My Power Automate Forum Post Marked as Spam. Please Help! 6-10-2022

I just made a forum post in the Power Automate Building Flows discussion. It was marked as spam about 2 minutes after posting. I reported it to the moderator for review after seeing the spam notification but that method seems backwards.


Can you please help me get my message reviewed and the spam tag removed.


My initial post is regarding making an expression to find daylight savings date ranges in power automate. It is a detailed post with instruction screenshots and I think the system must automatically flag first time posters if their message has too much content.


I made the post to help people so they don't have to struggle like I did. Please don't let my work go to waste 😢😭


Please Review my post linked above and help unmark as spam.

After my initial post was marked as spam it gives me the button option "Marked as spam. If you believe this is an error, submit an abuse report." Abuse Report Link 

The term abuse report is misleading because when I click to make a report it reads as though I am reporting the post as spam.

Report Inappropriate ContentReport Inappropriate Content

I filled it out and clicked Notify Moderator, but I'm afraid it probably just marked my initial post as inappropriate twice. I don't know if that is just so they have it reviewed by someone, but that section needs to be changed so it reads like I am reporting an issue with my own post as opposed to actually reporting inappropriate content.


I'm made a second post asking for help about this in the Get Help with Power Automate>General Power Automate Discussion, but I am afraid that the forum is so busy with flow questions that my forum issue will get stepped on. So I am posting this here in Community Support>Community Feedback hoping to get some resolution.


There are multiple other posts who have had the similar issue. It would be helpful if the Microsoft Account had some method to verify the account or prove it is not a spam bot.

As well as getting my post reviewed can you please answer these questions?

  1. Is there a source list or portal link to find community administrators for issues?
  2. Is the appropriate method for getting resolutions to make separate posts trying to grab attention of someone?
  3. Is there a specific forum to post within for getting issues resolved in a separate forum?
  4. Are their certain tags that should be used for forum help?


I hope others who have this issue are able to find the appropriate people to tag or add correct message tags.

@wskinnermctc  - Thank you for letting us know here in the Community Feedback board.


Your Community Manager for Power Automate is @Jim_iTalent; you can always @mention him if you have any issues with Spam.


I have double checked all of your posts to make sure they are not marked as not spam. The platform scans for spam automatically and we monitor all flagged posts to determine whether or not the content should be unmarked. There are multiple variables the platform scans for and I have no way of knowing exactly what triggered your post to be flagged. Some common trigger items are copy and pasting content in and multiple edits. You should be good to go on this post.


Thanks for being a part of the community!

Excellent! Thank you @heaher_italent  for checking the posts and providing a community manager source. I will be sure to tag Jim if I have any other issues.


Is there a way or source to find who the administrators or Community Manager is for a forum or area?

I am encountering the same problem, Replace and split function not working on a string - Power Platform Community ( made this post a few times but it still gets blocked.


@Vitss, it appears your post is not marked as spam. If you have this issue again, please flag the post and I will get a message about it. Multiple posts of the same content will definitely trigger the spam filter.

Thank you!
