something needs to be done about this spam, theres more and more every day across multiple communities, by now i spend more time reporting all of it then i do browsing communities
as much as it might suck for legit posters but perhaps some form of moderation needs to be added to communities before posts show up as the spam seems to slowly get out of hand
We're currently doing what we can with the tools and time available to us. However, these spammers are indeed trickier than ones in the past, so they are exacting methods that can leave some of our moderation 'powers' weakened. I'll take a look through now and see what I can squash. Feel free and let me know what communities you want me to clean up (anyone else is welcome to as well).
the Diablo 3 community seems to be getting hit the hardest for whatever reason, i mean all communities have spam here and there, but i just scrolled down the most recent posts for D3 and it was nothing but spam
just looking at that amount of spam i definitely feel bad for you guys having to clean that mess up
iluiou, rokhmk, dsvbcvb are a couple in the EVE and Star Citizen sections I have just come across.
i feel like i need to apologize if im actually reporting the same spam repeatedly, it literally all looks the same so im slowly starting to lose track, lol
There is so much spam, I probably went through a thousand accounts this morning alone >_<
Just let me know the Communities and I'll jump in and get em all.
@RiceEyes - Thanks for the info! Although I could not "Role Playing Sci-fi" and "PC (Platform)" wouldn't load at the time. However, most of them disappeared when I went through just Real Time Battle RPG. It had a lot of varied names.
Most of the time you'll just see 1-4 users posting the same thing over and over.
Got em, thanks!
cheers, thanks for cleaning that mess up, lol
oh great theres new spam already, the 3 i just came across
fgjoietjhioeth, awwaeawea33aaa, daadaw3a3a3a
no rest for the wicked i suppose, i'm so sorry Verun
Got those ones too! Thanks!
Sadly there is no point in deleting all these post as I have been doing it for a while, some were there over a year till I finally posted a while ago about it, still accounts are still being made and the spam starts all over again, you need to start IP banning or changing up the way you can make an account. I just made a new account since I've had one for a while and forgot what the process was, it was only:
To add to this discussion so far I've noticed that it is mostly the popular games that are getting hit with spam the most, there might be a few here and there that will have some that are not so popular but. TF2, cs:go, Unturned, Grim Dawn, D3, Archeage, TERA, Black Desert, and so on have been spammed hard.
More accounts that are spamming.
