So, today I sighted a lot of threads advertisments, from some russian guys. Is someone there that can remove these annoying threads? I think this is necesary. (My thread could be annoying also)

Example:

https://www.frictionalgames.com/forum/thread-28857.html
https://www.frictionalgames.com/forum/thread-28856.html
and more...

Is possible to ban a unregistered user? "CarolynEa"

Thank you for attention, I hope you will pay attention for this thread.

PS: I suppose that I posted again thread in wrong section/.

RE: Important

The threads are gone, but I think I know what you're talking about. They are spam bots that try to lure people into clicking links to their websites, probably to get ad revenue or perhaps infect a virus. Either way the mods are constantly working on it and the threads don't stay very long at a time.

If there isn't one, perhaps whoever is able should set up a captcha for unregistered users to try to prevent this from happening.

These guys needs exactly to expand this bull****. Text is cyrillic and it's easy to say that they are russian

RE: Important

Us moderators are doing everything we can, I am personally removing 20 + threads every day, we can't block them however, we need Jens for that and he has been inactive for a while, presumably on vacation.

Bare with us.

RE: Important

They just need to set-up a basic amnesia-related question as a basic caption (I think).

For example, "Who is the main antagonist in Amnesia:TDD or Amnesia:AMFP?"

And have them type out the answer.

Or be boring and make a number related one.

Setting a captcha is a really effective idea, perphaps , people know that to enter these sites are detrimental.

RE: Important

I'm going to go ahead and close this thread, we are doing everything we can and the site actually does use captcha, the reason as to why the bots are going rampant ( According to an old post by Jens ) is because they have managed to crack the captcha system.

Just, bare with us.
