ja:Shoestring spam reports
Hi Alex, this is Shoestring from ja:WT.
Recently we have a lot of spams and spam accounts on ja:, mostly from English speakers (around 5 to 10 a day for the couple of month).
Have you made some modification for your spam filters? Also, we haven't heard from IBcaldera and Mkataoka recently, and they seems not to be on the en:WT Bureaucrat list. Could you tell me their current status?--Shoestring (talk) 08:22, 10 April 2017 (EDT)
- Hi Shoestring. I have enabled and updated an abuse filter with hopes that it will bring spam back down to a manageable level. Tyen (talk) 16:58, 11 April 2017 (EDT)
- Update. The filter I enabled was catching false positives and had to turn it off. I'm asking our tech team to help adjust the code. Tyen (talk) 18:06, 11 April 2017 (EDT)
- Hello Shoestring! Thank you for your message. Sorry for a late response I've been away for the Easter holidays. I hope you're doing well. I see that Tyson is already helping you here.
- Tyson, any updates from the tech team?
- Shoestring, did the situation get any better?
