    The following is our policy on the use of the Reporting Function. It is our hope that this will clarify what the goal is behind the feature and curtail some of the unnecessary and inappropriate usage.


    The purpose of the Report Function is to alert the moderator(s) to flagrant and obvious rule violations that may require moderator action. The Report Function should be used to report serious trolling, flaming, spamming, language violations or a spamvertiser. Increasingly, the Report Function is being used by members as a way to 'punish' another user because of a difference of opinion. This is not an acceptable use of the Report Function. Should you have a question as to whether another user is 'flaming' or 'trolling', you should contact the forum moderator via PM for clarification or to discuss the situation - please do not utilize the Report Function in for instances that are not (as previously stated) flagrant and obvious rule violations.

    Should a user abuse the Report Function, that user may be subject to a ban. Abuse is generally defined as utilizing the Report Function multiple times for issues ranging from a difference of opinion to a general complaint about another user. We will not attempt to outline every scenario of abuse in this policy. Bans will be issued after review by the forum mods and/or an administrator and may range from 24 hours or longer depending on the severity of the abuse.

    Good thread. That is a necessary clarification, Power Autumn Wanderer Princess Unicorn Kate!

    Can we install a second button for when I lose a debate really badly and am sad...?

    You do realize that these people will probably end up calling 911 instead now, right?

    The "you picked on my favorite character" posts going to 911 will be hilarious.

    And given that 911 calls are recorded whoever decides to up and do that will be about as famous as the people who call 911 because they didn't get their fast food order exactly as they wanted it to be.
