You can report PMs that you receive from those users. You can also adjust your privacy settings (https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/user/settings_privacy) for who can send you PMs. Those accounts have already been suspended or banned by now so you don't have to keep posting those screenshots. If anything posting those screenshots just gives that user more attention than they need. >_>

That really doesn't get down to the root of the issue though. As I already stated, banning an account does nothing when new users don't have proper restrictions in place. Nobody should have to adjust their privacy setting or notification settings because somebody might send spam/harassing messages.

It can be a help because you know that newer users and alts can abuse it.

Thanks, but that isn't completely related to this issue. See my response to your previous post (post #31)

I read through the Site Suggestion Faqs before posting this, so I think this is okay to post this suggestion. If not, I apologize and this thread can be deleted.

As I'm sure many of the mods and admins are familiar with, Gamefaqs has issues on the boards regarding users creating alt accounts for the purpose of trolling/harassing users. I'm not sure myself how many often this occurs on some boards, but it seems extremely prominent on the Nintendo Switch system board.

Several times a day, new provisional users will crop up, making either a topic or posting within one, and do this to troll other users with the @ mentions. I myself haven't experienced this often, but I see some make a post and use it to notify the same users repeatedly, sometimes upwards of half a dozen or more per post. Of course, the mods get around within the hour to suspend these users and delete the topics/posts, but that doesn't keep them from creating a new account to repeat the process again.

I'd have to imagine this grows tiresome, on both the moderators of the boards and the people who are constantly being mentioned.

An improvement I would like to suggest to the boards that would help alleviate this issue would be to implement user-level restrictions on when they have the ability to use mentions. I would suggest that if such an improvement were implemented, that it be set so that only Rookie Users (Karma = 25+) or Novice Users (Karma = 50+) have this ability.

Thank you very much for your time.

yeah tc i've had this problem too with bad users abusing the mention system. I marked but it seems that they did nothing. And with the new mention system where you can ignore mentioners it seems they will be even far less tough on this abuse in the future.

Pretty sure they've said that's never, ever, for any reason going to come back. Besides, you really honestly think they wouldn't wear it as a badge of honor like the old days....
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

kill on site? do you mean the mods can see if it is from a bad ip address and can insta ban them? why won't they do this again though?
