View Full Version : New Problem: Before reporting...
September 16th, 2009, 05:24 PM
So bascially what I'm trying to ask is this. Before i even report anyone like for example. If he/she was spamming on a thread would I just report to them right away? Or like if their thread was meaningless like say they wrote the wrong topic on the wrong section would i report that?
so basically all I'm trying to say is how do I report should I report people in the right way?

If someone's spamming up a thread, then yeah you report. >_> And yeah, if someone posted a thread in the wrong section then that is against the rules, so naturally it should be reported. o3o

You should report as much as you can, as it helps the community by letting the staff know of problems in a thread, PM, VM, or blog comment, or blog entry. But don't go overboard with it.
And don't report for the slightest mistake, either.
And to answer your questions, yes to both.

Trust me, it does help. A lot. By the way, if it's the thread that you want to report, just report the first post. It'll be handled then. :3

Alright. I understand what you all mean now. Mods if you think this thread is no longer needed you may as well close it.

Basically, if your first instinct is "hey, this might need to be reported..." you should report it. Even if you're not 100% sure.
It only takes a minute for a mod to close an incorrect report, so even if it's wrong it doesn't hurt, and in the chance that it's right you've helped the staff with their job.
