Hello, Heroes team
You may know (or not), that opensuse-project mailing list is heavily
discussing the shutdown of connect and the replacement by something else.
As temporary measure, some of us want to try remove the spam on the
<https://connect.opensuse.org/>, while others discuss and try a
replacement. We would need some kind of access to the platform.
any hint appreciated
Well, I don't see spam now. I have banned some users, deleted some
obvious spam users, deleted some polls and some groups. Stefan Seyfried
has been busy before I started.
If there are more, please point me to them ;-)
There are, of course, a plethora of useless groups and polls (with no
content, one vote, or one member), but as long as they are not spam I
don't see the point. I did delete one or two of this while I was looking
around till I found the bigger prey. Made one or two comments (for
checking if I would get an email, but no).
Many of those groups seems attempt by people for finding openSUSE users
on this country or other. There seems to be interest in that, but most
groups are empty or almost so - or it is just that the Connect platform
didn't became popular.
Someone commented of spam in calendars, but I found no calendars at all.
Unless Stefan cleared them before I looked. :-?
I don't know if we can/should generally ban polls on that platform - if
it is being removed, I see no point in having them.
