YES! But they fail miserably. We have many algorithms, security measures and resources dedicated to finding the people who are trying to game the voting. We do not reveal all of the things we look for as giving anyone insight makes them search other ways. We CAN tell you, many have tried and thought they have gotten away with it, but those projects never get the grant. As per the Competition Rules, the use of invalid voting procurement methods – the use of vote acquisition or online vote exchange platforms – is prohibited. Those who are caught using such tactics will be reviewed and may result in disqualification from this and future Competitions. These types of voting procurement methods are against the spirit of the STORYHIVE program and community.
