Gravatar III, a big thank you to our sitesupport

Last Update: December 14, 2019

SiteSupport is top. The problem has been solved, Thank You. We are very lucky to have such support here at Wealthy Affiliate.

I received good news from SiteSupport that a new rule has been established. Only 1 comment per person allowed on SiteComments. Here is what they told me.

Hi Taetske,

We wanted to let you know that we have made some adjustments to our SiteComments platform. When a comment is submitted we are now rejecting the comment if the WA member has already commented on the post (regardless if they use another Gravatar profile).

This means you should no longer see comments from the same WA member for the same post.

Good evening,

That is really good news.
If you allow me to say this, it would be good if you could finetune and not allow people who only use WA for earning money by making comments. These people do not socialize, never write posts and I am not sure but perhaps they do not even have a website.

Regards, Taetske

My first complaint to SiteSupport was on the 11th Nov and more than 35 messages were passed between us from that moment on. It was well worth the battle and I think it will improve the quality of the comments we receive as well.

Here is the first post I wrote about it.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/laparra1/blog/lovely-christm... it was followed by a second post.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/laparra1/blog/gravatar-ii-ch... in the comments I received, I was told by quite a few people it had also happened to them. I asked them to report this to SiteSupport.

Personally I have identified 4 people and I will keep an eye on them for sure. I hope peaceful times are back again and we can concentrate on our websites. A big Thank You to SiteSupport for putting things straight.

I see you've brought up another point that has gotten under my skin, too!

People who think that they can "make a living" using the SiteComment platform. They spend 99% of their online time leaving - mostly - low quality comments - in their hurried efforts to get paid for commenting.

And, the rest of their time might be (but not always) spent on their website - if they, indeed, have one!

Go get 'em, Taetske!

Good afternoon Jim,

As I said in my previous post I was feeling like Sherlock Holmes.
Now, as this problem has been solved I can go back to thinking about what to cook for the coming Christmas days.

This is a platform of integrity as intended by Carson and Kyle who have fought scammers at court, so it only makes sense that we as community members follow suit and keep the same tone :)

Good afternoon Paula,

Thank you for your comment. You have been here much longer than I have so you will have seen some things.
Anyhow, I am happy we got this new rule in place. I was getting tired of those comments made by 1 person pretending to be 4 people.

I like doing the site comments as I feel it helps me to better my site and learn some new information on different topics. Great work on this and we all thank you for taking the time to do so.

Good afternoon Douglas,

SiteComments is a very helpful tool that benefits all of us. We should use it in an honest way.

Yea I didn't know this until you made the post that you could make money doing the site comments. I get why people would take advantage of it but it needs to benefit both us and them then.

Most of the comments I got were from people who made no effort to read my post, let alone find something relevant to say. They all ended up in trash. I always left very thoughtful comments, even though many times it was challenging because I knew nothing about the subject matter. I stopped using site comments because it was more trouble than it was worth.

Good afternoon Hindy,

Thank you for your comment. I have faired quite well even if I had to do some editing along the way. I am rotating my posts to get new comments months later and it was going quite ok till I discovered this issue.
Now, when I think back I have accepted comments in the past from these people but at that time it was not so obvious

Your intervention has yielded results. You deserve WA whistle blower credits.
