Pocketcrowd Cheating…We Don’t Allow It!
Last late last month @pg4sqday via Twitter mentioned to @unbcedstudent, “I really hope not-the API in general opens a lot up for cheaters, I really hope #pocketcrowd doesn’t make cheating accessible.”
Well Pocketcrowd won’t allow cheating and we make all efforts to prevent abuse. If you think you see odd activity or suspect cheating is going on, let us know via Twitter or Facebook and we’ll look into immediately.
Here’s a personal example of how exact our future checkins feature is and how it works to prevent abusing the future checkins feature. Last week I went to the US Open Qualifiers in Flushing Meadows, Queens. I did a Pocketcrowd Future Checkin in the morning as I planned on arriving around 12:30pm. I was delayed and didn’t arrive until 1:30pm or so. I checked my Twitter stream and I was not checked in because my Future Checkin time had elapsed. Then I went ahead and did a Pocketcrowd check in and enjoyed some tennis.
People will always try to game or cheat a system. Unfortunately it’s the ugly side of human nature. If you see it let the Pocketcrowd team know via Twitter and we’ll do everything we can to stamp it out quickly.
