Spam Bot & Spammers Reporting

Post by Brandon on Sun 14 Dec 2014, 6:58 pm

Hello,
If you see a user that might be a spam bot or spammer. Please report them to a staff member immediatelly, you can do so by: posting in this topic, using the report a post feature, by the 'report an abuse' link at the bottom of the site, or by private message (pm) to a staff member. This way a a staff member (ex. Adminstrator, moderator, etc) can ban them. You can usually recognize a spam bot because they'll post very long gibberish topics/posts that make no sense and advertise stuff you don't need.

When reporting a spambot or spammer to a staff member in this thread or by any other method, please include all or as much of the following information as possible:

Arrow Username of the spambot/spammer
Arrow Url of the spambot/spammers profile
Arrow  Link to a post or topic created by the spambot/spammer (used to verify/confirm the reported user is indeed a spambot/spammer) or if you cant provide exact links to posts or topics by them, then provide a link to a section that contains them or a screenshot of the post/topic.
Arrow If you recieve spam pm (private message) by a spambot/spammer , then please include the first 2 information listed above (spambot/spammer username & profile link) as well as a screenshot of the pm(s) and include them in your post/report to staff in this thread or any other means.

If it makes it easier, you may copy and paste the below format to use in your post:

Code:
[b]Username[/b]:
[b]Url/Link to the spambot/spammer's profile[/b]:
[b]Link to a topic, post or section from the spambot or spammer[/b]:
[b]Screenshot of the message sent to you by the spambot/spammer (if you recieved a spam pm (private message) only[/b]:

Please report all of them. This is very important, because we want to keep the forum free of clutter.

Staff: When dealing with a spam bot... first ban them and change their warning bar to banned, then edit as 1 topic/post from them saying: spam removed and member banned and move it to the Dump. Then delete all the rest of them.

Thanks,
- The Broadcasting Duo Team

Hey everyone,

I have updated the original post of this topic with additional information on what information to include when reporting a spambot/spammer , how you can report them and other helpful information to make it easier for you all to report and for us staff to deal spambots and spammers alike.

If you ever have any questions, concerns on reporting a spambot/spammer , please feel free to post them here or contact any member of staff and we will be happy to do our best to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have.

Thanks for helping keep the site clear and clean of spambots and spammers by reporting any potential spambots/spammers to us. Wink

-Brandon and the rest of the Broadcasting Duo Team
