Reporting Spam or dubious posts

Post by Dawnspell »

A couple of posts got through today, not sure how as I couldn't see they had been approved, but they were spam. A little reminder if anyone sees a post which they think is dodgy they can report it by clicking on the upside down triangle with an exclamation mark inside once viewing the post. Admin / Mods get a notification so know to take a look :D

Don't forget that posts in "New Members" don't require approval and we occasionally have spammers sneaking in via this avenue.
Earlier this afternoon I deleted a spammer who had made five posts in "General chit chat" but fortunately they were held up in the moderation queue.

I don't think there is a facility to report dodgy posts in Tapatalk :(

Gina - if you tap the post a box comes up with 4 option, tap on more & a report button comes up ;)
