In one of my reports on a post, I was replied to by PWE in which they told me that they are working on restoring the "Report Post" feature. They did not give an ETA though. In the mean time, I've been just going to the offender's Core Connect page, reporting them there, choosing "Nudity or Profanity" and then linking to or explaining my reasoning for the report.
Just wanted to touch base here and relay some information.
Branflakes is indeed working with the web teams to get a report post function back into the STO forums, apparently there are some hurdles there with it though.
In the meantime you can of course use the links in the community manager and moderator's posts to send through anything you see. As somebody pointed out this has some problems on Chrome (I intermittently get these too) so while I'd like to suggest a different browser - I won't, I hate moving off Chrome too
So what should you do if you can't use these options? There's no easy option, you could PM a Community Moderator but I don't suggest this as some of us erase our PM's without reading (we're both advised and choose to do this because we often get hateful replies to warnings etc) and IF you chose to do this making sure the subject makes it clear it's a reported post. Though as I say, I don't recommend this.
I have my Twitter in my sig, that's a good way to get me - just slam me a link over there and hashtag it with #STOForum so I know what it is rather than some Viagra link
In the meantime rest assured that the community team is pretty much on top of most of it, if you could see the list of posts that we catch each day you might be surprised, and of course follow the golden rule - don't feed the trolls

Hmm, maybe it's time for me to come back here and ask: In that one month since I last asked, has there been any progress on that "quite a number of items on that list being worked on" that you checked daily, BranFlakes?
Now that I think about it, maybe I should have waited with this post till Tuesday. Hopefully it won't get lost in the meantime...
Btw, it was a brilliant idea to put this thread in my signature, it indeed keeps reminding me. (And if my signature magically changes, I will notice.)

I'm not sure if this is on the list, but it seems the User CP/Subscription doesn't maintain my New Posts the way the old Forums did. On the old Forums I could be gone for a week or two, come back and see in my User CP/Sub screen all the threads with unread posts bolded and at the top.
It was clear, what I missed, and I could click on a button to take me to the first unread post in each thread.
I don't waste much time with STO anymore, don't play much. But I guess I still hold out hope that there will be some improvement some day, so I do check back from time-to-time, and I've really noticed that the new forums don't do this kind of Sub tracking. It seems to only keep track of the very newest posts, even to skipping other unread posts...
For example, let's say I read a whole thread on a Friday, all 20 posts. I come back later that day and see there's been an update, I click, and I go to post 21. That seems fine.
But say now, over the weekend there are 10 more posts, but I don't come back until Monday. Sometimes my Sub list will show the latest post was on Monday, but the whole thing isn't bolded, and/or I click on "go to first unread" and I get taken to post 25, instead of post 22.
Basically the Sub feature that keeps track of where we are in a thread, doesn't work.

I really miss the old web page. I loved being able to see which of my friends were online, and check my in game mail without going in game. It was also cool being able to look up the info on other players. This newer layout while looking good, is a poor shadow in comparison.
