    Some really spammy posts by gullywin , I think it’s the same crowd that was running the jonny Utah account you ,admin, shutdown a few months back.
    Can you politely spend a bit more time checking your forum because as of late accounts such as gullywin have been robot spamming your threads.
    Is there a direct correlation between the dwindling number of real users posting and the rise of clowns like gullywin and company eccentric robo spamming?
    It’s your forum , we can just leave and let the place become robospam interverse forum.
    Cheers

    Hi Punkcity,

    Please provide more information.

    What are they spamming?

    Their posts seem to be on-topic.

    Their posts sound AI-generated, but it's impossible to say with 100% certainty.

    That's because AI-generated content is impossible to correctly detect and defeat and is here to stay whether anyone likes it or not. That being said, if posts are on-topic and not spamming a business or link, does it really matter?

    It's a slippery slope if we start censoring members because we believe they may be using AI for the content of their posts. AI detectors, for example, have produced false positives even for the US Constitution, and we certainly don't want to risk censoring innocent members just because we incorrectly assume they are using AI.

    As Elon Musk has alluded to, forcing all users to pay a subscription may be the only way to actually deal with the AI question.

    Hi admin guy , for starters the time stamps are very close per each individual thread reply, the time it takes to locate a forum,then locate a thread and reply a post of upwards of a paragraph occasionally, then switch to another forum and locate a thread to post to in the time span of 1 to 2 minutes SUGGESTS ROBO STYLE.
    Example of recent posts screenshot

    At worst it’s spam , here in skipthopia spam is usually termed useless unwanted nonsense posts, meaning that it hardly has induced responses to gullywin nonsense posts. Also I assume it’s tread bumping as a lot of those threads robospam reply’s to are up to 5plus years old .

    As a descendant of a monkey I can only post a certain number of posts , usually about two consecutive posts, the third post gets a time stamp barring from your forum and each subsequent post gets a longer time barring. I understand that to stop posters going on tilt in a mad shifting way that so many sub-come to on occasion, lol. Hence it appears to be a robo poster
    Cheers

    Thank you for the additional details.

    Spam generally refers to unwanted messages of a commercial nature, not on-topic posts on old threads or multiple on-topic posts that aren't advertising anything.

    Are you suggesting we increase the Minimum Time Between Posts?

    It's currently set to 60 seconds here at GF, meaning members need to wait 60 seconds between posts to keep them from flooding the site.

    We can increase that amount, but it will apply to all members.

    Yes
    Im happy for you to consider that as an option as personally the increase interval time between posts doesn’t really affect me.
    If that can deter posters such as gullywin crap post bombing ( as per screenshot example already provided) old thread bumping and the bland vanilla read robospam content then YES , super YES THANK YOU from me.
    I’m sure at LEAST 1 other poster here this forum would also endorse that.


    BUT ultimately Administration guy it’s your forum . If you are ok with the likes of gullywin, Johnny Utah etc posting robospamish carpet bombing indiscriminately old thread bumps or just the general thrashing of your forum then that’s your business.
    The idea of getting traffic generated posts I understand from a business perspective and I say good on you if that’s the sole reason your forum is operating on the interverse. Thus quasi sanctioning the likes of gullywin and co. I assume that’s just another reason the silent majority will increase their nonexistent engagement via zero posts here.
    So we get more chonjasmine, gullywin etc posters here. Cheers.
