    Yes.
    Please PM any of the staff with the message, and the name of the sender.

    EDIT: I've edited your thread title to make it easier for other people having this problem to find, and moved it to site discussions.
    Thank you for your assistance.

    Does Pmed rom requests from new members count as spam.

    Just report them to someone in green and they'll warn or suspend them. I used to spambot the new ones [​IMG]

    The boys in blue can warn and suspend now by the way. Partly because we are uber awesome, and partly because Costello cant be bothered to fix the bug. [​IMG]

    Would be nice to have a report button on PM's, so the mods can deal with in it the same fashion as posts. Otherwise you have to pick a member of staff to forward the message to.

    Yeah, I thought that would've been good ages ago when I had a spam PM. Didn't get any this time though.

    Unless i'm stupid and haven't looked hard enough, What really surprises me is there's no option on here to turn off PM's.

    Under the PB Block list you have the option of selecting "Yes" for "Allow this member to message you?" and it comes up as "Message Allow" for that user in the list.

    Is there no way to block those who aren't on your list or added as a friend from messaging you? seems a little silly not to have that option to me... especially as there's already an option to explictly allow someone, and you have the friend lists.
