I 'logged' one of DFs posts by mistake (fat fingers on my iPad). Tried to unclog it, but think it might have logged again. Sorry. Didn't mean it.

It means I reported your post, I think. I think it logs your ip with the admins.
See below text box.

At the bottom of the text box it says 'report to moderator' and 'logged'. I pressed. I think this sends a report to admin that I think your post was inappropriate in some way. Obviously I don't think anything of the sort. I was just fat finger typing. Sorry.

Hmmm I have been doing this repeatedly, but didn't think to mention it! TBH I had no idea what was "logged"... hope I've not flagged random things for no reason!

It will only create a report if you hit the little orange report button, fill out the form detailing why you're reporting, and hit send. So I trust your fingers didn't manage to go that far! We haven't received any reports.

"Logged" is just a reminder that your IP has been logged when you make a post. From my admin view, I get to see all your IP addresses in that space instead, so I can tell where you are located (and if you were to do anything illegal, for example, this is the information that the police could use to find you!) But only I can see that, normal members just see "logged" as a reminder that the post IP has been logged.

I was curious to see what 'logged' meant and when I click on it, saw
