Yes, none too soon. xD But now YOMURO and me will receive an email for each report. Chris has implemented this today. So that should help a little more. However, there will always be some smart kids for cheating at the last minute.

Things that could be done:

1) See if there are ways to improve the software.
2) Automated corrections when cheaters are removed.
3) At least 50 tests required to enter competitions.
4) Removing the contestant from the competition without a ban, when in doubt.

The site is unfortunately losing to the cheaters. :(
