Either Scirra has stopped it, or I have (for myself) by going into my tutorial subscriptions and unchecking the broad categories (i.e. All English Tutorials).

The method of unchecking tutorial sub categories , which I used early on, did not work, at least not for me. Looks like it has now stopped though in last 10-15 minutes, so I assume Scirra stopped it.

They are probably trying to destroy the reputation of Construct 2 and upcoming Construct 3 . May be other similar companies competing with scirra like yoyogames and gamemaker studio are the ones behind this attack? Because few months ago Adventure Maker website (desktop point and click game maker engine with drag and drop) was also attacked and their website is down due to sub attacks

@danyald I have my doubts they are trying to hurt Scirra. It wastes time, yes, but not reputation. Besides, this kind of attack actually costs money, and eventually it will stop because it won't be worthwhile to generate any more spam.

I'm now getting hit with loads of bogus tutorial emails again, so yeah you're right Cliffu, unsubscribing doesn't work. There was a third explanation apparently - the spammer was just taking a coffee break, haha... Time to add a new spam filter!

@Cliffu: The topics are not deleted but the duplicates are merged to this already existing topic posted in the correct place in the forums.
Please don't post yet another useless duplicate.

@all: Reminder : https://www.scirra.com/forum/spam-issue_p921298?#p921298
Yes, Scirra is aware, yes they are doing what they can to get rid of those waves of spam.
Sorry about the inconvenience.

Thanks a lot for your patience and comprehension.

I have been gone for about an hour and returned to find the spam to my email continues. The strategy of unsubscribing from tutorials - which I have done early on - does NOT work. I still am getting spam long after I unsubscribed.

Thanks.
