I am unsure that sums up the planned message. My previous remark explains why these two changes haven't been made together with some related information. The first being that Runescape is for the RuneScape community as a whole (not only RS3), and the second being that automatic filtering for this kind of post was attempted and found not to be possible to accurately accomplish. We're open to suggestions that could be possible to implement without detracting from the purpose of this subreddit and its own community.
I mean, yeah your previous remark lays out just why the communities suggestions, in your opinion, are inferior to the machine you have in place currently. If anything the view represented by the OP are more in line with this'vision' of the subreddit (needing to include the two RS3 and OSRS (that in itself is silly being they've seperate content, dev teams etc. but like my opinion man)) by stating your articles has a house here but when its regarding anything in specificity to go elsewhere, very similar to the way the Reddit FC is/was operate.
So rather than tuning ity'all yanked on it? Tell me how your staff believes your system isn't fine in comparison with community ideas. Let's have a thought experiment while I've got your time.
Rather than asking a community of 234,037 individuals and having a bot hit your inbox close instantly together:"If you believe you have received a phishing attempt please verify sender address (instance ), domain (example), here are the usual examples (hyperlink ). In case you have gotten an effort please report it (helpful navigation for forum post."
In regard to our system"working good as is," we are aware that it's not ideal, but there isn't always a solution that fulfills issues from all perspectives. Additionally, there are other issues taking up our time, and we're just volunteers, so we don't always have the time to dedicate to tackle a number of those smaller problems. My previous remarks were meant to explain why the situation stands as it now does for the specific issues mentioned, not explain why things will not change. We are open to making changes that would be beneficial for everyone.
A vast majority of consumers view the subreddits as being independent anyhow ( runescape = RS3 and 2007 runescape = OSRS), so this is not something we have had to address prominently because the quantity o
OSRS Accounts, we used to have so that it was removed, but there were far too many false positives together with posts which were not filtered. Our reasons for needing to filter these posts were to remove articles which have an uncensored phishing url (possibly putting other users at risk) and eliminating posts which attempted to ask Jagex because of help associated with a hijacking after getting one of these emails (Rule 7).
While mechanically flagging these posts might not be practical, we may have the ability to boost our Account Help Wiki webpages by incorporating advice. The official RuneScape Wiki has some great information in respect to these scams in addition to many others that are found out and inside of Runescape.
Yes, those who remark connected to another sub them, but sometimes keep it on the opposite and only they have a tendency to delete the post on here. If a response doesn't work a warning that appears before submitting? We know of the bottom into the OSRS sub at the Partner Subreddits segment, but most people who post OSRS only themed articles, do not even appear there, as they didn't knew the existence of the 2007 Runescape subreddit and are thankful whenever the people who remark mention, its becoming clear that the bottom resulting in the sub on the side bar isn't enough. I had believed the one that was phishing would be hard to implement, props for trying. On filtering phishing urls before thinking 16, I concur.
But yea about phishing some more action might have to be taken, these malicious classes are advancing their ways to catch unsuspecting victims increasingly nowadays. We have phishing streams on twitch, phishing ads to RuneScape and OSRS in most social media platforms (I wouldn't be shocked if one of these malicious ads eventually make its way to this sub ad locations) along with also the classic phishing emails and fake websites. I have even seen some poor attempts to phishing being submitted on this sub that result in bogus forums and I am glad they've been eliminated before anybody fell victim.
The real problem with phishing posts may also be the spam that the sub will eventually get, phishing emails have been sent in a wave to different mails of potential players, let's say like 10 percent of these have a reddit accounts, they are going to want to warn everyone else from their attempt and so there will be several posts looking the same, all of which may be oblivious it's been submitted before. It can eventually find tedious. Which then can lead others to ignore a legit clueless player who's asking whether it is real or not, that's why I suggested an automated response of some type, at least a little warning to take care or something like this. Additionally thanks for clarifying the email to forward phishing mails has become over, I understood of this forum thread, although not the fact that they stopped the Buy RuneScape 2007 Gold
f OSRS-related admissions this is minimal. 1 complication with post filtering is it can not be presumed users will always utilize criteria in a post that will visit a filter since this isn't necessarily the situation. AutoModerator filters based on particular standards, so building a precise list that is only specific to what you're trying to catch is not always possible.
Some users know how to deliberately bypass filters, making them useless, and if we create a filter overly broad, more articles are filtered than warranted. This creates more frustration for users and much more work for us while we'd like to avoid over-moderating. We may look in to trying to revive a filter to get phishing email inquiries, but that is something for us to discuss in private one of the mod team. The previous filter was unable to achieve what was desired at the moment, so it had been disabled for the time being. These articles do discuss an obsession with other filters within our subreddit, so a number of them are eliminated for different factors.
