If a user has x amount of rep, or a badge, that person can flag any dubious first post, the suspected spammer and its post/s get sent to the corner.
The newb gets limited to a hidden forum, and mods give a thumbs down later.


That could backfire because rep can be gamed up reasonably high by a bot account (for example, the rep bonuses for views to profile), and if there are no post limits, and only low rep users can be 'crowd-modded', bots could very quickly escape 'rep hell' by gaming views/posting rapidly.

If this was done, the rep level req for users to ban posts would have to be very high (at least 5000, maybe 10,000) to curtail abuse.

I think it's a bad idea because if there is an exploit in the rep/badge system anywhere, spammers could start banning legit topics. :shock:

@TiAm If you could only flag first posts it might work, but I sort of doubt it's worth the trouble to work out something as complicated it would be. The whole posting to get rep is a bad idea to begin with imo.

Dunno, maybe have a contest to make up a bunch of different Captchas using C2.

I've just realised Scirra gets 200+ regustrations a day, no way you'd want a team of 6(?) to deal with that.

Either stick with the NRU group permissions and let users with 1k+ posts approve/disapprove or use motionCaptcha.

Or ban Russia as an IP range, that's a depressingly effective tactic...

EDIT// Only just realised C2 could make a captcha - Newt just blew my mind. Haven't tested it but it'd be a bit bloated surely?

Maybe make it so the runtimes could be swapped, and used all the same resources.
A template... sorta.

I would just report the post (the warning triangle) and eventually it will be cleaned. They are human too. :)

It could be a simple game with leaderboard. To pass the registration and be able to post the user would have to get over certain score or level. It could be also a fun way to present C2 capabilities to a new user.

maybe we can use this topic for post the spamer and use the report option too.
