EOL strange nicks

Post by mena » 11 Oct 2017, 14:15

Hi mans,
It's not my problem, but maybe not good for EOL database:

I just found a lot of fake EOL users, from random countries, like:
http://elmaonline.net/players/nation/Mozambique

If you check the team, there is even more:
http://elmaonline.net/players/team/BayLagoon

There are already 600 users from Afghanistan (the default country), most of them never played:
http://elmaonline.net/players/nation/Afghanistan

What is this? Some web crawler bots filling out the forms they find on the web?

Shouldn't there be a captcha for registration?
And maybe delete the accounts that are older than 1 month and never played any battle.

Typical bot names, so most of them are bots i guess.
zwaktvglt [BayLagoon] is a funny one.
Many ppl from Afghanistan because that's the default country in the registration form :roll:
And maybe delete the accounts that are older than 1 month and never played any battle.
agree.

Yeps, there's plenty like that... I agree that accounts older than a month should be deleted, but I'd say only those that haven't actually played online, rather than no battles played - there may be some people who actually play but orka bulle.

Also, I think it'd be great to remove all the teams without any player. I mean, just go to elmaonline.net/players and expand any team letter on the right... Example:

Code: Select all

$w!$$
%3E%3Cscr
%3E%3Cscr
%3E%3Cscr
%5Bngt%5D
%5BRR%5D

Problem is it's more than 5 minutes work (but not 5 days), second problem is you can't just delete a user if it has any sort of data like a single run or something, since it's relational database, but maybe can put some hidden tag so it won't show on lists and change the nick to something so the name is available.
