What are all of these spam threads appearing?

I haven't been to any of the websites but it's clogging up all of the whats new and it's kind of annoying.

I guess there's no way to stop it aside from blocking the profiles individually when they pop up? Has anyone been to any of the sites that have been spammed?

I think they are websites at least...

    Hi.

    Every once and a while, bots figure out a way through the registration systems of high volume forums. This is not something unique to us; even Blizzard has big bot problems on their forums before. This is one of those situations of weapons vs armor; sometimes one is stronger than the other. When the weapon is more powerful, heeeeeello spam.

    At any rate, we're on invite only registration for the time being to try to deal with the recent influx of Korean bots. Sorry for the spam, we're doing our best to deal with it.

    Thanks,

    I thought the invite only would stop spammers...............unless we got moles up in here.

    Just don't reply to any of them, possibly alerting the botnet, and we should be fine.
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    Everyone (should) be mindful that if there isn't a new generation after my generation, the FGC (fighting game community) will basically become extinct, so it's important to think about the future.

    Just a quick semi-related FYI:

    If you see a thread with a video posted from the NightshiftSurpeme channel, he's not a bot. He's some loser who is notorious for shit-posting and linking his dumbass videos on various forums.

    In other words, feel free to give him "constructive comments" since you aren't alerting a bot net.

    I think they've evolved to where marking them as spam alerts them to activity. All hope is lost.

    @MrWizard any chance we can lock the forum down to invite mode again?

    Slightly different idea- can you disable or otherwise filter out posting thread titles with non-western alphabet characters?

    Wouldn't stop every bot, but would knock down the current plague anyway.

    I'm all about invite-only subs if it stops Korea from blasting us in the ass.
    This is offensive.

    We're coping with it the best we can for now. I'm sure there will be an update soon.

    If you see a bot post, please don't respond to it. Using the spam tag is appropriate.

    Negro, I know how to deal with a bot thread. It's just tedious. Invite-only kept the fuckers at bay.
