    Exclamation Okay, something has to be done about this.

    Okay, something has to be done about this. It's the same person SBing 4 times in a row with the same account, somehow bypassing the cooldown. I also saw another scammer SB 3 times in a row with the same account. This has been going on for a week now. Please look into this.

    Also, this is what it looks like with no moderators online. 9/10 SBs being scams luring kids into downloading crap or playing casinos.

    All hell breaks loose when there's no moderators online.

    I also have been seeing stuff like that in game but it always happens when there is no moderators or guardians online.

    Another thing is when you enter worlds that have bots sat there spamming. Kills chat in game. I'm sure the team are working hard on this and always pushing to make the game a better place.

    Welp, they did mention that they will add more guardians and moderators in the near future, so hopefully that could solve this annoying problem.

    Even though we ban them, they eventually return sadly so adding more guardians or moderators not the solution. Best way to avoid them doing is sharing awareness and stop people falling for these.

    No people falling for them = No benefit for them

    So they'll eventually stop when nobody sign-ups.

    I meant that it's the same GrowID that is somehow bypassing the 10-minute cooldown.

    I don't think it should because you get given a mod which I assume is meant to prevent the user from broadcasting until the mod is removed.

    Thanks for letting us know about this, and I'll be sure to notify our team about it. We certainly don't want players to be abusing the broadcast system, especially when it's with illegal activity such as the ones in your screenshot. Apart from the illegal activity in itself, it's unfair to other players who have paid for the broadcast or used their megaphone just to have their message clear off the chat immediately.

    As ByteCode mentioned, please don't fall for these. Phishing scams attempt to gain your password so they can hack your account and steal your items.

    As others have said, thanks for the report. I've managed to figure out how they're doing it, so I'll forward the replication steps on to the team and hopefully it can be fixed as soon as possible to stop nefarious players abusing it to wreak havoc.
