Citizens of the Imperium!
On Monday, August 8th at 3 PM PDT, we rolled out a forum update to address the spamming that we have been seeing over the past few weeks. We identified a bug that was causing some accounts to bypass the spam filters we had in place. In addition to fixing this, we are also implementing a new anti-spam measure, which I’ll outline below.
You can now flag comments as spam. If a comment gets enough spam reactions, it will automatically disappear and be sent for moderator consideration. This will eliminate the need for manual moderation work and allow you, the community, to self-moderate!
To mark a comment as spam, mouse over it until the menu appears on the bottom. Mouse over “Flag” in the bottom left and select Spam.
Using the Spam button for any reason other than to report spam (such as hiding comments you disagree with) will not be tolerated. The Terms & Conditions have been updated to reflect this. Please tag responsibly!
This is part of an ongoing effort to improve the forums with your feedback. I’ve moved the New forum issues thread to Support & Bug Reports and all forum feedback should now be directed there.
For the Emperor!
