Hello,

I have recently noticed a trend of unknown users who have seemingly never visited our location (Pixel Paradise Arcade in Angus, ON - Canada) editing details in our Arcade Tracker listing, the issues so far being:
- Listing the amount of leftover credits in machines as seen in walk-through videos of the arcade
- Wrong details about the types and regions of machines such as Daytona USA 2 and Silent Scope 2 being victims to this
- Games that simply do not exist here being added with random cryptic descriptions

I closely work with the owner of the establishment and I myself have an arcade machine on location, both of us update the listing under my username pretty quickly with new changes done to the place so it is completely unnecessary for others to attempt to find and add more information on games from our social media. I'm not sure what could be done to help prevent this sort of situation since the people behind these issues seem to have continuously done so to other places as well.

I searched the arcade listing and it says that Popcapfounder is behind all this.
Updating arcade locations with misinformation and vandalising existing information is against the site rules.
I think he's heading for a warning right now.
I am only here when it's a arcade that needs to be updated.
I am not here if it's not.

Can anyone from staff contain this individual? He proceeded to do more wrong edits to the listing after the post above, probably won't get the message.

Turns out this doesn't stop people editing arcades, they've still been doing it and are still adding comments?

It seems banning only prevents people from posting on the forums from what I heard/seen.

Should there be a -3 level for him? That actually restricts not just the forum but also that and everything else?
