quote GuardianGriffenMany times they didn't, and it would seem that people were actually going out of their way searching for stuff to report.I now see how that could be difficult with complaints and reports. Many times I would wounder if the member had even tried contacting the forum moderator prior to using the C&R forum.
quote OZSeems like OZ already has that covered. Sorry for the trouble.Please note the following simple guidelines before making your post.
What shouldn't you post here?

* Widespread spam/troll issues.
* Personal abuse through whatever means.
* Moderator complaints
quote Barmy_BratIf you make it too easy, they will use it for every little thing. I am capable of using it properly. I was hoping that others would too, but like he said the history of the matter doesn't support that hypothesis.Whoa.
quote DynamiteWhoa.The prominence of a system to complain to the top echelons of the people charged with dealing with the operation of the site almost trivializes and dilutes the impact and people's recognition of the difference between a minor problem and a problem which requires an administrative member's attention and time and this is essentially why incorrect use of the system provided to people as it stood was consistently present throughout the forum's tenure as public and accessible and also why I feel you're heading down the wrong path by suggesting the process is made even more visible to people through forum wide announcements and links at the top of central pages here.
quote GuardianGriffenYou've tried suggesting tools for moderators in the past and the response you'll get now is the same as the one you got last time: Stop trying to make suggestions about a part of the site you have absolutely no knowledge of. Your ideas are usually ridiculously overcomplicated and inferior to the system we already have. This is one such case.What about advertisements? That is what I was thinking about when I suggested that. A separate report selection that allows them to be viewed by supers as well as the forum moderators and listed as advertisements in their own section. The ability to remove this feature from trouble makers as well as enforcement would help curb abuse similar to how others can abuse the remove from view feature.
quote KrunalThat is another good alternative. Probably better in fact. However, that will make it easier for more members to access the link to post in this forum. We wouldn't want more people to start complaining, even if they are legitimate complaints that are handled privately.A sitewide announcement to tell members to complain about each other? I personally think the methods they have now is okay, maybe adding a bigger link to the header, but apart from that, I don't think there needs to be a site-wide announcement about it. At the end of the day, the post link will be found by someone that needs to complain.
Just my take on it anyway. And where would the link be on my.neoforum?
quote Barmy_BratI listed that as one option. Since you already have another tool in place, that one option doesn't seem very practical.Since you seem to be suggesting this as a mod-only tool
quote GuardianGriffenBecause your suggested implementation will have to either be implemented on a sietwide basis, thus causing other forums viewable only to super moderator-level users to have the same message or cause every individual private forum message would have to be manually set. It's much simpler the way it is now. If you have a legitimate report, chase down the link and submit the report or simply PM a super. Otherwise, grow some balls. The reports forum wasn't made so that people could be tattle tales over the smallest little issues, which is what the forum was being used for. Your method of providing a direct link to submit a report would be completely counter productive of the intention of the forum being made private.Why link when you can cut out the middle man?
quote GuardianGriffenModerators deal with these situations they same way they've been dealt with for years. Your proposition adds complication believe it or not.It is faster to remove from view and report an advertiser to the supers at the same time.
