The Report Button

  1. Feb 2, 2008 #1
    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 :shy:

    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. :smile:

    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.
