What if you feel/think something may have been overlooked on accident? Should you report it, send someone an Owl, or just let it go and see what happens?

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

If you think it needs to be reported please use the report button. If in doubt you may always owl a staff member who is on.

Important: If you think it is a spoiler use the report button immediately, do not owl.

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

Reporting a post is basically the equivalent of pulling a fire alarm. Every staff member will check it out the moment they see it.

In the case of spoilers, this is exactly how things are supposed to work but it's definitely overkill for duplicate threads or minor things. If you think something minor is being overlooked, owl any* staff member and we'll check into it.

*any staff member besides the Admins

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

Glad I found this thread. I'd always thought it was the other way around - that reporting a post would just put it in a queue of things to be handled whereas OWLing a staff member would be for more urgent issues Thankfully I haven't had much experience with finding dodgey posts!

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

Exactly. The report button is our best weapon against spoilers and questionable content. So please use this whenever you spot a questionable post.

This is probably a silly question how can you tell if a staff member is admin or not?

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

I thought as much, just thought I had better check. Better to be safe than sorry

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

i like the idea that there is a repot abuse/report post so that if a post is inappropriate or unsuitable for our forums members they report it to the Administrators nice job and nice forum.



Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,
Nick

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

what's the diference between owling a staff member about reporting a post and using the button?

Also, what happens if someone reports a post that is completely fnie?

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

When you a report a post all staff can see it. When you owl a staff member, only that staff member can see it. They still might share it with other staff but it only goes to the one you owl. That's why it's good to owl a staff member if you're not sure and it's not something that needs immediate attention.

Nothing happens. The report is just labeled 'No action' and that's it. There is no reason to be afraid of using the report function. If you really think the post is bad, go ahead and report.


But do not use it only to get at a fellow member you don't like. We detect that sort of stuff very fast.

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

Nah, unless it's offensive it's not worth reporting. You can owl any staff member if you notice someone repeatedly bumping old threads.

In fantasy books, necromancy is also the art of reviving the dead.

Re: Questions/Comments on Reporting Posts.

Can we keep this on reporting posts? If you guys want definitions you can always just google the term
