AutoModerator is effective at accomplishing this, but it won't prevent players unless this subreddit were to become content that is exclusive to RS3 only from posting questions or OSRS content. It seems that many articles fitting this criteria are one-off posts from users who will gravitate towards 2007 Runescape after being redirected there, which typically happens in the remarks currently. If we were to try this with AutoModerator, posts would probably get removed or filtered that are on issue. If a post is needlessly filtered, removed this could create some frustration, or receives an automated reply that's irrelevant to the article subject.
For a while, we used to have so that it was immediately removed, but there were far too many false positives together with posts that weren't filtered. Our reasons for wanting to filter these posts were to remove posts which have an abysmal phishing url (possibly putting other users at risk) and removing posts which attempted to ask Jagex for account help related to a hijacking after getting one of these emails (Rule 7).
We may be able to improve our Account Help Wiki webpages by adding more information while flagging these articles may not be sensible. The RuneScape Wiki has some fantastic information in regard to these scams as well as many others that are found outside and inside of Runescape.
Yes, they have connected to the other sub by people who remark, but in some cases they tend to delete the post here and just keep it on the opposite. If a reply doesn't work, perhaps a warning which appears before posting? We all know of the bottom to the OSRS sub in the Partner Subreddits section, but most people who post OSRS only themed content, don't even look there, since they did not knew the presence of this 2007 Runescape subreddit and are grateful when the people who remark mention it, its getting clear that the bottom resulting in the sub par on the side bar isn't enough. I'd believed the phishing one would be tough to implement, props. On using many men and women click on things, phishing urls before thinking 16, I agree.
But yea in regards to phishing some more actions may have to be accepted, these malicious classes are advancing their ways to catch unsuspecting victims increasingly these days. We've spilled streams on advertisements, phishing ads to RuneScape and OSRS in all social media platforms (I would not be surprised if these malicious advertisements eventually make its way to this sub ad locations) and the classic phishing emails and fake web**** I have even seen some poor attempts to phishing being submitted on this sub that result in fake forums and I am glad they have been removed before anybody fell victim.
The real problem with phishing posts may also be the spam that the sub will eventually receive, phishing emails have been sent in a wave to various mails of potential players, let us say like 10% of these have a reddit accounts, they will want to warn everyone else of their attempt and so there'll be many articles looking the same, all of which may be oblivious it has been posted before. It can eventually find dull. Which in turn can lead other people to ignore a fictitious clueless player who's asking whether it is true or not, that's why I suggested an automatic response of some type, at least a little warning to take caution or something like that. Additionally thanks for clarifying the email to forward phishing mails is now over, I understood of the forum thread, but not the fact that they discontinued the email.
