Title: The Forum's "Report to Moderator" Function
Post by: Andy on Monday 28 May 2007, 03:50:01 PM
As you're probably aware, this forum has a "Report to Moderator" function built into its software (located at the bottom-right corner of all posts). The purpose of this function is to aid moderators in their duties. As you can imagine, it's not easy (nor plausible) for a small team of people to read every last post in every last thread on the forum, so this is where we need your help. If you see a post that you believe is in violation of the forum's Rules and Guidelines or Terms of Service, it would be highly appreciated if you could use the "Report to Moderator" function to bring it to our attention.

By using this function, you help to increase the quality of the forum, as well as boost your own reputation amongst the administrators, which may lead to consideration for moderator duties should such positions become available in the future.

Note, however, that misuse of this function (such as reporting posts that are blatantly NOT in violation of any rules) may lead to discipline, banning or deletion, if it is a frequent occurrence.

Also please be aware that, whilst reportings are not anonymous to administrators, all details will be kept strictly confidential and will not leave the admin forum. You will not, under any circumstances, be name dropped on the open forum for reporting a post in a genuine manner.

If you have any questions regarding the "Report to Moderator" function, please PM or e-mail one of the forum's administrators.
