Anyone interested in having this feature?

Blaine mentioned it wasn't on his list and wondered if it would be a worthwhile project. Who else thinks this could be beneficial? Thanks.

I've seen this on a couple of other sites where there is an Alert Button at the bottom of each and every forum post. Ideally when a user comes across a post in question, they would click that button and it sends that particular URL to the Admin and also shows the Admin who sent the Alert so that people doing it just for kicks can get notified that they're about to be banned for abuse. Is something like this possible with Geeklog?

It is interesting. Doesn't seem to be difficult to do.

what would the alert be alerting the admin to? spam or something like that?
...should be limited to members anyway and enable/disabled via admin panel. Just my two cents

FWIW, Geeklog already has something like that for comments (and this thread is over a year old ...).

bye, Dirk

Yes, exactly that. Spam, Flame Wars, etc and only for Registered Members to have access too and a bonus feature would be to have the Username recognized that sends off the alert email to Admin to keep the abuse of that feature to a bare minimum.

Thanks
