    Default Seriously, what's up with all the spam threads?

    I love this place, but these spam / ad threads are making it harder to pick out legit conversations. I'd almost be willing to live with the vB catchpa while posting, just to see these things go away.

    Eh, this is what happens when you have people make money from spam. They built spambots that can beat out regular methods of blocking. Luckily our filters still catch a good 80-90% of the crap and keep that from becoming members or even posting.

    Trust me, I've already discussed the odds and ability to travel to the individuals home and work that make this bots and napalm the hell out of their lives just because of their inconvenience with @FlashD .

    Every night the spam bots come and leave their little golden nuggets for us as gifts. Most are taken care of by the mods, and I do a clean sweep in the morning, but if you get to the forum before I've had a chance (or if I've had a work thing to rush off to) then there may be a few of them still around.

    You might be willing to live with it, but a majority of captcha systems have already been broken and are about as useful as a chocolate fireguard regardless of if it's set for registration or for posting since the bots can be loaded with software to get around them.

    Best you can do is just report the spam when you see it. And it will get picked up and removed as quickly as possible.

    Back when I used to be pretty active in the forum I also noticed that & I've once spoken with some members on chat about those, but it seems that despite the efforts some of those spam bots/threads get past the preliminary filters, but not for long as the mods & admins handle them personally.

    After some time I got used to it & I could filter spam threads by merely examining the title & looking at the section where the thread is posted.

    As @1nterest1ng mentioned, you could report violations in the forums & the mods/admins will personally take care of them.

    Yes, please. Report the spam, or mention the mod of the section in the thread (for some mods it works better than the report system). I know I can't be mentioned without breaking the system, but many folks get around that by quoting me in the thread. But the report also works for me too.

    So that explains it!
    I've always had a problem mentioning you, it always gave me a certain code but now I know what it means

    It's not just that, when there's a report it goes to everyone. So if you report something in Yoko's section or Ranshiin's section, I get it and vice versa (and so does the site admins). XD So they get old quick. Especially when you have the spam bots profiled some.

    Well, damn.. Now I feel bad. I only just started reporting spam threads, thinking it may make it easier for you guys. I didn't realize I was spamming everyone in the process. 0_0
    I might just try and @ people and find some sort of round about way for you then.

    Nah... Report it

    Some people might miss it etc.

    It's what you're technically supposed to do.

    Hmm, will do. Still, knowing what I do now. I can't help but feel bad that I'm spamming you guys in the process.

    I would probably complain too if my inbox was spammed too. :P

    My Rule of Thumb when reporting is if it is a spam bot i just Report 1 post not all of them that would be tidious and my reasoning is SPAM BOT. Or if it a singular action then I report SPAM!

    Default Re: Seriously, what's up with all the spam threads?

    And the nice thing, when I get to the threads, I can do a "delete as spam" action, which not only deletes, but also bans the user and deletes every post and thread that they've ever made. I go through the forums, and the trash bin forum daily and do that on all the spam threads, so even if a single thread by the spammer was deleted by a mod, I'll clean up everything they've ever posted (and perma-ban them).

    lol It's not that bad, imo. Besides it let's the site admins know what's up too, in case someone can't get to it. Like say, when I come up on my future travel dates; sure BA can handle the General Art section and Eris has the Misc section, but someone is gonna have to watch the Western/Non-Japanese section. That someone will most likely be a site admin, as they have powers over the whole site. So having a report sent out still helps.

    Besides, the way I see it is that we signed up for all annoyances when we asked to be staff (especially from the moment of day 1 being a probie mod). That includes the reports too. XD I believe that if I receive too many reports, than I'm not doing my job well enough to keep things orderly. But I don't mind the recent influx that I've received either, because I can explain it with my sleep schedule/work schedule change. Normally I can catch the spam bots just as they submit their post (usually after midnight to early morning). Now I have to wait until I wake up to see the spam. XD

    Give me that power mang. The only thing I pretty much do when I'm here is 5-point spam ban bots and report their threads. I wish I could just insta-delete them and permaban them.
    Also remove the 60 second report countdown. >:O

    lol No. I'm not calling anyone out. Besides that's another issue and off-topic at that. (Again, not pointing fingers. People are people, and people can't be tied down 100% to the internet all the time)
     
    Otherwise Flash would have us all tied down here, never to escape! (J/K Flash. ;P)

    You should have it to some extent already, especially the "delete as spam" option. ',:l Or maybe I've been away from probie life too long.

    Actually not sure how the full perma-ban/delete all option of it is set permission-wise, but I'll take a look, see if there's a way.

    Please give me mod powers and I will steadfastly ban these spammers. I have only been here for a few days and they have me absolutely apoplectic.

    In the interim, I have a suggestion for site staff. In order to create an account, a real email address (non-anonymous) should be required. That will help keep these idiots from making so many accounts.
