THE WINNER OF THE APPS4CITIES ONLINE VOTING IS KNOWN

1563 users took part in the online voting for Apps4Cities Challenge, a contest between city services which use open data sources. Another 356 users were blocked as fake by IT-department of Civic Network OPORA.

The project “DIRECTLY” won the online voting.

Несправжні користувачі «проголосували» 384 рази (кожен користувач міг віддати голос за 3 проекти). Щоб зареєструватися на сайті конкурсу і проголосувати, реальні люди вказують свій e-mail. Псевдо-користувачі реєструвались на голосуванні через механічно згенеровані у великій кількості тимчасові електронні скриньки-десятихвилинки. Для таких маніпуляцій використовуються спеціальні інтернет-ресурси. Через тимчасові електронні скриньки  такі ресурси імітують реальних інтернет-користувачів і у цей спосіб «накручують» голоси за певні проекти.
