Can someone check this?

It seems to add an ad (in iframe) instead of removing it

Scam.
Overlays any adfly-site with specific one.

Suggestion: (I am sure it has been said before)

- Disallow/Discard Empty Topics
- Limit new scripts to max 50 a day per person (I don't think any legitimate script-writer uploads more than that in a day)
:)

"- Limit new scripts to max 50 a day per person (I don't think any legitimate script-writer uploads more than that in a day) "
I think 5 should be more than enough

I agree with the suggestions above regarding limiting scripts per day uploads and disallowing empty topics. I just ran through about 256 pages of almost nothing but spam/scam/malware scripts that were uploaded from Jan 31st through today and are being uploaded even now in mass amounts. It might be that this tidal wave of bad scripts started before 1/31/2014, but after scrolling through 256 pages looking for new or updated scripts, I simply gave up. This stuff makes it hard on real developers since their scripts are overlooked due to this insanity.

t1na:

I wrote this a few weeks ago:

---

This site has reached the tipping point for me. The spammers have so overwhelmed the site that I can't really do anything useful any more. If there were even a hint of communication from anyone acting in any sort of administrative role for this site that things would get better, I would just bide my time, but the spam problems have been escalating for months and we report the issues and seemingly nothing is done.

I know I'm not alone in asking what the future of this site is. It seems to be completely broken at this point.

Is there anyone with any real insight into the administration of this site who can give us any hope?

---

I received one response, from somebody who didn't seem to be an administrator. The currently-employed method seems to be "catch the spammers after they flood the system." It isn't working. Any administrators willing to throw us a bone here? Any plans to stop the flood in the works?

I have to agree with sharmard ^^^ & I'll wait for "hopefully" admin reply but yes the site has taken a turn for the worse last few months. Please at the least give us a report buttion there's so many scrips that are only spam or virus's take for example https://userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/show/136773

I've been around here for years love the site but its starting to become over run with junk.

Just did a search for Amazon...

and there's a crap ton of garbage like Counter Strike Hacks and itunes card generator that have no actual script, just a URL where the script is supposed to go.

I also saw these stuff.. whatch series xxx... play game yyy and watch football match zzz and btw buy a kitchen. So annoying. I rated 3 Spam Scripts... they are not even Scripts. And then every few minutes new users posting more spam in forum and as Scripts... There must be a way to prevent the bots from registering.
