    Recent Bot Issue and Banned Accounts

    Recently, WTFRPG has experiences a huge influx of bots on the site. The staff of WTF have been working to combat the issue. However, in the staffs attempts to ban bot accounts some legitimate users may have been caught in the fray.

    The staff ask now that all users with zero posts (or fewer than 5) to please make an effort to get 5 or more posts out on the forum. This will help the staff in distinguishing users from lingering bot accounts.

    In addition staff ask that friends of banned users take the time to post here if their friends accounts have been affected. Please provide the affected accounts username so staff can lift any ban placed on the accounts.

    The staff thank all users for the time and efforts in helping us through this by reporting bot spam.

    Please do not send this account PMs/etc. It is not monitored daily by staff and does not accept PMs/etc.

    Thankfully, the spam registrations are slowing down and we aren't getting as many advertising posts as last week. Just keep letting us know if any legitimate users are experiencing problems and we'll reverse the bans as soon as possible.

    Ban lifted! Be sure that they get those posts in so this doesn't happen again. Sorry for the inconvenience!
    And I hope you have not a single still moment.

    Steelygreye, I think. Would they get an alert that their account is active again?
    "Ew. Did you check to see what date this raw milk expires?"
    "Yeah, what happened?"
    "I found a curd."
    "Did you shake it?"
    "No."
    "It's the cream. The fat floats to the top."
    "Oh, I just thought it was Bridgid's backwash the first couple of times."
    "Wait, why didn't you say 'ew' when you thought that?"

    Here is a bot: http://www.wtfrpg.com/forum/member.p...03-Arridstoorp
    Is there a thread for reporting them?

    So my friend Sevvus ) was banned as well as my friend ( Bridgetabee ) who I was showing the site just now got banned. She had literally just made the account.
    (maybe you can ban them after a day so real people actually have time to make post's?)
    What was that? My axe is for your face? Oh, I already knew that!

    Not sure how Knerd has been handling that, but I'll get right on adding them back to the site! Apologies!

    The two should be all set now!

    Unfortunately, it's a Catch-22. Waiting any significant length of time after a spam account registers means that the forums will be flooded with ads. We've seen quite a lot posted this week and it's not only annoying, but very frustrating and upsetting. I'd like to prevent that spam as much as possible, but the only way to do so is to nip it in the bud. This means frequently banning any new suspicious accounts that sign up throughout the day. To let them sit around is to give them ample time to post everywhere.

    The staff is doing our best to prevent legitimate users from getting caught up in the bannings, but some people will always slip through. It's absolutely not intended, so we'll try to quickly reverse any accidental ban that takes place!

    I will say that all of you guys have been awesome while putting up with this spam attack. It's been a stressful few weeks, but everyone has banded together to report the spam ads and help new users get un-banned. Trust me, all that energy hasn't gone unnoticed! <3

    There is a bot posting on this now. XD
    "Ew. Did you check to see what date this raw milk expires?"
    "Yeah, what happened?"
    "I found a curd."
    "Did you shake it?"
    "No."
    "It's the cream. The fat floats to the top."
    "Oh, I just thought it was Bridgid's backwash the first couple of times."
    "Wait, why didn't you say 'ew' when you thought that?"

    I'm afraid that there aren't any accounts that currently use those usernames. Did your friends finish the registration process? It looks like they can come back and complete the registration in order to get their accounts.

    Hey! I managed to make an account without incident - after prompting from a friend whose account was blocked within minutes of her making it. She told me about this site in the first place, and I've been meaning to make an account, and she told me that she needed a member to write here that she was actually not a bot... So I figured I'd give it a shot (if my account's still active by the time I post this!)

    Her username was Jezabela, if you could maybe have a look at that? Thank you! Good luck with the bot nightmare!
    We were never tragedies; we were emergencies. Call 911, tell them I'm having a fantastic time.
