If you’ve noticed more spam on Tip’d in the past week when you’ve checked our upcoming stories, you’re not alone. We’ve noticed the ugly spaminess here at Tip’d headquarters, too!
And we’re not, of course, about to let the spammers overrun the Tip’d community. We’re taking the follow action to make sure our upcoming section is (mostly) free of off-topic crapola:
- Beefing up our moderator staff: The volume of spam is simply too much for one moderator to deal with, so we’re now taking applications for volunteer moderators! (Contact us if you’re interested.)
- Making several algorithmic tweaks: Sorry, I can’t reveal them here, but rest assured if you’re using Tip’d as a legit user, they shouldn’t affect you 99.999% of the time.
- Asking users to use the Topple button: Obviously the more the community gets involved, the better. If you see something that’s blatant spam, please Topple!
So hopefully in 4 days’ time, I’ll be writing the follow-up blog post: “How I Beat the Spammers Off with a Stick”. Stay tuned!
