If I find advertising spam in my inbox or as a forum post, how do I report it? I can't find an option for that. Even now, there are two posts here in this forum that are spam and I saw no way to report them.

Help us help you keep the forum and client clean of spammers.

Forum spam we have to leave to the mods....


As for inbox spam, in the client in box, there is a 'safety' link at the bottom of the message...click on that and it will report it to CS.

The forum inbox doesn't have a flagging option, but you can always file a help ticket to report it...

Thanks! It helps just knowing what we can and can't do to help keep IMVU spam-free, as well as how to do it.

This really does need to be fixed. Not just for the spam issue but for the inappropriate messages as well. Forum inboxes do really leave us a bit exposed. People know that many users won't report because it is not easy to do so.

In times past I generally filed a help ticket giving the avatar name , the date it was sent and copied the message to CS.
