In our ongoing battle with spammers, we’ve implemented a few new rules and systems to help catch and ban them. These protocols went into effect yesterday, and they introduce new captcha effects (mutes as well as bans) alongside specialized IP bans for certain kinds of account abuse. The captcha changes are going to be active for only a handful of preselected worlds as we test their effects, while the IP bans are already global. We can’t go into the specific triggers for these bans as that would help spammers figure out how to get around them, but you should hopefully see a further reduction in spam shortly.

Thanks for playing Growtopia. We’re going to keep working to make it as fun as possible, and these efforts are part of that goal!
