Just a quick question, would it be possible to have a spam button for photos....... especially for tourist companies, though they're not showing up under a country profile as they wouldn't be featured they do appear on the main page because often the companies post a comment.................

On a similar note, this morning I had to remove an unwanted comment from one of my photos, so it would be nice if comments could be reported as spam perhaps too (although it doesn't seem to happen very often - today was the first time I have had to remove a comment).

Photo comments can already be reported as spam (always been possible too :) ). The REPORT link at top right corner of the comment will report it. The owner of each photo can also delete comments if I'm not mistaken.

Reporting a photo is possible, but it's not really documented anywhere (and no link exists). You can report any page (like a photo page), but adding it behind this link: http://www.travellerspoint.com/report.cfm?link=

So if I wanted to report this pesky bugger, the link would be http://www.travellerspoint.com/report.cfm?link=http://www.travellerspoint.com/member_profile.cfm?user=dr.pepper, or this as a clickable link. If you report a profile one of us will check everything for that user (photos/comments etc.).

Would adding a link on the profile page for full members and above like in the forums would be enough? That way you could technically just report the user and not worry about each forum post either... (although they wouldn't be marked, at least you're ensured they'd be checked).

Thanks Sam !! I was being blinded yesterday by the dutch win, well thats my excuse for not seeing the report button for the comments and thank you for the link to flag the profile as possibel spam, i saw that some of the latest spammers aren't creating new posts but instead adding to other posts which means that they don't always get flagged as quick..........

the little magic button to report them would be great !!!
