RE: Reporting bad threads/posts
From 'Reporting bad threads/posts':
From the report form:
We havent seen many regular users reporting bad threads(spam,trolls,cruft) to the Staff since the switch to vB. So to see if we can fix this here we go .... If you see a post that dosnt look rite,feel rite, is spam or offensive please report it via the report button under the users avatar on the spacific post! Then list the reason for reporting the offending post (if it as a dupe please paste a link to the dupe) & it will be handled in a timely manner if deamed to not be within the rules or just needs to go. dont be shy the mod's will weigh it both ways before dealing with it.
"Where exactly does 'breaking the rules' fit in all of this?"
Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts.
I believe it is probably O.K. most of the time to use the classic approach - write a "telling" post - but, what if it seems better if the admins/mods handle it privately...
Is it O.K. to use that same report form?
