Default [Guide] Troller Attacks: What to do & How to handle them.

[Guide] Troller Attacks: What to do & How to handle them.

Trollers. They attack the forums with spam, bad words and other unmentionable things.
All at riduculous paces.

They're uncomfortable, rude and ruin a lot of the fun.
But let's think of it this way- when a troller hits, it's like your school is having a lock-down. There's a certain protocol that should be followed, to be safe and to be fast.

Here's your guide to dealing with trollers

Trollers ONLY come when they see there's no mod or admin on.
This makes them dangerous, and they'll know that there's some time for their attack before they get banned right away. While there are some mods that are invisible that will take care of them ASAP, sometimes there's no one. So, you'll be dealing it on your own.

What can they do?
In the past, trollers have:
- Spammed the forums with posts with repeated words.
- Sworn and posted various curse words/unmentionable words
- Attacked certain members with rude words/spam in particular
- Posted unmentionable pictures/GIFS

So, they're here. What can I do to protect myself?
• If you're younger and haven't been exposed to unmentionable material, get off the forum IMMEDIATELY if you see there are trollers. Parents should supervise young children on this forum at all times, especially if they notice there's no mod or admin on.
• If you're not too uncomfortable, you can stay to report. It's a good idea to report any posts the troller has made, so that when the mods get on them can find and delete them faster rather than locating all of them themselves.
• Never, EVER reply or quote the spammer. Not only does this create more work for the mods to clean up, you risk the chance of the troller singling you out and attacking you personally. It's also incentive for them to continue if you reply. Just ignore and report.
• If you notice someone replying, VM them and tell them to stop, for the reason above. The less incentive, the better. If the troller realizes no one cares, they're more likely to stop.
• Do not VM the troller to stop. It's pretty obvious they won't do it.
• VM a mod or an admin. Let them know what's happened, so the second they log in they'll know what's up.

Remember the protocol.
Ignore, Report and Move on.

Don't let the trollers win. Be safe and smart until they're gone

This is a great thread, with great info. The main thing is people quoting the troller, and I'm glad you stressed on that. Thanks for helping to keep WI safe. :3
