oh, after i saw you post after me on this http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=93426 i assumed i had got it wrong, what do you do when you see this then? use the report button?
#3
Yeah, Using the report button is best as it sends a message to all mods/admin, Normally the quickest way to get something checked out.

sorry rayman, i just thought it wasnt allowed then you posted i thought oh poops i got me facts wrong :oops: Do you follow the removal with a pm to let them know why? just wondering as some newbies maybe not aware of certain rules (a bit like meself) yes i know we should read all rules but most of us do them over time :?
#9
Yes I've just PM'd and moved the thread for now.

By all means use the report button or PM a moderator if you see anything that might need looking at urgently :)

Normally a mod sends a PM to the original poster, Sometimes it gets forgotten (has in the past, they're human after all!) but the majority of the time a PM is sent. :thumbsup:

oh thats good then i would hate to think the poor person is thinking what the heck have i done, i know how i felt when i was having posts removed and that wasnt in the for sale but im sure they would be confused like i was, like i say most of us tend to read the rules as we go rather than the day we sign up :oops:
#12
When I post the disclaimer, I have a quick glance down the for sale thread, but not an in-depth read. :) And you guys with your thousands of eyes usually spot more than us :)

Unfortunately i've only got 2 eyes. :-(

How many eyes do the mods have? 1 big eye? or hundreds of little eyes? :?

Have the rules been relaxed again lately as i notice that bumping is once again rife and requesting copyrighted material seems to have gone unnoticed although reported.
#15
No they haven't, I think you're over exagerating a bit as we've only received two reported posts today in For Sale or Trade and none of them concerning copyrighted material?

As I said above, if there is something you consider to be more in need of urgent attention, please PM a moderator. We do eventually get round to reported posts, but thread bumps aren't high priority.
#16
Mmmm but why sould we report it when thats wot the mods r there for. that there job

I reported it several days ago...........but nothing happened so i passed the details on to FACT instead.

To be honest, i've had enough of the constant hassle of the For Sale forums, i won't be using it to sell anymore as you can't compete with the several times a day thread bumpers who send your listing down to page 2 or 3 if you follow the rules yourself. I may carry on buying the odd thing but my days of reporting posts are long gone now i'm afraid.

There are too many people on these forums now who are just selfish, i suppose it's just what happens when the forums grow..................so if you can't beat them, join them as they say. :-(

No - can you keep reporting posts. I know a few members have been given temp bans for bumping so we are keeping up on that.

OK, i'll keep reporting for now. :thumbsup:

Maybe i shouldn't come on here when i'm so tired, always end up going off on a rant. :giggle: I just like to see an even playing field for all regardless of rep, posts etc and it gets frustrating to see the same few people continually abusing the system.

I have a photographic memory of things posted on that forum and often report duplicate threads etc that are posted (as i'm sure whoever picks them up can testify to) and it's always the same 2 or 3 people that do it and continue to do so which gets frustrating. :-(

Couldn't agree with you more Syzable, but like you say as its a handful of persistent offenders if we all keep reporting them they will get hopefully get banned from the FS forum.
#23
I can't be ar$ed reporting anymore, although the mods say they all get a copy of the 'report', some kind of auto acknowledgement would be nice. Half the time I think my 'reports' are being ignored because I'm known as a 'troublemaker' with an attitude.

What? Soz you've lost me.:? :? :?
I don't swear on public forums.
#26
Not trying to cause trouble at all, just you've written ar$ed and to$$ in two recent posts and it seems a bit rude/out of character. Obviously I'm mistaken and they are not swear words.

Not swear words but slang words. I've used them before on here. I just think they look better with $$$$$$, Less impact, but says the same.
*WOW, that sounded complicated*.

Fair enough, personally I reckon ****\arsed is a (mild) swear word but I guess its a matter of opinion...
