  • Flagging Spam

    Is there a way to flag comments as spam? These post resurrections due to "smart bot" advertising are getting a little carried away.

    At the bottom and on the right side of any post you can see a bunch of symbols. Click on flag but not like.

      Neil, the pages do not display consistently (IE 11 up to date, all caches cleared).

      Looking at your post above, I do in fact see: "Quote Comment Flag Like."

      However, looking at today's SPAM post in this thread:

      http://www.adkhighpeaks.com/forums/f...terproof-shell

      I only see "Quote Comment Like." The "Flag" button is not displayed...

      Maybe the Spammers have figured out how to suppress the "Flag" button in VBulletin?

        I see the flag option in the linked-to post (sigh, a-nuther one - we are getting hammered!) but perhaps that is because I'm logged in as an admin. Anyone else?

          I'm not seeing the flag option at all. I seem to remember it being there before but currently, using Chrome version 61.0.3163.100 (all history and cache cleared) I don't see it.

            Then I guess the best option is to right-click the post number and select save link location and send it to me, num-num or kyler in a PM entitled Spam. Or, is there a report this post option available to you?

              I don't have a report this post option either.

              Then as I said, right-click the post number (upper right hand corner) and PM the link.

            It's also missing for me (Firefox 56.0.2 Windows 7). Although weirdly, I can see it in the Photography sub-forum, but that's the only one

              I've been getting SPAM "visitor" messages as well. One day I got a dozen messages from a dozen different visitors all with the same link to a site for buying cheap Levitra. It's becoming a bit annoying.

              I think it's a software setting that is disabled and only for the sub-forums grouped under the Hiking heading. All others (ADK Slides, Other Places, Family and Friends) allow the posts to be flagged.

              Looking for Views!

                I'm digging into the absence of spamming tools for the users.

                  This should be resolved. You should see the reporting tools in all forums.

                    Thanks, NumNum. I have flagged the post I mentioned earlier.
