A bug in the system is allowing anon IDs with high post count (probably from donations) but 0 active days to post disrespecting cooldown times. This is why there is so much spam again. I will attempt to fix this tomorrow. Soon I also intend to code the feature that lets trusted IDs hide reported posts from everyone's view

How is the first step of the new anti spam system holding up in your opinion? Soon I'll start coding the next steps. Check the past global threads for more information
I'll try to add some of the new moderation features in the following days, and I'll make a new global thread soon for us to discuss if spam is out of the way or not
The first step to stop spammers has been taken. Anon IDs now require both a post count and active days to unlock benefits: https://ccluster.com/app/AnonymousID/Benefits All existing anon IDs have been given 100 active days (days since ccluster.com launched) If you want to see the other upcoming changes, check: https://ccluster.com/global/thread/22198

Here is what I am considering doing to stop spammers: >Greatly increase posting cooldown for new Anon IDs When using an anon ID, your IP is actually taken in consideration to decide your posting cooldown as well. Spammers will have to make new accounts (which takes some time) and use new IPs constantly in order to spam, or be subjected to strong posting cooldowns. >Add a time factor to unlock anon ID benefits Basically, to be able to bypass captcha, post images, get faster cooldowns and other benefits, not only you'll need an X post count as usual, but you will also need an anon ID that is X days old. Spammers can't get benefits anymore by spamming 1000 posts in a few minutes. >Reporting posts may have new consequences: If an __untrusted__ anon ID post is reported, that anon ID becomes locked from posting until all reports are dismissed. If an untrusted anon ID post is reported by a highly trusted ID, all posts made by that user are automatically hidden as well. You may re-report a post with your highly trusted ID to achieve this effect. If an IP poster is reported by a highly trusted ID, all posts made by that user are automatically hidden as well and he is prevented from posting until reports are dismissed. >Range IP bans for known proxies and tor, followed by enabling outlander posting again With their posts being mass hidden and with added difficulty in posting, hopefully we will not be an attractive audience to them anymore. And to make it clear, if your account is trusted, then you are immune to other users hiding your posts. If you feel these changes are not enough to stop spammers, let me know of your ideas or how other sites do it. Otherwise I'll start coding them this week.

Starting tomorrow I'll begin thinking of a solution to stop the spammers, for both anon IDs and IP posting (other than IP range banning proxies/TOR when using IP only posting) Please post your suggestions in here, even if they are complex.
>>21959 Gmods can in fact delete non trusted IDs I have read the suggestions and made a note of them. Once I go over everything I will post the intended changes to stop spammers in a new global thread, before actually coding them.
Today I'll be removing all threads and posts that had their images accidentally deleted a few months ago, to clean up. I will keep some posts from /pc/ and all from /nsa/ and restore images manually in those cases, by uploading something myself that is related to the posts, just so we keep that content.
this fucking spammer >.<
Within 1 or 2 weeks I should start mass banning IPs from known proxies and TOR for outlander posts (as usual anonymous IDs can post regardless of their IP). For now, because spam is too great to handle even with the help of gmods, I'll be disabling outlander posts altogether until the IPs are mass banned.
