|04/10/2012 01:01:08 Huh? preferred suddenly...GD, I am catching up|
I have been preferred by 9 newbs in the last few days. I have not had any contact or games with any of them. Is this some kind of weird weewar spam or stalking?

|Probably stalking. There used to be a lot of players whom I felt I knew well, even though I had never, or hardly ever, played them. Because I stalked. And who wouldn't notice, remember and love you, with the distinctive name, prolific chat and a bunch of games named "Fustercluck"?|
|04/10/2012 21:34:13 Re:huh?|
I am up to 10 now. Looks like none of them have ever taken a turn.
Is anyone else getting this?
|04/10/2012 21:41:00 Re:huh?|
Now that I checked, I seem to have one.
Edit: Kain7 also seems to have one, someone who has not even logged in yet - but has still started two games.

I had a newb invite me to a game, actually played a few turns, never said a word and hasn't come back since. Twas a bit weird.
maybe we can start compiling a list. Could be a sign of an impending spam attack:

Your newb may be legit; they atleast played. None of my 13 have taken a turn. My new friends:
To join weewar in August 2011, never take a turn, and then prefer me in October 2012 is just weird. To have 4 people do that is

|You must be spedjul. Classic spam-bot behavior from what I can tell. I forget what the reasoning is for showing as never having logged in. I think it has something to do with not having responded to a verification email or something. Spadequack knows.|
|08/10/2012 19:09:54 Re:huh?|
|Ya, I got one too. Some hump named General_Death, though it looks like he has played a few turns. Anybody heard of him?|

and another to add to the list:
|17/10/2012 23:23:21 Re:huh?|
ok, you guys are just ***king with me now
|18/10/2012 22:17:30 Re:huh?|
Yay, I got some too! Was worried that I was missing out...
novernmilomi: Has logged in as recently as a few hours ago but doesn't seem to have played a single turn.
carollholka: Logged in 3 days ago but hasn't played anything yet.
Somebody optimizing bots to enter Weewar? What a waste of effort. Or (badly paid, presumably) humans trying to do the same? Half-assedly?

I have that 1 too. Added your other buddy to the list.

|I was invited to a game by a trial player (citymurph) who's profile says he hasn't even logged in yet. How is that even possible? Could it be the same kind of thing as these mystery prefers?|
