    [​IMG] Improvements to the Report System
    Use it, folks!
    [​IMG]
    This is just a quick 'heads-up' to let you know that the Report System has been greatly improved behind-the-scenes for the staff. This means that your reports are now handled much faster and far more efficiently than before. We have, however, noticed that people don't seem to be using it very much even though the staff are dealing with as many issues around the forum as usual.

    We want you to know that if you see anything around the forums that you find offensive or rude to either yourself or others, you should report it right away! It only takes a minute for you to fill the form in (click the 'Report' button under a post to get to this) and it helps us greatly in dealing with these problems in a timely manner.

    Thanks a lot, your help is much appreciated.

    I find it offensive that we have a report system... that I never knew existed.

    I too had no idea we had a report system here.

    I suppose I'll keep this in mind the next time people decide to raise a stink in the Blog sections again.

    I for one will never report anyone, no matter how offencive their post might be... I am no GRASS!!! But I do understand why the forum needs one in place.

    yes, it DOESN'T mean that the reported post will be removed however. That depends on the actions taken by staff that are deemed necessary

    Are reports dealt differently (e.g. more leniently) in the Testing Area?

    for myself personally this would only apply to posts that are considered spam
