PM Flagging: A how-to guide
We have a cool new feature for your inbox called PM Flagging!
Help us help you. We would like to rid your inbox of spam, scams, porn and other PMs that don’t abide by our rules. Now with PM Flagging, you can help us identify senders of such messages and alert us to their presence. By flagging a PM, you’ll be “dinging” that member. After too many dings, their future PMs will be automatically sent to spam.
(Don’t worry – PM Flagging doesn’t give us access to the actual contents of PMs. We just see the flags on the back end.)
Here’s how PM Flagging works. The bottom left of each PM has a “Flag this PM/Sender” link.
If you click it, you’ll get a popup, where you’ll select a reason for flagging. (You cannot flag a PM without a reason.)
You can also choose to block the sender in this popup. (You can manage your “Block List” in your My Stuff section.)
Once you’ve clicked “send” to flag a message, the message goes into your Spam folder. All flagged messages, regardless of reason for flagging, go to Spam. Once messages are in Spam, you can delete them with the “Trash Selected” button or move them out of Spam to your Inbox or other mail folders.
That’s it! It’s a pretty simple feature. Using it will help us catch scammers/spammers/creeps and stop them from messaging people.
If you have questions about PM Flagging, please ask the mods in CAM. Thanks!
