PostSubject: "Report Post" feature   Mon Sep 28, 2009 5:25 am

In light of certain incidents over recent weeks, we've implemented a "report post" feature for the forum. You should see a little exclamation mark above posts (including your own) for you to report posts that go against the rules of this site.

Please do not take the mickey with this feature as our time is limited as it is. If you feel the rules don't cover enough or should be clarified to include specific things, then please discuss them in the forum HQ. In addition to that, please give us as much detail as possible when reporting. If you help us, then it's much easier for us to help you!

The current main reasons we have listed for reports are:
  • Abusive towards me or others
  • Contains offensive content
  • Trolling
  • Direct naming and shaming
  • This post is all in capitals

As with everything related to TRR, we can change or add to these if you wish.

The admin team will respond to these posts as quickly as we possibly can, but we're not on the forum 24 hours per day, so it might take a few hours to get back to you. We'd ask you to be patient under these cirumcstances.

If you have any questions about this new feature, please contact one fo the admin team and we'll be lgad to help.

The TRR Admin Team.

Can we get a definition for 'trolling'? Aside from hiding under bridges and eating goats I'm not entirely clear what's included.

I also think that naming and shaming 'indirectly' is pretty bad too - if someone writes about a review or a person without naming them but making it pretty bleedin' obvious who they mean, does that count?

I'm sure Admin and Cat will have their own opinions, but I think each case of indirect N&S should be judged on its own merits - we don't want to end up with silly situations where even the most vague of posts is reported!

I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent.

The right to be heard does not automatically include the right to be taken seriously.

K, look here:

A troll IMO is someone that causes disruption on a messageboard. This might be due to a number of different methods - posting off-topics messages, ignoring posts directed at them in favour of antagonising others, repeated rules infractions etc.

Okeydokey - good job we don't get those round here! (Says she in best pantomime voice waiting for the 'Oh yes we do' chorus to respond)
