What do you all think would happen to me if I were to do this??

When I look and the forum and GE is flooded with spam, what if I were to bump up old recent threads to counter the spam threads! Do you think a MOD if they're real or a auto BOT MOD would ban me for bumping up so many threads with posts in threads such as just "ya" or "." with bumping up real threads to counter spam threads do you think I'd get a warning or temp ban from doing this? 

  • Is this forum in that much trouble?

    Or you could just spend time doing something else and ignore the forums.

  • Last time I saw someone bump a thread they quickly deleted the bump post and said nothing as usual. So yeah, maybe just make a bunch of new game related threads instead.

  • I think you're pretty much safe to do whatever you want on these forums at this point. And honestly does anybody really care if they get banned at this point? Probably not lol.

    I think that statement is pretty false. The forum is still moderated, and as regulars we all know the rules. I wouldn't care if someone was to bump a thread as long as it's recent and it can spark a discussion again, but bumping threads just to cover up spam is basically as bad as spamming.

     

    That and since the spammers read the forums, they would just have more people spam and the cycle repeats itself.

  • Guilty party here, I did that over a week end. I was flaging every spam post and was trying to keep the last 5 new post at the top for others to see without having to go through 10 pages of spam to find them. I was returning every hour or so to keep up with tagging spam. In part to test if a mod would get a notice and come clean them out on a week end. They did not get removed until Monday and reporting had no effect at all. I have not received any notices for any mods.

  • I think a fresh start is what this site needs most. Delete everything and start from scratch. Maybe rename it "support forum" instead of "community forum". 

     

    I've decided that my account needs the same thing, so I will be changing my user ID as soon as that update becomes available to me.

  • Not delete but lock n archive everything but start from scratch yes!!! At this point why even go out of my way to make this forum great like you and so many/few left on here want but in the end Sony doesn't care or we have the worst if not one of the most bad forum team management teams for a forum to date that I've seen?

  • All flagging is probably pointless -- flagging spam definitely is. What a waste of time.

    Hm, I guess that's why the spam and accounts I report on a daily basis get removed/banned.

  • It's rather arrogant and ignorant to assume the mods are removing spam threads BECAUSE you report them. They wll do that anyway. You obviously have never been a forum moderator. IF there is a moderator monitoring the forum, they will see the threads pop up before they see any report about it. And nobody has to tell them that it's spam and it needs to be removed. The only real question is, when are they even watching? From the state of the forum, it's not very often. In fact, they probably find a multitude of reports about spam threads that are plaine to see, is more annoying to them than helpfull.
