Massive point jumps on Memrise

User mkam453 has obtained 20 million points on the Russian course Top 10,000 Words Part 2
in the past month. This is very unlikely without using a bot, I am certain this user is cheating. I have noticed this happening on multiple courses lately.

Does the beta version have some sort of glitch that allows massive exploitation of the website? At the end of the day it’s only fake points that don’t mean anything, but the competitive aspect of the website is a really fun thing that encourages me to do better. When users do this they completely destroy something the website creators have worked so hard to foster. Very discouraging. Hope it can be looked into.

Hi @11142,

We will investigate and take appropriate actions if necessary. Unfortunately we won’t be able to disclose the outcome of our decision.

Best wishes,
Memrise team.
