    Forum changes! Polls and Reporting

    Post by Emergence on Mon Jan 23, 2012 6:14 pm

    I am happy to announce two new tweaks to the forums:

    First one is the Report a Post function. If you look down at the bottom of a user's post below where the sig would be, you will see an exclamation point. Clicking on that will open a report window where you can communicate your concerns to the moderating teams. Choose a reason for the violation from the drop down menu and include a message if desired. Please do not abuse this function, only report content you feel is in clear violation of the forum guidelines. Abuse of the system will result in loss of reporting privileges and a warning. Once the report is filed, allow the moderation team to investigate the matter and respond if necessary. We ask that you please do not attempt to follow up on reported content or question the investigative process with further messages/reports. Please help us make the community a warm and welcome place for the global membership this site has.

    Secondly, poll options have been increased to 20, which should allow for enough minutiae, and help keep polls from feeling too limited.

    Thanks for reading!

    The left exclamation point is the report icon. The double exclamation point with the lock is a notifiier letting you know if the post is reportable or not. It is something an admin can toggle so say a post has been reported, and we investigate it and take appropriate action we can then toggle the post as not reportable any further.
