Bots / Scripters in Dutch II and IV

Hi Memrise admins,

Two scripters / bots appeared in the official Dutch courses the past two weeks
https://www.memrise.com/user/PaulGrancele7/
https://www.memrise.com/user/gullfoss/
and are generating ~ 1-3M points / day. On one hand, hats off to them for breaking the system. At the same time, it is a bit frustrating that rankings do not actually reflect people’s efforts to learn a new language. (Fun competition is less fun when someone cheats.)

Perhaps banning the users may be a bit much, but it is possible to reset their scores in the rankings to zero?

cheers

I’ll tag @MemriseSupport for you, they might have to look at those user’s profiles. FWIW, they don’t seem to be bots to me - you might have to consider the fact that there’s people who simply spent a tremendous amount of time learning … :slight_smile:
