I help moderate another forum, www.martialtalk.com
we have a very useful feature there. Under each post, there's a clicky that says "report to moderator" and then it takes you to a screen where you can put in what's wrong, or what needs to be fixed (an NSFW warning, perhaps), and an email is sent to the mods of that forum to let them know to check it out.
Its been a very useful tool for the mods over at MT. Not sure how practical it would be to implement here but it would be nice to be able to alert the mods to something, because we know you all can't be everywhere at once.
oh... someone asked me to define what I meant by issue...
for example, if someone posts an attachment that is NSFW and doesn't mark it as such, you can report to mod so they know about it. It can also be used to report a technical problem, or someone being outrageously rude.
We do appreciate a PM if you see something getting out of hand
Since most of the mods have their profile set on invisible, 95% of the time I have no clue to to PM to report something (if its bad). Usually I have to guess trying to think which greenie (that has access to that forum) posted last.
IMHO, the report feature would be nice.
