Brains are inversely proportionate to common sense

Creating a more obvious reporting method for abuse.

Creating a more obvious reporting method for abuse.

Short, concise description of the idea
Many sites now have, on every page, a method to indicate that post is against policy. I may be missing it but I don’t see one I LJ.

Full description of the idea
By adding a link “report this post” which redirects to a page explaining what is worthy of reporting (a link to the TOS and examples). A user must be logged in for this, after reading the redirect page they can ‘continue to report”. At that time a ticket is created with a copy of the posts information (as of that time) with a date/time stamp, and the reporting user’s information and forwarded to the abuse team.

Any user found to be re-reporting a particular post will be told that they can not re-report a post.
Any user found to be abusing this option (say, 3? Unfounded reports per month) loses privileges to report.

An ordered list of benefits
  • being able to catch the bad people you obviously want out as shown by the purge but in a more structured manner. this makes it so that other community members are doing the reporting, and that reports will be evaluated on merit and not done blindly on matching a parameter.
