Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / How to deal with spammers?

Des has pretty much said it all. While spamming is annoying your best bet is to just leave because what fun is playing by yourself ;)

Topic: Kongregate / Should kong get rid of the spam filter?

Why not just disable the kong spam bot filter until it is fixed? At my work if something gets rolled out with bugs, once it is found to be disruptive it is removed until fixed, I’m sure most other companies do this as well.

You construct a dam to stop a river’s flow. One day it rains and a small amount of water floods over the dam. The town calls for the entire dam to be torn down for “repairs.”

It’s possible the spam filter catches 99% of spam, and what we perceive as a massive spam problem is actually that single percent of overflow. Of course I’m exaggerating for simplicity’s sake, but my point is: Forum traffic isn’t halted at the very moment, but removing the filter might halt it completely by releasing all of the spam it DOES block. Removing it could be the greater of the two “disruptive evils.”

The difference between your work example is the phrase “rolled out.” The spam filter has been around for quite a long time, so any problems with it are new-ish (past threads had people generally satisfied with it). It might be difficult to identify the problems if the program is taken down. So while it isn’t completely destroying the forums, it’s better to let it stay up and make users aware of the problems.

Lloyd is correct, the spam does actually stop and unbelievable amount of spam. Just imagine for one second a page represents a gallon of water, now imagine that this water is then dumped into a tanker ships ballast. Now imagine this ballist is full. Now in perspective the spam can be anywhere from A-Z pages worth of spam on any given day at any given time which is then all reviewed by the administration and restored if it has been removed under a false positive.

Absolutely every single post I make since registration gets immediately removed. I’ve tried leveling up but nothing changed.

This is your only removed post. (The spam bot didn’t remove this post either)

Topic: Kongregate / Awful Chat Mods

No one can really anticipate a mods true motives. If you feel a moderator is breaking the rules and abusing their privileges then you can report them. Whether their motive is naive or intentional, there isn’t a real way to anticipate how a mod is going to act. Moderators are people and nobody is the same. As a moderator we are held to a higher standard to then regular users and yes indeed we do get punished as a regular user would. I’m sure you’ve already heard of mods being “demoted” or “demodded” for varies reasons and one of them being a very prominent community forum poster. So mods being demodded does actually happen, administration takes it very seriously and will often times try to work things out with the moderator in question. We are people too, we mess up, we’re only human.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / Not able to play

If you’re getting a synchronizing…Please wait error, set an exception for TDP4 in your firewall, also make sure you set an exception for it in your antivirus also as many of them block it by default and make sure that you have the required ports open(not sure which ones off the top of my head). This should fix it.

Topic: Technical Support / dev comment manipulation

No, developers have no control over anything outside of their game so they can’t delete comments, ban and silence people in chat, Etc. But if they happen to be a forum mod in their forum they can hide posts and lock threads. If you feel a dev is abusing the comments or ratings system you can report them via their profile.

Suggest 1: you can’t be in two rooms at one time. Make sense yet? You can only be in one game chat and one public chat for various reasons obviously.

You are correct you should report cheaters on the DP forums, but you don’t need the IP and a screenshot or video is the only thing necessary.

Topic: Kongregate / Winter '15 Suggestion Thread

If you ever have a question about a post being removed, I’d be more then happy to tell you. If I lock a thread I usually leave a reason. I try my best to keep people in the loop, but that doesn’t mean I can tell you anything and everything you wanna know that goes on behind the scenes.
