Dealing with spammers

  • Hi there,

    I was wondering why, but I received something like 30+ mails saying there is discount on bundle. Even after clic on unsubscribe, it was still coming. I don't think this is scam because all links was heading to "https://www.scirra.com/" so would be nice to check your script !

    See ya !

    Wrong section - should be posted in the Website Issues section.

    Also, a quick search would have shown you that it was a bug that has now been resolved by Tom.

  • good to know

  • So, we have now quite a lot of spammer problems here? Will admin do something to this soon?

  • These users are spamming your forums, making them unreadable.

  • I haven't seen it for a while, but you still have those "are you human" type things set up? Also, how about restricting sigs and posts with URLs in them until you've made a certain number of posts? It probably wouldn't stop some of the cleverer bots (or any spam account that has at least a minimal amount of human control), but it might help.

    I think thats a good Idea! make them work for it!

  • aw, spammers, dun they have anything better to do,

    or maybe they are bots.

  • Yeah! I've noticed alot of spam games on the 'hot games' page in the arcade at the moment! Maybe an administrator checking that out would be handy!

    Please elaborate rather than just making accusations.

    Mods check everything.

    If you suspect spam, just use the 'Report' link, whether in the forum or the Arcade.

    Okay, I'll be sure to do that in the future! Thank you for letting me know it was a problem! See you round!

    By the way, thanks to all the mods who make this a better forum!

  • I don't think every link users are going to share is a spam. But it definitely needs to be in control.
