Please Turn Off Commenting Here

Community | Jan. 14, 2019

ManageWP.org staff, please turn off commenting on this site. It's just a giant spam-fest, and it's been that way for far too long. It's obviously never going to be moderated properly, so please just turn it off.

+1!

via JS Morisset

And while we're fixing things, FB login has been broken for awhile now.

via Rod Austin

I am an Admin here, but there is no way to turn off commenting sitewide, when I see a flag, I could delete. And I don't see any development support, so anything related to the development probably won't happen soon.

via M Asif Rahman Ⓦ

Ok, it's really not that hard. I mean, you can at least hide it via css. #comment-form-id { display: none; } Could probably still get some via scripts but it would probably cut down on a lot. And flags....we've flagged and flagged in the past, with nothing done. To paraphrase someone I despise..."sad".

via Donna Cavalier

I do not have server level access, I already informed Vladimir and others personally.

And if you flag I am personally moderating, I will try my level best to take action in time.

And...my point exactly.

ManageWP.org improvements, new algorithm & more!

Community | Aug. 27, 2018

Hey gang,

I am happy to announce that in the past couple of weeks we've been busy fixing up ManageWP.org in order to improve the quality of articles served on the Popular page, and the overall page speed. Here's a short recap of work done.

New algorithm favors fresh articles
A while back we fixed a lot of issues with karma and how they impacted the Popular articles. But that backfired in a spectacular way: the fixed ranking algorithm favored articles upvoted by users with high karma, to such an extreme that these articles remained on the top of Popular for months. So we took another stab at it, and the new article ranking has a much faster decay, helping you see fresh news every day.

Goodbye karma
Karma has been giving us a ton of performance issues, so we decided to drop it. It's replaced by a much more straightforward activity score, akin to Reddit: there's no ranking decay, and the more you share, vote and comment, the higher the rank. Top ranking users will have a more influential vote than rookies. Your rank is currently hidden, but at some point we will make it public. It's worth noting that we're not resetting anyone's rank. Instead, we're calculating it based on your past activity.

We're actively combating spam
We recently saw a spike in spam comments. Unfortunately, since users can register with just their social media accounts, we had a flood of spam accounts dropping backlinks left and right. So we decided to implement captcha in the comments, and it worked like charm. We also stripped all links from the comments - they are replaced by plain text URL. If you want to follow a link in the comment, simply c/p it.

What's next?
For starters, we need your feedback on the ranking algorithm. Please fill out the survey and let us know how to improve it:
https://goo.gl/forms/SAzVHU16xeIvmibT2

We also plan to improve the moderation tools and get more volunteers aboard. If you're interested in helping, let me know, as we're be expanding our moderation team once everything is in place.

As always, don't hesitate to drop your feedback in the comments. This website is yours as well, and I'd love to hear any thoughts that would help us improve the experience for everyone.

Excellent that you've taken the bull by the horns, there had been a bit of a decay, recently, so I'm thrilled you've taken the effort to do this - thank you!

Great that spam is being handled neatly.

Re the ranking algorithm, we'll have to see how it works out in general, I do tend to stay back from commenting and sharing, but I do upvote articles which really hit the sweet spot. So I'm a semi-lurker so to speak, with stringent "requirements" for upvoting :-)

Hope that doesn't impact my "influence"...just wanted to make the comment public, since it might be a valid concern for other people like myself.

Isnt' it somewhat ironic that a site that is "All things WordPress" doesn't actually run on Wordpress? Shouldnt you be setting a practical example?
Also for me, your "Best New Plugins" page results have been broken for weeks. No results are found for any given query.

via NoOrdinaryCat

The current vote strength is no longer relevant, and will be removed from the profiles soon.

via Nemanja Aleksic

Thanks for letting me know, we'll get it fixed.

ManageWP.org was an experiment in new tech to create an interactive website, before we implemented it into the ManageWP product. So we decided to build something for the community, since WordPress was not capable of this back in the day.

via Nemanja Aleksic

That's cool, upvotes are an imoportant piece of helping quality content stay on top. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, David!

via Nemanja Aleksic

Glad to read this. I had left using the site coz of all the issues. :(

Am I the only one who noticed the number of spam comments is too high?

Community | Jun. 18, 2018

I noticed this trend that the number of spam accounts and the number of comments left by these bots? is increasing. Just take a look at this thread here:

https://managewp.org/articles/17402/woo-edd-users-how-to-reduce-credit-card-fraud-by-98-using-stripe-radar

Or this:
https://managewp.org/articles/17522/gdpr-compliant-form-builder-for-wordpress#comments-section

Or this:
https://managewp.org/articles/17250/preparing-your-wordpress-site-for-google-s-upcoming-mobile-first-index

Any ideas or solution?

It's really annoying, and ManageWP doesn't seem to care -- I've sent lots of feedback and flagged comments -- no change.

I've started to visit ManageWP less and less since the quality of comments is going to shit.

via JS Morisset

Have noticed this too, and flagged tons of these spam comments. Make the comment links nofollow, will deter this behavior.

via John Locke

There has been no moderation since months now...

via pol taj

And for obvious reasons. John has a point.

via Binod Kumar Anand

@Pol I have to respectfully disagree. The moderation team is just one person, and I have been busy with WCEU in our own back yard. Otherwise I clean up comments once a week, or whenever I have some extra time.

On a related note, there has been too much spam going on lately, but not sure if nofollow would be enough. My knee-jerk reaction would be to remove links altogether. What do you all think?

via Nemanja Aleksic

Hi Nemanja,

I think nofollow wouldn't be enough, removing links altogether might be a better solution, but I have the feeling that even without links spam won't disappear. Isn't there a way to manually review and approve or reject new accounts? I know this could be definitely a time-consuming task.
Btw. I hope you had a great time on WCEU!

I should spam the crap out of ManageWP

Community | Jul. 4, 2018

I should spam the crap out of ManageWP.org .

I mean, apparently, I'm behind the times, right?

Looks like everyone else is already spamming ManageWP, and I've been left in the dust. I should get all my backlinks from here!

Here's a perfect example. Look at the comments on https://managewp.org/articles/16787/getting-ready-for-gutenberg-helping-developers-prepare-for-it . WTF?

I guess this is what happens when you sell your soul to the devil. (Or Godaddy?)

Obviously, no one gives a crap any longer. Probably time to abandon ship.

Not sure what's taking so long to treat the spam situation, but I think I read somewhere that they were working on it..
With that said - guys, seriously, the amount of spam comments on here is getting obscene.

via Kobe Ben Itamar

I want to flag some spam comments but vote strength is not stronger enough.

via tudoutou

Flagging spam doesn't help, so don't worry. ;-)

via JS Morisset

I don't think it actually has anything to do with GoDaddy, but there was a more extended discussion of it here: managewp.org/articles/17531/am-i-the-only-one-who-noticed-the-number-of-spam-comments-is-too-high

via Sallie Goetsch (rhymes with 'sketch')

This should include a community comment as well as a warning message to the user
