View Full Version : What is the point of the Report Post function ?

When you feel a post or a behaviour deserves to be brought to the staff's attention, you should report it using the http://imgsrv2.tennisuniverse.com/wtaworld/images2007/buttons/report.gif (http://www.tennisforum.com/report.php?p=14214857)/http://imgsrv2.tennisuniverse.com/wtaworld/images/buttons/blue/report.gif (http://www.tennisforum.com/report.php?p=15420665) icon on the left handside.

As you do so, it is immediately noted in the mod forum, and is looked at as soon as a member of the team logs on.

Each reported post generates a thread in the moderator forum that all moderators and administrators can see. It also generates an email to all administrators and to the relevant forum moderators.

Each thread that is generated is replied to by the person that takes action with a statement of what they did and why they did it - or if they did nothing, why they did nothing.

Every single reported post is looked at, and action taken accordingly after discussion within the team. Everything that is reported is left to the discretion of the mods who handle the case.

So there is a sort of trail to follow of previously reported posts and actions that were taken.

What to report?
It is every poster's reponsibility to report posts or threads that are offensive including nudity, insults or any content that go against the board rules.

Just as a reminder, spelling/grammar/typing mistakes might look annoying but do not fit in the category stated above. They will give extra work to the moderating team when there are more serious issues to adress on the board.

If you get abuse via rep or PM system refer to this (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=307897).

NB: Please note that all mods/admins are volunteers and do it in their free time, therefore it may sometimes take a little while before a case is handled.
