Flag multiple activities

A user has seemingly repeated the same bicycle commute over and over and marked each activity as a run (if she's legitimately breaking world records on her way to work, my apologies). As a result, she holds records on a lot of segments in my area. I've flagged the activities but each time I do, they're simply replaced by her next fastest time, which is just as ridiculous. Is there some way of removing all of these activities from segments?

  • They may not know that this is happening.  It is most likely just that they have their default activity as a "run" so no matter what they load it gets listed as a run instead of a ride.  A lot of people never really look at the program, they just let their activities auto-sync from something else like Garmin Connect or whatever so may never see that they are taking the KOM. 

    Have you tried commenting on one or two of their activities and asking that they change it to a "ride" or to let them know that they are supposed to list them as rides when they load their data?

  • same problem I have, I have flagged 100+ activities from 2 different people in one day who keep doing this, am sick and tired of it not being able to just report these people. Have contacted them but they dont give a rats ass.

    also it seems strava does not seem to give a rats ass

  • I've been facing a similar issue with an E-biker on my commute route. I've flagged loads of rides and strava doesn't seem to do anything.

  • James, let me guess. This person was not wearing any heartrate monitor or cadence sensor to mask her fake. I think everybody without one of them should be removed and not included in any list.

  • James, you can visit the user's page to see the list of activities, and access/flag them from there. That'll be a bit faster than doing it over and over from the segment page.

    However, in either case, it seems that Strava has put a limit to the number of activities that you can flag (10 per day?), so you'll quickly run into that limit. You can't even clean out a segment like https://www.strava.com/segments/3278841 where the top 14 are all obviously by car.

    One imagines that a new restriction like this came about in response to some kind of abuse (that I can't imagine at the moment), but it adds yet another difficulty for those passionate about Strava who want to help the community by keeping data clean....

  • Came here to voice my similar frustrations. Every time I travel to populated areas I'm amazed at how poorly I perform on segments. Dig into them a little, and low and behold, there are HUNDREDS of performances that are in vehicle or not tagged correctly. I'm an avid runner, so I frequently run into this with cyclists. It's quite easy to identify someone riding 40+ miles at faster than world record mile pace. However, I'm finding that if I attempt to flag these 'runs', I'm locked out of my ability to do so after a short while. 

    The area I live in is small in comparison with a very active Strava community. You can take pride in segments because the data is pretty clean, and it takes a certain level of self-policing to keep it that way. 

    An algorithm could easily mass flag bike rides coded as runs, but Strava hasn't taken that step either. What's the point of segments anymore if Strava won't police, and won't let the users do it either?

  • Putting a limit on flags per day just prevents people who actually care to try and help keep data valid from being able to do so.  This should be undone.  I believe far more people are doing good than bad when they flag activities.

    We are doing work on behalf of Strava to keep one of the most important features relevant, why prevent us?

  • Greg: Couldn’t have said it better. It’s the other reason I gave up trying to police segments altogether. Having a repeat offender re-take a CR after every flag I put on his activities, only to then be banned from flagging more cheaters for 24 hours was infuriating.

    The first reason I gave up? There’s just WAY too many cheaters on Strava.

    In a perfect world where cheating was very rare, then sure, flagging would be at high risk of being abused. But with the way Strava is currently setup, the entire system actively encourages cheating while deterring anyone from trying to do anything about it.

  • Clearly Strava doesn't care to weigh in on this issue, further displaying their apathy. I'm not very good with coding, but I'm sure I could figure out how to automatically remove all sub-3:30 miles (sub-1:30 half mile etc) from running segments.

  • The continued building of the Strava community is going be stunted if segment results are dubious and sustained bad data creation (or cheating) are not taken seriously. Training a machine learning model to flag out-of-this-world run performances would be an exciting project for the passionate engineers at Strava. Even simpler, take an approach along the lines of what Connor suggests immediately above. 

    This is not a hard problem to make headway on. A solution doesn't have to be perfect to make progress, but the lack of progress on this issue in the last year is disappointing.

    Flagging content is temporarily disabled. Please try again later.

  • Here’s a good example of Strava’s automatic flagging hard at work:

    https://www.strava.com/activities/259789356/segments/60032954846

    This segment is part of a 5k that’s run on an airport runway, but people evidently start Strava while on an actual airplane. Strava happily obliges, granting them a course record for “running” at a casual pace of 33s/mi.

  • There are tons of examples like this, Phong.  Here's a fun one....  a man named Lloyd registered on Strava as a female (long ago reported to Strava but ignored), getting bicycle QOMs in an airplane:  https://www.strava.com/activities/2092754763#52770186579

  • our annoyance is perpetual misrecording by e-MTB riders who seem to enjoy KOM collecting on the most technical climbs.  Flagging them is tiresome so most have given up.

    send a message to Strava by giving up and cancelling your membership. hit them where it hurts $$$ as Strava couldnt care less about the issue and is slowly becoming irrelevent for athletes.
