person spamming airlines

Post by Bigdog2995 » Fri Sep 18, 2015 10:08 pm

is anyone else having problems with someone called Konstantinos Psarris trying to spam airlines by constantly joining and quiting (like 30 -40 times)?
This is extremely annoying and after trying to help them, they seem to be doing it on purpose, is there a way for staff to stop him?

Unfortunately yes. We have had this clown do the same thing to us. As Red Dog suggested we closed our VA to new pilots for a few days and this seemed to work. Fingers crossed.

HI BigDog,

I see he did try to apply to your airline at Mar 27, 02:42, and withdrew the application at Mar 27, 03:29. How many notifications did you receive? I only see one request to your airline but applied to four different airlines before he was accepted somewhere. I agree he needs to wait more than 15 minutes to be accepted.

I have had perspective pilots apply to my airline and then cancel the application minutes later, leaving me no time to reply. I agree this is annoying but am not sure what to do to prevent it.

Fortunately we did not have him/her apply 40 times but it was a regular daily application, sometimes a few times in a day. Touch wood it has not happened of late

I could build in something where if you apply to an airline and then withdraw the application you can't apply again for some period of time, but if they do it once a day, but as Skids just said, it was a daily application so that would not help that situation much.
