Gallery spams and rude comments

«1
Hello all!
I was wondering if there is a way to delete from your own uploaded creations rude comments or spams. Either blocking the person or simply deleting them one by one.
Since one of my household was favorited by Maxis, I have had a couple of very rude comments and a specific player pesting the comments' section writing one word messages after another.
Thanks for your help!

And also, please, don't be rude to creators in the gallery, it's really not nice. If you don't like someone's creation, just don't download it. Is as easy as that.

    When you hover over the comment, a little arrow appears and says delete or report. I don't think you can block people, unfortunately. If anyone knows how. let me know too!

    Yeah no, you can't block people which is a shame. But like the above comment said, you can do it by the arrow and when you also hover over the comment there's an x button on the top right of it that will delete it :)

    Have you tried blocking the user in Origin? The Gallery uses Origin privacy settings, so it's worth a try.

    Great tip! I deleted all this person's messages and I don't remember the user name properly. But will definitely try that next time.

    I had that happen once with one of my creations. In much the same way you described too, posting one brief comment after another. They got to a total of four before they stopped.

    I think it's like a rule of the internet that as exposure goes up, the probability of mean comments goes up exponentially.

    I posted a family that Maxis favorited... you may have seen it, "The Creeps". It was before Vampires were released and it's under my Origin username Vampiricdreams31. You just got to overlook the immature rude comments. Most of the time they just make me laugh. They also tend to re-release the very content that made a rude comment on trying to pass it off as their own. I don't delete the comments just for the fact that it gives me motivation to keep creating projects I really enjoy and can relate with, plus if I can't find something to amuse me I hop on once in awhile and read all the bashing my upload received. Oh, and congrats on the upload. Sorry you're dealing with the trolls though.

    Do people who do that sort of thing not realise that by putting such comments there for all to see, with their EA ID right next to it they're saying to the whole gallery "I am a massive plum." ?

    I can't think of anything more boring than looking through the gallery and spam people and their creations.

    Congrats on the Maxis Fave and sorry for the hate you're getting =/
    But I've always wondered and it kinda fits in here...:
    How do I recommend something for a Maxis Fave? There are a lot of great gallery entries, that I'd like to.
    I just wish for the perfect Mycroftsim *sigh*

    Thanks!
    There is a thread somewhere to recommend other summer's creation (where a very kind player recommended me). I'm trying to find it so I can post the link here.
    Will edit this when found.

    Found it! http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/845345/best-households-ever-recommendations-for-maxis-tab/p1

    I know right?
    - What's your plan for the evening?
    - You know, the usual. Watch some TV, order take away and pest the comment section on every creation Maxis favorited today that I don't agree with.

    I would definitely report them before deleting. But I see you've already deleted the comments now. If they do return, remember to report them first.

    Wow I had no idea there was a problem for creators like this..and slightly off topic would just like to add:

    I would like to thank each and every one of you for all your creations over the years which have given me so much pleasure and made my games look unique and wonderful, and continue to do so :)

    Aww I am sorry to hear that people were so rude on your creation. I don't get that people can't just mind their own business. This game is about encouraging creativity, and obviously people will all have different ideas on what they like and don't like. We're not clones of one another, so we won't all think alike. Anyways, congratulations on having an item favourited by EA, that is an achievement in itself and something to be proud of! So hold your head up high because I am sure there are thousands of people who liked what you did. xx

    Congrats on the Maxis Fav. *hugs* so sorry about the jerks that were rude to you you don't need that and they are not worth your time of day sweetie. The Sims Community is like a big family and yes there are a few "bad seeds" in it but they are not worth the stress. *hugs*

    Congrats on the fave! Such a shame that trolls try to ruin the fun for you. I never understood the point of trolling... As far as I know, it only benefits your careers in the sims ;)

    99 percent of the comments are so positive and happy when I get a maxis fave.

    Most players are thankful for the people who contribute to the gallery. But theres sometimes 1 in the bunch who is a bad apple. Its so silly and immature. I just delete the one bad apples comments. Because it happened once and then my follower defend me, I dont want them feeling the need to do that or stress themselves I just remove that person comment for seeking attention. Thankful for the delete button. No room for negativity.
