HitExchange is based on mutual cooperation of members. It works
best when everyone follows the rules. But some people are always
tempted to cheat. As our first line of defense, new members are
evaluated and approved by our staff. Then our spider program monitors
them for compliance. Still, it's not enough.
One solution is to reward members for reporting cheaters.
Everyday our members browse through the member's directory to cast
their votes for Hot! Sites. They visit many sites in the process. If
they discover any abnormality, they can report it and collect rewards.
Such police-by-peers is the best deterrent against cheating.
The amount of reward varies. The first member to report on a
particular cheater receives 10 hit credits. The second and third each
receives 5 hit credits. Anyone else reporting on the same cheater
will receive no rewards.
|Who & When
The cheater must be an active member at the time of the report.
To check the status of a member, enter his/her account number into the
"Search" box in the Hot! Directory. The member's status will be
displayed on its profile page.
But if you don't know the account number, how do you obtain it?
Here is one method. Bring up the raw HTML code for the page where you
discovered the violation.Using the "Find" option, search for the
string "HitExchange.net" and the account number should be near.
To report it, you must use the Memo Desk page (login
first). Specify in your report the cheater's account number, the URL
where you observe the violation, and a description of the violation.
Please be specific, but do not reveal your identity. After we verify
the violation, your report will be forwarded the cheater.
