    As we notice, bidders are continuing to surface that are on newbie griefing accounts here on Stratics. Since the ruling is that you are allowed to have multiple accounts based on this rule...

    Q. You may not use an alternative user account to promote or support your main user account in a way that implies you are more than one person or to evade disciplinary actions.

    This is causing items to go unsold. This is also causing a loss for buzz on the item - knowing young bidders are in fact bidding. It also creates a headache for the item owner as it's been seen that items are not selling, then a re-post of the item (headache) is not getting proper bidding (headache).

    I would highly encourage our community to post within their threads a clause that doesn't allow bids from young Stratics members without verification/confirmation of the bid being legitimate.
    I'm tired of pesky punks ruining the fun for me.

    Anyone have a better alternative or thoughts on how to rid Stratics of the newbie griefers?
    I love new people. I don't love bidding against one that has no intention to purchase the item but wants me to pay hundreds of mils more for the item.
