Horrible deception case of plagiarism inside our platform.

in Steem Schools2 months ago


A fortnight ago the @open-theworld community announced a nature contest with substantial prizes of 100 steems.

Today the prizewinners were revealed and looking at the entries they had made, I can safely say that the community itself encourages and rewards plagiarism.

Here are the five entries of the five winners, with exactly the same text and terribly similar images.

First prize:

Second prize:

Third prize

Fifth prize

And there are still some strange coincidences, the five winners have been inactive on Steemit for three years now, and have come back to participate in the competition:

What's more, four of them made their entries back-to-back on the same day. All highly suspicious.

This is not the first time this has happened. Three months ago they organised another nature photography competition and the prizes were given to entries of very poor quality, and now they have edited the entry of the prizes making it unverifiable.



El caso más escandaloso de plagio que he visto en Steemit. Espero se tomen medidas severas.

Si, es mas escandalosi

This is really horrible.Thanks you so much you that you responded to my comment and invest your time and efforts to find that plagiarism.

Thanks for Your comment

Saludos, permítanme disculparme por todo lo que les afectó el mal manejo de la comunidad #opentheworld. Yo me desempeñé como moderador de la misma, y a pesar de denunciar ante el administrador y otros moderadores nunca fue tomada en cuenta mi información. Por esto y otras razones, apoyo al 100% este post y denuncia y ya presenté tanto en privado vía WhatsApp y con un post en mi blog mi renuncia como moderador y retiro todo tipo de apoyo a esa comunidad. Mi renuncia a OpentheWorld.


Thank you for being attentive and presenting this deception case. It is obvious that the accounts likely belong to one or couple of users and they would like to keep their Steem but use the contest as attraction of ordinary users.

Hey @xaviduran

I have already started working against the moderator.

This contest is organized from your account.

What excuse are you going to say?

Do you hire moderators? Did you sell the rol of moderator to another cheater?

Will they return the stolen money?

This unbelievable. You must clarify everything. This behavior lasts for months ago.

En @open-theworld se organiza otro "concurso" de "naturaleza"donde se repartirán 150 steems entre 3 amigos. Qué vergüenza. Pido vuesra expulsión de la plataforma.

Queremos una captura de pantalla de la devolución de los 100 steems que fraudulentamente se han repartido antes de que volváis a organizar otro concurso.
Os estáis riendo de mucha gente y de la plataforma Steem.

Simplemente se burlan de todos los creadores de contenido real y simplemente promueven el plagio.

Totalmente. Todo por unos cuantos steems...desprestigian la Comunidad Steemit.
