Unfortunately, there is no way to delete likes right now. If the spamming is really bad, I'd suggest just deleting the MOC and maybe re-posting it.

a quick look at the comments seems to imply that this is being spammed onto the front page. mostly by these two

http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/91621 - I suspect this is someone's second account.
http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/89393 - possibly a new member who isn't aware he's double posting, but might be worth keeping an eye on.

if you look at "Who likes this creation" again, I think it lists who likes it, then a yellow box saying "The rest of the people are anonymous visitors who don't have MOCpages accounts". I'm guessing the other 58, yes i counted how many 'MOCpages users' like the creation(42), are those who don't have an account.

unfortunately the ones "who don't have an account" are just as likely to be the same person liking the item 40 times rather than 40 different guests. which is clearly spamming.

that would be statistically impossible, so yeah I'd say that was certainly a case for fraud. people can view without commenting or liking something (for instance if they vote under 3 or not at all) but they can't like something without viewing it first, they can't comment without viewing it, so if the likes exceeds the views then something has seriously gone wrong.

having said that, comments are not a good judge. the total number of comments includes those made by the creator and duplicate posts, so it is possible for there to be thousands of comments, but only a few views and likes.

Again that would only happen if someone was deliberately trying to get on the front page, or some glitch was generating multiple comments (and the creator wasn't deleting the duplicates).

Hi guys, I encountered a strange thing happening with my MOC today after someone has spammed it. My creation was instantly removed from the MOCpages home page and I find that strange because there are other MOCs from yesterday that are still on.

Hey Mihai,

First off, I can tell you that neither Mark nor I have the ability to remove a creation from the homepage for any reason. If there's ever a "need" for something to be removed (and not just deleted entirely) from a page then we have to go through Sean.

I can also say that both Mark and I know who you are and spammed or not, would NEVER do something like that without first coming to you and asking if you knew what was going on (you're not the type of guy that needs to "up" his own ratings ya know).

The only thing I can think of is that yesterday, there was a server issue on the pages and I know that some stuff was "reset" as a result to get it back up and running. Perhaps your moc just got pushed to one side in the shuffle? Call it a glitch that happened during the reshuffle. I'm not a computer guy so I'm not really sure on the "how" but I've seen things similar to this happen before.

One thing I can be sure of is that your moc not being on the homepage was in no way intentional from any of the staff and I'm sorry that it happened.

Ahh, I see what you mean. And honestly, that one looks like a simple over eager mistake on the kid's part. I don't think he meant to spam your moc at all, I think he was just a little impatient with the continue button (you can tell because there's only about what... 8 or 10 of em instead of the 30 or 40 or more that would happen from a spammer trying to raise ratings).

I wouldn't worry about little ones like that, just looks like an honest mistake and no issues will be taken with the kid.

Hope we cleared everything up for ya!

Spamming is a huge problem on MOCpages, and it has caused the community as well as the moderators quite a bit of grief. I believe that my latest MOC (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/335475) had it's likes removed by a moderator due to spam. I wasn't contacted by any of the MOCpages staff about it, however, so I don't know for sure. I know that there were a couple of distinguished builders who each left a repeated comment on the MOC, but since I am familiar with both builders and don't know of any spamming history on their parts, I simply deleted their duplicate comments and assumed that MOCpages was just lagging at the time, and they hit the "continue" button a few times more than was necessary.

In addition to that, however, I noticed that a couple other people left comments about spam on the MOC, one of which indicated another culprit. I did not see the actual spamming comments (a mod probably deleted them and then disabled the likes on the MOC before I had a chance to see the problem), but if the likes were disabled, I am guessing it was bad.


Anyway, I was just wondering if it would be an efficient use of time and resources to re-program the rating system so that when a comment is deleted (accidental duplicates and spam alike) by the user, the rating is deleted along with it. This would allow users to manage spamming on their own, without losing the ratings that were actually earned, and without causing grief for the moderators.





Whoever disabled the ratings on my creation, I completely understand why it was done and why it was necessary. When convenient, however, please drop me an email or a comment explaining the situation (seeing as I missed it), and perhaps we could discuss the merit and feasibility of my system modification idea. Spamming is one of the largest problems to builders and mods alike, and if there's anything that the users of MOCpages can do to help eliminate it, please let us know.


+edit+

My likes have returned, although it looks like there are 48, but when I click "see who", it shows 36 names. Not a huge problem, but it's still significantly more inaccurate than the typical error of 1 or 2 likes. I'm kind of confused as to the sudden disappearance and reappearance of likes, though, so if a mod could explain this, I'd be very grateful.

And another thing, I have sort of realized a pattern in the spams, especially with this moc.

The member of MP that apparently is behind all of the spamming posted a thing on DeviatArt saying he wanted that moc to become the most popular moc on MP as revenge. So in other words, various members from DeviantArt are creating MP accounts and spamming the living cr@p out of Bionicle builds!

Again this spamming problem shows up. This makes me wonder: isn't there a way to... you know, prevent it? Because most of the cases are based on someone making several repeated comments with the same account(or even different accounts by the same person), and all the 'likes' get counted. I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure there must be a way to prevent the same IP or account of rating the same MOC more than once(like in Youtube, where you can't fav a video twice). Because it happens, even by accident. For example, when you make a double comment, it counts as two 'likes'; or even when you make a second comment on the same MOC, you're given the option to rate again, and this second 'like' also counts.

