    LandlordZONE's red triangle: reporting posts to Editor



    Editor: can't you instigate a simple "report this post as inappropriate" button, like most forums have?

    LZ already has red triangle with a '!' in it.

        How to report spam on LZ

        How does one report spam or other issue?

        I have searched this site everywhere and have not found any 'contact us" or 'report..." anywhere.

          Press the little red triangle with the exclamation mark in it on the top right of the guilty post.

            I don't have any red triangles at the top of any posts.

              Try looking at the very bottom of the page in the blue strip - it clearly says "contact us": that's what I use.

              P.P.
              Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

                No triangles anywhere.

                Contact us was not showing when I was reading the posts, but now that I am posting a reply, the contact us link has just appeared at the bottom of the page, on the right hand side and first in the list of links.

                I am using Firefox.
                Don''t have access to another browser unfortunately.

                  I'm using Firefox 3.5.7, the triangle appears for me.

                    Oh, the triangles have now appeared.

                    Strange!

                    Maybe a refresh issue?

                      if you are not logged in, ---- no triangles ( can't report post if you are not logged in ! ) Triangles appear only when logged on with your I.D.

                      Don't want the worlds population ( 6.7 billion ) unregistered people posting when not members !

                        That's a good offer by moderator2.

                        Personally, where I moderate I also have email notification of moderated posts turned off.
                        There are just too many, which would swamp your email inbox.

                        I do check everyday there by logging into the moderator control panel and looking...

                        If people see a message that their post has been sent for moderation then please send me a PM and I will then receive an email notification. I do not receive notifications of moderated posts automatically, and would not want to since many moderated posts really are spam. Remember that the action to...

                        I've used and written systems to detect spam, it is possible to make systems user friendly without compromising the security model. Though no system is 100% secure there is a level of tolerance

                        It would also allow spammers to take appropriate measures and amend accordingly.

                        Strangely late yesterday, it's working fine. I completely understand that strictness and security required however giving reasons why it occurs in the first place would allow genuine users to amend accordingly and take appropriate measures.

                        Moderation can be - should be - even stricter on PM's than on public posts.

                        Again I won't go into it because I don't want to give any amateurs ideas, but there are very good reasons why this should be.

                        PS. I just had a post moderated, like I say happens to us all.

                        Do you mean that when you add a link the post is accepted when you 'Post Reply' but is not shown on the forum?

                        If yes, then it has been sent by the automatic anti-spam filters for moderation (approval by a moderator) before it will be shown.
                        It happens to us all now and again, and...
