    All it seems to do for me is send it to public general chat - not somewhere that I'd want to complain about a member only post!

     It should take you to a form that you fill out detailing the reason for logging the post? Should have a drop down box and then a box underneath that you can (if you want) write something in? Dont worry, anything reported via the alert button will only come to us mods, it sends us an email. Try it on this thread

     That worked!  And the reason why is says public general chat, is because that is where the thread is that you were reporting!  If you were reporting a thread in another part of the forum, that would be there header there instead

I sit on my fancy new phone checking in on here all the time too mostly in my pj's. Lol. Its one of those android phones, don't know how to use it properly yet.

    No worries SallyAnn. You'll know more about BL than the manager at this rate, if you keep finding all this old stuff.
