    Sometimes the forum is hit with obvious spam, there is a report option for all posts, how many of us use it or know when to?

    How many reports does Jim need to react, my guess is he has already seen them, so do we need to bother reporting?

    Today we had a good example, an ex employee slating his former employees, well out of order IMO, so I reported the post, but how many other did, or needed to?

    Oh and BTW if we had likes on a 'pulled' thread where do they go :LOL:

    Apart from my last line this was a semi serious question

    Is it useful to report posts or should we just leave it to Jim?

    I report the odd spam but not very often.

    I think that Jim has other things to attend to during the day apart from looking at every posting on the Fun forum.
    A " Heads Up " of a Spam posting etc, is not out of place.

    Jim can't have his eyes on every post all the time ... so, yes I do occasionally report spam posts if I see them quickly.

    Yes do report it the more people that report it the better. It brings it to my attention and also if enough people report it then it get's hidden from view until I can get to it. (y)

    I report stuff posted in the wrong forum
    If it isn't kept on top of it would be a right mess
    Can't be too difficult to know whether a subject is Motorhome chat or not
    can it ? Surely

    I do wonder the same, but have decided that some devices, maybe small phones for instance, it is hard to see all the detail, a lot of posts all end up in Chat I presume because it is the default forum

    This is not something I would I would have thought to use the report option for though

    Well if it wasn't kept on top of it would be rubbish wading through all the u shaped lounge stuff in the Motorhome chat forum
    Jim certainly keeps on top of it (y)

    Likewise technical stuff should be posted in tech mech as it helps everyone whether it be a question or information to find it while browsing as the search function only works when people use the correct words/description rather than just HELP

    Thanks for that. I often see a thread and think what the devil is that doing in . . . Never thought about hitting Report as I thought of that as for naughties.(y)

    Unless something is offensive to someone, I wouldn't report it ..... we are grown ups and can sort our own heads and mess out most of the time.

    But according to postings above it's actually helpful for Jim if postings in the wrong place are reported and I'm all for helping the boss man as much as possible.;)
