The my3P community believes people are basically honest. However there are times when all of us make mistakes. Sometimes knowingly sometimes not.
This is a guideline to tell you what we expect and spells out the benefits of being honest and the hazzards of not.
This is a new site and sometimes it does wonky things. It gives out too many points, it does not delete points when it should, and the list goes on....
If you find a mistake when our site is giving out too many points or is in some way enabling people to benefit when they don't deserve to - Let us know and you will be rewarded. It might be points or it might something else but either way.... honesty pays!
DISHONESTY DOES NOT
3P DOES NOT have a "3 strikes you're out" policy. Instead we have a "cheat - and you LOSE ALL YOUR POINTS" policy*.
If there is evidence that someone is intentionally cheating or defrauding the community - we crack down hard and fast. We erase ALL their points. We then send an email explaining why we did it. Sometime the evidence is not right or the penalty is just too harsh for what was actually done so people are invited to come back to us and make their case.
But regardless of being caught or not, the bottom line is... dishonesty will make you feel 'stink' and it just aint worth it.
* NOTE: This may seem harsh but 3P is a small team and we like to focus on improving the site for everyone instead not worrying about a small number of users who are being mischievious, dishonest, or just a bit sneaky. So by having a harsh policy - it gives us more time to do good things instead of spending time trying to stop members from doing bad things.
However, if you have done something that is not by the rules, and you want to be pardoned - fess up now before we find out and we promise you will be treated fairly.
