    Just wondered if we could have a facility to flag up posts to admin (such as the guy selling porn/viagra in the cafe)?

    If you look at the main page you can click on 'moderators' on each section. If one of them is online then you can just pm them and they'll get rid of it.

    punkypossum,

    It's one of the problems of having self-approved new user registrations - you do get some spam too.

    I'll look into adding a 'flag' facility, but I'm hoping to build a large bunch of volunteer moderators who can jump on these spam postings and delete them as soon as they see them.

    You don't fancy becoming a mod do you?

    Cheers,
    Shaun

    Well punkypossum,

    I can't offer much ... especially since I've eaten all the chocolate myself (okay, so I have a weekness, so what!)

    However, as a moderator you'll have power over other mere mortals on the forums, how does that sound? :blush:

    Hmmm...have to say am very disappointed about the chocolate situation...surely you could have saved some knowing that you were planning to recruit loads of moderators!!! :rolleyes:

    Not sure if power makes up for it...especially if it's only over mortals... :blush:

    But I might consider it, let me know the exact job spec! :thumbsup:

    Do you get a free latte with that

    Note to cycle chatters: Please be careful with swallowing to much viagra as it can give you a stiff neck.
     
  8. It does. You get special buttons, you can move entire threads and you have the ability to make other forummers disappear in the night. :rolleyes:

    No, sorry moderators, you can't ban anyone.

    However, if think someone deserves it, PM me and I can suspend/remove/ban them :blush:

    I'm hoping that won't need to happen very often though :rolleyes:
