Quoting BeateR

We did Safaris in all of southeast Africa, twice in Tansania. But every time we did it by our own. We rented a 4x4 with roof tent and drove ourselfes. Its no problem and much cheaper.

Thanks for the info. I thought about the possibility to take part in the safari of such type, but there were a lot of doubts. No, I am sure it is better to try first.

Just to make certain, as 'Miriam' has edited their post:
You saw MiriamKeating quoting your post, and inside that post was additional text (and a link?) to something called "Altezza", correct?
If so, that's a common spammer tactic, hoping that by inserting their spam link inside a quote of text from a more established member, it won't get any scrutiny.

You're not yet established enough to have any reporting tools available for this, but I am. :)

FWIW, I just reported RhodesLarry as well for doing this; that one even changed an existing link from inside a quote to make it even harder to spot. Luckily moderators have tools that make these link changes rather obvious. So, spammer, since you're actually reading along: go bother other forums; this one is too heavily guarded to be worth your while.

Sander, thank you so much.

So it is right if I find something wrong in the forum, for example advertising, I only can write it in a new post?

What is the criteria to get tools to inform the Moderator? I can imagine it is the number of postings? How many are necessary?

It's governed by an algorithm in the back of the software, it weighs various factors so in short we don't know. Because some members are active on the wiki or blogs or photos without making forum posts. But I'd expect you very soon to get the "report" button on top of posts next to "quote".

Thank you Andy, so I have to wait.
And as I'm not activ on Wiko oder Blogs or other social media I think I'll have to wait a long time. :):)
