    Thanks! It was getting ridiculous. I wonder what these bots are supposed to achieve...

    What about implementing a Stop Forum Spam blacklist? I've been using that on my own message boards and so far it has stopped dozens upon dozens of spam registration attempts, way before they even manage to register at all. Sure there are some that get past the cracks, but those are rare.

    YES! The cavalry has arrived! Lets get rid of those stupid spamers.

    Unbelievable the ammount of spam that comes on every time around the same period of the year.

    Reporting all of it, is impossible at the moment as it's just too much.

    Reporting isn't needed, we can see it, don't worry! The only problem is that the Codies staff aren't here (it is Christmas Eve) and us three moderators only have basic tools with which to deal with it.

    Ah, thanks for mentioning that, saves me a lot of clicking.

    Merry Christmas to you and all other mods, Codies staff and forum visitors.

    "Recent Discussions" has become pretty useless with all the spam. First 8 pages just spam, before you get to the first non-spam post.
  • DidzisDidzis Member Team Principal
    This is just ridiculous - 600 pages of spam in the Codemasters - General Discussion thread

    I'm afraid it's a bit beyond what we're capable of dealing with, we don't get any admin tools to use in situations like this so it depends when the staff get back as to when it's dealt with.

    We were here for 4 hours after my last post, deleting and banning another 30 pages of accounts

    Half an hour later and the site looked like we hadn't done anything, again.

    If it was down to me I'd be messaging a few of the companies the spammer is working for, asking them how their adverts for their North American universities ended up being adverstised on an English gaming website, in Korean. Korean speaking gamers in the US must be a huge market...

    I don't know if anyone is in the position to arrange it, but I am willing to help cleaning the forum.

    None of us can organise that and it's somewhat pointless anyway - we can delete all of the spam but until Codies get the prevention working it's a losing battle.

    I'm back now, and sorry for inactive for ages due to real-life job.

    That's unbelievable when I see a lot of spams in this forums. :( It also happened to the other forums where I was a moderator, and keep fighting against spammers. I hope Codies will do something to stop it asap. We will never give up until the spammers are defeated.
