The CR4 moderation
team is alerted to issues of all sorts by members who use the report button.
Spammers? We can stop them. Abuse of CR4's terms? We can
resolve the issue. While the moderation team actively watches for
inappropriate content, CR4 members can help us find these issues more quickly.
This is not to say
that we want you to report every tiny incident or spend all of your time
scouring the site for concerns. If you do see something you think we
should be aware of (like a spammer, for instance), that's a great use of the
report button. Telling us that someone
misspelled a word is not such a great use of the button. (Try a private message to the user.)
Little is accomplished
when you comment on a spam thread describing it as such. The spammer
doesn't return for comments in the majority of these cases so it's not an
effective way to help the original poster learn the site rules. Comments
simply attract attention to the spam thread because now it appears to be
actively generating a discussion.
How to Use the Report Button
Click the 'Report!' button that appears on any thread, comment, or user
profile. It's best if you click report
on the specific content.
Enter the problem into the text box and click
the report problem button. The text box
is limited to 250 characters, although due to a bug in the system, you can type
more than that. Please keep your message
brief because the moderation team will only see the first 250 characters. If you need to send a longer message you can
private message or email us.
You can "report"
yourself if you experiencing problems on the site. Remember that the message length is short, so
if you need to describe something in any detail, it may be better to send the
a private message or
