    I like the way the forums, are linked into the comments from news/newsblog posts. Yet if there was some kind of symbol that indicated when a thread was linked to a story rather than an indepentant forum post, it would be easier to browse.

    Another little problemis there is no 'report thread' feature, which explains why there are some advert type post littering the forums.

    That's a good suggestion about marking a difference between discussions depending on where they originate. We'll bear it in mind as we keep looking at how to improve the Community site. So thanks for your feedback--and keep the comments coming in.

    Reporting dodgy posts throughout the site is also something we're putting our mind to. For now, anyone who sees a Forum entry that they think is inappropriate can send a message to me, either via internal Community messaging or at Community.manager@zdnet.co.uk.
