Report!!!
Well, as many of you may already know, there is a very easy system in these forums that allows members to point out a certain problem coming from a topic or post.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is and incredibly easy and simple way of getting a MODS attention.

So please, use it to the best of your ability. It allows mods to be able to patrol the forums faster and better.

Scenario
You are reading the forums and you come across a topic/post that is offensive in any way or that doesn't abide by the RULES.

First Step
Check that the posts is actually offensive or doesn't abide by the RULES.

Second Step
Click on the REPORT button which is beside the KARMA button on the members post. See below

Third Step
Now, put in a definition of what the member has done.
It can be as simple as "spam".

Well, that is you're done.
Well, that is, your part of the job.


Just as an example, I will show you what a MOD has to do once the report gets there.

First
He receives the REPORT.
( I cannot show you this because I haven't got in a recent report. )

Second
He goes into the REPORT panel in the ADMIN board.

https://www.wookie-clan.co.uk/report3.png

And immediately sees there is a report from a member complaining about a personal attack.

Third
He follows the link, and sorts out the problem.

VOILA
The mod has successfully ended the problem without needing to scroll through every topic to find it.
You see how easy it is?

Please, please, PLEASE! remember to use this function
So you do not need to retaliate in ANY way.

DO NOT DARE USE THIS UNLESS YOU NEED TO REPORT SOMETHING, DOING SO WILL GET YOU INTO DEEP TROUBLE.

I am doing this for the people who DO NOT know what this is.
As I have noticed, not many people use it.

I have a suggestion?
Perhaps it might be useful to implement a system wherein if a member logs a report, the mod who deals with it PM's them to let them know HOW it was dealt withand to say "Thank You" for reporting another useless thread or "STFU" for reporting sommat that didn't need reporting?
It needn't be much extra effort, it could be along the lines of the AWM system, and i can say from personal experience that mods like to send those often

yep. I'd do that. I think this is supposed to be a one-way system anyway.

If you find yourself at a disadvantage, use the "Report" button.

Owr, dere dere dere, dats secret stuff dat is.

When I was a commoner, (surf, peasent, bottom-of-the-heap, TMo, call it what you will,) I didn't know it was there either. The greyd outiness of it all kind of gave the impression that it was out of action. Nice to see it's in better colour now.

Since it's not an automated process you'll still find common sense and judgement are used, so you won't be able to use it for your debates and whatnot.

Just a tip: never ever implement some sort of "marked message accuracy" thing. Where if a user reports only posts that obvoiusly break the rules and rarely reports things that needn't be reported, their reports appear higher on the queue. OR at least dont make it public. They did that at GameFAQs for some time and it was a mess.
I reported the thread starter for useless spam.

Take that.
