    Whenever you send a PM, it said "Message Sent", but when you send a report, it says "Sending Report...." like it hasn't sent yet, even though it has.
    It really should be changed to match the PM's, and say "Report Sent" to be less confusing. Some people might not think it actually ever sent the report, as the only message you get is "Sending Report....", which might cause them to send another because they don't relize it actually did send.

    EDIT: Tried to fix my grammar.... it's hard to properly word what I'm trying to say in the last sentence.

    Weird it usually says "Report Sent". I sent a report just now, to take a screenie and it didn't show up. I agree however with this idea.

    I'm glad you understood what I was trying to say, I edited it to be better grammar after you quoted that.
    But I never once have seen "Report Sent", it's always been "Sending Report...." for me, despite PM's always say "Message Sent".

    The staff disabled your report functionality ages ago.

    But not Devins.

    Devins reports are valued by us.

    I really hope you're not being serious..... I have to admit, I can't really tell. I'm extremely dead to sarcasm today.

    Plus, it's said it ever since GBATemp went to V3, so I kinda doubt it's true, also considering the things I report usually conincidentally get rectified shortly after I report them.

    It's just with such a minor inconvenience (If you can even consider it that) as that, and well, your reputation, it just seems way too trollish/attention-seeking.

    Outside of the EoF I do not troll, I do not attention seek, and I do post serious posts. EoF is the only place where my reputation is like that, and if that's the only place you've seen me, I understand your viewpoint. That's just my EoF side though, which is really not a high point of mine today.

    Also, as you said, it's a minor problem, but it's still a problem. It can cause people to double send reports, thinking that the first one never sent due to the fact there was no real confirmation.
    Yes, minor, but that also means "Easily fixable".

    @DJ - I don't say when I report posts, and I only report things that violate the GBATemp rules, or sometimes my own topics when I realize I drastically misworded the title (IE I said "does" instead of "doesn't", very different meanings). I'm pretty sure p1ngpong was just being his usual ass to me self when he said that. It's annoying enough in EoF, but when p1ng says stuff that like outside of EoF, in a real topic I made, with literally nothing else to say, it just.... makes me hate some of the members here so much.

    This isn't EoF.
    Just fucking stop trolling me outside the EoF, especially in posts I'm being serious in, seriously.


    EDIT: This post was formerlly DELETED by p1ngpong. Apparently someone recovered it.

    Guys, this isn't EoF. Though to many that is their domain, try to at least act like you have a ounce of seriousness. (Yeah this coming from me. I know.) Though a small issue, it is a issue nonetheless. I myself have experienced this, when the site got updated I sent a Report, and it just said sending. I sent another reply, and got the same thing. I eventually gave up. (Thereafter, I started getting Report Sent so I haven't bother with it since. So lets wait for Costello, or someone who can edit or inform us of what can be done. Rather than bickering. Sound okay?

    Honestly, this isn't an issue. Just live with it. You're just being extra sensitive today, [member='Xuphor'].

    Devin's got a good point and i was reading in the shout box that Xuphor got out of the hospital. so maybe that's why she's overreacting.

    edit: LOL i had that in bold that's my bad i'm really not getting Jiggy with it today...

    Are you kidding me p1ng? You deleted my post which just said "stop trolling me ousdie the EoF", for "attacking a staff", but didn't delete you CLEARLY trolling post to me that says "I beg you, don't cry"?

    REALLY?

    EDIT: Someone undeleted the post that p1ngpong deleted for "attacking a staff member" on page 1.

    DJPlace is right, I see Costello is reading this.

    My point has been made with the Report problem, this is turning into nothing more than p1ng pulling his shit on me outside of the EoF again.

    Close this, I'm so damn sick of p1ng doing this crap unhindered. Yes, this is attacking a staff member, but he REGUARLY attacks me more than I attack him. I'm talking outside of the EoF, this thread is a PRIME example. I'm truly sick of it.
