How to report a post (that violates forum rules) to the mods

First of all, if you are reading this, than you are curious about how to get a mod in contact with a post that you feel is against the rules of the forum located here:

Rules

You may also be reading this b/c RTF suggested a DIY for this and it was a great idea!

How to Report a Post

This is simple. Go to the post that you find is against the rules. You will see a triangle emblem with an exclamation point in it (it is circled in the attached picture).

Click on this emblem. It will take you to a screen where you are asked to type a message. In this message, just give the mods a heads up on what is offensive in the post. We as mods will get the message along with links to the thread as well as the individual post in question.

If there are any questions, feel free to PM any mod and they will do their best to help you out.

This ability to report a post is a way to help all of us keep the forum clean of spam and posts that violate our rules. Please do not abuse the button, but by all means report away when you see posts in question. It really helps us out to find all of these posts and squash them.

V/R,



Your Moderating Team

x2.

Now how exactly do we report offensive avatars? I've seen quite a few that I don't feel represent our family oriented and mature atmosphere.

I suppose if enough complaints are made, then a mod could warn the person... if it's not changed, then an infraction. The offensiveness would need to be pretty bold. While mj is illegal, the pictures of it's not. It could be helpful in determining who you're dealing with. It has helped me in the past.

Well I wasn't really speaking out against that particular avatar. I don't smoke anything, nor do I really care to see it on DA, but the image is not 'offensive'.

Thanks though...

It's not my "cup of tea" either....but being the OLD LADY on here, I could find offensive things about several pix. So that's why I'd leave it up to the masses. I will say that us mods have discussed a few avatars.

Personally, when I see something like that leaf, or a girlie pix, it makes me automatically give the person less slack on other things.... it's just human nature. So a bad attitude will be judged harsher.

Kinda like trying to convince a tech you maintain your car diligently when you take it in all crusty on the outside, full of trash on the inside & all. I can assure you that a tech may not mean to, but he'll not take the care he might with a clean one.

In terms of 'girlie' pics, princess, I guess my avatar fits under that description. But these are all my students who were in the audience.

Should I change?

Perhaps in the Maserati GranTurismo rather than the Dodge Viper pictured?

No...don't change it.


Mainly....we are looking for truly offensive avatars.....something that would offend the 95% percentile...not the 5th percentile.

We are not looking to censor all beliefs, pictures, and values...just the ones that are detrimental to the forum as a whole.

As long as it is PG...I think we would consider it okay.
