One on my story and two from others
it’s a triple whammy. Sorry I can’t link to the profiles, the comments disappear from my notifications after a while
I’d recievied some of this spam comments but they seems to be for other ussers? IDRK, here are the names
I’ve been getting it on my books, but when I go to delete and block the profile it been deleted. Its really starting to bug me. Here’s the list of spammers that are posting on my stories. This is all from today.
Wow, that many in just one day? I feel bad for you (and no, I’m not being sarcastic). Wattpad really needs to put a stop to this. Our reports/tickets can only do so much.
i went searching for the first account on that list and couldn’t find it anywhere. I might have to op out of Wattpad alerting me to new comments on my story if it keeps going, but I like reading what people have to say when I’m not on here.
Yeah, those accounts tend to be deleted on their own whenever someone sniffs them out. It’s quite pathetic, really.
Here’s some more that I received.
Posting on my story and replying to comments:
They are commenting on one of my stories… it’s not published…it’s a draft… and on every single chapter (so it seems, right now)
Wasn’t able to get the URLs, but I have the the usernames. Smite them, oh Wattpad!
I know it’s frustrating all, I had 10 of them in the same book yesterday myself. Just keep passing them along, we’re getting them killed as fast as possible.
It’s a shame there’s no way for the spam to be stopped/blocked before it’s posted to the stories and how easily it’s deleted right after it’s been posted. So, we can’t block them from commenting.
I’ve gotten three in the last two days. They tag a random commenter in one of my stories and tell them that they’ve won Premium. It would be different if they were sending PM’s to harass just me but they’re harassing my readers and that’s what really gets me.
I wish there was a way to fix this. I keep reporting the accounts but more show up every day.
@Dredge116 @LittleMinx94 I know, it’s super frustrating, it’s something HQ is working on to mass remove, which is slowly fastly (if that makes sense xD) working. Your reports and posting here helps 100%!
Thank you for keeping us updated! I know it’s got to be a difficult thing to stop from happening
The strange thing for me is, every time I click on the comment they’ve replied to my reader with, the comment is deleted. The account is still accessible as is their activity history but the comment itself is gone nearly immediately after I get the notification. Very strange.
It is indeed! All my years here, it is one of the strangest bout of spambots I’ve seen.
