Hi folks.

Apologies if another Mod has already brought this to your attention, but we are having technical issues with the flagging system, the content of a flagged post/topic is not pulling through, and therefore can't be viewed by the mods.

Until this is resolved it may be better to PM a mod with your issue, and tell us the topic in question, who has made the post and the page number. That way we can try and resolve it.

Apologies for this, and extra special apologies if this has already been discussed.

    It must be the result of the last site upgrade which seems to have changed a few of the settings? For example, the emoticons are gone too.

    This is unforgivable! So many trolls needing herding, but how are we expected to stop it without the tools?

    I'd flag the OP to let my voice be heard, but that's well done in, isn't it!! A PM will have to do!!!

    Easy tiger. We have reported the bug to the developers. We will be trying a patch in the next few days. Until then we appreciate your patience.

    @MI6, I was joking, wasn't being serious. I tried to make it more obvious by including increasing levels of exclamation points, but I probably should've included a sarcasm alert too as context or meaning gets lost. Apologies. ;)

    Thank you Brady. Some people are prone to excessive exclamation points, even when being serious.

    Our tech guys have installed the patch and prelim testing looks promising. If there's no hiccups in the next few days I'll consider it fixed, and close off this thread.

    I think it's worth noting that I haven't seen any spam bots on this site in a while. No one trying to sell us lotion or "male enhancement" BS. So even with this glitch preventing the flagging of topics, the actual need to flag topics has gone way down. Good work @MI6

    Sounds good. We all appreciate any behind the scenes operations.

    Hi.
    Just a heads up. Please, when you flag something you feel needs the attention of a moderator could you please make sure you include a full explanation of why the post is offensive. Believe it or not, it isn't always obvious.

    Also, the flagging system isn't there for people's amusement.
    All mods have their sense of humour removed as soon as they are promoted.

    Worth remembering.
