    Your report has been viewed and no action will be taken.
    When a member hits the report button with a concern, depending on what the report is about, it gets dealt with or it is reassigned

    Best wishes RRB.

    Thank you. Can you explain what you mean by 'reassigned'?

    Thanks for responding RRB. However, more importantly, can you appreciate the real context of my post?

    RRB, Anna or anyone else, may i ask why when a person (me) gets told they have done wrong ie gets....

    "Your actions in this message ******** are not appropriate. This does not follow our rules. Your message may have been removed or altered.

    Your account's access may be limited based on these actions. Please keep this in mind when posting or using our site."


    or im told (anna) that im "attempting to derail a thread" with the same possible outcome,

    why is there no response to my attempt to get an explanation? if i am going to be banned for something, should i not at very least have an explanation as to what i did wrong? instead of the standard copy paste slap on the wrist? if im not told what you didnt like, how can i not do it again?

    before someone tells me to take this to PM i have tried and never get a response

    With a background where I have run support functions in commercial organisations, I can probably speculate what that means, but could you calrify; does that mean someone with a bigger hammer, higher admin rights to "manage" users, developers, legal advisors? (Of course, it might be any or all of these.)

    Yes I do AndBreathe, but I am not in Administration and as in all forums there are rules and regulations. Anna's suggestion, of a suggestion box ( excuse the pun) I think, is a good idea, if it doesn't get abused.:eek:
    An idea I just thought of is a button the mod team could press to inform the reporter that we have got the report.I think that could be beneficial :)

    Best wishes RRB

    I think that would be excellent, provided it contained some information which (for me to feel it effective) would be the Mod's ID, and the action taken. By action, there would need to be meaningful words there too. Not real granular detail, but something that actually relates to the incident/issue report.

    Sometimes, some posts/threads need to assessed by another because of the content.

    If anyone is unhappy or concerned, then please get in touch with Giverny who has already commented on this thread.

    Hopefully, after all the posts on this thread, a positive outcome will occur.

    And I raised hell when I had been banned last spring to get at least some information on why I had been banned. I got some in the end, but was also told, if I remember rightly, not to ask that kind of question openly. Never understood why though, as I felt it could be beneficial for others too to understand the grounds for bans.

    Maybe the capitals made all the difference and that's why you weren't banned?;):)

    @Robinredbreast and @Giverny - Can I ask (roughly), how many Reports you have in an average 24 hours? Clearly there will be several relating to plain old spam, because I can't think I'm the only one who reports those.

    The context of that query is I'm trying to gauge the reasonableness of some of the comments and requests we are making.

    Yes I remember that, and I looked at all your posts and couldn't see anything wrong with them, so I was very wary of what I posted for a while. I would have liked to have known what rule you broke so that I didn't do the same thing.

    I think the post that broke the moderator´s back was deleted. Understandably, as it was directed to him and he banned me for a week.

    This is one of the reasons I think it is a good idea for moderators to show by text colour, for example, if they are posting as members of the forum or if they are moderating.

    Yes there is a lot of spam at times and I fully understand what the thread is about regarding comments and requests and I sincerely hope a positive outcome will occur.
