    Personally, I like these. But remember that I am only the Moderator of both General Forums, all others might disagree with me

    The only thing I personally dislike in a report is when people don't say why they reported it. Not filling in the comment etc. Its annoying to have a list of ~20 reports and that I need to decide what has priority. Of course, no comment = no priority to me.

    Question: I find that a huuuge number of threads (almost all) have people that says stupid offensive things. Should I report every single thread, following the "one report per thread" thumbrule? I mean I would be happier to see more banned pictures in threads due to the amount of people acting stupid.

    I read through the guidelines but it isn't clear to me. So I'm sorry if I'm posting this question if it should be obvious.

    I mean I would be a terrible moderator as I would hit the ban button so many times to the point that it would be on flames forever ^_^

    EDIT: Had to correct some spelling. Can't spell when I'm tired but get pissed when I see my posts with incorrect spelling :P

    EDIT: after some further reading I may have found an answer.. still if you need me to stop sending in reports tell me XD

    Lord,
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
    Courage to change the things I can;
    And the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I might have to kill because they piss me off!

    Two questions: Is it possible to report a whole thread?

    For instance, a thread gets derailed, and I just want to get a mod to lock it. How would I go about that?

    Second, I've seen some people with 4chan in their sigs. It isn't advertisment in that it promotes a product or service, but I just feel I should report it for the sake of saving someone from finding that God-forsaked cesspool.

    Report the first post and make a clear comment.

    Dinnerbone edited that site out of a post of mine once, so yeah I'm pretty sure they want you to report it to keep the scum away from proper human beings (absolutely no offence intended).

    Dinnerbone will find you and kill you if you do. (Seriously he scares me.)

    But yeah it can be a number of things:
    A) They haven't gotten around to banning him yet.
    B) They're still deciding on proper punishment.
    C) They gave a warning because it might have been the fist time he acted like a drunk sailor on drugs.
    D) Something extremely obvious I missed.

    If the offensive post remains, just report it again after a day or so. (once every 24 hours sounds like a good rule to me.) But other than that let the mods do their jobs, they'll probably have guidelines on the actions they're allowed to take.

    If it's a PM they can take a lot of time to get to because only admins can check them.

    I don't mean to be rude, but if you're considering calling your lawyer over something said in this forum, you might be a bit oversensitive to the people in the forum. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of jerks and I wish for stronger enforcement of the rules as well, but sometimes you need to take a step back and remember it's a forum. Report the people being idiots, then ignore them.

    Yea, I figured that's what got you going. You know mods have to sleep. There may not be any mod on right now, or there may be a backlog of reports. For the record, naming and shaming is very frowned upon here. You need to be patient. Reports can take a day (or more if unlucky) to get to. Rest assured that the mods do not ignore reports, and do not take insulting lightly.

    Insulting someone isn't against the law as far as I know, certainly not on the internet. As for that comment. Yes it should be moderated and probably will, but it's certainly not overly offensive in my eyes. The internet is a foul place and you need tough skin.

    Please don't start using "this post breaks the law". We had enough of this a while back. It doesn't work that way.

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I admit that I started feeling stupid for reporting the same issues over and over again (from new violators ofc, apparently ppl don't bother reading the forum rules) - you know..the standard stuff: "This" posts "lol" oneliners "facepalm pictures" without any text added, and the run of the mill insults.

    Good to know you guys are still on this and still encourage our help. Not least since after the member roster cleanup from 135 000 to 100 000, there have been something like 40 000 new members in the last months.

    That thread doesn't look like it got ignored. Bans left and right and a mod locking it. And the OP seemed flamebait and constructed in a very lame way from the get go. Just proof that ppl will go out of their way to find a flaw with anything that Blizzard adds or changes.

    So, in short: the internet.

    Muhaha, I just get you to deal with it, Dinnerbone!

    Are there consequenses for the reporter if he reported the same post multiple times in the following minutes? (Yes, I know you have to wait 60 seconds.)

    If we wake up to find the first page of our inbox is full of reports from the same person all exactly a minute after eachother, we may give you a warning or an infraction for abusing the report system. As I said in my first post, it's unlikely you will need to report so many when you can just as easily say "plus posts by SomeTroll and AFlamer in same thread".

    But this isn't so likely to happen lately. I don't think we've even said "please don't do this" to anyone for spamming reports in almost half a year now.


    Edit: I misread. You mean reporting the same post multiple times? Why would you do this? If you keep spamming the same post, yes you may be likely to receive an infraction. It serves no purpose and is just spam.

    And please tell me about it before you start to spamreport, I'd rather not have a post next to yours, as I'd prefer to stay out of Dinnerbone's cleave (a)

    I know it sounds basic but what if we noticed a topic is in the wrong forum and we would want to move it to the correct one instead of locking?

    If you've reported a PM to admin, will you be notified if and when any action is taken?

    No, we don't notify of specific actions taken. We do evaluate each report, though; don't worry.

    can you report the rift posts? they are really getting annoying, it would be kk for a few posts of them but not hundreds of them.

    You can't just report a thread because it's about Rift. But, if it's the exact same conversation as another thread already started you can report it.
