More Spam Than Your Grandma's Fridge

Dear CTzens,

First, apologies for the lack of regular updates after Jake’s post yesterday. We’ve been behind-the-scenes trying to figure out solutions to the obvious spam issues Car Throttle has seen since Tuesday morning.

Here’s what we know so far:

Blasted spammers have been using the web app and have exploited a vulnerability which has allowed them to quickly create accounts and automatically post links related to ‘HD movies’. We thought it might be an isolated incident so, with the mod team, started to manually ban and remove posts on the spot.

This problem though has been occurring at a far higher rate than we’ve been able to manually manage. Before we’re able to push a fix, we have to set all Topics to ‘Editorial or Staff’ only.

Due to the tens of thousands of posts created, we may have to roll back the Community to a state on Tuesday morning. This means that there is a possibility legitimate user posts may be deleted in the Great Purge.

I advise you all to backup your posts to a Google Doc or Word and repost when we push a fix, hopefully within the next 48 hours. Also, we will have to mass delete all registered users who have recently joined in the last 48 hours. If you are a new CTzen here, I apologise, but you may have to sign back up after we have fixed the issue.

To all those saying we no longer care about the platform… you’re wrong! We’ve just been silently working away and we should’ve been more vocal about what we’re doing to fix. Please bear with us. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, we have a limited number of people in the team and still have to produce regular video content across our other profiles… how good was the last season of 2 Guys 1 Car?!

Speak to you again very soon.

Attention: the Car Throttle app is no longer supported. Please use the mobile site!

Hello all! Since we receive a few comments about app issues every week, I’d just like to clarify once more that the Car Throttle app is no longer supported. We don’t have the resources to provide updates and bug fixes, hence why the app was removed from the Google Play and Apple App Store a few years ago.

If you still have the app on your device it will function, but poorly - for the best user experience, please use the mobile site.

I know the app still has a lot of fans, but as CT founder Adnan explained a while ago, it was part of a business plan we had to move away from.

Thank you for your understanding, and stay safe :)

You've waited months for this, and I can now finally announce that our new iOS app - plus an updated look on Android and web with over 100 brand new communities - is now live!

When modifications go too far, it becomes difficult to even tell what the original car was. See if you can guess what these cars used to be before they were riced beyond recognition!
