    I report posts but the mods/admin(s?) don't do anything about the post.

    Ok, maybe they tell the person off but the post is still there, no edited.

    I have seen about 4 posts with people saying where to get Roms/Asking where, i reported but nothing happens the post get left like it is.


    Example: I could post somewhere on GBAtemp saying where i get my Roms and the post would stay and i wouldn't get a warning/ban ok maybe i would get told off be a GBAtemp member but not a mod/admin. EDIT2: i won't do that btw.


    The work done by a Admin/mod could be better IMO



    EDIT:
    WHOOPS the title should be: do the admin/mods do anything?

    All reported posts should be dealt with appropriately. If a post isn't removed/edited then it's most likely not breaking any rules.

    In some cases reported posts may be overlooked but I should hope this is quite rare.

    Topic moved to Site discussions, suggestions & forum help

    I think they do a good job, all things considered. They do remove offensive posts, warn trolls and spammers, and keep the forum civil. "Whar R teh ROMZ" questions are not such a big deal, as long as nobody answers them.

    Well asking for Roms/Telling where Roms can be found IS against the rules....right?

    EDIT: Don't get me wrong the admin/mods do a good job with everything else, just the job of dealing with posts like i mentioned don't get dealt with

    I think the mods do a great job, We need to remember this is quite a large site and it must be very hard to look over everything so they might miss one or two things. The only think i would want to see added to the rules is no fanboys ! [​IMG] other than that the gbatemp mods do a great job [​IMG]

    Eh, I've seen a lot of flaming wars go on for longer than necessary, before being closed... but other than that, the staff of Gbatemp has been pretty decent. Think I've been here for long enough to say that I know these guys are doin' their jobs well.

    Do you mind if I ask how retman get banned? I'm confused. Maybe I'm having an issue with my senses.

    Mods here do a very good job. We get enough freedom but they get rid of shit that's offensive depending on how severe it is.
