Knock it off

Post by MaryamQ on 2012-06-14, 18:11

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. I have handled 4 reports today, 3 for one topic which was also handled by the two other moderators without taking care of the reports. The 3 in this topic were for images, one of which was marginal and I removed it, but the other two not at all obscene, which is what they were reported for. The fourth report was simply because a thread was thought to be in the wrong subforum. After review, I moved the thread, though I think there could be arguments made either way. None of these 4 reports warranted a warning, and most I consider not even worthy of a report. I moved another thread at the suggestion of a member of Congress within the thread. I locked a thread that could have been locked by any moderator or a SC Justice, because of a suggestion within the thread that it should be locked.

I took on the job of moderator willingly, but I do think others need to be taking on their responsibilities in this area, too, and it does not make me (or probably them) happy to see a new report box popping up every time I come to the forum. Some of you have already noticed and commented to me privately that I am not in a good mood. You may easily believe if this keeps up I will become even uglier.

tl;dr: Knock off reporting for frivolous reasons, and for goodness' sakes, think before you start a thread whether that is the most appropriate place to put it.

You guys got it easy, I was moderator during the civiele war when we had 10 reports every dat and 75% of the report where made by NLSP, Ward and TR and almost all where not worth a warn or Anton other action. Some people will report anything they dont like.

Why don't we ignore all reports from here out? If something is really offensive then there will be talk about it you can be assured. Maryam's time is worth more than that! You guys would hate me if I was a moderator (never will be) because I'd tell both sides to shut up and chill out.

I checked that for you and that is actually not correct.
not the amount of the reports and not the ratio of reports

Yeah sure NLSP Rolling Eyes
I'm pretty sure it happened and posted about it in admin/moderator forum.

Edit:
And you might be right that ratio might not be correct, think it was even more then 75% more like 90%

We could abolish the report button and ask people to report to admins only by pm? People would then only report when it's really important.
