You all may have seen that someone has been going around posting unsavory content (to say the least) to various apps and challenge entries.
With the help of @TheDrone7, we've been able to locate the abuser and ban them from the site for life. We also have all his information and IP address and if the person in question were to return we'll be escalating to the authorities.
I wanted to share this publicly so that:
1- you know that we don't tolerate behavior like this
2- you secure your apps and websites preferably with Repl.it auth (which allowed us to catch the attacker)
Read more about Auth here: https://repl.it/talk/learn/Authenticating-users-with-Replit-Auth/23460
@LittleNomster i have some experience getting away with social media in extremely locked down environments, that id rather not elaborate on here.
by the way, there are web interfaces to at least some areas of discord made by repl.it users, some of which should be barebones enough to not look like discord and which should bypass the firewall.
edit: the most well-known one is discross (https://discross.digital/) but it requires that you have a discord account
however, if all you need is a non-suspicious chat that relays to discord servers i have admin in, im more than willing to set up a bot for it
@LittleNomster discross doesnt want your discord username and password, they want the name and password you get from linking your actual discord account by sending the bot a message with your actual account
i actually just switched tabs from programming a system that once complete will allow users to talk in specific discord channels without a discord account at all
