    Maybe there could be a spam bot? If someone was spamming, someone could tag the bot and the bot would ban the user from making a post, until a moderator looks into it. To avoid people misusing this, people could only tag the bot once they get the rank gold or higher.

    I didn't realize you could link more than 1 name per email account here. The problem is I personally keep several legit email accts. Personal email/proper name (resumes)/ dedicated to spam/ work. I can imagine that someone wanting to make accounts for spamming would add tons more.

    Can a pdf lead to a virus? I never thought of that.

    But I meant 1 person open the thread, not the link. At least these people are too stupid to name most of the threads something that is game-appropriate.

    The observation of that it was a PDF makes me extremely scared. I accidentally clicked on one of the links and the first ones of the web address were something like science.mit.edu. I searched up the file again and it said on the internet page not found.

    I looked at the link (never clicked on it). It leads to a PDF file. I thought it needs to be a valid link if it's to earn through advertising.

    I don't like the idea of waiting to post- I think it would deter more legitimate players than spammers. If anything, I would say to pause the post for moderation?

    Or suggest that one person open it, tag the 3 mods, and no one else view it. Perhaps when our spamming friends see they're not getting anywhere, they'll give up.

    Maybe people could get an alert every time an account is made, so we can watch if that person spams, like how we would know if someone made a post.

    Spammers are looking to increase the Google PageRank of different URLs. Basically, if a lot of sites link to specific URLs, their rank on Google rises. Your ranking on Google is really important especially if you're a new business and trying to get new customers. If I'm some company trying to improve my ranking on Google I might pay a legitimate looking company saying they'll help out by reaching out to Google or somesuch. But what they'll actually do is spam your link on every forum on the internet.

    We're working on some things to prevent the spam in a more automated way.

    I believe spammers not only try to annoy us, but to gain profit. We can take it as a joke, but the guest in this forum?

    People spam to annoy other people, but what if we take it in as a joke? If he sees his spam not working, he might stop.

    That will be awesome if it can be implemented, I was thinking about delay time to post a new one after posted a thread. Currently delay is 30 secs, I imagine if the dev change it to 1 hour 🤔.
Working...
