Re: Spam bots strike back

I too would offer my services on that front, but if Shadow is doing it you probably don't need two people.

Re: Spam bots strike back

Tass, don't even XD You're so tied up in actually posting in the RP section that you don't have the time to pick through ALL OF THEM, every week. I highly suspect, as mentioned above, that Scruffy could do it, and Shadow, well, he already volunteered himself as the martyr. God rest his soul hahaha.

Re: Spam bots strike back

Heh. Don't piss off the Ahroun, buddy.

Seriously, though. I do seem to be active on here when the bots are, assuming I'm not working that night. And recently, it's just been sitting around with the forum up anyway, so why not make myself useful?

EDIT: Uh, question... With the spam hunting, is it going to be actual post-nuking, or just reporting? If it's the post-nuking, I've still only got permissions for my own RP sections.

We will see how things go. There may be need for an assistant or such but who knows.

Re: Spam bots strike back

The admittedly derpy other wolf here, who should have gone to bed when he said so, volunteers if the need arises... Why am I doing this? Fuck it. I blame sleep deprivation but the offer stands, 17 hours each weekend? I can sift through things.

Really... nothing better to do. How sad has my existence become?

Re: Spam bots strike back

I gave you the ability to perform your duties. in this case global moderator status. you of course arent a moderator but its what you need to do your job.

Re: Spam bots strike back

Only mark the ones that are spam. <- What I've been doing.

Can't do anything about the posts themselves, of course, but at least they can't add more. A couple of the ones I hit were pretty prolific.

Re: Spam bots strike back

Define mark as spam. you cant actualy break things because i dont think you can physicaly delete.

Re: Spam bots strike back

User Infraction -> Infraction Level -> Spammed Advertisements.
Administrative Note: Spam.

That's all I've been doing, since being upped. And only on the posts that are a bunch of random words with products or links mentioned, or similar. Like the one "user" who made numerous posts all over that consisted of nothing but question marks, much like something trying to use Oriental characters on a system that doesn't have any installed.

It's not giving me an option to do that, or I would.

Re: Spam bots strike back

Nothing. Will check when I hit another one, might be it's not showing because I've already hit the user.

Let me try something...

EDIT: Nope, login cycling didn't change anything.

Re: Spam bots strike back

I volunteer for possible assistant thingery as well, getting tired of these motherfucking bots in this motherfucking forum. As I might have mentioned before, I have been a moderator on another (now defunct) hentai forum and am familiar with the system.

Re: Spam bots strike back

This isn't about being a moderator, the moderator powers are necessary to do the job of cleaning up spam or i wouldn't have given them out.

Anyway once he figures out how to delete things we can figure out if we need another person.

Re: Spam bots strike back

Yes, I do realize this. Just saying that I am bothered by these tardbots and want to help dealing with them, plus have some experience in the system so I won't need to be told how things are done. But that is not up to me, so you people decide how you want to handle things.

Also, now I know what not to buy. None of these brands deserve any money after this kind of bullshit.

Re: Spam bots strike back

The problem I seem to be having is that the only moderation option that's showing on my end for me isn't the one that lets me delete posts/threads. The checkbox and drop-down menu for Moderation only show in the two RP sections I was already Mod in.

I can now give out the Infractions globally, as previously mentioned, but no other options are showing.
