    I report every now and then, but sometimes I totally forget what I reported again, or I want to see if something has been done with the report ('cause I know I sometimes file them a tad too quickly >.>"). I know the moderators get the reports as a message in the mod cp, and that it also shows who has reported. So in a sense you should be able to filter out reports by member and show it back to them. Another way to do this is to send out an automatic PM when somebody filed a report. I don't really know if this is doable, considering the fact that some might spam reports, increasing the server load.

    Just giving my two cents here, I really want to know what other people think about it.

    I think it would be more trouble than it's worth...but if you forget you've reported something, you might need a better memory. :P
    If you report something twice, it gets filtered to the same place anyway, so it's not too much clutter, while if you want to know if a report has been handled, you'll probably notice if anything changes. If you don't notice a change, then chances are it was very minor or wasn't seen to be a problem, and if you do see a big change, it'll be obvious enough.

    Plus there's all the difficulty I'd imagine there would be getting one part of the MCP visible to specific users. Sending a PM, maybe easier, but maybe still too much bother.

    Sound like a good idea, I voted yes, still I think it would not be that necessary.

    Sounds good.

    But I don't really see a point into seeing back the reported posts.
