Bug: spam flag

Travel Forums System Talk Bug: spam flag

1. Posted by bentivogli (Travel Guru 2398 posts) 7y

Maybe it has always been like this, and this is just the first time I noted, but:

This thread has been flagged as spam; the text is hidden. However, if I hit 'post reply', I can see the text of the flagged post again at the top of my screen?!

I'm pretty sure it's always been like that. It's like a little secret way to see flagged content if you really really want to :) Only the most active users know about it. Ssshhh, it's a secret

Yes and no.
Ok, before you think I am schizofrenic, what I mean is that sometimes you see the text, sometimes you don't.
I don't get it, but that's just the way it is.

As far as I know, it's always been possible, and that's how I check the content of a flagged post if it's not within the forums I am assigned to. Actually, I click on Quote, which is slightly faster because I don't have to look for the post below it.

Mike, could it be possible that the post had just been deleted when you try to view it on the reply? Also, remember that the posts shown in the reply page is limited to the latest 10, so if the flagged post is way before that, you won't see it. (part of the reason why I use the Quote to see it)

I don't really recall it wether or not it had been removed (the promo part I mean) but even the normal text was not visible back then.
For example, the one about the 10 pound flight to Australia: not visible to me when I click 'reply'. Before it was (months ago).

Ah, so at least I learnt something today :)

I've noticed the "capability" happening on and off. Peter uploaded a fix for it back on December 30, 2008.

See third post:

I know for awhile the "reply" sneak peak wasn't working. But, now ever so often, it does again.

Ah... yeah... I remember something about Pete 'fixing' stuff, but wasn't sure and was too busy to look it up. Plus, I've always used the Quote to see it, so didn't experience that on/off.

Thanks Hien!

Give away the other super secret option so that will get "fixed" too. (Kinda like neutering your pet - all their fun in life comes down to chasing rubber balls and playing tug of war. Or, for cat, just more sleep.)
