I would just like to say, this is [edited]:

 

Edited

 

Spam is getting seriously out of control. Adding to blacklist is a hassle because it has been full for ages now. Most obvious fix is to allow reporting for spam right from the garage (and do something with those reports). Can't seem to do that now.

 

It is starting to really piss me off, I suggest to find a solution for this sooner rather then later.

I'll start referring them to you haha.

 

I get them once in a while but today after logging in after a few days I got 4 waiting. Just unlucky I guess.

So this apparently is a recurring problem and Wargaming still hasn't done anything about it?

 

 

 

 

Quick, everybody act surprised...

What do you think they can do?  Interested to see if your thoughts match mine.

Yeah there's one for me every day. And there's no need to blacklist, because they only send the message once. Would be nice if WG would just shut that place down.

I have chat disabled with anyone outside my friends list, so I don't get them in garage - but there was one spamming General Chat yesterday, screenshotted and reported.

 

One solution would be to disable General Chat to anyone with fewer than maybe 50 battles? This guy was a zero battle count player, presumably created just for spamming this dodgy website!

Block every message containing that website. I don't know if they have a messaging filter, but if they do it should be easy.

Send a ticket to support, provide screenshot. That's all you got to do. 

 

Also, blur out the website address / remove image from your post, because else you actually validate the spammers, because they spam you (and others) to create more visibility & you are giving them that, because they cannot post their website address on the forums, & thereby rely on you to do it.

Congratulations, you just made sure that them spamming you is worth it!

 

Also, yes it's a scam; they rely on low effort high volume to attract the gullible. So make account, spam whoever you can get, hope they fall for it. Bonus, someone complains on the forum about it & even posts the web address for everyone to see, attracting even more people. 

So they'll keep the spam it because it is working.
