Spam reports not followed up in obscure forums

I have reported spam in the very little used PostScript forum, and nothing has happened. Reports in other forums are generally acted on promptly. Does it depend on moderators happening to visit a particular forum?

Can non-moderators Mark as Spam?

By @Nancy OShea

 

No, only moderators can mark content as spam.

I believe @Test Screen Name is probably using the "Report" button. Reporting notifies and employee moderator; there's no immediate action after reporting something.

I just removed quite a bit of Spam, no problem.  You sometimes have to go back to Overview page and hit Refresh (Ctrl+F5) to see that it's been removed.

 

I will add that PostScript should be locked and made READ ONLY.  It's become a spam trap and potential black hole for other product questions that don't belong there.

i thought it was automatic: mark a post spam and it's gone.  no one else checks or needs to do anything to see thta result.

moderators just do nothing, at least in Photoshop community

I even doubt they exist...LOL 🙂 there's always such a mess there...

not only with spam, but the topics (posting in wrong sections, long & uncertain titles, multiple topics on the same issue/idea, etc.)
