      You use the report function to report posts. One comes after the other.

      Irrelevant to the thread considering that the report function can encompass the ability to view closed and open reports. But if you are going nitpick rather than contribute, I may as well change the title.

      I'd like to add just how valuable it is to us in effective moderation that we receive reports from members of any rule-breaking posts - this certainly isn't just limited to the extreme examples such as pornographic material, and can be used for much lesser things such as thread moves, filter avoidance, etc. So yes, please use the report function!

      For those who don't recognise this, look for the at the top-right of each post.



      [Edit: just thought I'd make it clear that this double-post is unintentional and a bug, but unfortunately not something that I can fix in isolation. In any case, maybe it will help to emphasis the point! :p:]

      Meh. Trolls although annoying can be pretty funny. I'd probably report spam or pornography or something, but so far I've never reported a post, it's funnier to see how it plays out.

      Don't like to nitpick, but "sometimes", "rarely" and "I know what it is" are not the most effective way to split the poll, because sometimes and rarely are subjective. And "I know what it is" also applies to both of those as well.

      20 people have managed to cope.

      Don't know where you got 'I know what it is' from. If you are referring to, 'I know of its existence' - that is not subjective. I think it is pretty clear that it means you don't use the report function but you know that there is a report function. Where is the subjectivity?

      You are nitpicking to make yourself look smart. You may be right, you may be wrong but it is irrelevant for the purposes of the thread.

      I actively report posts on TSR. Because I like The Student Room. I don't mind the odd post peppered with wit or the odd troll who makes you laugh at thier stupidity. But I can't stand the people who ****e up the forums with their crap. As oxymoronic as it sounds : EVEN THE FUNNY TROLLS GET REPORTED.

      ILLUSIONARY: Do you know who the reports come from when we report them or do reports remain anonymous? Do active post reports get considered when choosing mods

      I apologise for jumping on you. Besides, poll options are out of my control, it's not something I can change.

      Yes, moderators know. It's like you sending a PM to me. I will know who the sender was. I guess knowing who sent the report can help them identify anyone abusing the report function.

      Yes, we can see who has reported a post to us, and conversely members can see which moderator(s) have dealt with their reports (via Community -> Reports). Making good post reports is one of a number of factors that we consider when appointing new mods.

      Oh. Ok then. Well I havent a problem. Its just that I dont want to seem like a pain in thse arse if I reportt posts regularily not that I do it in a nuisance or over thr top way. Ok. Then thanks. Can you be a mod in more than one local area. And if in the unlikely event someone was mod of every single forum on the site but was not explicitly made a super. Can they technically call themself or demand to be made a supermod. In hypersecret subscription areas can one be a mod for that specific area.

      Thats good because some people can be petty little gits always negging and reporting your posts in specific because of a childish vendetta against you or something liske that.

        Purple username moderators rarely mod 2 different areas (I have yet to see one). They can however be moderators of 2 similar forums. I think Drogue modded both the HoC and D&D both of which are related to debate.

        Mods are selected usually because they are regular posters of that forum, and also keep an active interest in the subject. You can't be a maths moderator if you have never posted there, or don't know any maths!

        When you are a supermod, you are in a different level in the TSR hierarchy. So no, you can't call yourself a supermod even if by some miracle they made you a mod of every forum. (Which they won't because if they considered you as such, you would be promoted to a supermod.)

        Oh and the backroom is low moderation. that I think automatically means that there are no local mods there.

            Oh, I forgot about him. But in his case and CS (before he became a supermod), they both modded GD, which is well, general (which is indifferent to the other forums). I think HoJ was referring to being a mod in two specialist areas. Say, D&D and Academic Help, or Medicine and Sports. You get the idea. But I could be wrong though.

              There is a big difference between a sports moderator and a H&R moderator. Both were appointed as mods because they each had an expertise of their respective forums. They may be have moderators, but there roles differs.

              Besides, you won't have time to moderate that many forums.
