Duplicate accounts and reputation score

TradingView is devoted to bringing more transparency and accountability to discussions of the financial markets on the web. This is why – as per our house rules – registering with multiple accounts is strictly prohibited. Recently our system caught a number of members actively using duplicate accounts to artificially inflate the reputation score of their original accounts through follows, likes and comments.

As we previously announced, we will ban the duplicates permanently and also the original accounts get banned for a substantial period and we make sizable corrections to their reputation scores. This practice is given extra attention to ensure that members who use fake accounts to obtain an improper advantage will not succeed.

TradingView has always been a place where everyone can earn reputation points on equal and fair terms, through publishing great ideas and engaging the community. We are committed to making sure it stays that way.
