Reporting and Moderation

  • Well, for now reports are supposedly going a way and a half.
    The way is e-mail, the half is instant prompting (working not only if a mod on-site - but s/he has to stare at the screen at the moment).
    The way (mailing) is no better: suppose the mod still gets emails when s/he off-site --- now what?

    The only way to deal with the above depicted "ways" is throwing them to the trash can.
    And making something normal.
    Like inline flagging, a mod mode of sorts (a mod can get a table grouping all the reported stuff - with the reasons shown). (Don't forget there might happen a "revoke stock" needed - or not. It's merely a trash can, where certain stuff resides for a limited period of time. In case...)

    <hr>

    You know what? Those who report things might be interested that I've found an easy gesture while reporting: when you hit the grey word "Reason" above the typing box, you immediately get skipped to the bottom "Submit" button - instead of having to hit an area or F9 and then using your PgDn key :idea: :sherlock:

    Yes, and by this I officially apply to a moderator. Or we can create a new staff item - like curator (two guys have already applied: :psmurf: & :beard: / 😄 ).

    It definitely works in Opera (presto). In Google Chrome, it does not (though not needed). I didn't check about Firefox, but so long as the editing/typing box is squeezed there, it's not needed either.

    joshl was responding to a post someone posted here asking if this was the right place to ask questions about Opera Mini. I deleted the post because it was off topic.</blockquote>

    Linux, you should've edited my post with inserting his/her quote there first.
    Nevermind...

  • [fun]

    [Mod note: Please do not hijack threads to post about unrelated sunject. Post on a more appopriated one or just reate a new]

    [/fun]

    The mod was so frustrated that he/she hardly could handle the keyboard.;)

    I don't know - maybe we should create a Lounge topic to preserve funny posts? With funny typos and such:)
    As long as it's impersonal 😉

  • Thanks for pointing that out, I hadn't noticed when I just now replied in that thread. 😛 (No, that wasn't me originally.)

  • Have anybody noticed babas come here in waves?
    What are they? Do they work in shifts maybe? 🙂

    They are probably "zumbi" bots.

  • Don't you get the report notifications still?

  • Don't you get the report notifications still?

    Don't know about the others but i receive lots of notifications about spam posts daily and, to be honest, most of them are kinda useless for me.

    This is because i probably won't come here to deal with spam posts just after have received the notifications or because of them, unless, maybe, if i'm already on the computer/web doing nothing else important. 99,9% o fthe time i deal with spammers when i come to the foruns to read them.

    Also, those obvious and evident spam threads will be seen and removed by a mod sooner or later. The clever ones are those that may look like as a normal thread or comment, reporting them would be more useful imho.

  • Those two posted before this didn't look too clever. I'll look at any new threads with a nonsense or off-topic title. But don't bother with the babas or the new Chinese spammer - those are obvious.

  • O'k.🙂

  • Leo, do you have your notifications enabled?
    We're still having something here...:faint:

  • @sidneyneto:
    There was a normal suggestion made by myself - I don't know where exactly. About an automaton and a "shadow board" for moderators. I could add to that suggestion, that the [presumed] automaton could hide new&unanswered topics - if they get, say, ten reports by users.

  • #Post held for moderation
    Your post has been flagged for moderation, and will appear once it's been approved.

    If your post violates our terms of service or forum rules it may be rejected without further notice.

    It's something new!

    Well, if ANY postreply from monkeys with the "money bags" will be suspended only because of an ![](image) in it, we're gonna have problems*;)*
    Or was it the smilie (":)")? :lol:

  • Hey, it held one of mine too. Admittedly it had spam words in it, but that was the topic. But at least I get to approve my own posts ... <_<

  • Strange, why are there smilies on the palette that don't work. That <_< was supposed to be :left:

  • Here we come again:

    Post held for moderation

    Guess it was spaaam - I had even TWO [](link)s in my post! Definitely it was spam (the links were to other threads in that same section both).

  • Hey, it held one of mine too. Admittedly it had spam words in it, but that was the topic. But at least I get to approve my own posts ...

    Steve, was it an antibaba filter implemented?
    If so, I hope its tuning won't take ages <!-- and kilometres of our nerves -->.

  • How many of those have you seen today? Seen a supplement spammer get through though ...

  • That's another question. Still needs tuning anyway.
