Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

Do we have any way of reporting a user as a spammer?

I have one to report:

Kevin   August 19, 2009, 12:12 PM

I see you've removed this account, but they are still spamming us.

Paulo Brabo Team 23   August 19, 2009, 12:23 PM

Indeed, I had to delete 15 of his messages this morning -- one by one.

Maybe it's time for a mass comment deletion interface, no?

Maria Lyskjær Jørgensen   August 19, 2009, 01:38 PM

you guys rock, thanks for letting us know. the guy is blocked now.
In the future if you stumble upon spam, could one of you hold the deletion and send us a link to the photo with the spam comment and so that we're able to block the spammer :-)

Is there any chance we get a "Mark this comment as spam" button?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   August 19, 2009, 04:24 PM

There's a spam link there, right?

IkoTikashi   August 20, 2009, 06:11 AM

Hm well, at my photos, yes. If I look at other's people's photos, it's not.

Here, nilam123's comment on this photo looks like spam to me.

Alright, I've done dirty stuff to those comments; really, stuff like that should be caught by the spam filters.

Paulo Brabo Team 23   September 05, 2009, 01:25 AM

Is a very annoying spammer, with his endless stuff. He's been around for a while now.

For instance here:

The crazy stuff is that his profile greets me with a
"File not found" alert. How come this is even possible?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   September 05, 2009, 06:40 AM

Thanks for keeping an eye on this.
You're seeing the Not Found message because we've actually removed the user account already; now we've also blocked the spamming IP address and removed the outstanding comments.

another spammer, please block this user.


Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   September 05, 2009, 12:58 PM

Well this is certainly going great. We've re-activated some captcha during signup and elsewhere to combat the problem -- hopefully that will help a bit.

Bruno Miguel   September 05, 2009, 10:32 PM
