    Okay.
    I agree with your stance on this and will try my best to cease doing this in the future.

    True but it just seems the same as saying yes by itself, but I will abide by the rules and will try not to submit 1 word posts!

    it seems like a lazy way for some people who post yes. also a different way is to say you just reported the person after that person posted the info he/she did not know about

    also can you get banned/warned for abuse the report bar?

    Yes, you can be warned for repeated misuse of the report button.
    It's very rare, but it can happen.

    I don't really see the point to this as Mods put a reason when they trash someones post so that person knows what they did wrong and tries not to do it again, unless that's what you mean.

    ok i'm going say for example

    poster A makes a topic about SuperCardTwo in the R4 section

    poster B sent's a report to the mod's with the mod button then post in poster A's topic saying like your going get reported if you say that.

    then the mod move's the topic to supercard and poster B's post gets trashed. cause the person was all ready reported and there's no need to report any more.

    that's what i was trying to say. to clear things up.

    C'mon, Vulpes. My post wasn't even a 1 word post. I had white text underneath it.

    Glad someone fell for it though.

    question: i view the ROM-hacking and translations board for DS frequently and sometimes see others rushing tranlators to release thir patches faster, translate more, etc.etc. A few projects that were in progress have been stopped altogether because of the incessant whining of said others. Would these others be eligible to be reported?

    What is easiest for mods when we have a troll loose of the variety that signed up to troll, in multiple threads etc?
    I have been on forums where they want you to click report, on every troll post they make, in other peoples threads. But I have equally been on others were you are told to only report this type of troll once and the mods will 'disappear' all of the trolls posts together automatically.

    If there's a troll that signs up and begins flooding, even reporting a single thread is enough for us to spot him and spambot him, which deletes the posts and IP bans the user. If there are multiple threads, you may report more than one, though if the user is brought to our attention even from a single report we will often spot the other threads too.

    Okey dokey. Just wanted to check because one board I was on went mental at you if you reported multiple instances of a flood type troll spamming the place.
    Thanks

    It's always good practice to do so, then mods can move it to the right section.

    It would also be nice for the reporting feature to have drop-down menus with common violations to select. This would make it a bit faster and easier to report violations.

    Speaking of which, there should be a drop-down menu entry for "ryanrocks462 account" because lately he has been creating a new account every day to evade his bans.:glare:

    I think this needs to be said, but whenever you report someone you think is trolling please report where they're trolling and not just their profile, it makes it so much easier for us moderators when we know where to look.
