Default Reporting spam posts 60 seconds

Charlie,
Please consider eliminating the 60 seconds required for reporting spam posts. I just reported 6 of them, and it took 6 minutes plus. I could have done all of them in 30 seconds. I don't see any benefit to the rule.

Agreed, I've been reporting the SPAM posts for weeks now and the 60 second limit is a bit annoying.

This kind of message only needs to be seen the administrator and he sees it sooner if you send it through the Contact Us link at the bottom righthand side of each SaturnFans page. FWIW, I agree that the 60 second rule between citing spam messages is a hinderance and we spend time unnecessarily because of it.

I disagree. I posted it here to gain support from the community. Plus this is a suggestion box for changes to the forum, and I am suggesting a change to the forum.

Using this suggestion box allows members to weigh in publicly while sending Charlie a pm may help too. He may or may not check the suggestion box or private messages often. Perhaps the time out is to ensure anyone reporting useless posts/threads need to be sure its worth reporting. I'm frustrated too with the time delay when attempting to report several posts/threads when a wave of spam occurs.

You are quite correct! I had not taken notice of this sub-forum area.

Thumbs Up Re: Reporting spam posts 60 seconds

Great idea! I didn't realize there was a limitation. I'll check to see if it's something that I can change. There shouldn't be any restrictions on reporting posts. I really appreciate everyone reporting posts; it's a huge help to me. I cleaned up several posts this evening.

Thank you and Happy New Year!
Charlie

Still at 60 seconds. There is a spambot out of control over on the off topic forum.

Default Re: Reporting spam posts 60 seconds

No worries. To make up for the delay in reporting spam simply needs active members to report spammers. I prefer clicking on the exclamation box under a member name, the box next to the box giving reputation to a member. The other choice is clicking on the 'Contact Us' at the bottom of the page.

All it takes is active members to report spam. Most active members reporting one spam message can make up for one member having to wait 60 seconds before reporting more spam. When very annoyed, I'll wait on the delay then repeat reports on different spam. Charlie appreciates it as he gets an impromptu list.
