trying to understand why Samsung provide a service like global step challenge and then allow cheats to dominate the board every month.. it's not rocket science that if someone dies 200000 steps a day they are cheating or if on average they have done 2 steps a second , every second eithout sleep since the challenge opened they are cheating. why don't Samsung care about this and stop it ? it puts a lot of people off using the service
I calculated the number of steps the top user was taking each day to how many steps I have to take to walk roughly a mile. For me it takes about 2,100 steps to go a mile. If I were walking at the same rate as the top user I'd have to walk over 90 miles a day. Impossible.
With that being said I don't really care. I walk anywhere from 300,000 to 500,000 steps a month depending on the time of year. Don't walk as much in the cold winter months.
This is my story, I started to use this app about 20 days ago. I never thought that there would be cheaters in the app. I was really exited about using it because I thought that I had a chance to be in the top 10 at least because I knew I was going tk travel to Greece for 10 days at which I was going to walk for many hours straight which I did. I ended up walking for 6 to 8 hours straight nonstop and my record of steps in one day is
30,000 steps. I felt really proud about myself because abp ut 8 days before the competition ended, I already had the 200,000 steps done. But I was nowhere near the top 10 and today, 3 days away and back home, I have 268 000 steps total and I am going down on the list. Your comment was in 2017 and I am now in 2018 doing my best. And the top 1 has almost 4 million steps. I am not a person that does a lot of exercice so at first I thought that I was just too weak and/or I am nothing co.pared to other people. But I started to make calculations like you and I realized that there was no way to possibly get those many steps so tbey must be cheating. I don't know why Samsung allows that to happen but as long as there is evidence of my own record in the app, I'll always be satisfied. I know what I did and I suffered a lot of pain walking, right know I can't feel my right toe due to all the walking. I am proud of myself, if they want to have their names at the top of the list, they can but I will use the app and I will literally forget that they are even on the least. They can cheat a machine but they can't cheat a human and if they care about recognition, they got it but for being cheaters because know one believes them.
First, congratulations on your walking. I have done close to 400000 steps in a month and I know how that feels. Both exhilarating and tired feet. I, due to house and dog sittingfor a friend, have fallen way off my normal pace this month. But, the feet are healing and I'm looking forward to next month. Pick a few friends who typically walk in your range of steps/mo and challenge them to a burst challenge ... It's fun and at least u both benefit from the actual exercise.
Keep up the good work and improve your health, cheaters cheat,, haters hate, and egomaniacs need to see their name in lights. I prefer to be honest, love people and stay true to myself
Congrats to Blackcat!
The winner is...
3.607.628 steps in 30 days = 5.010 steps EVERY HOUR, 24 hours a day. No sleep, no brake...
Dear Samsung-Staff: You have no idea against cheaters?
Today is the first day of the Global Challange for Feb. I just checked the rankings and one chap Mehmet Turkeyy already has, as of today 170000 steps. Hats off to him...he's really a funny guy
Same a-hole at it again. ~100 000 steps in about 9 hours. Who does he think he is kidding
