Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

So what does abuse and spam do on the forums?

I was just wondering this I’ve always noticed them but never knew what they are? Can someone explain to me?

    Just an option for you to alert Kabam to someone using the forums in a way you think they shouldn’t. This is often when someone doesn’t think your post is at all relevant or if you post too much, but it is actually pretty useful, like if for some reason your device decides to post the same post three different times (mine has done that before) then people can flag two of them as spam and get Kabam to remove the clutter. Don’t take it too seriously unless you’re actually doing something you probably shouldn’t.

    The disagree button is just as bad as spam/abuse was. Just now, mods aren't notified like they were for the other two.

    Actually don’t understand the “disagree”button. Most of the disagrees I have acquired are on posts I made that didn’t really have a component of agree or disagree. The disagrees were more a statement that they simply didn’t like my post (which is understandable). Worse, I acquired a large new pile of disagrees on some thread yesterday and then the thread disappeared. Don’t even know what statement they were disagreeing with.

    That's why it's no better than the others. People spam it regardless of the posts' content. Mine already has 2 disagrees.

    it absolutely is. I post stuff all the time that is something you can neither agree or disagree with and still get disagrees. People tick disagree on my posts just because they don't like me regardless of what I say. It's abused as much as the other 2 were.

    I ignore them regardless. My like count has always been above either though now it's creeping up. I've made my bed here so I'll gladly sleep in it.

    Any form of disagree buttons in any forum can easily create a toxic environment. Removal of it would encourage people to actually offer counterpoints to things they disagree with, inciting more civil and educated discussions that maybe can lead to a common understanding, instead of just throwing shade at someone by tapping a button.

    Actually, I think it's poetic. You can spam it, but it doesn't affect anything.

    Anyone notice how when you mention the word "disagree" on a post, that it actually attracts the disagrees? 🤔

    Sorry.. I'm not one of those who clicks it normally.. but I had to on this occasion 😂

    But people like the button 😂 many have become very attached to it and seem to love clicking it more than they do responding. I've had people stalk me to dislike my comments after being a little too.. blunt 😅 I wonder if there's a way for mods to tell us how many total of each reaction there are on the forums 🤔

    that's exactly why it's not as bad lol. no one cares about the things on your profile. it just makes it easier for the mods to get the actual spammers and abusers
