This doesn't belong exactly here, but I haven't found more appropriate topic.

I signed up just a while ago... twice, because I made a typo in my email address :( That mistyped address doesn't even exist, which should help my case, since I'd like to get my original username back... The easiest way would be to delete this account and also account with username 'gorthaur', supposing it won't remain blocked and I can repeat the sign up. Otherwise I can just keep this account, but I'd like to know some site op's word on it.

Sorry for being a bother...

No actions taken from dob's potst to this. We really need moderators.

11 comments and one forum post.

Also, re: LouCypher's comment above; I know there are a number of regular active users who seem to check this site really quite often on the whole, and some of these have either offered themselves or been suggested as moderators in the past. It strikes me that the spam at the moment is very much controlable but it seems to be often left for days or weeks before being removed, and I know that the admin seem reluctant to accept any help with this, but I think they should seriously consider enlisting the help of some active users to help control this annoyance.

Nobody wants to take over this forum, but I believe it'd make things much easier if moderators could at least temporarily hide/remove scripts. Later on, they could actually be deleted by the admins.

If they aren't spammer ... they are on the good way:

https://userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/search?q=hinata0...

They are posting always the same script with different names, it's a new type of hack? malware?

@Any Admin

Most of the spammers post the same message in few minutes more times ....

It would be nice when this message would be able to destroy itself in 5 seconds ... but it doesn't so @any admin I'm sure that you can delete it.

A bunch of spam comments. I flagged this a week ago, but it's still not been removed...

 
Aquilax Scriptwright

Why you don't create an url black list, each time that you delete a spam message that contains links, add the links to the url black list and when someone post a new message that contains a link to an url of the black list ... trash it automatically, so you avoid that spammers post always the same messages with the same links to the same sites.

Here is an idea.

1. make the logged cookie die, it shouldn't live as long as it does. session limited would be perfect.
2. make everyone have to login before they can post a script.
3. when you login, make all of us do a CAPTCHA.
4. Fail 3 CAPTCHAs and you get thrown in the JUDGEMENT queue.
5. to get out of the JUDGEMENT queue you must plead your case.

After that, it is upto whoever reads the pleas as to whether or not you get reinstated. This will eliminate alot of spam accounts right off the bat. Also, it would ensure that a real human or highly trained animal is logging in.

In addition to the above:

1. if the spam deletion count on an account is 3 or more, that account immediately goes into judgement, with all scripts associated with it going in there too.
2. this should go for forum spam too.

So that's my nickel and 2 pennies worth of ideas. :)

ciao

 
znerp Scriptwright

Well I don't know about anyone else, but if captchas are brought in, I would probably use this site much less. That would just be plain annoying.

 
dob Scriptwright

I second that.

Just put up two or three moderators, users with the privilege to hide/erase topics/users/scripts, and everything'll be ok.

Appears to be a genuine post, but the user has included some (spam?) links at the bottom as a sort of sigature - https://userscripts-mirror.org/forums/2/topics/2405

this person "A2J"
https://userscripts-mirror.org/users/53515
seems to have a script running that is downloading other peoples scripts from us.o then reuploading them as his own, and adding "by Dark Hackers" to the title of each script, god knows what nasty code they are inserting into the scripts

 
steeev Scriptwright

A2J is at it again, still duplicating other peoples scripts...

 
Jesse Andrews Admin

Attempting to contact A2J to see if this is a mistake, but given that the tagline is "Dark Hackers", I think we might have another problem user :(
