Reporting spam in the News Forum

Postby VoiD88 » Tue Nov 12, 2013 10:25 am

There's a spam post in this thread but for some reason there is no Report Button in the News Forum. I suggest either locking all threads in that forum or adding a Report Button :wink:

I know that. I was talking about the third post in the topic I linked (which has since been deleted). That one was not made by an admin but there was still no way for me to report it since there are no Report Buttons in the News Forum. That's why I created this topic^^

A private message to one of the mods or admins is a more efficient tactic than creating a new post in another forum. NeoThermic, bert_the_turtle, and Jelco should all have the ability to deal with problems like that. An additional note to NeoThermic to enable reporting might be useful.

I got prodded to this by NeatNit, as I've been busy writing a novel (how novel of me!).

I have enabled reporting of posts in the IV News section, you should see a wonderful report icon at the top right of any posts in there!

Now back to my novel..