Well I have been noticing, and once I accidentally posted a comment twice because I pressed the preview your comment button twice. Maybe if there was no way to do that it means the spammers would take longer to spam. We could also make it you can only like a creation once, and other times you comment on the MOC it stays at "I'll rate it later". How about that?

I'm either stating the obvious or got this compleately wrong, but I think the mocs that got spammed were Bionicle mocs, so it seems that the person doing this has a grudge against Bionicles. Also, I got spammed on one of my Mocs like 496 times. I reposted the moc, so its fine. The guy who spammed me was called "jamie holms" i think. Sorry that i don't have anything special, just trying 2 contribute

jamie holms? That's a bit similar too Chronos Omega's spammer James Holmes. Makes me wonder if all the spammers are the same people, and they keep making accounts from their previous blocked ones. I have to admit I accidentally spammed once, but I did not know it was bad until I was told. The comments are deleted and I will not reveal which creation it was.

Hardly, spawnderp is clearly a troll.

This is so frustrating, that person has clearly set up a new account JUST to troll this group. Sean, Chris, Mark - I don't have the authority to ban him or lock this thread, but clearly both have become necessary.

If it is possible to find out if he is connected to one of the other bionicle drama group that have been mentioned in this thread (and he must be otherwise why would he go out of his way to be a nuisance like this) can we permanently ban them too.

I think this demonstrates very clearly that we need to not only make it so new members have their first couple of MOC's pre-moderated, but that new members should have all their comments pre-moderated until we can be certain they aren't trolls.

Look, I was attempting to be diplomatic. There is just as much chance one of Derp's 31 watchers made that account as it is his.

In either case, this situation will not be "over" till people just calm down and stop trying to "pick fights".

Trolls crave attention, and all I've seen in this group for the last two days, is lots of people giving them that attention.

The matter was reported, the evidence given, there was no need for further discussion or debate.

I'm not going to start pointing fingers without proof. However, that was my conclusion too.

My advice from the beginning has been to "back off", trolls crave attention, if you don't give them any they get bored and move on.

Well, it looks like he's here to stay in te group to see the reactions. His name is still on the group's homepage. It's just so ridiculous to me to do nothing, but also I understand.

On my YouTube videos, I add MCLB at the beginning of all the titles so they are known more clearly as mine. This kid who was only kidding said, "MCLB= My Carpy Lego Bloks :D" and I just told him, "Not phased. You're going to have to try harder." He then confessed he was only kidding. I'd heard it before anyway. But he could have easily just been a troll and eventually he would get tired of me say, "Try harder." So giving attention like that just trolls the trolls. My thinking is that not all attention is always feeding them.

He also has a private group (presumably filled with his cronies?) here:

It might be a decoy though considering they have other ways of communicating. Via facebook, etc.

Or only one like per person.

Cold Paste has spammed several creations without liking them. This puts them on the Most Discussed page but would easily dodge a one like limit.
But I agree, Sean should limit it to 1 like per person.

The amount of spamming on the pages recently is deplorable! It's almost as though, large amounts of people are collaborating, in a group of some sort, a mass spamming attack. My hypothesis, is that there is in fact, a group plotting something against the Bionicle section of MP. It's just a guess, and I have no proof of said group, but it seems highly likely.
Congratulations, you've made it known your are a troll. Honestly, I didn't care that you didn't like MOCpages, it's how I meet you, but really? You're such a kid. Acting like a fool will only result in your folly making your life bad. Later down the road when this website is still functioning, you're going to find no satisfaction what it is you tried to do. So go ahead, spam, there's hundreds of us out here that you still won't force to be all whiny and leave.

Congratulations, you've made it known that you are a troll. There are thousands of us here on MOCpages that don't care and will stay. There is no way you can force us to be all whiny and leave. Years later you will find no satisfaction in your actions becasue the website will still be running. So go ahead and spam, you can't break us.

That means don't get all whiny or completely troll them back. If you respond in a way that is different, it could cause a different outlook. Besides, trolls are rather interesting folk. What makes them do what they do? We know why. What keeps them going after deletion after deletion? Different question.

Whats being an atheist got to do with swastikas,
being an atheist does not make you bad, and certainly does not make you a nazi, infact Hitler at times promoted a form of Christianity, and was a believer. i find your attitude hugely offensive, and would like the mods to take notice that i'm fed up to the teeth with being god bashed on this site.

You misinterpretted me, I suppose. I meant that he does not care who he offends. He finds it funny to have swastikas in his name. There are pleanty of Athiests that are nice genuine people, but they refuse to believe in any devine power, but knowing his actions and behaviors, you can tell that about him, but I never said it made him a Nazi. God is promoted on the website by the Christian members, not by Sean. Hey, I don't like it when I see people saying they are proud to be a Christian. Being proud to be a Christian? That's just rude! I'd rather not be ashamed than proud. Proud suggests that they are better than those not. Even the Christians are not better than anyone else, it is just that people of the past have deemed it so which is incorrect. Besides most people here are kids and have not yet figured out some of these things. Sorry that you found what I said offensive.

even when you are saying sorry you are bashing me with your beliefs, me not believing in god does not make me a bad person, and I refuse to allow you to imply that it in anyway affects my morality, my honesty, or my "niceness"
doesn't Christan teaching say something along the lines of "treat others as you would like to be treated" would you like to be constantly told you where blind and stupid? or implied that you where. no, nobody does.

You're most likely hitting the continue button twice. I know that sometimes it looks like your comment isn't going through when you hit the button and you'll click it again (because you're not sure if you hit it the first time). Just get in the habbit of waiting a minute to let the page reset itself and this won't happen anymore.
