    I have neither the software nor the analytical skills to submit comprehensive dossiers on anyone I may suspect of using an engine but occasionally I see a graph that skyrockets from a non-provisional 1100 to 1900 in one stroke. Am I wasting the Moderators' time if I alert them to these people? Input from anyone with experience in this field would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm like you. I'm totally clueless about the whole engines thing and stuff like that. I figure there's enough wonks and code monkeys doing this to take notice of the offenders and deal with them.

    What's wrong with alerting? Alert if it seems susp. to you. You're not to be the investigator.

    Wonks?

    OK, thanks guys, and sorry, I didn't realise the FAQs had been updated.

    I think on balance the answer is no. I can't supply supporting evidence, only circumstantial.

    Circumstantial evidence can lead to proof once investigated. Nothing wrong with submitting your suspicion via the Fair Play system.
