Bots on blenderartists.org

Have you noticed the abundance of bots replying to posts, especially in the Paid Work section. These bots appear to be completely inactive in other sections and haven’t posted any artworks. Despite this, they reply to posts in the Paid Work section instantly.

There do seem to be accounts here with autoresponders in #jobs:paid-work. They’re not violating any rules, but they’re also not doing much to positively contribute to the community here. We’re working on sorting out the best solution for that.

Just thinking out loud here.

A solution to solve this problem could be to form a rule in which a person can only respond to posts in the Paid Work section if they have uploaded a finished project or created a certain number of posts in other sections. This would restrict many users with autoresponders.
