For people having issues with the mailing spam due to newly tutorials being posted, please consider temporarily unsubscribing and check newer tutorials manually until we get the spamming issue fully resolved.

Thanks.

It's a real spam-bomb. I have already deleted tens of mails regarding new spam-tutorials... And they keep coming...

Dear:
I am getting a huge number of notifications of tutorials.
When you open the link nothing appears.
What's going on?
I receive more than 40 emails daily.

Attach Print Screen.

Someone is spamming Scirra forums and tutorials. They do that from different IP addresses, so Scirra can't ban them.
When you open the link, nothing appears because Ashley and moderators delete those spams as soon as posible.

It's becoming quite a PITA... My email is being flooded by these "new tutorial notifications".... How are they getting added without a valid user account?

Unfortunately its as easy to make new email addresses as it is to get new ip's.
You have to look at it as nothing more than a child throwing a tantrum.

I've unsubscribed from the tutorial notifications. It was getting hard to spot real emails in between all the Scirra spam.

It didn't work - still getting spam. I'll try unchecking all the subscription boxes on my profile.


Ahh it didn't work. I've changed my email... make it stop :lol:

I suppose it takes time for the mailing list to update.

Thanks.


Would it be possible to have global temporary unsubscribe (set from admin level) until problem is solved?
