  • For the amount of spam we get they do a Great job Monday-Friday. I hope they figure how to block the spamer at some point and hope they can put that effort into the forum it self.

  • Having someone dump the bucket once per week but never fixing the leaking roof is hardly a "great job".

  • My guess is you happened to come on this forum after the spam posts were deleted. So far it seems like Monday, Wednesday and Friday someone comes and cleans up the forum until it get flooded again.

  • Maybe the person dumping the bucket does not have the tools to fix the roof? Try just tagging the spam post and reporting as spam over one weekend. Thats no easy task considering the rate of one new spam message post between every 3 to 15 minuts.

  • You think a moderator has to tag posts the same way members do? lol. I don't know for sure how this message board software works, but with other boards the moderator and admin tools have methods of easily mass deleting unwanted threads. One person could easily clear the forum of spam within a few minutes.

     

    I guarantee there is no way this forum is being monitored regularly. There is nobody diligently keeping up with the spam every day.

  • I dont know but if the moderation end is built to the point the user end is then they are both lacking a lot of tools. From what I have seen Monday-Friday the spam seems to get removed at least once once per day. and weekends it builds untill sometime on Monday. When I said Great, it was me expressing my greatfulness that at the very least someone is doing a little something here. But like everyone else here I dont know. It very well could be a well paid employee doing very little, then going out to party. I try to stay positive in my reactions untill I know the whole story. Its so very hard to judge in a text only online world. Even more so when there is Zero interaction from Sony.

    I too get bummed out and very disapointed at what I see on the Top consoles Offical Forums page. That happens on more days then I like to admit. I have opened the reply box also many times and then just clicked the utube URL or turned on my PS4 to play a game. Just to keep from venting my Disapointment and lack of understand why Sony would allow this here. I have tweeted too Sony people and replied to surveys on other sony site such as the blog and @playstation "Your site is fine what everyone needs to talk about is how bad a state the Offical PlayStation Forums are in" All in hopes the right person would hear about it and do something about it. Well I certainly pulled the hope cloud out from under my own feet I guess its time to do something else and return here at another time.

  • I find it hysterical to see this thread on top of so many spam threads, especially knowing it will be in the middle of tens of spam threads soon.

  • Ah yes, great job whoever deleted the spam for those three days, it was amazing!  Now if they could only be bothered to spend a few minutes to delete it on the weekend, that would be fantastic!

  • Wouldn't it be better to block the spam from happening in the first place?

  • Apparently, that’s like the hardest thing in the World to do.
