[SOLVED] Spam detected
This thread seems to me like spam:
A guy trying to sell bulbs and lamps. Well.
I am not sure if people around here use to report those kind of activities. Since the traffic volume on this forum is not that high. But anyway, is there a thread where we (users) can report such kind of things on a centralized manner? On the Gentoo forums we have a sticky for that purpose, it's the first one in the forums feedback section:
Gentoo Forums :: View Forum - Gentoo Forums Feedback
So the users can help reporting threads that violate the forum rules (mostly spam). And the administrators and moderators just look into that thread, and erase the reports as soon as the relevant problem has been addressed. It seem to work pretty well there.
Just report it as spam using the symbol with ! in next to the status of the member ... maybe I am missing your point ?
Ed: as ozar says ... its the triangle icon report post under their use name.
Definitely spam, but it's better to use the "report post" button under the user's username. It's the little red triangle icon.
Thanks for the feedback.
Thanks. You didn't miss my point. It was I who missed that tiny triangle. I will use it next time instead. Thanks both.

A text link or an icon with the word "report" in it would probably be a better option for reporting posts.
Yup, count me in that group of ......... :mrgreen:
