This is the first time I’ve had one of these following me. :unamused: Delete it.

And can’t you add some sort of thing to stop these bots, as they are getting irritating.

just clicked on a few of these links and they are still active - great job there memrise - the public are even giving you the accounts to shutdown and your ignoring them!


((ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧) #48

I know! It’s getting ridiculous. Please terminate these accounts or put in a system to stop them being created Memrise! As it seems we will NEVER get rid of them…


(Memrise Matty) #49

It looks like the active links mentioned by yourself were all reported 1 day ago. Sometimes it can take a short period of time for us to review and remove links reported. These have now been deleted.

We have put in place a system to prevent spammy Mems. Most of these active Mems were generated before we released these prevention measures. Please see my post here on Oct 30th:

There should not be any new Mems created with spammy content. If you do see any recent ones (i.e. “Spam mem created 15 days ago”) please let me know.

We can confirm we have bulk removed other Mems which slipped through the net (prior to new tools being released).

Great to hear you added it @MemriseMatty!


(Memrise Matty) #52

Thanks for reporting this new case. I’m going to leave some of these open for a short while so we can check and see why our system is not picking these up. We will remove the posted links when the investigation has been completed.

Hi @MemriseMatty,

One more for review please. It says “created 2 days ago”:

https://www.memrise.com/user/13thomasj/

I think it’s one that was previously removed and was showing ‘no mems created’ when I looked on 5 December.

Hello @MemriseMatty :slight_smile:

When I looked 5 days ago, I noticed that MEM was removed from pandrut6 and the others I reported in a previous post. Thank you :slight_smile:

But pandrut6 added a new MEM 3 days ago:
