 begins today.

Zhan – Fraud votes will be removed usually every 24 hours.

Hi DBH, just want to share this. I have fellow artists at the same office using one IP address thou we have our different computers. We joined online contest based on Australia and the staff was confused of our entries why do we have three accounts but one IP address. So I explained. Is it the same with this, using IP address to determine where the votes came from? I’m just asking because some of my votes came from my officemates, who always give support when I asked them to vote using their own DBH accounts. But where using one IP address. :)

I’m curious what kind of triggers there are to identify fraudulent vote.
