    That rather extreme as current policy of removing reviews from store (user account banned if his review removed)

    Anyway, on the Store side, limiting the frequency of user change per device could prevent this kind of activity.
    It does seem to have some financial benefit otherwise people would not do it. Imagine app with last few reviews that are negative. You hardly find many customers who will purchase it, on the other hand if the is a similar app with good reviews it's probable that the customer will consider to buy it. I'm afraid that for one bad review (one purchase) the competitor may get hundreds of purchases of his own app

    Buying you own app is not that costly as money will be returned to you with payments (with some taxes off)

    Re: Developer multiple self reviews

    The easiest way to prevent multiple reviews is to identify submit action by phone IMEI number. It was Ovi Store architects big mistake to set uniqueness of reviews by username only.

    Yes, that is what I meant when writing "limiting the frequency of user change per device could prevent this kind of activity."
    While it may happen that I give/sell a device to someone else, it definitely does not happen every week (or even more often).

    It was Ovi Store architects
    Do you really think architects built the ovi store? I would argue it was more then likely butchers with cloven hooves for hands?
    Cheers,

    Re: Developer multiple self reviews

    If this is bad, for me even worse is other developers advertise their own applications in others developers applications:

    Re: Developer multiple self reviews

    Sorry, I not read well, your problem is my problem.

    But, maybe the Ovi Store (moderation) is the problem.

    Let's be real, Ovi receive by app, not matter what app. For Ovi is the same. .

    We are unable to verify if this claim is legit or comes from competing developer. Unless it says "Try my application instead at <link>", the moderators are unable to do anything with this review.

    Re: Developer multiple self reviews

    Hi Andrew.

    This is almost the same (ok dont have link):

    There is much better application in ovi store! It's called 's&m info'.
    helen.mperou make reviews in my 2 similar apps in the same hour, but make none in the much better application 's&m info'. Strange.

    If it is normal, if that's how the store works, I can not do anything.

    Thanks

    Yes, you can read about similar things in http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...e-self-reviews
    Perhaps your post will get merged to that thread.

    Which is indeed what I thought was appropriate and got it here.
