When flagging an activity, the choices are currently Activity Was In A Vehicle, Wrong Activity Type, or Bad GPS Data. There should also be a choice for Duplicate Activity. I see lots of people recording the same activity on multiple devices and posting all of them as if they were different. In some cases the start and finish times are basically the same, and in other cases they are staggered but still overlapping as if the person is deliberately trying to game the system to rack up more miles than they have actually ridden.

I second the motion on this. Strava needs to have an algorithm set to not allow duplicate activities to be posted by users from different devices like bike comp, garmin watch, fitbit, etc.

I have been flagging users who are always double posting and I don't see Strava doing anything about it. This creates misrepresentation on the athelete's data, making it seem that they are doing a certain mileage every week when it is exactly half of it and also creates false data on the leaderboards.

I hope Strava will reconsider this motion. Thank you.

Agreed it makes a mess of local hero stats in addition to weekly leader boards.
