Subject: Report to moderator - Reminder of what it is

Written By: ChuckyG on 02/09/06 at 1:17 pm

The report to moderator link is on every post of the site if you are a member.

If you see something that violates system guidelines (like a personal attack on another member), you should use it to let the moderators know what is wrong.

If you're not following the site rules, and respond with "But so and so does it all the time" do yourself a favor and think back to when you were eight years old.  Did that excuse work then?  It's not going to work now either. 

If you see something that should be reported, don't respond to it.  Otherwise, the moderator usually needs to remove all the followups as well.

WHY???

There are two moderators here, and between the two of us, we do not read even 10% of what is posted to the site anymore.  It is impossible to read 1200+ messages a day, and I doubt anyone would want to.  The report tool is the most valuable way to find out when the rules are not being followed. 

If you were invited to a friend's house and another guest began to urinate on your leg, would you ask the friend to eject that person from the house, or would you respond in kind?  Responding in kind, is not appreciated here.

Just wanted to let y'all know that if I am on the boards, go ahead and PM me to remove or look at posts.

I ask this because Road Runner sometimes takes a minimum of 3 hours before it approves an email come arrive in my inbox. By that time, everyone has gone off on the threads and like Chucky said - results in a ton of posts being removed or the entire thread for that matter.

You can still use the Report To Moderator function as well.

I am now looking at changing my email too!

Thanks everyone! 8)

After you have posted something you can click on the "remove" button.  This deletes the post

It doesn't work on topics you start though.  It used to, but I turned it off to avoid abuse by people who would start a thread, get a bunch of replies and then delete the whole thread because they didn't like it anymore, or to be a jerk, etc.

There's a few things that don't need to be reported to moderators:

~Off topic conversation on a thread. "Threadjacking" is a different matter.
~Out of order answers in any chain/link game/thread
~Broken quotes

Also, while I and the other moderators appreciate PMs, I am not here every day. Responding to reports done that way may take longer than using the report to moderator feature.

If you do send something via PM, please include a URL instead of just a thread name. I don't know where every thread is on the boards.

Everyone has been doing really good as far as getting along and what not. In the few times where tempers flare or there is a communication breakdown, I'd ask the parties involved try to resolve their differences via PM before reporting posts. What usually happens is by the time a moderator gets to the offending post, it and its replies have been edited by the members, and it's difficult to tell what initially transpired.

On an unrelated note, there's no point in creating topics and then immediately locking them.... they will either get merged, unlocked or (most likely) removed.
