A clique is just that. It's a way for you to define a smaller audience amongst your friends who share something in common. Maybe 5 of your friends play on the same soccer team, or maybe 3 of your friends work at the same company or maybe 7 of your buddies go for beers and wings every Monday night. Cliques help you manage your audience so that you can send plurks to only the friends who need to be notified.

Yes, you can do all that in 'My Friends'. Second link to your top left.

I saw a message saying my content have been marked as spam and my Karma was declining, why? How can I improve it?

Most likely it would be that our system has detected many of your plurk contained content or links that have been reported as spam by other plurk users.

If you haven't post these plurks, it could be either your plurk account has been stolen, or you've ever signed up for 3rd party services or web sites that requested your Plurk credentials and are using it to post bad content. That is not only violating our terms of service but also leaking out your own privacy and personal information and might potentially spammed your friends and fans.

To fix it, please follow these steps:
1. Change your password right away.
2. Unfollow unnecessary services or Plurk users, i.e. bots.
3. Check if your personal information has been modified. More specially, please check if spammers have replaced your email address.
