Hi Guys, I just wanted to let you all know that this channel is relatively less monitored by the staff, than the staff section on the forum. Please make sure you post on the forum for issues like this as well for quick visibility.
I think the tool should be fine because it does explicitly tells that the cert is verifiable at their freeCodeCamp username URL which will not be the case for abusers. That said, we should not let them advertise it on freeCodeCamp's community channels because that would be spam as per our CoC.
I would hide the user's comment

@ojeytonwilliams @thecodingaviator I have responded to the PDF generator comment.

Regarding the article where the person plugged their book a bit harder than we prefer - we will be on the lookout for this in the future.

Thanks, Quincy. It did seem a bit off.

Can someone ban user sq-dr-art2 on GitHub? The user is creating random off-topic comments.

My bad. I hadn’t seen this before reopening the issue on Github. @raisedadead I’m not sure if that’s to remain closed. Please close it if required

Hi, yesterday I contacted a freecodecamp admin member because I couldn't enter the forum. I think it was Randal something ?? I'm so bad at names and people and I can't find that list of people anymore. He works in a company that produces real estate internet solutions. Anyway, PROBLEM SOLVED! THANK YOU! I got in, reset my password.

Hello all, I would open this in the forum, but have been struggling to get on...
Is anyone aware of what is causing a massive influx of spammers to the forum? Is this the cause of the server troubles?
I am shooting down about 10 spam accounts reported by the system, every hour, since coming on today. The accounts are all reported because the user/bot is creating accounts without reading any topics. They are ranging from auction sites, to escourt services.

Yes, I figured that
I am trying to mitigate the attack.
Thanks for reaching out. You can leave the posts as is.

Hello, first time here and don't really know the Functions of this forum. I am interested in creating a course for freecodecamp but couldn't find a means to contact anyone except a link from the code of conduct page that links to an Admin forum

Is this the right place to report questions? The above multiple choice was part of the Python intro curriculum.

@ojeytonwilliams
Hi @igmrrf and @FrankGrimm, this room is intended for reporting code of conduct violations and the like. The best places to discuss adding new features/courses and reporting problems with the site are either the contributor room or the repository itself

Hi, @ojeytonwilliams thanks, I'll head on over there then, apologies.

Hey all, is anyone else noticing an increase in the number of spam posts on the forum?

@raisedadead
Hi Shaun, I think we should discuss this on the staff section in the forum. Not evryone visits this chat room
Do you mind starting a thread with your observations.
