Review Accounts

Every week early on during payday we review accounts that have connected a payment method in the past week. That happens on the admin dashboard (if you're not logged in as an admin you should get a bare-bones 404). The purpose here is to filter out accounts that are likely to represent thieves and terrorists.

We also review 1.0 Payout applications.

What makes an account likely to represent a thief or a terrorist? Eventually we'll need to develop algorithms to help us decide, but at our scale we are depending on humans to decide. You are that human!

Things to check:

See The Delpan Incident for examples of accounts that definitely represented thieves.

Make a ticket in violations for each payday titled “Review Gratipay NNN,” and keep track of any review discussion and decisions there. Cross-link the violations ticket to the public payday ticket.
