@sarahw Please give us a Meta avatar so we feel better about giving you a hard time and can recognize you. Who threw you into the lions den? Welcome ;-)

Think about who techs are and their environment. You live surrounded by people while a tech is all alone in a back room and maybe talks to one to two customers a day. It's a very solitary life. So social skills are not outstanding most of the time. Actually iFixit ends up being our social life. ergo we tend to be a rather strange breed. Rather brighter than usual as the profession demands it. More apt to relax with a good technical manual or video than the Iliad. But fairly close knit here. I hope you can enjoy your time with us and learn about a new subculture..

@mayer sorry I hadn't posted an avatar sooner! Now you have a face with the name. I hope to get to know and learn from all of you techs as we go along this journey. We all appreciate everything you do for the community very much.

@sarahw - Welcome!

So you played Paper, Scissors, Rock with Kristen and you won! ;-}

@mayer you need to get out more ;-}

I've been busy fighting city hall these last few months. Our community is under redevelopment threat unleashed! Trying to reign them in a bit so we don't loose the character of our small part of Bean-town.

Thank you @danj I appreciate the welcome and I'm happy to have won ; ) Thank you for all you do for the Community too!

@sarahw https://www.ifixit.com/User/1989259/Mike... user seems robotic to me. Either a spammer trying to build ground or a false alarm.

@nick double checked all answers provided and it is popping up now. multiple direct links to "Supportandhelp4u". Delete! Spammer!!!!!

by

@oldturkey03 I don't see an EDU group association, which is where the red flag came from.

If it was an EDU student easy write-off as another misguided student group. They also stand out differently from spam.

by

@nick looks like a good setup. Started with some great answers from their blog and it went downhill from there ;-)

by

@oldturkey03 Yeah. The writing format was a massive flag since there was no student group attached.

by

Hi @nick and @oldturkey03 sorry for the delayed response! Thank you! I took care of it.

I suspect he’s going to push spam again. Hasn’t spammed yet (and changed it enough to hide their blog from Google) but he needs to be watched by more people.

Why they thought it was going to end in a favorable way is beyond me. That entire post needs help.

The way she writes her posts is weird. I don’t know if she’s been looked into yet. She came up when Rickey bumped an old post.

Hi @nick, thank you! We appreciate your concern, however so far she hasn't done anything worthy of a ban. Please let us know if she does anything that warrants a ban.

Hello @jogihara , @kristen,

I found a Spam when patroling around iFixit modifications :

Here is the spammer : https://fr.ifixit.com/User/3223245/Hair+...

Be carefull the spamers have done modifications in a guide by erasing it’s initial good content :

Here is a link to concerned patrol preview (I haven’t enough reputation to refuse the modifications):

Here is the concerned tutorial : “Nintendo Switch Lite Teardown“
