Spam issue

  • If you remove their account, there's a good chance they will just create it again, possible on a different IP. Yesterday someone spammed the blog with over 10 accounts.

  • For those who report user name accounts, don't bother.

    The name you reported were actually already dealt with for hours before you even posted. Reporting names in a topic don't help.

    As with any spam, if you find a problematic post in the forums, please do a report clicking the triangle in the top right of any post.

    This is the best report you can do.

  • No let up in sight. After about 90 mins, I got almost 50 spam emails.

  • yeah. I just had to delete around 300 emails. Good thing i have them go into a separate folder

  • maybe temporarily disable tutorial making until a fix is found? i keep getting emails from them

  • the same problem still here (sorry for my bad english)

  • Either Scirra has stopped it, or I have (for myself) by going into my tutorial subscriptions and unchecking the broad categories (i.e. All English Tutorials).

    https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/subscriptions

    Tried it, got three tutspams before being able to finish this post. Hope it kicks in soon, i'm around 300 deep. Ah. Another two. Jeez louise.

  • Unsubscribe from Tutorial does not work for me

  • i'm setting up filters for individual users eg: auto delete all emails with the subject line 'strhrthrth has published a new English tutorial! - Scirra.com' this will stop some emails coming in.

  • It seems like not everyone is paying attention to what user's experience on unsubscribing has been.To repeat: unsubscribing from Tutorial does NOT work, does NOT work, does NOT work!

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • A restriction allowing a single account to only make one tutorial every x hours would help this issue somewhat.

  • Increasing the rep requirement would make it take longer for new spam accounts to be made

  • I'd suggest making a tutorial on how to use spam filters in your own email client but, well you know...

  • I'm so very f'ing tired of this spam for the tutorials. How do I get off this damn notification list for new tutorials? Are you ever going to do anything to resolve this?

  • Nervermind... saw the unsubscribe at the bottom of them. I hadn't opened them to look, but it was there... Ugh, this still needs to be resolved though. I like getting the notifications when they work.
