The real problem is that accounts like mine seem to be borked. You can flag those posts as much as you want to. I don't get notifications about it. Seems to be different for other mods though...
So... is there any way the kind folks at Opera ASA can look into matters to rectify that, sooner rather than later? Perhaps even going so far as to create a new account for you, if needed? Right now, the spam has been piling up in the Opera Windows forum, and I don't think the spammers have any plans to lighten up in the foreseeable future...
Or perhaps we need to re-start the Spam Report thread: https://forums.opera.com/topic/976/report-spam-posts
I'm not quite sure what this has to do with Forum feedback, but look here -
It's probably being cause by the new sidebar, which you can suppress with a user.css.
Worked for me anyway!
'Flag this!' button is not displayed with Opera Mini,, for a short while it was present with mini6.0 and reload the page without any effect so why this popup form (over+lightbox?) is not functional? . Also quote button is pro forma and I don't see how should work as copy-paste function (opera mini).
Yeah, I realised the flagging function was now working after reading someone's post in this thread. But I had already posted the spam link here and didn't want to leave a blank post by editing it out.
Yep, you could say that this topic is now pretty much redundant.
Also, when the forums try to linkify a plain text link, "(" and ")" in the link must be escaped with a backslash or you get:
http://www.example.com/some file ( M2 ).mhtml
However, reddit's markdown handling doesn't require you to do that. Neither does stackoverflow's. They know the( and ) in this case are part of the URL, especially since there's no use of the () syntax in this case.
But, even with the () syntax, stackoverflow knows the ( and ) inside the URL itself are part of the URL and not a delimiter/opener/closer for the link syntax.
Stackoverflow's and Reddit's handling just seems to be more robust.
Stackoverflow uses the StackEdit editor that uses the pagedown markdown converter. They're both open source.
