Using the "Report to Moderator" link
« on: Saturday 04 March 06 10:08 GMT (UK) »
At the bottom-right of every post is a link: Report to Moderator

When you click on it, you get an input box, and this message:
Use this function to inform the moderators and administrators of an abusive or wrongly posted message.

This is only a very short description.  Here is a longer one:  :)

You can use this link to inform the moderators of anything you think they should know, for instance:

  • this post is on the wrong board
  • this is a duplicate post
  • this particular reply (within a topic) and the replies to this should/could be a seperate topic
  • the post would be better merged with ...
  • the post contains copyright violations
  • the post contains details of living people
  • the post contains personal data (private addresses, telephone numbers and/or e-mail addresses)
  • the posting is just advertising commercial services, pay-sites, etc
  • the posting is abusive, insulting, or generally in bad taste
  • you feel the post needs deleting/editing
  • etc, etc.

The moderators are not always online, so this is an easy way for you to get in touch with us, and help us.

Please note that if you use this link your email address will be revealed to all the moderators, but only to the moderators.  Your email will not be divulged to anyone else or used to contact you without permission.
