I came across this reddit section known as reddit.com/r/thanosdidnothingwrong and what the moderators did there is, ban half of the accounts in that reddit subsection. There were approx 650,000 users and 325,000 users got banned.

It's time for bitcointalk to do so. An initiative for a handful of users, to go to the the main shitposting sections, start reporting threads there, and mods to start deleting/banning and destroying the hopes of shitposters?

Thanos theymos, snap your finger, destroy the accounts. Ruin the life of shitposters. You don't want to bring in restrictions, don't. Just ban those who deserve to be. Hire some voluntary mods. For a few hours. Get your infinity gauntlet ready(with the 6 infinity stones).

Any voluntary users up for this? For binge reporting?

I truly support your idea about "Infinity snap", but I think it would be better if mods can looking into the members profile and their post history before take any actions. I have looking in to that Reddit subsection and some of the members missed the snapping date(9th july 2018) due to unavoidable personal reasons ( but they all are not the shitposters) and they got banned. So if we going for this kind of system of banning (I believed we should) better to implement a system only filtered the real shitposters but not members who really cares about the forum. Some times they can be inactive some period of time due to personal reasons which didn't mean that they are spammers or shitposters.

One good member actually worth more than hundred of shitposters or spammers.

I try to do my bit every day that I am on. 98% accuracy on reporting  Grin

Sometimes when I see an unintentional breach of the rules by a generally good posting newbie I send them a polite PM with a link to the rules.

Some entire threads should be deleted. ANN threads that clearly  use paid shills or bots  to bump their thread posting nonsense or "good project" - the ANN thread should just get deleted.

They will soon get the message.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

That's interesting looking at the comments you've left when reporting. Here's one of mine "Ref spam; Whack this fool yo". Yeah, quite happy with that one if I may say so myself.

I've had hundreds if not thousands of spambots banned in just the past week. But considering thousands of new accounts are created each day, it doesn't help much.


As long as users can't see who's banned already, it leads to unnecessary work for users and Mods. I can easily find thousands of Newbie spambots using patrol, and I'd love to extend this to Jr. Members too, but it requires some upgrades to the patrol page. And the accounts still need a manual check before banning them. It's easy to find likely suspects, but securing innocent accounts is much more work.


If there's gonna be a Bitcointalk Challenge to get most users banned, I'm in Cheesy

It's just a matter of "One-Above-All" giving LoyceV access for a few hours to the magical ban button and it will be a preview from "Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe" "LoyceV bans the entire Forum".  Grin Grin Grin

Or it could be done just with a prank from Theymos like hiding the bounty section for 24hours or a few days with a message "This board has been deactivated". This will really get rid (for real) of some spammers.

I'll just add my daily quota of reporting anyway, especially since I've started the day with two morons copying my posts  Cry

Cheesy Probably Cheesy
Just in the past 15 hours, 99 Newbies have posted "great project". This is the first one I check:
THIS IS A GREAT PROJECT.
ANUMUDU
0x9F9655f0eB800131e840caCD40D21e73D8DE9518
That thread was started yesterday, and already has 920 replies similar to this one.
I've reported the post saying: "Low effort posting. Please check the thread, it has 920 posts like this since yesterday.". It would be nice to know how the Mod handles this.
The thread has long lists of Newbies with the same Activity, most likely all bumpbots just spamming the same thread.
Nuking them one by one is a lost cause, I'd like cluster nukes to just nuke all accounts that posted in that thread at once.
I've listed a couple hundred accounts again for Mod review.

I've always wanted to ask this and since is a topic about clean-up, I'll do it here
What is nowadays considered a useless post, a low-quality one?
Will the mods delete stuff like:

Quote
This is rreally a nice project
I'm interested, this is an interesting project
It is better than i expected. Great!
Hello. I believe that this project is quite a lucrative investment at the moment!
I expect you success! Faultless vision, absorbing approach, unprejudiced website.

Things like this guy is just posting

I really don't know if I should bother reporting it or just leave them alone

Morons or bots?

As I've checked their post history, they are probably just morons fortunately, unfortunately.....no idea if it's good or bad.  Shocked

The comments so far I have used on the reporting page:

-off topic and sexual harassment

Pure curiosity, do you remember what that was and on what section?  Grin Grin

See here, I think this is just one of many spambots that add random phrases together.
It can't be a coincidence that so many Newbies post such uncommon phrases.

I always report the spammers and such things if i see them and i be online !
I was thinking maybe we should allocate a weeks's time period for this? A schedule , perhaps? And all this would be waste, if the staff's contribution becomes inadequate.

As i mentioned many times, removing signature globally is the fastest solution. All spammer will leave by themselves (along with majority user traffic) and moderator/staff/admin don't need to "snap" them.
Yeah no, that's not gonna happen, at least not until the new forum comes out.  Wink

The most focus should be on these ANN threads that use shills, those who literally use one-line garbage in discussions, plagiarism, posting phishing links etc.

I am in! In fact I am already doing my best behind the scene.
The comments should be useful, and Welsh's reporting guide could be of great help here. These templates can ease things out.

Apparently not.

And the accounts still need a manual check before banning them. It's easy to find likely suspects, but securing innocent accounts is much more work.
They can see if users are banned. Either by looking at their profiles to see if the signature they were wearing is removed/ to check the modlog.

If there's gonna be a Bitcointalk Challenge to get most users banned, I'm in Cheesy
I still want to hear something from the administration/moderation team about this. Although this isn't a challenge, but just a motivational parody of Avengers: Infinity war , so that bitcointalk users can value this forum for what it truly is. People need to respect the moderation and administration team here.
Or it could be done just with a prank from Theymos like hiding the bounty section for 24hours or a few days with a message "This board has been deactivated". This will really get rid (for real) of some spammers.
Dude this. Best prank ever! I would love it,when shitposters lose their fucking mind.

theymos,reserve this for next April fools day
I've always wanted to ask this and since is a topic about clean-up, I'll do it here
What is nowadays considered a useless post, a low-quality one?
Will the mods delete stuff like: <...>
Yes,they do. They even nuke such newbies.

A low quality post is usually considered like the ones which post in spam megathreads, in the 600th page, saying BTC to the moon, or literally rephrasing the same text that has already been said before. You'll know its a low topic post, once you read it.
Pure curiosity, do you remember what that was and on what section?  Grin Grin
Should be off-topic. That section has a lot of sexual content, ALOT.
So far, what I have in mind is:

- Prepare a schedule, for a week's time, users keep binge reporting.

- Allocate different boards to different users to avoid multi-reporting the same post.

- The current mods aren't enough? I really think theymos should hire voluntary mods,for a few days.

I am looking forward for hearing from the Mods/admins about this whole thing here.

I have increased the frequency of posts I report, especially in the Press and Project Development sections. And as a consequence,  my number of unhandled has increased. Unfortunately, I do not know which section this is occurring. The Welsh guide helps a lot in choosing how to report. The @welsh guide helps a lot in choosing how to report, I recommend everyone to read and use it.

But being honest, I was sad that I was not banned from reddit.com/r/thanosdidnothingwrong. : D
