I'm not seeing enough people use the report function when there's something going on the the forums. And this concerns me, since it takes away from the effectiveness of the board and global moderators, since they can't spend time looking through every thread in the forum every day. So let's try to see more of it's usage, eh?

What happens when I use the report button?

When you see a post that could be breaking the rules, such as somebody going off topic, or somebody getting flamed, and you press the report button, a message containing the offending post and an optional message by the reporting user is sent to whatever moderators are moderating the board/forum. From there, they can handle the situation.

When should I use the report button?

The report button is NOT to be used against another user if they disagree with you or get into a minor argument. It should only be used in cases that require the assistance of a member of staff. Such as rule breakers.

I might add more stuff later. But please be sure to use this information to make the report button less lonely and make the forum a safer place for all of us!

Update: The report button should not be used to directly communicate with the staff. PMs should be used for such purposes.
