Possible Spam Uploads


(Pamela Rosensteel) #1

Yesterday I came across two designs that were uploaded within a very short time of each other. The designs were basically the same with the exception of a spattering of leaves over it in different colors. I approved the first one then rejected the second one because, as I said they were the same with the exception of the leaves. Now normally I would have approved them, as they were technically different, but they were uploaded by two different user accounts. I explained in my rejection that they should keep their designs to one account.

This is the one that I approved:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/banhcanhmytho/

This is the one that I rejected, but I see they uploaded it again and it was subsequently approved by someone else:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/hutieumytho2/

Now there is this account that uploaded another similar designs, using the same base image:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/shadowfienddark/
I have marked the design the above account uploaded as Flagged.

Now what I want to point out specifically as possible spam, is the web address on each account. So I’m thinking that this is probably one person uploading slightly different designs to multiple accounts.

I’m curious now as to what to do if more of these accounts and designs show up?

Thanks, @VanillaOrchids! Yeah, these are spam. If you see any more uploaded themes that use these base images and you see worthreview listed as the account owner’s website, please go ahead and reject the submission. I’ll send this out to the theme-review list.

Will do. Thanks!

New spam accounts. This time the websites are apparently for locksmiths. I noticed these because two of the three accounts uploaded the same design (shown below) which was of poor quality and misaligned.

The above accounts uploaded this image:

Both have web addresses for garage door repairs.

Then there was this account that uploaded an image that spammers have used before.

This is the image:

Also, I’ve gone through the reviews for the designs rejected by candelora and found additional spam accounts and listed them below. If you would prefer I not list spam accounts, instead just reject them, please let me know.
