Help! Fake accounts.

Postby TheChocolateGamer » Fri Jul 01, 2016 1:17 pm

Most of the new members (f.e SarafovoGox today) are fake accounts for advertising (some of them are obscene too :/). There are mostly from Bulgaria and Russia. I'm just informing you this, dear moderators. Please treat their accounts as it is right :thumbsup:
Galatians 3:13 NIV: Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”

Luke 6:31 NIV (The Golden Rule): Do to others as you would have them do to you.

No, they don't advertise to me, but they have advertisements in their signature, occupation and/or interests. Also on one account, their interests were SPOILER: Highlight text to read: prostitutes/prostitution :/

At the far upper right corner of every post is the report button. Click it, indicate the reason (in this case, bots), and it goes straight to all the moderators.

They don't post anything. How can I report their accounts?

I suggest that all accounts with any russian letters gets banned, and thats probably even more effective than building a wall around mexico.

Send a PM to the moderators with the user names. If you're not sure who the moderators are, they're the ones with blue names.

And don't panic. This isn't the first time CAA had a slew of either bots or trolls. Just take a deep breath and send a private message to someone in charge (instead of making a thread, which gives the offenders the attention they want).

We do eliminate these accounts as we find them. However, they may still appear on recent user registration lists and so on. In general, no need to give us a heads up unless they're actually posting and causing trouble on the board; we will find them as they turn up.
