Sorry to be dim, but I want to report somebody who has sent me abusive PMs.

Can you tell me how I do this as it is different to reporting a post in a thread, thanks.

oooh, I DO WONDER who it could be Sue?

You could click on "report this message" from one of their posts

or try clicking the "email the forum" link at bottom page

I reckon the former will be faster tho

Doubt if you'd guess, I've never heard of them before .....

But I don't want to report their posts, they haven't been publicly abusive (yet).

Can't seem to find something I put on the for sale section last night - a moving fish lamp/light?

I've had 3 pms, the first person didn't show today so will be contacting the next one but can't find the original post.

Thanks.

I think people have tried to help here a number of times vicki08, although she doesn't respond to any of the advice.

You can see an example from me on the bottom of this thread: [www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk]

I don't have an awful lot of sympathy if she doesn't bother to engage people who are willing to help.

Sorry to hear that Sue. What is wrong with some people hiding behind a keyboard? They should really get a life!

No problem with hiding behind a keyboard, it's what they type and to whom that's the issue.

Keyboards are part of life these days, after all.

Anyway I decided life was indeed too short to bother with somebody who's clearly either eaten a swarm of wasps or is two sandwiches short of a picnic.

He or she has probably moved on to insult somebody else.

Dear admin

My friends and I are trying to organise a street party on 2 June - we are all volunteers and are putting substantial amounts of our time and effort into doing this. We get no gain of any kind out of it other than a warm glow from helping people to get together.

We try to advertise this on EDF so that people know when to turn up.
We ask for the loan of gazebos to help keep those people dry.
Both of things are essential and we are trying to use the forum as a community resource to help us get the message out to people.

You move both threads to bits of the forum which get maybe two and a half hits a week. Why?

On the other hand, we could start some kind of artificial argy bargy that incidentally publicises the street party and asks for the loan of gazebos. You'd probably allow us to keep that in the main threads. Doesn't make much sense to me.
Could you possibly move our gazebo request at least back to the main drag?

thanks

Posted by StraferJack 17 May, 2013 12:30

You do know why there is a wanted section and a whats on section don't you?

Appreciate you are doing something off your own back but you want something and you are organising something that's on.

136 views for the "gazebo wanted" thread in 2 days is rather different to your "2 and a half hits a week. "

The whats on post has nearly 500 views - that is no small amount

If I was admin I would find the tone of your post in here a bit pissy (no matter how much I support what you are doing)

150-odd views of 'gazebo wanted' by now, but no gazebos on offer - clearly the EDF is not read by people with gazebos.
Lost cats, yes, dodgy plumbers, yes, but no gazebos.

I am also puzzled. Can you please un-puzzle me.
I thought I'd posted this in a section which said 'Ask Admin'. I get a reply from you. Are you Admin?

messageRe: Ask Admin
Posted by StraferJack 17 May, 2013 20:27

Sure

Admin is increasingly busy and if you are waiting for him to answer you could be waiting a long time. I replied because I'm a nosy ex admin assistant an thought your post was pitched in a way unlikely to elicit sympathy

I can't help with the lack of local gazebo action but I hope the event goes well (and you get the weather)

Is there a reason why my pretty straight forward posting, as to why Southwark Council issued an enforcement notice for removal of one of the mushrooms in the art festival, was removed from the forum.
Are you now subject to censorship by the Council?

messageRe: Ask Admin
Posted by StraferJack 22 May, 2013 19:07

It hasn't been removed. It has been move tho. To the lounge. Not sure why

Perhaps because it is not ED specific as you've mentioned Southwark as a whole.

messageRe: Ask Admin
Posted by StraferJack 23 May, 2013 09:55

it does go on to specify LL mushroom instance tho...

Two days ago I reported duplicate posts as they used a poster's real name and gave other personal details about him. Neither have been edited or removed. Is EDF policy not to deal with posts like this, as that makes me very wary of using the site.

messageRe: Ask Admin
Posted by mockney piers 18 June, 2013 08:45

The moderators have recently been inundated with reported posts, we'll do our best to get to them but we're a little short staffed these days.
Pm me if you like and I'll deal with them.

Sorry it's my fault. I've just changed phones and I thought that the "reported emails hotline" emails were being sent to it, but I hadn't set up the correct account. I'm back on the case now.

Time to reset the server clock? It's been way behind actual time for a while now -- currently by thirteen and a half minutes. Do you not do a regular (auto-)sync with a time server? Any possibility that the CMOS cell is running a bit low and needs replacing?

Did your page have an ED trading address listed on it? That's a regular reason that posts get taken down and your phone number suggests the business isn't ED based.

It's been mentioned a couple of times on the forum now but I haven't noticed a response from Admin so is the new Defamation Act (since it makes specific provision for website operators) going to make any difference around here?

[www.legislation.gov.uk]

messageRe: Ask Admin
Posted by Administrator 23 January, 2014 12:51

I've not really looked into it but as long as we act accordingly i.e. take down anything that we are made aware of that is obviously defamatory, and/or comply with the authorities requests as soon as we can, then we should be fine.

So no, I don't think it'll make a difference round here. The onus is on the individuals to stay within the law and I don't want them using the forum as a tool to 'anonymously' break the law.

In the context of certain local businesses being untouchable and others not...? You have to admit there has been somewhat preferential treatment for those who decided to kick up a legal fuss...
