The official way to report a botted playlist

Hi, 

Me and many other artists, keep getting added to these obviously fraudulent botted playlists which is very annoying. Especially now with the upcoming rule change. What is the official way of reporting these? I can't really see any good option when I'm right-clicking report. Or would that be "deceptive content"?

Hey @Mixepix,

 

Thanks for coming to the Community.

 

I've had someone look into this and right now, you can report images, playlists, or text that violates Spotify's content policies through the desktop app.

  1. On the desktop app, right-click the playlist title or artist name.
  2. Select Report. A form will open in your browser.
  3. Complete the form and Submit.

That's all the info I have on this. Hope this helps 🙂

Thanks Maxim! So I've seen the Report button, but I'm unsure what option I should choose after. The options I get are:
1. Sexual contents 
2. Violent or Dangerous 
3. Hateful and Abusive
4. Deceptive Content
5. I just don't like it

I guess the "Deceptive Content" option is the closest then?

Hey @Mixepix,

 

Yep, that's right 🙂 Pick the "Deceptive Content" option.

 

Thanks!

Brilliant! Thanks 🙂 

I have come across a user who seems to be selling public playlists.

 

The playlists have lot of likes are comes on top when searched.

The playlists contains related songs and at the end have unrelated songs added by another user.

 

How can I report this user, the report button has no option to report this kind of TOS violations.
