Nothing instills hope in my heart that spam might possibly be addressed more than the official "forum spam is an issue" thread being absolutely inundated with spam replies...

Ahhh, @enunciator this is so true! And yet look. 👀  The download.jpg.24015f71dfe4fee666df2cf86b96bb5c.jpg continues.

Thank you for the tip

I wonder if even one of the above posters can specify what precisely they think is "great" or even what they are thanking Mr. Jensen for. Especialy since is the verytype of posts they are making that continue to plague 🏴‍☠️ the FF.

Which part of that text did you find valuable? 

"In the previous forum, we had a system that I’ll call “trust levels”.  These allowed users who had hit certain and specific milestones to unlock new features and posting limits.  The more quality posts and interactions, the more trust you gained"

The key there is “quality posts”. 
As mentioned before there are “thank you” and “congrats” or “like” emoji that you can put on the post. 
it’s great that you found information valuable but you can just put “thanks” emoji in the post instead of clogging the forum with thank you messages.

I don’t see any difference so far. Maybe it's just me but the same spam posts are still there  🤔

Yup, I see the same.

I’ve been away for a week or so and it looks to me like it did. Maybe I’m just well-rested or something. 

Perhaps I need another vacation.

woooooooow the spam is INSANE.

What about a minimum of words per post?

It wouldnt be the solution, but it would mean more effort for the spammers. 🙂

Yes, but the old way seemed much more effective, they would be hidden after 2 reports, wasn't it? If I remember correctly it didn't need an official mod to do something, it was enough if 2 people deemed it irrelevant... moderating as a community would make mods' lives so much easier.

I agree. This forums is a complete mess for 3 moderators. its IMPOSSIBLE to moderate this, especially when they dont have efficient tools (such as spam detection).

Its crazy to think that a huge tech company like Fiverr doesnt invest in something like that.

So community driven spam protection could be the solution. Although the report system can be spammed too.

The solution really is spam detection by software.

Btw, I think most of the spammers here arent even real accounts, just bots that are supposed to drive organic traffic to their fiverr pages or "activity" on their account. Its really simple to program something like that, if Fiverr doesnt do anything to prevent it. I know for example Instagram detects unusual behavior, such as cklicking though EVERY thread and liking EVERY comment. No organic forum user would do that. Its simple to detect that by software. But obviously, nobody cares enough.
