What is Reporting?
Reporting is a way for members to bring moderators’ attention to content that they believe is inappropriate. “Report” is an option under “Flag” in the Reactions available under each post.
Reporting a post
Go to Flag → Report in the Reactions menu at the end of the post.
A popup box will prompt you to select a “Reason” (if configured in addon settings) as well as provide an optional free text field to add additional note for the moderation team.
Any member with the "Flag" permission may use this function.
Once the report has been submitted, the reporting user receives a pop up confirmation at the bottom left:
Reporting content creates a new discussion in a special moderator-only category called "Reported posts". You can access this by going to the categories menu, or by choosing this option directly from the mebox:
The report will include a rich quote of the reported post, a link to the original post, and each comment will be the report reasons and any free text entered by the reporter.
Each discussion represents a piece of reported content. The discussion starter is whoever reported the content first.
Additional reports of the same content (the exact same post) add new comments to the special discussion.
If different comments in the same discussion are reported, each will get its own special report discussion.
Only moderators may see reports and receive notifications about them.
Notification of reports
If they have the Advanced Notifications permission, moderators may subscribe to receive popups and/or emails of all new discussions and/or comments in the Reported Posts category.
