Just an idea to throw out there to combat future spam: For every reported post made that account has to wait an extra 5 minutes to make another one. This isn't a solution obviously but a mere bandaid to reduce the amount seen when there don't seem to be any mods around to take care of it. >pic unrelated
How about accounts cannot get to a trusted account status, 250 posts within a 24 hour period? Currently all the spammer has to do is make 250 posts for his posts to stay up for 24 hours. Gmods can't touch em. Currently a spammer has 351 posts. If any account just has a few posts, it shouldn't be able to make a bunch of posts really quick to make it into trusted account status in a 24 hour period. Make all accounts that dont have 250 posts capped at 249 posts a day, with a message that they reached their post limit for the day to make a new account or wait 24 hours until they can post again. To go one step further, offer a temporary account thats already created with a 50 post count to use as a secondary account once 249 posts are reached, while disabling posting on the original account for 24 hours. Better yet, freeze an all accounts post count at 249 posts for 24 hours, let them still post, but their post count won't change until 24 hours is up, then the posts they made after the 249th post is then credited to their account, 24 hours later. This way, no one can end up with the current situation of 351 CP spam posts that the gmods can't touch, that will stay on the site up to 24 hours until Gad moderates spam.
Bring back >Outlanders
>>6087 Fuck the Outlanders, we don't need more spam
>>6091 The amount of spam hasn't changed. The only thing that's changed is being able to post without an account.
>>6085 Unfortunately I agree considering how incredibly persistent they are. >>6086 > Make all accounts that dont have 250 posts capped at 249 posts a day, with a message that they reached their post limit for the day to make a new account That would just encourage the spammer to make more accounts once it has hit the cap on another. If this is even possible to code in, what if GMods were allowed to "freeze" accounts regardless of the post count? It would hide all posts until the account either got blacklisted (not deleted so that the username can't simply be reused) or verified by gadette (basically re-activating it).
Spam to delete: thecow.me
I think spammer himself testing out a new tactic.
>>6005 Yeah, he posts one word comments (usually unrelated) to get posts to spam once and get banned. Rinse and repeat. feel free to call it "tactic" >>6006 Really? Your comment makes me think you're one of the spammers.
>>6008 I think so
Content here is useless
>>6020 It was, his post got wiped along the spam. >>6021 said the butthurt pedospammer
hey administrator, what is more important to you, let me ask you, what is legally wrong or what is morally wrong https://ccluster.com/tinylotuscult/thread/13890 🖢 how can you sleep well at night allowing stuff like this on your place
>>5841 Yet the blame was passed onto me several times despite not being the one at fault. Apparently I'm the preferred scapegoat for shit like that here...
We need some early Sandra model in this thread, fuck, it's been a while since I've seen some.
>>5842 You're still crying about this? It's time to move on chum. Quit dwelling on the past.
>>5842 There's a big diffrence between reporting something accidently when your report a 100 or so spam posts and malicously reporting things that are fine. Someones still going around just reporting posts cause they don't like them.
I just had another anon ID deleted. I did not break any rules or report any posts using the ID. How do I find out why it was deleted? If I did something wrong I have no way of knowing what it was.
>>5865 Proof of what? Gad dismissed those false reports already. Quit getting hung up on nonsense and move on. Learn from your mistakes, it's in the past now. /thread
>>5866 Why are you getting in the way of other's trolling? Is "/thread" your signature? are you samefagging? don't you tell me you think you can control the thread,that would be sad
>>5866 >Can't provide proof of said posts What a shocker.
>>5864 >So maybe you have put your password in wrong I could create the ID again so it was not a password problem.
>>5869 It was clearly a user problem
Hey gadette, do you have any plans on coding something in so when posts/threads get reported that they are automatically hidden from the public's view until they are either deleted or verified? The constant spam is a massive eyesore and is keeping the few people who used to post here away. Plus even unintentionally looking at it is illegal in most countries...
The problem with that is that it makes too easy for someone to report a thread and hide it. I'll think about it
Maybe add a feature to hide all reported post, that you must opt into.
I think this is a bad idea. >>5626 >The problem with that is that it makes too easy for someone to report a thread and hide it. Even the OP was reported, with this it would have been hidden...
