spam - Hanna Appelgren
Posted 4 years ago
Hi,

I received this by OEmail:

"You are inspiring me! Im letting you know also that it is last chance to upload your photos to YouPic Photo Awards 2013. 1000 USD cash price for best photo. Unlimited uploads. Just sign up, upload your photos, and tag them with #ypa2013. Done! www youpic com"

from Hanna Appelgren.

As this user doesn't seem to use her account other than for sending this kind of message, I consider it spam...

I got the same message from the same individual. There does not appear to be a way to report spam other than in this forum. As more people sign up and use 1x, I suspect this will become more of a problem.

Same here, only the user is Mani Danossi (http://1x.com/member/manora).

There really should be a way to flag messages as spam, and also a way to report a user.

I saw other people complaining about this in the forums.
I should have titled this thread "YouPic spam", instead of Hanna Appelgrem, as different fake users seem to send the same spam. So if the title was "YouPic spam" it would be clearer, maybe. Can we change the title?

In the meantime, I'll tell Thomas Herren and Remo Rufer to report here...

Cheers,
paco.

I got the message from Hanna Uber. I was not aware of Paco's first post on this.

But, if there are only a few of 1x members to receive such messages, we are probably a privileged circle, and all non-recipients of such messages are not inspiring Hanna or whoever he or she is ☻

New spamers at least upload an avatar and even a picture (ad) to their gallery!

This morning I received a private message from a 1x member asking me to vote for their picture in the weekly theme. While this person does seem to be a legitimate member of 1x, I still consider a private message asking for a vote as spam. Here is the message:
