- Report anything that is a direct violation of the ten commandments, that is harmful to the forums, or that violates subforum or thread specific rules. Examples include flaming, posting links to hacks, advertising, and balance whine in Live Report threads.
- Select the appropriate reason from the drop down menu when reporting. If you need to enter an explanation please make sure the reason is clear so moderators can quickly assess the situation and deal the appropriate action. Please don't just select "Other" because it lets you type something in, using one of the predefined options allows us to moderate far more efficiently.
- Don't report someone who you have a personal gripe with or whom you are currently involved in an argument with. Let a third party report them if they are indeed in violation of the rules.
- If you repeatedly submit improper reports your privilege to report posts will be taken away.
- If you have questions about reporting you can ask them here.
Remember, the report button is a not a right, but a privilege. With it you can help us make sure the forums stay clean, polite and accessible but with it comes the responsibility of not making more work for us.
