    tnx for the info, guess i can report most rift threads then since 90% of them is all about rift beating wow with all the same argumentation, would be awesome if a moderator could make a threat where ppl can post about it.
    cant imagen many ppl liking the bashing of their favorite game whenever they go to the biggest wow community site

    Yes, you're always welcome to report things which are in the wrong section. It's also helpful to us to make a note of that in the reporting reason section.

    Is there a system how many infraction points will result in a ban (and for how long that ban is) or is that up to the mods discretion? Also..does it vary from case to case or changed over the years? Just asking, because I received a 7 day ban for a "This" post in 2008 and the most recent for telling somebody off that they kept making "I quit" or "I am am tired of this and that" threads.

    Not contesting the decisions ("This" posts are against the rules...I know...and telling people what to do and what not prolly earned me a ban because I was trying to say what is up to the discretion of mods...so I can stomach that) - just curious if this system eventually ends in a "3 bans = 1 permaban .....or such...

    Each infraction has a fixed amount of points. There's fixed thresholds causing bans.

    Plus, the infractions naturally degrade over time -- the points from most infractions expire after 3 months, and it's back to a clean slate.

    It's actually pretty difficult to get a permaban, unless there are some major infractions involved.

    While it is easy to tell, what in general is against the forum guidelines, there are far too many posts to report every single one, that might only slightly be against them, but also many, where it is easy to tell that it doesn't belong on the forums.

    You can also report a single post, and then in the attached message say something along the lines of "also see posts #X, #Y, #Z" or "also see other posts by this user".

    Could we get a feature to report abusive moderation or rate mods that we know are in threads that are not handling trolls correctly? this would help out the site alot.

    Complaints about moderation should be directed to a super mod or an admin (Sunshine is your best bet).

    That feature you want is sending a PM to Sunshine or Boubouille for problems you have with moderation.

    This crazy fad that's been going on lately, just quoting threads and writing nothing of value kind of in the same sense as 'QFT'ing, annoys me greatly.

    Since my search function doesn't work, I'll post it here. Perhaps post in this thread how you can have your thread title changed as you can't do it yourself. Reporting is only for so much to be used .

    With a non working search function. Search "how to change thread name", getting "Panadaren VS Dreadlords", "Fun stuff", "Do you want Panadaran in the next expansion", etc anything not related to my search at least ;p. Tried it with " and without, just gives same hits.
