To the moderator...

Does this forum have a reporting link for easily advising the moderator of
certain posts or spam ?

We've been spammed a lot. The admins usually get rid of it as soon as they can.

Every posting can be reported - there is a button for that: Image.
The Mods and we do delete these postings/users, but we can't be online all the time.

Actually I was online several times and tried to log in to the admin control panel to delete those threads several times, but when I logged in I got a message about Syntax error and never reached the control panel. Was going to PM Daniel about it but it works now.

I still invite people to send me a PM if you see any spam, that way I get an instant email from the forums. Reporting a post only make it more visible when I check out the threads at the forum.

Yes I've fixed that yesterday.

You can click the "Moderator Control Panel" Link there you see all reported postings (if there are any) - as well as you have there some other features.

Indeed, usually when I log on to the forum though I check out the latest posts/newest threads and see the spam quickly by doing that.
