Hello. This is Whosfan, global K-POP fandom platform.
We announce follow up measures we took related to the previously announced abnormal voting activities for the '30th Hanteo Music Awards 2022'.
After conducting a thorough investigation using our Whosfan Clean Bot System, we found that 3 IPs ( '149.***.***.11', '49.***.**.20', '103.***.**.6') illegally took part in the voting for the 'Artist of the Year Main Prize' and the '2nd Global Artist Award' vote, after accessing the system abnormally using various accounts.
These acts are in violation of Whosfan's policies, and since it affects many users who are rightfully participating in the votes, we took the following measures.
- We suspended a total of 81,854 accounts so far along with Za*****aphics, fa*****099, fa*****861, <u*****</u>, and chl*****r171 whom took part in the voting illegally and created accounts abnormally.
- We took away and deleted all the ticket votes the suspended accounts used or earned. Therefore, there were changes in the number of current votes for the 'Artist of the Year Main Prize' and the '2nd Global Artist Award'.
If by any chance you experienced inconvenience due to the above measures, such as a normally created account or earned ticket vote being suspended by mistake, please use the 'Submit a request' category to let us know, so that the person in charge can check the data and help have it restored.
Whosfan plans to continuously monitor activities using our Whosfan Clean Bot System so that not only members, but the whole K-Pop industry can vote and take part in events in a fair environment, and we will take active response measures to illegal or abnormal activities.
We ask for your cooperation so that we can all build a healthy and enjoyable K-Pop culture.
