    You know the best best way to earn medals is by helping people? Oh not to forget medals mean nothing. They are only there to make you feel achieved after helping someine but guess what really counts? The help.

    No it is definitely not acceptable. But the user seems new to me. They might not know the rules. But anyway, the point is whenever you see this happening or any other breech in the CoC/TaC, kindly report it to mods. It's well written in the CoC that any form of medal gaming is not accepted.

    Medals, smart cents are here to encourage users to help more and more people and also get help from other users. It represents the level of user's activeness on the site. Like every society, OS community will also have some people who want to make their way out of cheating and forgery. To stop them like every other society we have moderators and ambassadors. But some how like every other society there is always be gonna some loop holes. So it requires a general involvement of every user in this. Whenever you find something suspicious, report it to the mods. They have appropriate tools which they can use to investigate the matter and take proper action. That's the best practical way I can suggest you to do.

    Just a brainstorm: If medal spamming is truly such a huge problem, can mods have a tool that helps them moderate the amount of medals coming to users? i.e they get notified when a user gets an abnormal amount of medals in a short span of time, which doesn't necessarily mean they're being medal spammed, but just for precaution the mods can moderate that through that tool..

    @Abhisar Check their medals and the posts they got medals on..if they've gotten 50+ from the same person, check their IP to see if it's the same person. If not, they could be doing it with someone else. Check that other person's medals, see if he gave him a lot of medals. You might also want to check a few of their posts they gave medals on.

    Since there are "thousands" of users, a mod can't just specifically target one user out of the entire batch… maybe the tool that moderates a specific number of abnormal amount of medals within a short span of time should notify mods. I think IP checking is going a bit too far and complex

    StackExchange in some ways is a lot better. There are rarely any spammers. Chat has a different space and doesn't come in between the Ask and Answer area. Much better! Moderators are allowed to be strict and simply kick the users out of the site. Signing up on that site can't be done in seconds. Lots of things to learn...

    @Abhisar Don't get me wrong or anything, I'm aware that mods are working very hard to making OS a great community therefore I don't have any complaints.. my idea was merely just a solution to the root cause of the problem.

    You can report the issue. Mods can see the reports later they come online.

    @Abhisar if you were in math chat yesterday there were 3 mods online we had to community ban rather just having a mod take care of it.

    There's no point in banning, the tools given to mods are not good enough to keep them out of the site they'll just keep coming back with a diff account, which is why some mods who knew this don't even bother about spams etc. Amistre made a point a few years ago, and the issue still haven't resolved.

    This question regarding the number and efficiency of Mods have been raised numerous times. Every mod here is working voluntarily and we are grateful for the time and effort they are putting. Let me sum up this, as a user we want you guys to come here, be polite, use your time to learn and teach something. We appreciate if you took a further moment to report any irregularities. That's it. Don't get yourself too much bothered in these stuff.

    A Medal Market, i dont even have to read the rest to know that this is correct, tbh openstudy already has all thats needed to make a quick filter in 7 to 11 hours that would prevent medal spam, for example... after a account gives a medal, and it will test the IP to see if theres any other accounts using that ip, if there is AND that account is what was medeled, then the account locks and says "medal spamming is not tolerated" truth be told this probably wouldnt be to difficult to actually do on openstudysbehalf considering the fact that openstudy has all the needed data already collected to determain if someone is medaling themselves, they could also do it by mac address... (incase someone uses a script to change their IP, this way it also locks the computer out from openstudy) Of course first it will be a warning saying do it again then a suspension will occur, incase a new user doesnt know that... and lets say theres a timeout for the warning of something like a week to a month :P

    Well, \(Brain~Says\) \(\small\rm\color{green}{@}\) Like the "best response" button, design "medal cancel" button too... and this is accessible only for Mods, Ambys and QH of OS Admin Board. \(\small\rm\color{green}{@}\) As soon as the medal is provided to an user, it should be providing a notification to the Ambys or Mods present at the moment. @Jaynator495 , But this eyes read it, sorry ! \(\small\rm\color{green}{@}\) Another method is to Provide a "medal cancel" button on the profiles created along with the smartscore button., only to be accessed by the OS admin. \(\small\rm\color{green}{Will~These~help~?}\)

    how about yes we are aware that users can have two accounts open at one time (I do it a lot) and the "will give medals" <-- plural has been proven did you know that if you have two tabs of the same question open, you can give 1 medal to two different people? many problems, few solutions but always ask devs for better mod tools first

    Finally finished reading this whole thread...spent around 15 minutes doing so. I personally don't like seeing the trend of medal abuse with the whole "new account" getup either, but there isn't much users can really do about it except kindly telling the user about how it is against the rules. If the user persist, then yes, you can pm and report to a mod about it. Newer users don't actually read all the CoC (I honestly was one of those users) but they do usually fix their mistakes if told in a kind matter. There will always be users that go against the CoC voluntarily (I myself was included when I was new on my first week here, rebel! Haha.). Anyways, point is, I agree that there should be some measures to prevent that, at least. The medal feature was created for a positive reason (also encourages helpers in a way), but I do agree that there are some issues.

    I tried adding this into my extension, gave it a test run... even in ALPHA it was abused, so it was locked up under a 250 uncrackable code, (mostly because i dont want to waste the work i put in it... :P)
