I'm starting a new community blog next week. To get it of to a good start I will have a writing competition and now I'm a bit concerned over cheating.
The winner is the one who writes the post with the highest reading (most read) and rating by other readers. The rating is for everyone to see through WP-PostRatings but the number is withheld.
So now I'm interested in good tips to avoid cheaters. Such as paticipants e-mail-spamming with the link to the competition entry.
Another way to cheat could be homemade scripts but that could be covered by monitoring the statistics.
So, any help is appreciated.