>>5626 Then just do what has been done to my accounts for dicking around--delete them without warning. Or make a separate list beneath the latest ten posts for hidden posts (and have them listed like they were on MC - see pic related)? Oh on that note, could we get the option to condense the posts on this version of the site to the old version as well? It'd make reporting text spam less tedious in my opinion.
Gad, Why isn't this showing up on the reports screen? https://ccluster.com/7up/thread/3525#4162
>>5367 For what?
>>5367 I've a half eaten pizza crust.
>>5368 for the file sharing websites which require premium accounts to download
>>5370 Why? What content do you get that you can not get for free elsewhere?
>>5178 I have discovered the glitch in the matrix. I accidentally hit delete post instead of delete all posts With permab& checked. The rest of the spam made by that anon ID disappeared from the reports page after that, but remains on the boards it was posted on. Only you can see those spam posts now because the account has been deleted. It all makes sense now. The same way I wouldn't see posts on the report screen that were made more then 24 hours ago.
Could we get official clarification on what is appropriate to report and what is not? There is no documentation on this feature that I could find other than to report illegal images and/or content.
>>5168 >Show me. I don't see where you came up with that figure--unless English is not your native language. Translation: I won't bother and I can't read properly my own post. Gotcha, don't worry, I'll just ignore what you wrote.
>>5169 >Translation: I won't bother and I can't read properly my own post. Ah, you're that guy that uses the English translator. Explains why your posts make even less sense than my own. Gotcha. Don't worry--I'll just ignore what you wrote.
>>5158 spam and illegal content
>>5158 Anything you dislike
Ok seriously, the Logan image is just spam at this point so it needs to be deleted like the other spam.
>>5422 >We raided 69 chan with it once. oh the memeries
>>5492 Did you mean mammaries?
>>5493 took me a few seconds to figure that one out
>>5456 You're the one who's mad lol, you've again fake reported some of my posts
Suggestion: New accounts and new IP's can't post images for the first 24 hours from their first post. How is this place ever going to grow when every time I visit here, the front page is full of CP? Come on man
If any spammer wants fifty free posts just to subvert the gmods post your name below
>>5305 Sweet. Send them over to Logan
>>5312 Don't get banned to soon
>>5257 Where is that image from?
>>5324 My harddrive, I made it yesterday.
Hey gad, would you be willing to implement an anonymous feedback/report form for regular users that do not wish to use an email account solely for one-way contact with you? I can see it being potentially abused by the spammer so that is why I suggested regulars only. So no Outlanders (it would be set up like the post donation page where you need to insert your account name and password for it to work). It would give us normal folk a voice to express concerns or suggestions without others giving us crap/mocking us for it on /gg/ or wherever.
>>5145 It's a pretty standard thing on most sites so I don't see why it'd be a hassle or anything. Besides, it'd be more anonymous and communication would only flow in one direction. If I wanted to have a conversation then I would email gad. This would basically be the digital form of a sticky note (I guess).
>>5148 No, it's really not. If you want her to see something, make a post here or email her. Stop creating non existing problems in your head.
sooo ...hey.... when can we expect mass banning of IPs ?
>>5689 I seen that. It looks like you take the good with the bad When you post on ccluster Especially if you have a brand
>>5689 >my question was WHEN , if ever ,can we expect a serious reduction in spam. If gadette ever gets around to finishing the front page (or rebranding in general) I would say probably a year after that if we'd still be around by that time. If not, then don't get your hopes up ever.
sudddenly theres n spam 9:15 PM eastern US time , thurs. ? has something happened ? or just the standard deletions ?
>>5736 Gad made changes and killed some bugs that makes mod more effecticve, see https://ccluster.com/global/thread/21209
This is a continuation thread originating from https://ccluster.com/hentai/thread/57
>>5140 Holy shit, you really are autistic. First, lurk moar. Link spam and CP are the only things that get deleted. At least pay some attention to the obvious..
>>5141 Because I do not need some immature little teenager shitting up my board with their unwanted trolling. You've got /b/ for that. And because there's a slim chance gad might view the thread and observe my viewpoint on why I report some things besides the illegal shit (of which I also report quite often). >>5142 >Link spam and CP are the only things that get deleted Also not true. Several of us here have had randomly reported posts get deleted or deleted in general (whether it be an accident or not), same with post nukings by gad and also account nukings--of which I've had several of with no explanation for as I do not post anything illegal on this site whatsoever. Sounds like you need to lurk moar yourself, kiddo.
