    @sahlavit @kuntzman - Are you around here? Is there anyone?

    There's tons of spam all around and almost nothing gets deleted.

    It feels like spammers seo paradise here, and it makes me want to remove any personal content.

    I've very tried to contact you via the help page, but no one replies.

    Is there anyone around?

    😦

      @spatz Hmmmmmm, jeeze I really hope they haven't abandoned ship. What do you mean by "spammers seo paradise"? I am kind of ignorant about all that. What information about us could be gleaned from our postings here? Is it something to be concerned about re: identity theft, etc?

        @beequeen SEO is search engine optimization - spammers try to get their links into any and all web pages to get more hits to show up earlier in google search (for example). Most of those spammers couldn't care less about us.
        There's the classic spammers around, too, trying to sell us anything - they mostly live in the questions, and, it seems, in the travel goal. At least that's where I see them. I don't want to get spam in my feed just because I have a travel goal.
        I'm quite sure there's nothing to be feared personally, spammers typically aren't identity thieves or such.
        They're basically annoying and make reading entries uninteresting. If you don't see anything of them, you're on the luckier side here &#xsmile;. You'll find them if you look into the new goals under explore...

        I'm not sure where @sahlavit and @kuntzman went. Kuntzman hasn't been around in three months and sahlavit hasn't replied, too. It feels a bit like a ship without a captain here...

      @spatz I reported the ones that I could see where spam and it's pretty much stopped for me.

        @diamondlightfoot I reported them, too, and while those that I reported stopped, there's new ones coming in.
        I'm not sure if they stopped because I reported them. Most of them seem to appear just once, post their spam and leave.
        And in the last two weeks, no spam has been deleted, strangely.

          @spatz Maybe they're on vacation. πŸ™‚ I report the ones I notice and that's slowed down a LOT. I had hundreds (literally) friending me and then spamming my feed for several weeks before I started reporting them. I looked in travel and reported another one with a lot of links. that were pretty much all self promotion. I don't mind one or two, but that was just carried away. I don't know what the answer is. I'll keep reporting them as I find them.

    A place where we can put goals on hold would be cool! I don't want to give up on it, I just want to put it into another list so I can go back to it for later. Kind of like saving articles and/or links you want to read later.

    my permalinks are turning out to be not so perma. I'm getting an error page for some saying the page has disappeared.

    I'm being held up at the cloudflare redirect thing a lot. Also, there are frequent 500 errors. I'm sure you're probably working on those, but yeah.

    fix the message icon thing so it stops giving false positives.

    I've had a notification for 2 messages in my empty inbox for about three months now. probably just user specific to me though.

      @aenea I have found that if I send a message to the person I was notified about their message magically appears. It seems to be doing this only if I had deleted past messages to and from that person. Try sending a message to whoever notified you that you have a pm and then I bet it will show up

    Let me change the email I use to log in with and receive notifications, if you don't already do this. I can't find it under settings.

    Institute a CAPTCHA for registration. Lol I never thought I'd say this heh but that will do away with a lot of the spammers. Of course, it needs to have an audio CAPTCHA associated with it. Recaptcha is good for these things.

    The spammers are back, it seems. New goals is a spam fest, and there's obvious spam in the popular questions. @sahlavit , could you please take a look?

    It would be cool if we could group together related goals under headings or categories.
