Just use the report to moderator button as much as you can that is the only way we have for now and I can see that there were lot of similar threads were deleted by the moderators in Altcoin discussion as well.

Sadly many discussions of the altcoin area are continually influenced by bumping services that use low rank accounts (reading here on the forum, I do not remember exactly where, we talk about a few hundreds of dollars a month) in addition to this fact, the threads bounties are abused from an infinite number of people who use low ranked accounts to abuse with multiaccount.
The solution to limit this is to limit the altcoin area for people with rank member + or copper.

Oh, the marvelous Altcoin Section....

With thousands of unique threads


Invest in Ethereum
Is now a good time to buy Eth?
are you holding your ethereum ?
Should I invest in Ethereum now or wait?
shall i convert my bitcoins to ethereum?
Should I sell or hold my ETH?
Are you surprised at the price of ETH?

And with such unique posts....of course, the required copy paster at the fifth search in the first thread...(already reported)

Maybe this is a good time to buy ETHereum while the price is down and we could hold it for a short time.
But I think the ETHereum will increase again in the next month so if we don't want to miss with the increasing of the price, then we need to buy right now. Wink

I think the ethereum will increase again in the next month so if we don't want to miss with the increasing of the price, then we need to buy right now.

The only way to clean that area is to lock 99% of the topics and instantly delete any duplicate topic that appears with no mercy

What to do with topics like these, report to a moderator?
You can either be part of the members cleaning the section or completely just ignore the section/s related to Altcoin discussion. If you choose the latter go to your Profile > Ignore Boards Preferences > Check boxes related to the Altcoin Discussion (Including Altcoin Discussions in Local Boards). By doing so you the boards you will check will be completely inaccessible to you, you can't even view them if you click the "Show unread posts since last visit" page which is very helpful as for my personal experience going to that page, you will see that most topics shown are ANN and Bounty threads of Altcoins.

Most of them could probably just be straight up removed, honestly. Most of them have zero content, and are just rehashed replies. Locking them isn't really saying any worthy discussion, and just means the spammers get to keep their post counts.

For a forum this size I would expect there to be more users reporting. But, there isn't that many users that do report. Its always the same users reporting. Again, its understandable because its a real pain in the arse to do, and has no rewards whatsoever at the moment. But, hopefully with the introduction of reporting badges that will change.
I think something more important than a badge is required.
I would prefer no badge at all, and no incentive for reporting. Reporting spam posts can also be abused, and someone already mentioned it. If people really cared about the forum, they won't be needing any incentive.

TBH, I grew tired of reporting posts from Announcements(Altcoins), and  Marketplace(Altcoins). Majority of my reports came from those sections, it's stressful reporting them, and my reports now came from topics that are not suited on a section.

I even sometimes wonder if legit investors dare to visit ICO Ann.

It's better to trash Announcements(Altcoins), and Marketplace(Altcoins). They both attract spammers, and scammers.

@OP, those sections that I mentioned is worthy for the signature you advertise. No offense, but the signature you're wearing attracts spammers here, who the hell in the world could make 42 meaningful posts in a week wearing it?

I don't really care for the reasons behind people reporting. As long as they aren't making alternate accounts, and reporting posts purposely to pad their report count. If they are genuinely reporting posts made by other people, then I don't really care for their motives as it still results in a cleaner forum.

A few things:

Not all boards under the altcoin section are infected with spam. From what I have heard, the Altcoin Mining section has less spam than the other altcoin boards, and a lot of good discussions occur there.

And there aren't any guidelines or anything to the topics to be created there. Any topic that has the words like "bounty", "airdrop", and any altcoin gets to be there, and the spam starts to take its course.

1/2(welsh moderates only half the boards there) mods aren't enough for the biggest board in bitcointalk.

Since you have seen the dark side, how badly does that section require additional moderators? And are there any guidelines on what type of posts belong there? The altcoin marketplace has a lot of off-topic threads and they always stay there only,unless reported, which is quite rare(I'd assume).

Of course, trashing them would have been my obvious choice also but since I'm almost 99% sure they won't, maybe at least we could lock them, and keep a better track on what happens on the fresh ones that for sure will pop up like mushrooms in both cases.

 I would love to see all the shitposter them crying over the deleted post like it happened last year (? my memory is fuzzy but I'm sure at one point the board was flooded with users angry about lost posts count and lost bounty), but lately, I'm not expecting much to be done.

All of them have tons similar replies I doubt it was anyone reading this.

You are right, most of people never read the topic. Perhaps just see the subject and start spamming. Nothing we can do except report. I am very less active on alt coin or on Bitcoin discussion. Although I visit some time than most of time I used report button. Anyway it's result of signeture, especially Jr. Members. Because most of reply from Jr. Members I have seen ever. That's why it's better option to include Jr. Member to merit system. There should be minimum merit to become Jr.member or disable signeture for them. I can't see other solution at this time.

If that is how you think it should go, considering the amount of spam, then here is a better suggestion:
Take out a board or two, and change the name of the forum from "bitcointalk.org" to "craptalk.org".
Because it is not only one section that is flooded with these kind of things, but it is almost the whole forum that is under attack right now. Name one section after them, and they will compel you to name another too as there is no stopping for them right now. They just get into a section and don't leave it until it starts bleeding heavily, and then they jump out and run towards another.
This won't stop unless these "spam zombies" die. They will keep spreading, and we will keep getting affected by this if our superhero (theymos) don't come up with some poison to be expelled on them that would vanish them for at least some time.

At this point, disabling signature on this section would be fastest way, even though the spammer simply move to another section.
Maybe delete mega thread/move mega thread to trash can every few days would be effective since the spammer won't get paid and wasting their time.

What to do with topics like these, report to a moderator?

You just wasting your time, it's only effective on section with many real discussion such as Serious Discussion/Development & Technical Discussion.
