Is it just me, or is

The Share Part of Repl Talk full of spam posts

I can’t be the only one that sees the Share part of Repl talk full of little kid spam posts and Spanish posts that are useless, right??

I theorize that a lot of the posts on there are submissions for assignments that were done incorrectly, like as if the teacher asked them for a link, so they created a Share post for it.

yes there are many spam posts, and we all know about it lol, only solution is just to report it. thats all lol

i Wonder if someone could just make a script to hide them... that would be cool

@Highwayman yeah probably but it’s seriously super annoying. You can’t enjoy looking and observing someone’s project they worked hard on because all of the useless posts

And making a script to hide them would be a discussion between the Repl crew

There is a certain Repl crew that removes spam posts but it seems as if they aren’t paying attention to the share side of Repl talk..

Well if you think it’s an ad, repor it. If you think it’s low effort, report it. And finally, if you think it’s spanish, translate it, and then reassess the situation on potential reporting.

Oh, and probably the best thing for those of us who don’t actually know where to post, just comment! Or get a mod.

@Highwayman I have reported so many but man that’s a full time job :/

Hm we just need more ppl to do it. Personally I find it kind of fun to report ads, it feels like I finally get to get back at all the a******* who are randomly posting ads on such a wonderful site 😌

@Highwayman lol I as well get a pleasure out of reporting useless sh** posted by little kids but it gets overwhelming because you then find yourself doing absolutely nothing but reporting every post you see

@CodeLongAndPros yeah everytime I go to share all I see is Spanish posts and spam posts. It’s really annoying because as soon as someone posts something they want people to see people are just too fed up about all the spamming and will never see.
