    How do you report spam?

    First of all, I want to say the lovely moderators do a great job of handling spam quickly, so this isn't a complaint! But as I'm in the UK I guess I'm "ahead" of the wake up times of most folks, and recently I've been seeing more spam. Is there a way to "flag" this so it gets the attention of the moderate team ASAP? I know with Discourse forums if enough people flag something as spam, it gets hidden from the other visitors until it's been handled by the moderators/admin, and I don't know if vBulletin has that feature.

    Thanks RosemaryOrchard we're all doing our best, but the sneaky spammers do sneak.

    At the bottom of any post, you should see a string of options - there should be a FLAG right next to the LIKE button... clicking on the FLAG should bring up a message box, where you type in at least 10 characters (ex "I think that this post is spam") to explain and then submit it - that should bring it to our Mod notification
    There is definitely a learning curve on this new version of vBulletin and changes are still happening behind the scenes, but we're making progress

    Let us know if you don't see the 'flag' option and thanks!

      Just an FYI: I'm seeing the quote and like options...no flag. I'm signed in to my forum account and I'm on Safari. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

        I also have no flag on Firefox on a mac.

            No flag for me, either, again on Safari: version 14.0.3 on a mac (running macOS Big Sur version 11.2).

                Thanks! I thought I was going crazy but I definitely checked multiple browsers and assumed I was missing something very obvious 😆

                  I also saw some this morning and couldn’t find a way to report it in so I ignored it...

                    I believe I've fixed this so that, on any posts, you'll all see the "Flag" option right before the "Like" button... of course, let me know if you don't see that option! And thanks for reporting this and for being up for helping us tackle spam
