^^^^^^ This

Good question boothy.
I'm pretty sure that 3 full power members spamming a thread doesn't do anything but I haven't checked that via MSN or PM!!

Also there's been no feedback that I've noticed re the inability to both spam and report - you have to choose between one or the other - disfunctionality on a variety of levels!

The report button was working the other day.

Wow... strong clique suspicion!!



some guy had posted up the same thread THREE days in a row about what to buy for a flatmate leaving and myself, Lottysdad, Numtpyj and some other poster all said we had spammed it - but never went

This should be fixed now hopefully- give it a whirl

why doesnt the spam have a box for a reason to be given, so we still have to report the thread, then spam it, great improvement

The spam and report buttons work fine. You didn't have to give a reason when clicking the spam button previously and neither do you now as long as you're spamming a thread for the right reasons.

you are right you didnt have to give a reason to spam, but we where asked to post within thread with reason for spamming and if not to report the thread with the reason, surely with the "new updated forum" adding a reason on the spam button would have made sense

Quite so. The sequence for duplicates was clearly to make a mention in the thread ( although I stopped doing that as the thread was usually gone before the OP would have time to see it) to spam and to report, with the detail of the duplicated thread so that it would be obvious to the mod why the thread was spammed.

If there is no report how would a mod know if the spamming is for the right reasons??? Could a serial spammer be infracted or suspended by a mod who is unaware that the reasons are 'right' or that the advice has changed???

There was no "get out" for incorrectly spamming a thread by reporting it before you spammed, so no more people will be infracted now than before.
Put the reason for spamnation in the thread, and spam.

The reason I leave when spamming thesaints thread is "Don't like OP" :P

That's not what I was implying.
My points were that I had stopped explaining to the OP in the thread because the thread disappeared, taking my comment with it.
Emma had said very clearly that you should report and spam so that is what I did.
I know that if you give a reason which is 'wrong' and then spam that it will not save you from dire retribution , but at least it explains your side of things and you may get the benefit of the doubt and just be told off rather than banned for ever ( hyperbole!)
If you spam and there is no report or apparent reason then that makes more work for a mod if they want to determine if you have been wicked, by reading through the thread or seeing if it's a duplicate or whatever. Much more straight forwards for them to actually know the reason. I would think that with no reason they will simple assume e.g. it's a duplicate so the system is open to abuse, if the real reason is 'I hate sausages'. (humorous example)

Also, 'sensa ragioni' if you have effected a series of spams, then it looks like you are just in a bad mood and need a cooling off perioid.

We have always been told to write the reason as the last comment before we SPAM it.

Are you saying we now dont need to do that?

For those that are in doubt, read the thread that a well respected senior member of HUKD wrote "way back when". Read post number 1:

Spam and Expire



Members want to moan for the sake of moaning methinks.

I did not say you no longer need to leave a reason. I'm saying when you spammed a thread previously, it did not give you a comment box, did it??

You commented in the thread. You hit the spam or expire button. Job done..

Now you still do that. You comment in the thread. You hit the relevant button

Sorry, commenting is no longer available on this feedback.
