The Artwiculate web site now allows you to authenticate with Twitter but this seems to only let you:
- Delete incorrect entries
- Easily access to your profile
I would like to request that voting requires an authentication in this manner.
I know that several people are voting for themselves multiple times to get better "results" and the creation of multiple Twitter accounts would allow this to continue to happen.
However, after voting is closed and the entry's scores are revealed, could we also reveal the voters?
For example, an entry might look like:
82pts This is a really clever entry
RT x 5; Votes @abc @def @ghi
This way, everyone can see if people are fake voting up their tweets or if real players are involved in high scoring tweets.
It's an unfortunate reality that people (who should really just get a life) will self-vote their own entries right up into the top 20 - or recently even top 5 and winner spots!
Regular players will soon recognise a plethora of made-up voters appearing under these "winners" and hopefully the cheater will give up.
What are people's thoughts?
