thanks for the reply Karlos

I used to be on a forum that had a report button
and I know the difficulties involved
I am not sure how it worked but it was simply a little check box that was in all posts
when you clicked on it had a drop down menu which you then selected the appropriate issue

nudity
spam
offensive
legal

legal were for all the posts which could bring issues for the forum
how it worked from there I have no idea
guessing messages were sent to the mods or post to a hidden sub group ?

I think the biggest problem was abuse of the button were members simply clicked the button on posts they didn't like

anyway I hope that helps in some way

been on here for some many years and it does seem to be a growing problem
not just here but across the board with all forums

I did consider creating that functionality, but never got around to doing it.

I'll have a think how best to implement it (from the MOD perspective)
From the user perspective it's simply a 'report' button, with maybe a couple options to say why you want to report the post (e.g. abuse)

Thanks,
Karlos

Is there already or can we have a report button ?
lots of threads have spam in them adds or offencsive coments
if we don't have one already can we have a button to click which would send the mods message about the offending post

we have lots of Mods here but some many post go unseen
and just left
