Someone's just gone through and added the tag to all the

Seems like someone previously went through and removed all of those tags.

Thought I should bring this to meta's attention.

    No, there isn't disagreement...someone basically spammed a bunch of inappropriate edits by adding minecraft to pocket minecraft questions

    Definitely not the way it's supposed to work; they're two different games.

    Yes, @DanielPalamarchuk seems to have done this. And in bulk too.

  • I brought this to the attention of chat right around the same time you posted this. The situation has been dealt with.

I have reverted all the retagging done by this user. The serial upvoting script should catch his expanded privileges (he got super upvoted just a short while ago), and reverse the upvotes, thereby removing his ability to retag questions.

I spent some time while I was at reviewing and fixing some of the questions, too, so they should be a bit neater.

Still definitely not something that should be done, but the end result is (slightly) higher quality content.

  • @jeffreylin_ Doing some digging, there's lots of correlation between the two users. Almost certainly a sockpuppet.

    @fbuecekert Similar names do not mean they are sock puppets. Is there anything to back this up? (I'm not attacking you, I'm just curious as to how it's "almost certainly" a sock puppet

  • @Retrosaur As we discussed in chat, there are points you can look at and match up to draw a pretty accurate conclusion. I'm not going to go into details, but between the vote reversal and some other data points, I am quite confident that there's some shenanigans between those users.

  • @Retrosaur The gap between "Your sister/mum/missus going and upvoting your questions out of love" and "Your dummy account blindly upvoting your questions because that's its job" still doesn't mean good votes.

  • The serial upvoting has happened on Board and Card Games as well as History. The difference being two or three votes doesn't count for much, whereas all of a user's answers (where all > 10) can have quite an impact.
