Did anybody notice the 3 post in not sure but Chinese language? Did someone hack into the forum ?
It's spam. One of the reasons the Mollum spam filter on the Tesla forums is being discontinued. Actual spam it misses.
Only time I've used my "Flag as Inappropriate" link. Flagged the multiple copies of it on T3 and General forums. When enough people do, it will disappear.
On well run forum there is an actual person who gets the flags and makes intelligent decisions, in this case not only deleting the spam but in flagging the "user" and/or the IP address from further posts.
Hacking would be if someone got the Tesla Forum admin password and made changes.
Flagging is reserved for owners. Not trolls who do not own a Tesla.
KP in NPT "Flagging is reserved for owners"
Apparently we T3 depositors get the link also. Similar to the additional choices when starting new topics.
Above link is based on "Flagging" your comment...which I didn't do, just showing you the link is available to me.
that link doesn't work. And you are lying. Model 3 depositors do not have flagging ability, as every non owner depositor here will confirm.
"FLHX13 | May 27, 2017 Troll^ Unflag this item"
Now yours I did flag.
Wow, you can type!
It sounds like some T3 depositors don't have the "Flag as Inappropriate" link.
Prove it. Disappear me.
@KP in NPT "That link doesn't work"
You can't flag your own messages so it that link, which is the "Copy Link" result I get on your message above, likely won't work for you.
As you know, you don't see the "Flag as Inappropriate" link on your own messages.
@FLHX13 "Prove it. Disappear me."
That's not how the Mollum spam filter works. It takes a number of people flagging for the automated software to kick in. One of the reasons the Mollum software is being discontinued is that this feature is a subject to abuse by hacker gangs on forums.
"Flagging count has been incremented" is the message we get when clicking the "Flag as Inappropriate".
Untrue. You know it. Back to TMC now where you are banned.
Yikes...you don't have the "Flag as Inappropriate" option. Are you not a T3 depositor?
I'm back. You got me on that one. I'm not a T3 depositor. I admit it.
I did however 'Reserve' a Model 3.
Interesting. You say you are T3 depositor but don't see the red "Flag as inappropriate" link at the bottom right corner of every message or topic except those you post.
Interesting new tack there, E. I don't think it's any more attractive than your other ones.
@Frank99 "Interesting new tack there, E."
But you don't say what it is your are imagining.
I'm just noting that FLHX13 says he has put down a deposit but doesn't see the "Flag as inappropriate" link in messages while I do. I joined the forum when I got the link from Tesla for "My Tesla" which included an invitation to visit the forums. It hinted that Tesla provided company information in the forums and I assumed it was owners and depositors only forum.
I wonder if someone joined the forums from the "front page" vs. via the depositor invite from Tesla and they don't see the "owners" tools as their forum sign up was not associated with their deposit/reservation.
Frank99, Right on man.
I challenge EPDX to use his incredible search skills and find an official Tesla link indicating a T3, or any T model, in production!
Sad E really sad:(
@KP in NPT "that link doesn't work."
Since that was the link to flag your own message which I guess doesn't work for you on your own message, try this link which is what I get with "Copy Link" on the "Flag as Inappropriate" from FLHZ13's message.
Easy way to prove it EaglesPDX - start a private thread. Until I see a private thread from you, I will call BS. If you do submit a private thread, you can even title it, Testing private thread, then I will come back here and acknowledge I was wrong.
The choice is yours.
I think that it now goes in the direction of - he will only do it for $10000
Dang...wish I'd known that minute ago. Let me know when I can delete it.
Be careful with the link above as it will in fact Flag FLHX's post.
Never saw it. Did you delete it, or did it get flagged, either way, still waiting to say I was wrong, or BS.
Well lilbean saw it but said it wasn't private. So I deleted it.
But the proof for the "Flag as Inappropriate" is the link above which will Flag FLXH's message if you click on it. I wonder if it also works for people who don't have the "Flag" access?
But all moot points as all part of Mollum which is being discontinued along with the "Flags".
If the link omits, you must admit.
None of the links above you gave worked for me, hence why i asked for a private thread. It gives me a broken link. Private thread is the only way to prove you have owner abilities.
This is what your link says:
Bad token. You seem to have followed an invalid link.
"FLHX13 | May 27, 2017 Frank99, Right on man. "Unflag this item"
Interesting as when I click on it, it "flags" and "unflags" the message above. I guess its somehow tied to each user with the power to "flag" otherwise you could make the "FAS" public as above and anyone could click on it.
Spam, spam, spam...
See what becomes of spam...
When I look around...
At all of the FUDsters and trolls...
It gets so hard to believe...
Here's the html of the link.
Sorry, no way to prove it unless you post private thread. (unless you can take a screen shot showing my comment here flagged, and you typing in the comment box - see, I can flag.
Upload the screenshot to imgur.com, and post the link to imgur so we can see it.
If can't do either of the two, then we call BS.
Whoops...guess you have to look at it in "Inspect Elements"
Nope, still says Bad token. You seem to have followed an invalid link.
Look around, it may be brown...
Watch your feet, there's a patch of poo on the ground.
Cleanup on Aisle One! And... Please do not click links offered by pigeons.
So do a "Copy Link" of the "Flag as Inappropriate" for the same message, I should get the same error message as you get on the "Copy Link" of my version.
FLHX13 | May 27, 2017
Frank99, Right on man.
There are already private threads going that pigeon is not contributing to. He can prove himself by posting on those.
Ah so it does prove you wrong. Interesting...sort of.
Guess what, i just bumped a private thread, it says private in the topic title. tell me what the title is, and I believe you. If not, you prove yourself a liar, go ahead, make my day.
I don't see any "Private" topics, must the "Flag as Inappropriate" as noted above. interesting that FLHX does't even see that.
Hopefully when Mollum goes away in a few months, Tesla will upgrade the forum. Get rid of the Private, always pointless on a public forum especially a company forum.
Also add a real moderator, restore a civility and utility to the forums.
But do post the "Copy Link" of the "Flag as Inappropriate" per the above. Be interesting to see if others get the error code you do when accessing it.
And there you go people, Eagles does not have "Privileges" as he says he does.
I even gave an option for him to create a screnshot of him flagging one of my post and posting it, not able to do it, hence still a deceiver.
Actually it looks like "Flag" has been turned on for everyone. Question is, does anyone NOT have it as an option.
Mollum, the forum spam filter, is no longer supported so it may be going haywire. I didn't 't used to see the "Private" and NA, Private, Public when posting a new message and now that has started to show up.
On the sudden appearance of the prolific Red etc coinciding with the SamO absence, looks like SamO was locked out, created a new login and then the lock out was lifted leaving him with two persona. I see SamO's posting under both know.
Red is not SamO you idiot. It's Red Sage.
The closest I ever lived to Santa Monica was probably Woodland Hills. At the time, I worked for an ecommerce company that was in Santa Monica, though.
