[citation][nom]JacekRing[/nom]I think they need to change the forum rules on Tomsguide.My recommendations:You can only post links if the following is true:1) You are a registered member, with a verified e-mail address.2) You have been a registered member for at least 1 month.3) You have made at least 50 posts, 5 of which have received 10+ thumbs up.That should cut down the amount of spam we see on the comments sections by a whole lot.[/citation]
I don't have 50 posts and I doubt that I've had more than 3 or 4 thumbs for any of my posts (is there a way to check centrally?) but I do occasionally post a link to a tech site that expands on the article topic or in reply to someone else's comment. Your conditions would prevent me, and others like me, from adding such helpful touches.
Mind you, I could always create a dozen dummy accounts to vote myself up. :-)
[citation][nom]JacekRing[/nom]Oh and BTW, you have 127 posts....You can check by clicking on your name, it's listed on your profile.As for thumbs up, they don't say it. But they do score you, you are an Apprentice my child. I am a regular (407 posts or so).They should have a field called 'thumbage' and give how many thumbs up/down you have in total at least. That would be fun knowing.[/citation]
thumbs should only be for fun, because god knows i have at least 5 posts that got to 20 downs, not because its bad, but because i say good things about the possibilities that the wiiu could give gameing, and people who obsess over graphics hate that so much.
a thumb down doesn't mean a bad post but usually means an unpopular opinion.
^^ In the feedbacks parts of Tom's Hardware, and it goes like this: Readers helping fighting spam
New members could correctly identify 10 spam posts from the ones shown to them, with +90% accuracy, before being able to post a link. Or if their link was flagged as spam by operators. Community service type.
If spam bots actually evolve to the point of identifying spam from non-spam, horray... to a point... because what I have seen happening is bots grabbing regular useful posts from other forums in related topics, and adding their own links inside *sighs, shaking head, and becoming pessimistic about this issue*
Many companies fact copyright issues and UFC is not alone. On a daily basis, DMCA Solutions receives calls from a variety of companies who need takedown services. However, unethical companies which don't do hand verifications will embarass clients and it didn't have to happen. Copyright violation is a reality today but we at DMCA Solutions hope our competitors step up their game to avoid our segment from looking like SEO companies.
