Title: Remember Some Time ago... (Case Closed)
Post by: Nyran on November 16, 2012, 06:42:22 AM
When the Spam-Bots came to our lands to spread their evil words?

Well guess what guys? There's like, 3 or two of them that have come. Since I saw Sparkx online, I figured this was a good a time as any to post this

Looking at some of these profiles, I've been noticing very odd symbols and characters. These are characters I cannot replicate on this 3DS.

Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Tetsu on November 18, 2012, 03:55:34 AM
Sorry, Sparkx, but there are more. It's a group posting in FRENCH. I'm starting to lose my temper with these guys.
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Nyran on November 18, 2012, 04:40:02 AM
I translated some of it, and it is indeed completely random spam.
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: . on November 18, 2012, 07:17:06 AM
I just got the spam bot banned and deleted the posts.

Also, please do NOT comment on the spam bots' posts so I can do things faster (instead of having to delete your posts too). If you want to do something, just use the report button. Thanks.
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Nyran on November 18, 2012, 07:19:10 AM
Sorry. I was unaware of how deleting works. I was of the belief that you just deleted each page and that was it. I didn't know you also had to take time to delete replies
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Star Magician on November 18, 2012, 07:20:48 AM
I can delete my posts if you want lol.

Are you trying to cause more problems? I see you deleting my posts without any means and also other members much earlier.

Anyway, if the spam bots do somehow get back, please use the report button. Thank you for being awesome Merpeople and we couldn't do it without you.  :50:

Case closed.

I deleted alot of our posts, yes. Our arguments aren't necessary in random topics.

And the spambots did come back, someone reported two more. I banned them and removed the posts... They keep coming. Thanks to whomever reported them.

Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Epic Lepricorn on November 20, 2012, 12:52:40 AM
So, If I see one, I'm supposed to use the report button?
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on November 20, 2012, 02:02:54 AM
Yessir. And we do the rest.
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: CHEESE4ALL on November 20, 2012, 02:50:25 AM
I'm not sure exactly what a spam not is.  Er, would that -what appears to be a Polish speaking - post on "Geomancy"  in the GS4 site be one?  If so do I need to go back and report it?
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Nyran on November 20, 2012, 02:57:18 AM
Anything like that, yes. Weird or random or stupid posts that make no sense/have weird links that you shouldn't click on. Report their posts and/or profiles.
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: CHEESE4ALL on November 20, 2012, 03:01:52 AM
Okay will do.




There are several posts by this Gypeexhip that would appear to be giving advice on, er, well... things not very appropriate for this website (I don't know if I'm allowed to even say the thing I think it might be talking about)    Uh anywho, I've reported several(at least six),  but there might be more. Should I look for those and report them, or do you guys got it covered?    I don't mind helping out.
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Will on November 20, 2012, 04:37:59 AM
just report the spammy bots.

the getting really anoying.
but hey thanks for your help. :D
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on November 20, 2012, 04:38:54 AM
So you reported them? Someone must have responded to your reports, because they are gone. Yeah, if they are advertising a product of some sort, that's just spam. Unless it's Neptune advertising his car wash.
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Nyran on November 20, 2012, 04:39:46 AM
The one that links to the broken wiki?
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Halcyonic Legend on November 20, 2012, 04:41:46 AM

Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Maegra on November 20, 2012, 04:49:08 AM
That would be me. I'm currently cleaning up all the spam threads and closing all the bot accounts.
Title: Re: Remember Some Time ago...
Post by: Nyran on November 20, 2012, 04:53:43 AM
