    Our drug dealing problem

    guys seriously what is with all these accounts that have no posts but are always active in private messaging?!?

    should we ban them or should we find out which one of them has the best stuff first, then ban them?

    or should we just let them keep doing their little child porn/drugs thing?

    users I have seen as "active" with no posts and particularly only active on "private messaging":

    there's even some with a few posts but they're also basically only active on private messaging:

    View Profile: Michaelpdelaney - Nintendo Today Forums

    seriously wtf is going on?! and these are just the ones that are active while I make this post

    I have no idea what this is but if your suspicions are correct this needs to be stopped straightaway.

    Nothing is more ore disgusting than a child molester/enabler, if that turns out to indeed be the case.

    I dunno, it's weird. Some could be lurkers but surely not all..
    Mods could probably look into it, see what's up

    I'm assuming these guys are the people who make up the 80 people in the lounge area when 15 of us post anything...

    Also if mods are able to look at PM's I have no idea how to do it lol.
    My reaction when I log on to the site:

    We can only read private messages that are reported by the receiver. If you're correct, and if they're just communicating between each other, we won't be able to see it. I'll refer it up to Phases so he can take a look.

    Those are bots crawling the site I'm pretty sure

    It's just bizarre. What possible reasons would you have to make an account here, read some posts (which i doubt they have), never say or like anything, but then start private messaging other users that also have not posted or liked anything?

    to me that just means something shady is going on here

    What? People come here to read my awesome opinions and fantastic roasts!

    That’s a joke, but I felt maybe a little levity wouldn’t hurt.

    Hopefully this gets resolved soon.

    Maybe they're all in a secret gambling ring where they place bets on how people will react to certain news/topics?

    But if it is something a bit more unsavory, here's some appropriate music for the mods/Phases to listen when busting them...

    Like I said, it's terrorist cells using our forum to secretly communicate with each other.

    the bots are private messaging eachother?!

    has AI already progressed to the point where they are now plotting against us?!

    you realize bots are for crawling public content right?! that they don't make accounts?

    For real though, that’s super bizarre and definitely shady.

    This is a bit suspicious. We should assume they met here, otherwise there are phones for texting. Of course, using a Nintendo forum for drugs isn't the strangest thing. But maybe we shouldn't have made this thread if we were suspicious. We just alerted them.

    I'm gonna go play botw whilst you guys worry about the underground drug ring. Although if I were to be serious for one second I don't like the look of this at all.

    They're lurkers and they're talking shit about all of us through private messaging. This site is like a zoo and they're the observers.

    Serious question though, can those 'members' read this thread? If so, perhaps this is best discussed behind a semi-locked forum where those of us who wish to discuss (plus all Mods/Admins) can join in?

    Is that sort of thing even possible to set up on here? Figured it's worth asking.

    Yeah I mean I've made my point. Obviously since I'm not a mod I can't look at IPs, activity history, etc. So if a mod could move this thread to private chat with staff or something else behind a "wall", that'd be great

    makes me wonder if something in vbulletin is just broken here or what

    But someone must make the accounts. Why would some random people that don't take part in the discussion, private message other random people that never take part in discussion?

    People make bots that create accounts all the time. They're either for spam advertising or malicious purposes. That's why we have CAPTCHA and stuff like that. We had to deal with Kippy making account creating bots a few times, and it sucked. But I don't see how or why they would be PMing each other, though. If these accounts are really PMing each other, then they're probably real people.

    Nothing is going to happen to us. The forum, itself, isn't doing anything illegal. But at the worst, people are using our forums for shady things, and at the best, it's just weird.

    Haha I know what bots can do as I have written many myself, but people don't make bots that just private message other bots is what I am trying to say here. If they're bots, first they beat captcha, and then they don't even crawl pages/data?! No bots do that because bots generally have a point to their existence.

    In any case after some more investigation, I do think there could be a bug with tapatalk going on

    What makes you think it's Tapatalk? I've noticed the same stuff from a browser.

    Just that they are all tapatalk users from what I can tell, and most of them "follow" the forum.

    As for why they're always active private messaging, no idea. It just makes me wonder if tapatalk has some issue where if the user is browsing or posting on another forum, they show up as "active in private messaging" on the other forums they follow?

    this is a testable theory I suppose
