What to do when you see the spam
« on: November 12, 2019, 10:14:51 AM »
Oddly enough, I would like you to do nothing. ;-) 

I check in at least once daily if not more, and I see them - they're pretty obvious.  I ban and delete the accounts and clean it all up.  If you hit the "report" button, that actually makes *more* work for me, as I then have to go into the moderator panel and acknowledge the reports to clear them. 

The report button is good for a post in an existing thread that I might miss, but for the ones that are new threads, just go ahead and ignore.   O0

I also check near-daily, but it's usually all cleaned up when I get around to it.
Thanks for being on top of this, Alirrin.
The opinions expressed here are my own and I have my wife's permission to say so.

I don't see it, so go ahead and hit the "Report" button on it.

LOL - No wonder I couldn't find the "Firiona Vie" subforum where that spam was I needed to see ...  :o

I never played EQ1, as it happens. I started with EQ2.  With no nostalgia for it, the art makes my eyes cross  :2funny:
