Hi everyone,

Today we're rolling out some new functionality on, allowing registered users to "report" any post made by another user if they believe it is in violation of the forum rules and terms of use of the site. The purpose of this functionality is to quickly alert all forum moderators of the offending post, so that appropriate action can be taken if necessary.

Clicking on the "Report this Post" link, located directly underneath the subject line of every post, will take you to a simple form to submit your report. You will be required to select the "type" of report: spam, personal attack, inappropriate content, or other. You can also supply additional comments or notes to the moderators if you feel it's necessary to provide further explanation.

All reports will go to a queue which is visible to all moderators. The moderators will deal with reports in a timely fashion, and will provide feedback to the reporter if appropriate. Feedback will however not be provided for trivial cases such as spam.

Please note that the abuse of this system (i.e. filing unsubstantiated or frivolous reports) will not be tolerated, and may lead to the suspension of your user privileges. We understand however that you may think something is inappropriate and we may decide otherwise. That's OK. You should not hesitate to report something if you truly believe it violates the rules and terms.

I trust this functionality will enhance the overall moderation process and responsiveness. It places a tool in your hands with which you can directly influence the content and tone of your community.

Feel free to post up if you have any questions, comments or feedback. The system is brand new and we expect to tweak it over time.


I didn't see that option under this post.

Edit; I just reported this post.
