Chinese Spam Needs To Be Addressed. Happening Late Night [NA Hours]

Recommended Posts

OU7C4ST

For a few months now there has been Chinese text spammed on the forum that entirely takes over, and limits/blocks previous discussions from being viewed on the front page.

Will moderators implement something that can possibly eliminate this when it immediately happens?

I know the Forum we are currently on even states it's part of the English section. Maybe an introduction of an Auto-Moderation system that can ban foreign text as soon as it's detected?

EDIT : I would also like to mention maybe a filter that would detect a specific sentence, and remove it. Most of these bots seem to be mentioning Universities in some sort of manner. The spam seems to be consistent in this manner anyways for the last few months.

The problem has been going on for more than half a year now and at this point I doubt that anything significant will change to prevent the bots.

We've had numerous ideas in the past, including players who have worked as website admins themselves and experienced similar attacks first hand, yet nothing has changed.

 

That being said, the moderators deserve praise for deleting those threads in a short amount of time every day, despite being trapped in a Don Quijote scenario.

I think this is wide spread. Other sites like musescore have been hit with the same thing.
