Reporting Spam
Hi peeps - how do we go about reporting spam forum posts that may have been missed, or flagging accounts for Mod investigation etc?

I ask as I just found this:
http://community.videogamer.com/foru...he_dark_world/

...and as a longtime Forum Moderator and Community Manager since around 2003 for various sites, I didn't notice anything particularly obvious on the thread in question or the profile of that account to flag it up.

That being said, i'm still learning the quirks of this BBS and site, so go easy on me if it's been staring me in the bloody face! Wink

BTW what happened to the report spam button? I always used to use that and write silly messages...
