Inappropriate Posts  

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've noticed that there is a button for us to report inappropriate posts, but there is no such button for the original post. Maybe if we could report the original post as inappropriate, we could stop some of this advertising.

I see a button to report your post, as the original.

I'm not sure if that is what you are asking?

The "report as a bad post button" disappears when someone pushes it. It takes a bit for the moderators to take them down, but they are aware of the situation.

the reason it disappears is so that the mods are only notified once about the issue and from 20 people reporting the same thing.

The mods really need to step it up, spamming has increased considerably now that word has gotten out that spam posts take a while to be removed.

I don't know what you mean by the mods need to step it up because I spend a minimum of 5 hrs daily on CC editing/moving or removing posts and sending pm's or emails.

And spam posts don't always take a while to remove since I often remove them almost immediately after they're posted. Of course, you wouldn't know that since no one had an opportunity to see them....

If you want to deter spam postings, here's how you can help.

#1 Use the "Report Bad Post" tab. (This tab disappears once the report is initiated.)

#2 Don't respond to the spam poster. This only keeps the thread popping up on the homepage (which is what the spammer wants).

#3 Don't post for moderator help in the thread - we won't necessarily see it. And any additional posts keep the thread active.

# 4 Don't ask other members to initiate a "Report Bad Post" notification on your moderator help post (see #3 above) as this also only keeps the thread alive and popping up on the homepage.

And I'm locking this thread because I know I'm doing as much as I can.... Some members will never be satisfied with CC moderating policies, and will never have a kind word for any of the moderators...

So if you wish to complain, please pm Heath.
