Every single community's members page right now looks like this. 

The poor state of the members page has been pointed out many times already. Now the spammers are exploiting the shortcomings.

You have to remove every account separately. There is still no sock puppet detection.

What's worse: Deleted accounts are not removed from the communities. In a 5k community I just found ~200 dead accounts. You cannot clean it up in steps, because there is no pagination, so you cannot come back later to page 10 or something like that.

I am fully aware that moderation has the lowest priority on Google+. But this is ridiculous. All of this could be solved with a few very simple changes:

- Sort members by the date they have joined the community.
- Remove all memberships of deleted accounts automatically.
- Enable pagination on that page.
- Limit memberships for an account to 10 per day and 50 total.

This isn't rocket science. I have written such code multiple times. Every programmer can do that before breakfast. An intern might need a whole day. Google, do you have interns? Please?

Keep in mind that you need to toggle on "Ask to join" before cleaning out pornbots and click-bait. Also, it will be necessary to go through the membership roster to remove the porn click-bait which has been salted-in under fake profiles. Think the only way to do it is manually( ugh!).

Habt ihr noch ungenutzte Blogs herumliegen?

Ich habe dieses gerade auf einem meiner selten genutzten Server gefunden. Jetzt will ich mal alle alten Installationen entweder wegwerfen oder in einer Multisite-Installation bei Uberspace zusammenziehen, damit ich nur noch ein Updateziel dafür im Auge behalten muss.

Was macht ihr mit alten Blogs?

Ich schließe mich +Monika Thon-Soun an. Vielleicht kannst du Inhalte in deine anderen Blogs übertragen, die thematisch passen. Das habe ich in den vergangenen Jahren schon öfter selbst so gemacht und damit die Anzahl meiner Blogs reduziert (gerade erst mit exklusivtext.de, das nun frei geworden ist). Oder du bietest noch aktuelle Themen als Gastartikel irgendwo an. Multisite ist eine gute Option, um die Updates nur an einer Stelle durchführen zu müssen.

Ignoriert selbst nach telefonischer und öffentlicher Ermahnung das Einwurfverbot am Briefkasten und stopft allwöchentlich eine geballte Ladung Werbung hinein. Im Impressum fehlen Telefonnummer und E-Mail-Adresse. Unseriös und sehr verzichtbar.
