Could someone please take care of it?
I've reported 8 different poster id's so far...
I do wonder what happened to the plan of having multiple moderators or the idea of only letting people post without the need of approval once they hit a certain amount of points or level?
It's been going on now for over an hour and so far I haven't seen any evidence of anyone actual taking care of them.
Being a US based corporation, I rather suspect SW's in-house mods are all still asleep, and will be for at least the next couple hours.
Maybe they should appoint mods at some of the global VARs, for just such an occasion?
ISTR from the last attack, that the URLs they post generally lead to sites offering electrical appliance repair
Please report abuse the post, this would at least do some help.
As I stated above, I have been reporting them.
I suspect, like you, that indeed they haven't appointed anyone with full mod. privileges to combat spam that isn't located in the US, or if they did, they only did so for a few. Which in itself is ludicrous.
Deepak, that's all what we can do, reporting abuse as soon as we see it and wail until someone state side finally arrives at the office to see that there's a problem and has been so for a few hours. All they, or any mod, should need would be the unique user names for the first time they posted the spam message.
Here's an idea. Allow us to report spammers on their profile page, instead of flagging individual posts.
Ian Worrall you just took the words out of my mouth.
So it begs the question how much control they actual have over this forum?
Out of curiosity I took a look at Jive
Jive-n & Jive-x: Spam prevention service and 3r... | Jive Community
To qoute :
2. SPAM PREVENTION SERVICE: Customers can choose to turn on the spam micro-service which is off by default and available starting 2015.3 and 8.0.2. Customers would need to work with support to turn on the service. There is no additional cost to the customer for turning on the Spam Prevention Service
This would enclude :
.....the Spam Prevention service has the ability to: 1. Moderate all non-english posts if the community is set to English. 2. Moderate all posts by user accounts < 24 hours old. 3. Moderate all posts that are repetitive.

In other words, if I apprehend this correctly and if they are working with the most recent version of Jive, they would be able without any additional costs to set it up so that fully automatically most Spam attacks would be prevented to ever even be actually posted.
Thank you to the powers that be that have stopped the spam.
Are you referring to this?...
I was wondering this too. The last time this happened that was the plan to restrict users below a certain number of points from posting....although I'm not sure how you get points if you can't post. I checked one of the profiles & they joined today & were posting straight away. The first 9 to 10 pages were all spam when I checked at 7:30am (UK) this morning.
It certainly needs looking into but I guess it's not as straight forward as we think but at least some evidence that SolidWorks is trying would be nice.
This time the attack started at 5.47am, I sure hope it doesn't take the powers that be until past 1pm again, like it did yesterday, to respond.
Awesome!!! Currently 28 pages of it in 3 hours
isn't reporting 10 pages of spam a "Badge"
under the new system? - kelef
EDIT: I've done 2(pages that is)
A bloody gold medal I should hope for 10 pages
I just reported a few posts to highlight it to the SW's team.
Hopefully it will be sorted by Richard Doyle when he wakes up in a few hours
Today, I've taken to adding "When will you activate Jive's FREE moderation facility?" to all my spam reports.
If they can get it free as Peter suggests, we should push SW into doing it!
yeah, they seem to hold to
a couple of hours behind europe-
and yes considering that Jive states that it's available for
SPAM PREVENTION SERVICE: Customers can choose to turn on the spam micro-service which is off by default and available starting 2015.3
and as far as I can tell SW is using:
I find myself wondering why something so essential these days is "off by default"?
Richard needs to go on third shift
Today it's getting close on exceeding 7 hours of constant spam. Anywhere from 2 to 5 messages per minute.
I couldn't even be bothered to read up on older questions/anwsers becomes of the wall of spam.
I'm not sure how most feel but to stop this just don't allow non-subscribers to post. Or at least during Richard's sleep time...
I was trying to be helpful, now I'm being Moderated, can't win.
