Dear Webmaster

I really appreciate the fact that you have taken this move,I feel this is the first such website to have this negative feature. This will ensure a good processed articles,reviews,deals and videos

I strongly feel that you must introduce the negative points system for comments on articles.If a person gives the same comment for 2 different articles,then you must introduce it.In my articles comment,it has occurred that a person replied the same comment.

Hope you will look into this matter.

Hi Swetha,

Ya..I too have the same concern..and we have implemented something to stop it automatically..If you find such members doing malpractice, I request all the members to send the username and url by mail or message and leave rest on us...

Thanks Webmaster for implementing stricter rules. I hope this would stop the rush of posting whatever available content from anywhatsoever source without one's own inputs and in any way possible to earn points super fast than what normally it would take if the required details are provided.
I'm not sure though whether it would stop people from making thousand unanswered posts in forums as I see people posting in triple bulks to cover the negative points.
But if more such steps are taken, then I believe it'd benefit the site eventually in maintaining an overall standard of high quality that every such site aspires of.
As far as the above complaint is concerned I have also noticed this thing. For example, if I comment on an article like, "Very nice article, thank you, keep writing like this." and copy it and post it for 50 different articles with minor changes here or there, then it can earn 50 easy points. Unfortunately this practice is going on, diluting the positive impact that comments from fellow members does make to the efforts of the author. So dealing with this issue is also required.
Also I must add that some members are producing real quality contents, in articles and other things and even in the forum as well, so at the end of the day I'm quite sure that quality will prevail.
Thanks and Regards.

Thanx a lot webmaster for introducing this step as i was always concerned about people earning without hard work by just copy pasting from other forums and now due to negative points such people will fear to copy and post here.

Webmaster we all here are to work hard and earn money and at the same time make exposeknowledge a successful site so get we all get more benefits in future. I hope from now people doing true hard work here will be able to get more benefits.

Copying works by others is a clear violation of this site's guidelines. It would be better to remove such user from the system.

Members should be aware of the consequences of their actions in such sites as this. If "they" want to copy others work, then let it be. But, if caught then don't argue and live with its consequence.

According to me, copying in any form is a severe crime. This is a good step towards anti-plagiarism campaign. Thanks.

Similarly, severe action should be taken against those who act irresponsibly by copying the content, just rephrasing a word here and there and then publishing as though it has been produced by their own grey cells. Their points should be given back to those rightful owners,if they can be found. It is nice to get the points from the copycat, which will motivate the original content writer and also deter such thieves. Those who regularly do this practice should also be terminated from being in the community. They can be blacklisted (as done by the credit rating companies) and informed in other communities also, so that nobody would even think to copy again. Thanks.

All these are neat and clear and rewards those who really love to write.Copy work and repetition is a waste of precious time for the reader.

To WM: I have some concern about negative points.

If I reach 1000 points and was awarded the $3.00 bonus. But after several days, I found our that the points was deducted to my previous points which now brings to my total points below 1000. My question is does the $3.00 bonus be deducted too?

Hi joeldgreat,

Yes..Its depend upon the recent total points..

Thank you very much. I just reached my 1000 points and got the $3.00 bonus. I just hope that I can continue with this rate I'm doing right now as this is one of the easiest way to earn money as compared to the other article writing sites that I joined. Really, very easy to reached a thousand points here.

I want to know if the negative points system is still in effect? I ask this because when I entered forum for some help and thought of searching if a post with similar query exists first , I was bamboozled by all those questions right in front of my nose like do you know who invented this or do you know how to do that etc . I want to urge the webmaster to take necessary steps so that the habit of making these kind of post dies out and also see to it that old posts with similar useless content are deleted to make the forum a better experience for serious posters . Regards .

The shame is not ni not knowing , its in not trying to find out .

Closing this thread. as I guess no need to discus anymore and will be good for exposeknowledge.com and for our serious members.
