Can you view how useful your moderator reports are somehow?
« on: October 26, 2016, 06:51:10 AM »
I report a fair number of posts, primarily for either blatant spam or blatant trolling.

I am unaware of any way to easily see whether a large number of my reports are useful or not. Or whether they are actioned.

Is this possible somehow? Many other sites I either moderate/participate on have the ability to see aggregated "results" of your flags/reports to better guide your actions, but I am not able to see such a view here.

Can you see if you have ever been reported?

Never gotten a message but I think people get mad at things I say.


Ender, I am guessing this would be more work for an moderator. If that is the case I would vote to just let it be as is.

I am not aware of that feature on this forum software, no.

If you have a question about a particular report, just ask.

You can check later on the posts--blatant spam should be deleted, blatant trolling should be edited. Sometimes it's not, and people will get warnings, but often it will be directly edited.  It may take a few days, depending on how busy the mods are in their personal life.  But we have active, open reports... mods have to look at, and actively close them, they can't just be "missed" or something like that.
