I was assuming it was the same thing. He's dropped into the 170's since the clean up. 


Too bad for Ragni and his reputation on PA: he had positive reviews from Windhawk, Rivertree or Tzsimay - who I won't suspect from being part of a conspiracy of cheaters!

Agreed, there's a couple of people I like guesting on this one so I gave it a listen but its pretty nondescript.

If it was him...well, I've never listened to his music, but despite some good reviewers on there singing his praises, this sort of sh*t just makes me want to dismiss him altogether, especially if it's throwing a whole bunch of other artists under the bus to get more attention.

I had a little "fun" with him seen below to which he did not comment...BTW, he was commenting on OUR album in a 3rd person's thread strangely.

1.It's the same person, not a bunch of friends.
2.He gives one star ratings to many bands which are in the top 20 albums of the year (the same bands more or less with every profile), in order for Marco Ragni to be no1 and then post a screenshot in his facebook page. And that has unfortunately already happened.

Is it against the rules to have a bunch of friends join and vote up your albums? Sounds like a legit and useful stategy to me. Have there been rules written out about this stuff? I'd love to read the details if so.

at least a warning and a clean up, although most of his 5 stars are submitted by "members" that have joined ProgArchives during June 2018... that says it all.

Not an easy case to deal with, I'm afraid to say, as he's something of a Scarlet Pimpernel ("We seek him here, we seek him there, [they] seek him everywhere. Is he in heaven? Is he in hell? That damned, elusive Pimpernel." But all ratings gone and took some other steps, and may get more drastic/ aggressive in time, but will have to stay vigilant as bad pennies sometimes keep popping up despite one's most valiant efforts.

Αnd the "Marco Ragni" guy saga continues. 
A profile made today, just to screw up all the ratings of the first 20.

http://www.progarchives.com/Collaborators.asp?id=64646

He also posts and boasts about being "no1 in Progarchives" in his "Marco Ragni" facebook page.

^ Thanks, will investigate.

EDIT: Yeah, even the one who claimed to be a Japanese man from Osaka was the Italian. One might have been a friend, but all gone. Thanks again.
