BTF – Spam and Pre-selections Update
Posted by cotojo on August 13, 2007
Firstly, I would like to applaud Divya, Saurabh and the rest of the Blogging To Fame team for working so hard and listening to our concerns and observations. It is by no means an easy task.
As many of you are aware, blog spamming has been commonplace on BTF.
The BTF team now acknowledge how distasteful and annoying this practice is.
There is now a link on each message that is posted that you can use to report spam.
BTF also state that they will take action against spammers which could include the blocking or deletion of their profiles.
Subsequently this would also remove Fames posted to individuals/blogs by spammers that are deleted and you may see a slight reduction in the amount of Fame you have collected.
It is up to US, as individuals, to use the Report Spam with due diligence and fairness and collectively, we can keep BTF a clean, spam free platform from which we can all benefit.
The next round of Pre-Selections are due to be announced on 18th August, where blogs will be selected after stricter control and quality testing.
Subsequent pre-selections will be at 2 week intervals, giving new bloggers the opportunity to gain more exposure to their blogs.
I believe that the new system will be much fairer and of greater benefit to all bloggers.
