Flag Posts or Users
If you think a post or user profile contains inappropriate content, you can flag it to the administrator:
To flag a post: On a post thumbnail or from a post, click > Flag as Inappropriate.

Here is what happens when a post or user profile is flagged:
JMP administrators determine whether the post or user profile should be hidden or removed.
If the post is hidden or removed, the owner of the flagged post or the flagged user is notified (if they have not turned off notifications for flags). For hidden posts, the owner can attempt to fix the problem and let the administrator know. The administrator can then reinstate the post if they approve.

In JMP Public, you are notified when any of these things happen:
someone new starts following you
someone requests to join a closed group that you are an administrator of
someone flags a post that you created or flags your user profile

Click a notification to take you to its source. For example, if someone started following you, their user profile opens. If you receive a request to join a closed group, the group opens.

Click Mark All as Read to turn them from gray (not read) to white (read) and remove the notification number flag.
Click Clear All to clear all notifications.
