What is the Report System?

The report system is something all Moderator and Admin rank users can access to track reports that users make. All Moderator and Admin rank users have a notification in their toolbar, similar to the pm notification you have, that will pop up when there's a new report and allows them to browse old reports.

When you report something the comment / guide etc that you reported is automatically linked in your report. Mods / Admins can then investigate the comment or page that was reported and take action where appropriate.

If you are debating whether or not to report just do it! Mods and Admins will have a better understanding of the rules, and it is our job to determine whether or not a user is breaking the rules. Simply reporting someone won't get them in trouble unless they are actually breaking the rules, and may help give us an early warning if an argument is getting out control etc.


How Do I Report Someone?

Before you report be sure you have a good understanding of the rules before reporting someone. If you are unsure whether or not they are breaking the rules be sure to check out these rule pages:


If you're having trouble finding the report button, you can always use ctrl+f and search for "report". If you're still having trouble, the specific locations are listed below.


Reporting Comments (Forum, Blog, Guides, etc) / Threads

The report button for forum comments is located in the top left of the individual comment, to the right of the name and time the comment was posted. For guide and Q&A comments, it is at the top left. Look for "Report" written in blue text. If you want to report a thread just report the first post of that thread or a comment that you feel is breaking the rules of the thread.


Reporting a Guide

To report a guide look for the......icon to the left of the guide's score number.


Reporting a Blog

The report button on blogs is written in grey text in the top right of the blog post, under the view count. It is to the right of the pink +rep button.


Reporting a Q&A Question or Answer

To report the question itself use the......icon above and to the right of the question box. You can report an answer by clicking the yellow Report text at the top-right of the answer.


Reporting a Wiki Article

Look for the rectangular REPORT button in the top right of the Wiki Article page.


What If I Can't Report a Specific Page?

There are a few pages and areas that are not report linkable / have no report button. An example of this would be member profiles and signatures. If you cannot find a report button for a specific page / area just report something (comment, guide, anything) by the user and explain in the report what exactly you're reporting. It would also be helpful to link the specific page in the report if you can.

Maybe something should be mentioned about reporting member profiles and signatures? :) Great post, Mowen.

Additionally, the reporting page should maybe have this link as a sticky at the top? Like an explanation thing. Or maybe a tooltip sort of thing, the way +rep has one. So if people hover their mouse over the report tools, a tooltip will appear telling them what the report system is?

There isn't a way to report a profile or signature. I will put in that if there is a problem with that to just report something and note what the issue is in the report.

I will ask about this being put in the reporting page, good idea.
