Hey, I am a little confused as to what the report button is for. When I click on it it says that it is only to be used for advertising, or some form of confrontation.

If I see a thread in the wrong forum should I report that or leave it for the moderating staff? I have reported a few of them but do not now if maybe I am just being a bit of a pest

Again I know it doesn't say to report them, but I would just like it cleared up.

Anything you would like the staff to review, report it.

All of your reports so far have been for acceptable reasons.

The Report Button

Could you fix that message under the report post dialogue box Greg? It could be putting a lot of people off reporting for legitimate reasons. I know I was wary when I first saw it.
