Report a bot/spammer thread.

Post by adventure_of_link » Fri Aug 19, 2011 4:44 pm

Simple. Just paste a link to a potentially offending profile, individual post, and/or thread containing the bot/spammer and I will take care of it. If you can't link an individual post, at least link the thread and give the appropriate page number(s) where the posts are.

Keep in mind that when replying to a spammer's post, you are only abusing Google and other search engines, and you may be placed on a temp ban if it gets excessive. If a spammer is posting in an already existing thread, just report it here and carry on with the thread as if the spammer wasn't there.

Thank you :)

I don't like banning for no reason or lack of evidence here, but a quick google search shows it's been B& on other forums; spam posts are unknown, since most of the boards block searches and/or viewing posts/profiles from users for guests..

Gone all the same. :)

It was the type of posts made by the account that prompted the report. Necroposting with one-line off-topic posts followed by a link to a webstore is pretty unambiguous. :]

If you like, I'll provide some post examples in the future.

AoL: they are gone because I took care of it.

As SparroHawc stated, it was one liner posts with spam links lines at the end.

I'm fairly sure we get next to no bots, we're still using Nach's anti-bot measures, and I disabled spidering for the boards, so the few idiots who do spam don't do much good, because Google, etc. doesn't see the boards.

Here in the near future I'm going to get in touch with Jerremy about running Snes9x completely as was previously discussed, and we will finally see a move to phpBB3, hopefully host our own code/repository, etc. Site facelift, the works.

I just need a few more life things to simmer the fuck down so I can focus on the site.

I'm willing to take on the role of site administration as well, if need be. :)
Snes9x FAQs | Forum Rules
What operating system are you using? 32 or 64bit? Version of Snes9x? Is the text at the bottom of the window white when you load the game?
These suggestions are usually the solution to your issue!

Gotcha. :) thanks for nailing the bot, and I nailed it further (set a custom rank, deactivated the account, etc).

and I'm looking forward to the new changes to Snes9X's website myself..
