We find ourselves on the cusp of the final day of voting, and as a first-time participant in the Tron Hackathon, this phase is nothing short of exhilarating and nerve-wracking in equal measure.
Hats off to all the incredible community members who’ve shown their unwavering support by casting their votes.
As the countdown continues, I must admit, there are a few concerns on my mind regarding the voting process and how some projects are clearly exploiting them, but I promise to share them with you all a bit later. Right now, let’s focus on the excitement, energy, and enthusiasm that this voting process has brought to the forefront. It’s a testament to the vibrant and dynamic community Tron has, and I couldn’t be prouder to now be a part of it.
Let’s embrace these final moments of the hackathon voting process and eagerly anticipate what the future holds!
Glad to see there are many users aware of the problem I hope admins will notice and fix that problem as soon as possible too. On the other hand I share your excitement about the voting process friend. May the best ones win
Hey all, we are approaching towards the final voting phase. Thanks to all for your support and kudos to all the projects who have built some great projects this season.
We have built TronAssistant during the hackathon phase and have recently launched a product dashboard as well for more accessibility. It would be great if you could take out a few mins to look at our project.
The excitement during voting is non comparable and in as much as we seek for free and fair voting process we can’t also ignore the fact that bad actors will try to rig every election whether in this hackathon or voting for the next president of a country.
Yes thats the only hope.
I see a lot of bot accounts created in past one week and bombarded the forum with tons of messages to get TL 1. But the major issue here is they have not just voted for one project rather multiple projects(including ours) to behave like normal accounts. So its gonna be extremely tough figuring out which accounts are actual forum members and which are here only to vote and get away.
If the team has followed the voting process they should have realised that most of the bots were created in September and voted massively for one project. Then new bots were added as that project was losing the first spot. So it’s pretty easy to spot the one. All those fake accounts have voted for several projects, but eventually, only one project is gathering so many fake votes.
I think its about time those projects with fake votes are show the exit door. We cant continue to entertain such acts. The rules should be strict with it. And if possible owners of projects have to be given the opportunity to remove these fake votes as and when they get them.
Example if i am a project owner and i realised a vote is suspicious, i should be able to star that vote. It will not be visible to other project owners that u r staring fake votes.
At the end of everything those that looked unconcerned when they were getting fake votes are the culprits.
Hahaha def possible.
But this problem definitely needs attention of the larger audience and the admins as well. I do understand that hackathons are for building long term projects but at the same time we have to realise that with $125K at stake only by community voting there would be a lot of projects coming only to get this amounts by creating multiple accounts.
