    Report post icon should be changed

    This icon: is what is used for the report post button. It isn't very clear to users what this does, nor is it clear that it is a clickable icon.

    It looks more like a feature to add a user to an address book...especially since it is next to the users online status.

    I don't know if this is possible but a text link in the top right of each post, next to the post number would be intuitive.

    It currently is not very obvious what it does or where it is

    jenkinbr edited the "report post" icon, in some other thread, to have it be more obvious. If anything, they should just use his.

    Given that vBulletin is proprietary software, it may be impossible to change the report icon.

    It's propretary, but once it is purchased, the developers have 100% access to the source. It is possible.

    They do have the source code.
    Even without the source they just have to change the gif file...no code modifications are required.

    Do you really think that vBulletin has a brown coffee centered theme by default?
    If nothing else it would stand out
