I never understood why someone put Soo much effort in putting up fake servers like this lol

I assume either he wants to sell those servers once they reach a higher rank here or he simply wants to flood the GameTracker tracking network. Plus the time it takes to add and claim his servers are insanely low and there are just milliseconds of difference, which makes me think he might be using a bot to automate the whole process.

It's time to add some ReCaptcha in this site.

This would be a great addition to GameTracker.

Every day that I connect, I am reporting more than 40 servers.
But 20% of the server reports, they don't derank or ban...

Every day accumulates more and more fake servers


A report is not a guarantee of action be taken.

What is favourable is the legitimacy / accuracy of your reports.

Frequency or rather the cumulative total of your reports doesn't directly ascertain that action will be taken.

Notice, when you quoted me, i said LEGITIMATE reports.

The administrator disagreeing with your speculation shouldn't come as a surprise, thus you must re-think what is to be reported and what should not be reported.

A bunch of stuff can be implemented and i agree that there's room for further development.

Account security on GameTracker is my biggest concern among other things.

Integration of two-factor authentication is practically a norm on sites that offer premium account services.

There's current a 7 day delay [upon registration] until you can claim a server.

We all know this is a restriction to prevent obvious malicious activity.

I'm happy with that system — it's one positive thing to extract.

This isn't anywhere near preventing obvious malicious activity. One could just create multiple accounts and just wait a period of 7 days to begin his malicious activities, including adding multiple servers in each account at an alarming rate with fake players to flood the GameTracker system.

Also there isn't any waiting period for adding servers into the GameTracker database without claiming. But still those servers should be tracked by the system.

Placing ReCaptcha in both user account registration and server adding pages will break the functionality of most existing bots.

Two-factor authentication on the other hand is kinda pain sometimes, clicking on e-mail confirmation links or typing codes sent to our phones just to login to our account. Option to turn such a feature on/off would be acceptable.

The only issue (other than the annoyance) with 2FA, is that 2FA codes usually expire.

These codes are usually generated locally, and as such, they rely on the system's clock.

The period of validity is usually [for most services]: 30 seconds.

If your system's clock is a tid-bit off, the code becomes practically useless - or the code isn't sent to your E-mail.

Of course, it should not be mandatory for the obvious annoyance.

I mentioned it a while ago: https://www.gametracker.com/forums/forum.php?site=1&thread=148873#post430927

Yep, something needs to be done, this is getting out of hand.

I shall also reiterate that you must keep actively report those fake servers.
