Currently, reporting spam involves a few steps, namely click "report" and then selections between different options in a scroll-down menu. No big deal. But there is lots of spam to report, and reporting spam occurs much more frequently than reporting anything else. Therefore it would be very convenient if a button was added beneath forum posts to "report as spam."
I'd have to agree with you there.
The only thing that may worry me about an implementation of this idea is that if the button is easily clickable, there'll be a lot more 'accidental' clicks, causing more work for the HP team. I could be wrong though, so otherwise, great idea.
Thanks for your feedback WryLilt and Ohma. I envisage there would still be a prompt to confirm prior to posting and the option to leave comments to staff, so accidental clicks should not be too much of a problem.
I'm 100% for it then.
I have seen a few new people wanting to report things but not realizing that you needed to press 'more' to do so.
Right now it takes three clicks to report spam: one to hit the report button, one to select the spam designation and one to submit the report.
What you are proposing would also take three clicks: one to hit the report button, one to confirm the report and one to submit.
As this does not change the efficiency of the process, I feel there's no reason for the admin team to spend time on this versus the present system.
Not really. Confirming and submitting happens in one and the same click. People will see a notice and be given the opportunity to add comments prior to clicking "submit." One click less (no scrolling down) would make this easier and faster than now. Even if a check-box were added to confirm, it would still be an improvement.
Well I certainly would like one as I had a look at the answers section and someone has posted the same question about half a dozen times for no apparent reason.
I just had 20 messages to one of my hubs ,also notified via email and read like a bunch of text messages between teens,however they all came from one I.P.
Looks like they hijacked my hub -so annoying and Im really grateful we, the published has the option of deny/ delete etcbutton!!

I think hubbers should be able to flag spam on the forums. I'm not sure if there is an option to do this already but I think it would be good. Even though there is not too much spam, keeping HP forums spam free 99% with the help of actual hubbers will go along way. I feel as though the report...

I know when we come across a hub or question (in the "answers" section) we feel violates some rule established by HP, we can click on the little flag so that HP can check it and possibly remove it. However, I can't find anything similar in the forums. I found a questionable post earlier...

Hi folks. I use the AdSense direct implementation, rather than the HP earnings program on HubPages. Over the last couple of days I have noticed that the number of clicks and my earnings have increased very dramatically (5 to 10 times).Having reviewed my account on AdSense and looking at the Google...

If you report or flag a hub or question, is it anonymous, or does the person know who did the reporting or flagging?It would be a shame to have a retribution war started....
