    No Spam Button 16th Apr 18 at 1:58 PM
    Just wondering why I never got a spam button when it was brought back.

    I am on Windows 10 and I have tried logging in using various browsers (IE11, Chrome, Firefox) but still no button. I have also tried all three versions of the forum available to me.
    Not saying that I would use it very much but I'm starting to feel a bit left out by not having one

    It doesn't appear on certain sub-forums such as DFW and MFW, but for example I see the Spam button on this forum.

    So you're not alone, Wiz.

    Did you perhaps wear out the button?

    Forum updated but still no spam button for me

    Andrea has visited this thread but only to thank a post that was of no relevance to the problem so I can only assume that nothing is going to be said about the missing button

    Definitely feeling sub-human now.

    A thread went missing on the Old Style board and was looked into then restored within 20 minutes but I can't get any kind of response from the forum team to the spam button being missing

    I have no spam button either.

    It must be related to specific user accounts as I access this site on a Windows 7 PC, a Windows 10 PC and an android mobile. The browser doesn't make any difference either, I've tried Chrome, Firefox and IE.

    tbh I don't think I've ever had a spam button in the year or so I've been a regular poster here.

    Short of creating a new account to see if it is me, my puter, my connection or what, I have given up on this.

    Hi Wizard of Id

    Sorry for the delay replying.

    We removed it for some user groups earlier in the year and also removed it from some forum boards.

    We promise it's nothing personal
    Could you do with a Money Makeover?

    I am left wondering if the reason that I can't see some of the pictures and gifs that other members post is somehow connected to this issue.
    I can see the img code if I quote the image but the actual image still doesn't show. If I take the image code (web address) and put it into a separate browser, the image shows no problem.
    It can be a bit frustrating to scroll through the Loldogs thread and see other people raving about a picture someone has posted but I am unable to see it

    I haven't seen any other reports of image errors on the forum. Have you seen anyone else having the same problem?
