Thank you to the several members who were quick to report our recent spammer. It's gratifying to log into the forum and see over half a dozen members all reporting the same spam.

Please do not respond to or quote the spammer's post though, because your post will ger nuked with theirs.

Any way to shorten the time frame on reporting?

Aside from paying Community Leaders to be logged in 24/7, no. We're all volunteers with our own jobs and even lives (I know, hard to believe). I do log in several times a day and I know the other CL's do too. It's just a matter of time before one of us sees the big alert we get at the top of our screen when we log in.

My apologies, I meant as far as reporting spammers. When they post on 5-10 different threads there is a time restriction before you can report another post.

Wasn't aware of that. I'll look into it.

@DesertMedic66 how long was the time frame between being able to report messages? Was it 30 seconds or 3 minutes?

I think it’s only 30 seconds. It’s not bad by any means but when you are trying to report a dozen posts it can be a little long.

Think I found the setting and am in process of testing it.

I was going to start texting @MMiz about the spammer, but I figured he was spending time with his lady friend and she would have not appreciated the interruptions...
