Not a complaint, more a suggestion to help mods manage the red x's

On other forums, when reporting as post, there are often more categories, plus an ability to add a comment. I do believe this assists the mods on those sites.

The sort of comments I've added on those forums in the past have been:

- "This person also posted this on XYZ site and has provoked arguments as those threads progressed. Feels like a roaming troll".
- "I think a genuinely innocent mistake - worth a quiet word to explain why that post isn't acceptable"
- "This argument follows a run in the two combatants had on the politics forum - suggest a reminder that they keep their arguments there"


In particular for us, I would see huge value in at least a third option of I don't want to see that post, but I've no reason to suggest it gets moderated/removed.

There would be others that could be useful (often subsets of the current larger groupings) e.g.
- Posted in wrong forum
- Promoting business without following the rules (these can be innocent errors)
- Spam (cases where it's obvious spam)

and so on

The key question for any requirements will be "What categorisation / info would make it easier for you to apply appropriate moderation"

Regards
Ian

Click on the Red X. Choose Personal. You don't see it, but it isn't reported to Mods in any way. I mostly use it for hiding annoying Gifs or huge ziggurats, or for hiding items in G4GG geeklists that I'm not interested in.

I wouldn't mind an option for wrong forum. Personal doesn't seem right and rules violation doesn't seem right either.

you can mark a thread as wrong forum but not an individual post

They really are an experiment in algorithmic, generative composition.

I'm still baffled why this was posted to Complaints, and why an admin hasn't moved it to Suggestions.

Actually it was just a statement indicating confusion. There was no admonishment or explicit disapproval or ire or invective. I mean, you can read a complaint into it, but that's also true, albeit to a lesser degree, of the OP's original comment.

Russ is never confused. That dude is like a Buddha figure. So enlightened. So the know.

Complaint all the way.

We definitely need someone to have a comment moderated in this thread to raise the roof.

There's a thread in Suggestions that is really more of a Complaint. Maybe we can do a swap.

I have a new complaint. When looking at forums > active, the next button works again and I can view threads in chronological order of latest post, without having to type a '4' into the URL to see page 4, which invariably was older than page 5 & 6. This has removed all the randomness out of reading the forum, so I'm reduced to rolling a D6 to choose which page to view, so I can bring some excitement back into browsing the forum. Completely unacceptable BGG
