AutoModerator is effective at accomplishing this, but it won't prevent players unless that subreddit were to become content that is exclusive to OSRS Accountsonly from posting queries or OSRS content. Furthermore, it appears that many articles fitting this criteria are posts from users who will gravitate towards 2007 Runescape after being redirected there, which typically happens in the comments. Posts removed or would get filtered which are on topic if we were to try that with AutoModerator. If there is a post filtered, eliminated this could create some unnecessary frustration for our users, and/or receives an automatic response that is irrelevant to the post topic.

For a short while, we used to get but there were far too many false positives together with articles that weren't filtered, so it was removed. Our reasons for wanting to filter these posts were to remove articles that have an uncensored phishing url (possibly putting other users at risk) and eliminating articles which attempted to ask Jagex for account help related to a hijacking after getting these emails (Rule 7).

We may be able to improve our Account Support Wiki pages by incorporating information, while flagging these articles may not be sensible. The RuneScape Wiki has some great info in regard to such scams in addition to many others which are located inside and outside of Runescape. I see, I only find it pretty sad to find some articles developers post their OSRS themed content or questions on here and receive essentially refused by the sub (who are often thinking about another OSRS themed subs), although this sub is for both match communities since you stated.

Yes, those who comment connected to another sub them, but in some cases just and they tend to delete the article on here keep it on the other. If a reply doesn't work, maybe a warning which appears before submitting? We all know of the bottom into the OSRS sub in the Partner Subreddits section, but most people who post OSRS only themed articles, don't even appear there, since they didn't understood the existence of the 2007 Runescape subreddit and are grateful when the people who remark mention it, its getting clear that the base leading to the sub par on the side bar is not enough. I'd thought the one would be hard to implement, props. I concur on using uncensored phishing urls before thinking twice.

But yea about phishing some more action may need to be taken, these malicious groups are improving their ways to capture unsuspecting victims more and more these days. We've spilled streams on twitch, phishing ads to RuneScape and Buy OSRS Gold in most social networking platforms (I wouldn't be surprised if one of these malicious ads eventually make its way to this sub ad locations) along with also the classic phishing emails and fake websites. I've even seen some bad efforts to phishing being submitted on this sub that result in bogus forums and I am glad they've been eliminated before anybody fell victim.
