❗️ Spam! And how you can help us fight it


(Bart) #1

Since this weekend we've seen a huge amount of spam getting posted both here on the forum and on the main site. We're busy tracking and cleaning it and figuring out the best way to prevent this from happening.

In the mean time, here's how you can help us fight it:

On the forum

If you see a spam message, just 'flag' it:

On the screen that pops up, select 'spam':

On the main site

If you see someone leaving spam comments, post spammy models (crappy 3D models with spam links in their description), or set up a spam account (again, spam links in their account description), please contact me on bart@sketchfab.com and I'll handle it.

In the case where it is not simply spam but a link to another site to a copyrighted video (like a tv series episode) is it not more appropriate to pick "it s inappropriate" as it directly violates the "post only your stuff" rule and does not respect copyrights?

Those terms and conditions you refer to apply to 3D model uploads. The messages on the forum here are clearly spam, and by flagging them as such you'll help improve our spam filter.
