Opinion: The Major Steps Read.Cash Admin needs to take to end Spamming

Okay, so everyone's now complaining about spamming.

Great!

All thought processes, useful articles - all of the good stuff are now almost extinct because a specific group of people, apparently from the same country (obviously) have now come here to turn a perfectly sane platform where we all shared useful information to a zoo without a keeper.

Great!

Every day this keeps getting worse and worse, and I really doubt the admins are actually looking into any of this. Because if they were, a lot of these spammers wouldn't have any of these accounts in use any longer.

I mean, who the hell thought it was a good idea to tell their friends you could earn 5 bucks a day typing trash on this site? Because that's exactly what caused this - overhyped promises as a result of the affiliate program. Even if you banned all the accounts, there are a lot of free VPNs out there, so they can just hop back in.

@Read.Cash needs to get back and take control of what's going on here, and there are a few ways these can be curbed

  1. There should be a restriction on who can comment on an article. Read.Cash needs to restrict who can comment on an article to members of that community. If you haven't joined the community, you won't be able to comment.

  2. There should be an approval mechanism before one can join a community. Prospective members should send in requests from which admins and moderators will review their accounts and previous articles before joining. That way, admins will know who can join and who can't.

  3. There should be a threshold or minimum amount of words before a post can be submitted as an article. You really can't put 70 words, attach a few emojis, and call it an article, that's rubbish!

  4. A lot of the existing communities should be wiped out. Like, exterminated. Like, dissolved. A team is needed here - not the one-man squad @Read.Cash was running - to review the contents of a community and decide if it's just another haven where spammers gather. Read.Cash said he was eliminating upvote circles, and even I got penalized (what a lovely situation that was), but now, where's all that? That's why the Featured Communities system was a bit better than the current system.

  5. New users should upload their first three or four posts without submitting to a community so that when they do submit, admins and moderators will have something to look at.

  6. Admins and Moderators should be able to see the members of their community. I really can't understand why this was not originally in place - I can't even see my subscribers, who I'm subscribed to, or who are in my community. This system will work hand-in-hand with suggestions 1, 2, and 5 to make sure things are smooth.

In the end, I'm not in any place to decide what goes on here, and many people might say that my suggestions are too totalitarian. But I feel some serious restrictive measures are what we need here.

You can share your thoughts as well.

Edit: I just checked out a few annoying stats.

Enjoyed this article?  Earn Bitcoin Cash by sharing it! Explain

Comments

The moderators in every community shouldn't give auto approval to writers (there should be more than one moderator in each community), he/she thoroughly check the article first approving it. 3 successive violation to the community rules should be equivalent to being muted of that user in that community. If all moderators are like that, then there will be no rubbish articles here. And still the same action for spam comments, move all to spam then RC will take charge to ban or mute the user.

I think it's the best solution we can have for now, coz obviously they won't put staffs here to do those tasks you've mentioned above

Yes, we're thinking alike. Only a strict approach will solve the problem.

True, another one, communities such as post all you can and others in relation should be removed, because users can obviously post anything they wanted to, even plagiarized articles can be posted there. And about the short posts, (though I'm posting mine in some communities) I'm thinking maybe it shouldn't be posted on any communities. Anyway, the readers can still read short posts even if it's not posted on any community

During the days of featured communities, those that have "Post Anything" as topic didn't get featured, and such they didn't give points to any article within it. Sad to say that people didn't like the featured communities. Would be nice to see a similar thing now.

I doubt this is the solution.

Read. Cash wouldn't be a one-man platform if we all realize that we, together are read.cash.

I do not see the need to join a community that is not of my interest to read someone or leave a comment. I follow someone I like, not a community that accepts everything which is something most communities do. They do not care about topics.

How about we start hiding notifications? This will make read.cash look better. Notifications can be seen by followers only.

Comments reported as spam should be checked (I think they are) and removed. I would prefer to still see the name of the commenter. Too many are reported for spamming but do not spam.

It's clear the upvote circles exist. Let's simply remove the like and dislike and not make this a way to earn. It's pointless and doubtful if not a single comment is left

On Reddit read.cash seems to answer question. My e-mail are not answered. The suggestion on Reddit is to pay to be able to comment.

If it comes to bad content. A wordcounter might be helpful here. You are not able to post if you write fewer than a X amount of words.

This platform feels abandoned, the admin is gone since that meme contests and he is just watching from distance and fixing bugs. That's very appreciated of course, but won't help this drowning in spam of a platform. I don't see the future of read.cash as bright as i did when i first joined here.

Perhaps it is a good thing to watch and see how the users deal with problems themselves. Together we are read.cash shouldn't we fight this together?

You are right. But read.cash admin should stop working from the shadows and we (users) and him can handle this together. That would be way better i guess.

Yes ! No doubt spamming is the major issue in every earning platform I think read.cash admin is working on it

To me, I see this place as somewhere I can share my thoughts, pour down my mind and seek advice without getting judged. It's just my own social media.

So it's not right for some people to come and comment irrelevant things under the post, spamming comments.

That's what we're fighting against.

Weldone, we hope to see changes soon enough. Let's do it for the fun, education and entertainment of it.

Any ideas like this are welcome. I posted an article about this about the same time as you did. Thing is it need to be rather fast unless the platform might go. Read this: https://read.cash/@Yann.Poire/maybe-spammer-are-getting-the-best-of-it-now-not-so-much-for-the-rest-c008b927

Your article is on point. We really have to be ruthlessly aggressive in blocking and reporting if we're going to get rid of this

And I think the most revealing graph are the value per points and the funds. As with no funding no engagement and with no engagement there is no incentive for development.

Yes and time is ticking. I would hate to see this social platform fall apart.