>>5146 See, now by reporting this post YOU ARE abusing this feature. Where as I had a legitimate reason to do so on my thread.
>>5152 Actually I didn't report it. Someone else did. But I thank them because gad might actually see it now. If not and it gets deleted then I'll just repost it when I get a chance to.
What is your reasoning for deleting whole accounts gadette? I just tried transferring some posts from one of my other accounts only to find that it has been deleted. That makes TWO accounts now in the last week or so. No post count nuking, no account ban but straight to deletion. What gives? There were over 500 posts on it too. The most recent one was "pine".
>>4871 Have you reported any posts with that account?
>>4871 >"pine" It could be that you're reporting posts that aren't spam Just a thought
>>4874 I won't deny goofing off on it some, but not THAT much. Shit, when I mass reported nudist kid pics on /candy/ awhile back I just got my post count nuked for it each time. And I did a LOT of random reporting--far more than I do now, but I try to report legit shit to avoid post count nukes.
>>4875 There's your problem. Don't report shit with your main account. Make a second account for that, donate it 50 posts.. Report shit with your secondary account. Gad isn't responsible enough not to uncheck a box sometimes when moderating.
>>4876 Well I just made a few more accounts JUST IN CASE something happens to my other main account. I have a habit of forgetting which account I normally report from so this is just to cover my bases. Still really annoying though.
stop worrying just enjoy the show We got a few weeks left until we are seized and the operation finishes And in 2 years time the lucky chums get to read all about the "Top Hat" sting operation in the newspapers
>>4867 looks like there is nothing here yet.
>>5027 the reason being, if someone spots exploits with the source code, I'd have less time to work on them
>>5027 >2months™ Standard answer
>>4978 >So many claims I can't afford Wat?
I suggest the spammer gets MAC banned until no more spam gets dumped onto the site period. Especially the lactual cp shit.
>>4807 Something that today's spambots do in a blink, making it a waste of time.
>>4807 ccluster can not see your mac address.
>>4807 Wrong. CCluster can only seen this, not your Mac id.. See what your browser says about you by visiting the link below: http://webkay.robinlinus.com Think about how 4chan b&s people, it's based on IP & a cookie. Reset just your router, and get b& again for b& evasion. Reset up and clear cookies, your good 2 go
>>4858 I never had luck with that for other sites by resetting my router in the past. Every time I did it I would just get the same fucking IP address over and over again. Even tried getting something different by releasing and renewing my IP through the command line with no dice.
>>4864 This is because you have a static IP. The unplug/reset router trick only works with dynamic IP's.
i am reporting the hardcore cp, but the pics are not blurring. good thing that Gadmin deeleted my sandra pics right away... we wouldnt want that kindda thing here
shit, you have to report them one at a time from insidde the threead, for the main page doesnt work. fuck
>>5084 You forget we used to have a board dedicated to /Sandra/ and it was one of the reasons we went offline, so get over yourself and stick to your blog
Gad, here's a suggestion for the main page. Would you please implement the arrows for top/bottom navigation? It helps to check quickly between new posts and new images when you reload the page. Thanks for the consideration.
>>4922 >Because I can't fap and PgDwn at the same time; it's a no go, boss. Then bind it to something else.
>>4922 Do you have a microphone? Voice command software m8
>>4922 >I only have one arm
>>4923 Not happening boss. I'm dedicating the rest of my appendages to the noble art of fapping. >>4924 I said -all- appendages.
hello admin, let me give you some advice about the spam thing, because it has been an issue on chan sites for quite a while; even in the tor network they have to deal with it since is complex to fix. So in my opinion you gotta get to some kind of compromise, let's say, disable outlanders over monday to thursday, thus you only will need full moderators on weekends kind regards and good luck
>>4883 Spam can and does still get posted with anon ID's. Thanks but we got this >Outlander
>Spam can and does still get posted with anon ID's. but it looks more difficult for spammers to do; you desabled outlanders posting this week and spam almost disappeared
>>4885 Nothing was disabled just business as usual
