AutoModerator is effective at OSRS Gold accomplishing this, but it won't prevent players from submitting OSRS content or queries unless this subreddit were to become content only. It seems that lots of posts fitting this criteria are one-off articles from users that will gravitate towards 2007 Runescape after being redirected, which typically happens in the comments currently. Posts removed or would get filtered that are on issue with RS3 which mention OSRS if we were to attempt this with AutoModerator. If a post is needlessly filtered, eliminated this could create some frustration because of our users, and/or receives an automatic response that is irrelevant to the post subject.
For a while, we used to get an AutoModerator configuration which tried to filter these articles, but there were far too many false positives along with articles which were not filtered, so that it had been immediately removed. Our reasons for wanting to filter these articles were to remove posts that have an uncensored phishing url (potentially putting other users in danger ) and removing articles which tried to ask Jagex because of help associated with a hijacking after receiving one of these emails (Rule 7).
We might be able by incorporating advice to improve our Account Help Wiki webpages while flagging these posts may not be sensible. The RuneScape Wiki has some information in respect to these scams in addition to many others which are located outside and inside of Runescape. I see, I only find it quite sad to see some content developers post their OSRS themed content or questions on here and get essentially rejected by the sub (who are often clueless about another OSRS themed subs), though this sub is for both match titles as you stated.
Yes, people who comment connected to the sub them, but in some cases just and they have a tendency to delete the post on here keep it. If a response doesn't work a warning which appears before posting? We know of the bottom into the OSRS sub in the Partner Subreddits segment, but most people who post OSRS just themed articles, do not even appear there, as they did not knew the presence of the 2007 Runescape subreddit and are grateful whenever the people who comment mention it, its becoming clear that the bottom leading to the sub par on the side bar is not enough. I had believed the phishing one could be hard to implement, props for trying. I concur on using many people click on matters, phishing urls before thinking.
But yea about phishing some more actions may need to be taken, these malicious classes are improving their ways to capture unsuspecting victims more and more nowadays. I've even seen some poor attempts to phishing being posted on this sub that result in fake forums and I am happy they have been removed before anyone fell victim.
The real problem with phishing posts may also be the spam which the sub will eventually receive, phishing emails are delivered in a wave to different mails of possible players, let us say like 10% of them have a reddit accounts, they will want to warn everyone else of the attempt and so there will be several posts looking the same, all of which may be unaware it has been posted earlier. It may eventually find dull. Which in turn can lead others to ignore a legit clueless player who is asking if it's real or not, that's why I suggested an automated response of some type, at least a little warning to Buy Old School RS Gold take caution or something like that. Additionally thanks for clarifying that the email to forward phishing mails is now over, I understood of the forum thread, although not that they stopped the email.
