As we all can see, spamming is one of our problems here in this forum, that is why the moderators came up with a precaution called "MERIT SYSTEM",to encourage all of us to make quality post, but it seems that it is not that effective because for sure others are just ignoring this since they could still post and join bounty with their current ranks, BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE HERE, SO HEAR ME OUT GUYS.

TO AVOID SPAMMING WE SHOULD HAVE:


1. UNITY and COOPERATION

- This is the number one thing that we should consider for us to avoid spam post or spamming this forum. We are all getting benefits here in this forum, so it is our responsibility to take care of this forum, we should stick to the rules that is given to us, we should obey and we don't need to be a hard headed member on this forum ignoring the important things and just keep on spamming.



2. to become AWARE
- before posting a certain topic, make sure to have a research first to know that the topic that you are going to post is not yet posted, because there is a lot of topics that has been created in different threads which are all related, for me that is spamming.



3. to be UPDATED

- it must be a routine for you to stay updated on what is happening in the forum, because if you are, I'm sure you do have a lot of knowledge that is worth to be share and not just inventing random things to post on a thread.

Merited by thisappointed (1)
 #2

The people who are most likely reading this aren't spammers.  If someone is a spammer, they're not even going to see this thread.  If they do see it, they probably won't or can't read it.  Either way, this isn't useful information.  Seems more like a merit-grab attempt from someone who, although he's a senior member, has yet to earn any merits.

I'm not saying OP is a spammer at all, just that this info is kind of obvious stuff and won't reach the people it should reach.  What is true is that OP could be earning more as a Legendary in a sig campaign if he had the merits to rank up.  Maybe I've gotten too cynical.

Edit:  OP, I don't know why you merited me.  Give it to a lower-ranked member if they're deserving of it.  However, I pretty much did that anyway.  Some of Bardman's posts are pretty good and he seems to be under-merited.

No. You have always been cynical up to 11.
You know, I still have This is Spinal Tap on VHS, which I occasionally watch.

You do have a point, there is nothing we can do even if we wanted to help but they don't wanted our help. Smiley
Anyways, I just posted this because this might reach those who wanted to be reach, nothing more nothing less.

Cheers

At the Moment there is not much we can do about spam as report them!

The most spam posted by Bots or paid Users for post shit to get the thread up to the top!

No any spammer are going to read your thread. Still now only 31 people read this thread. What's you describe really nothing new. Every board have a sticked post about rules. But none spammer reading that. Spammer are busy with spaming so how he/she will read a good post. Do you know many people reply on the thread without reading post ? They just read the subject  Grin. We can just report spammer post, may be it will reduce some spam. Because if any one got 3 valid report he/she will ban from forum. So let's report spammer post.

As the Pharmacist quite rightly said, spammers wont be reading this as they will be doing what they do best...spamming!

On how to avoid spamming, i think people who join this place with the sole intention of spamming should be booted out of here or go through a probationary period to prove their worthiness here. This forum is littered with spam unfortunately and the only way to stop it is to put a stop to the people/bots who are ruining it for the genuine folk.

You should post this in the Beginners and Help, if you are truly trying to reach new users who may unintentionally spam the forum. It could be useful to the 1-3% of spammers.

Those are the only people that will benefit from this. Unfortunately there are very few unintentional spammers.

My guess is most of them come here hammer out there 5-10 posts per account(s) everyday of the week, trying to hide them in spam megathreads to "earn" their weekly paycheck.

Green = generous guess

To be honest, I didnt read all of your post because I know that spamming here is not that easy to remove and what you said is like a fantasy in the making especially the first one.

Spamming is like a virus here that is being spread already or maybe like corruption that can't destroy.

Anyway, nice try OP. Maybe you should move this to beginners and help since most people who are posting in Meta are probably not spammers Cheesy.

I also noticed that spammers have evolved as well.

Of course the usual bounty hunters, but we used to hunt spammers doing copy-and-paste, but seems progress from using homographs attacks, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2977866 to using spinning software or bots.

I guess the only weapon we have is a collective effort to report those shitposters/spammers so that appropriate actions could be taken.

The Pharmacist is probably right that the ones reading your thread are not spammers. And the real spammers by now should have get it by themselves this time because for sure a lot of their posts got deleted by mods. And the real persons who are not bots might have probably Googled a guide on how to stop spamming by now but they still fail to do so. But even after they read this guide I don't think it will help a lot as one of the most important step is they need to follow which I think they cannot do. Most spammers I see in the forum really do not change as they really don't have the motivation to change for the better.

The thing is the users that do spam don't care that they are spamming. They all have their own motives for spamming, but the majority are to get paid. They don't really care about their accounts too much, because its simple enough to just make a new account, and spam with that.

So, telling spammers how to avoid spamming isn't going to do an awful lot.

This is something some older users should read, amount of spamm is getting bigger and bigger every day. What I most noticed is that most users read only the title and first or last post in thread, and this is not only characteristic to lower ranks as some may think.

For example just look at this thread , it was attempt of OP to see how many people actually read anything else except title and first post, some 80% just post without read second post to realize OP is make joke with them. It is like this in most of threads, people do not want to read, or they just ignore what's written.

I'm not saying OP is a spammer at all,......

Me too, it is just that I couldn't help but have a look at his post history, and I find him having some issues himself which he needs to see first before offering help or suggestions to others. The biggest thing I noticed was that most of the times he quotes a lot of nested replies to just reply to the last one of them, which usually newbies do when they start posting. He, being a Hero member, should at least know that is not appropriate. Other than that, he seems to get into a lot of mega spam threads, mainly in Gambling section, which is what spammers do to increase their post count for signature campaigns.

Colleagues, any problem is very simple to solve if you find its source.

Where does spam come from?
We still have sales of accounts and this is not prohibited by anyone.
A lot of advertising managers register dozens of accounts to fake the activity around shitty ICO.
The Signature Campaign require from participants up to 60 posts a week.

What in the end?

Professionals (miners, traders, lawyers) go to more specialized forums and our forum turns into a garbage dump for advertising ICO.
We all understand that the forum needs traffic and user activity, but not the same methods.
At least prohibit the sale of accounts and enter more stringent rules for publishing projects to reduce the amount of spam.

There is one thing that remains a question for me is whether they (spammers) know the definition spam post and forum spam. If there is a newbie who doesn't know what it means and lazy to read a pinned post, maybe they can understand this first:

It doesn't matter if they know what spam is or not. I'm pretty sure they do mind you. However, the users that are spamming for campaigns or what ever other motives they might have usually aren't the ones to care about the state of the forum. They care about getting paid or bumping their service to earn more money.
