I've been using the report button when I see a spam. Those do get through to you mods, right? I haven't been getting any notifications on that, even when I've pressed the "notify me" button. If those aren't working, should I just go back to PMing the last mod who was online? :)

Nope, we see them, Snipe. I'm not sure how the reporting thing actually works, to be honest. When I see a reported post, I just go to the thread it was created in or the actual thread, lock it up, and move it away from sight. I don't know why you aren't notified that the report was viewed or dismissed, but I can check to see how to better work the report feature so that you are notified. :)

But do know that we see the reports, and usually are right on top of taking care of them!

Well, as long as I know you're seeing the reports, it's all good, so don't worry about the notification thing. I'll just turn it off. It'd probably fill up my email account anyways. 8D :wink:

Yeah, we see the reports and react to those. That's enough to get our attention.

That was because the sign up process was a little complicated. Spammers had no chances of getting past it.

When reporting spam topics should we use the "The reported message has the only purpose to advertise for a website or other product" selection or the "The reported message does not fit into any other category, please use the further information field" one?
For now I've been using the 'other' category but seeing as most of them are advertising illegal TV websites should I be using the first one?

It honestly doesn't matter which one you choose, because what happens is all we see is the report icon, so we go to the page and lock/move/delete the topic. All the report feature really does on our end is visually notify us of a spam thread. However, if it were a specific post we would go to check and see what the post was and deal with it from there.
