Flagging inappropriate sit postings

I would love if there was a way to flag/report a sit directly from the HO’s posting. I know that we can separately e-mail THS if we see a sit that violates rules (e.g. not wanting the sitter to stay overnight). However, it would be much easier if there was a “Report this” button on the listing, similar to what is available on Facebook posts and other social media platforms. Screenshot (60)|482x499


One listed recently (Today) in Moscow, which looks special, lovely apartment, 3 weeks but

" We request to have a cat sitter sitting for our lovely cat while we are away, not able for the sitter to stay in the apartment. "

@Angela-CommunityManager @Vanessa-Admin


That is the post that triggered my comment! I’ve reported others where the HOs have lodgers or other people staying at the house during the sit.


Angela has mentioned recently that if you direct message her with a link she will get follow up done. I realize that wasn’t your original comment, but I just thought I’d mention it.

I’m going to add @Ben-ProductManager here, as he may be the appropriate person to address website modifications.

@Snowbird @Petermac @Lassie Hi all… This has already been referred by direct message and I have passed the sit over to membership services for them to check it out. Thanks for bringing to our attention.

You can notify Angela or myself by direct message if you see a problematic sit and now that we have a dedicated membership services person on the forum team, @Therese-Moderator can also be tagged to help.

Thanks again for spotting!

@snowbird @Petermac @Lassie @Vanessa-Admin Just to confirm I have emailed the homeowner so she will either adjust her listing for the sitter to stay in their home, or we will remove it. Thank you for the heads up!


just saw this posting which already has 12-15 applicants and states that there is another occupant in the flat.

Hi @travellingnomad - thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will be emailing the homeowner now. Kind regards Therese

Just reported a shocking listing!!

Send via a private message on the forum to membership services!!

Can’t write the specifics here as been advised can’t identify the sits that are reported on the forum, in case the HO themselves see’s that their sit has been reported / discussed on here but WOW!!

Some people really are unbelievable!!

I just saw one that made me really sad from someone with a disability. Obviously not going to report it as it just looks like they really need some assistance in their home but really think they will struggle to get any applicants :frowning:

I thought all sits would be vetted before being listed as live on the site!
I also have no idea how big or small the TH admin team is. I just thought they would have to be vetted for inappropriate content & images as a given. Does no one check the listings before they go live?

THS says that they review all new listings, but that some fall through the cracks. I see so many listings that have no prior sitters (so I assume they are new) that violate THS rules that I don’t think their vetting process is very thorough.

Even if a listing is vetted before the first listing, HOs can change it later. THS does not review changes made to an existing listing.
