Can we ask the developer to make the report icon work?

Post by Les Paul Lover » Fri Aug 11, 2017 8:09 pm

I'm fed up trying to report spam only to be redirected to the main forum selection page.

And the spam, not being reported, stays there for hours.....

For the record, I check the forum twice a day at least. Spam doesn't stay up for 24 hours EVER.

I reported the reporting function not working but I don't know what happened with it. I'll revisit it...

Yeah I know you're very good a checking it, it wasn't a dig at you.
It's mainly a time difference thing - you're the only moderator, and spam can be there early in the morning in the UK, and still be there in the evening.

I don't expect you to check the forum 5 or 6 times a day, I just wish we had the tool to let you know and report spam or offensive posts. Just a matter of being able to help you really.

I had to laugh this morning when I thought about your post. Even if the report feature was working, a reported post is only going to sit there until I read the report. :mrgreen:

In theory, there are other moderators but I get to everything first....

Ah, I assumed that if the reporting function worked, you would receive an email to let you know. If it depends on you checking into the forum anyway, that is a moot point indeed.

Maybe it goes to an email...? I don't remember if that's how the old software worked.....
