Thread: Idea to fix Clan Chat Spam, Phishing

    Lightbulb Idea to fix Clan Chat Spam, Phishing

    Recently we've had to reopen our clan because of low population. Opening the clan opens it up to overwhelming amounts of spam, and scams(phishing). There is currently no way to effectively combat this, while also trying to strengthen clan numbers. This is an unfortunate side effect. I have an extremely simple solution. Just give the leader, co-leader, and elders the ability to remove comments from chat retroactively. This would decrease the effectiveness of phishing, and potentially even kill it off entirely. People will know that their messages will just be deleted so why bother. Here is what it might look like

    ...Not sure how to get this image to show up in the thread post, tried HTML tags, tried uploading, tried linking via URL. If anyone knows how to put the image in the post please let me know.

    if a player leaves the clan there messages should be removed from chat.

    You could have a system that auto bans players that attempts to phish or scam. It may seem a bit harsh, but it's better than letting it happen.

    yeah but how do they detect it? They have a system that allows players to report, but you can only report 1 person and there is a cool down, it says you recently reported someone and you have to wait. So the system they have now does very little to stop the scammers thats why you see so many.

    You could have the system detect key words like "free gems" or "www.totallynotascam.clever". You get the idea. Right?
