The report button

Dear Community,


in a last few weeks we have noticed that some of you are using the report button for no reason.

The report button is a tool to be used to alert moderators if they missed something.

This function should only be used for the following reasons:
Spam or other unsolicited advertisement, inappropriate content or other material of an offensive nature (ie: racism, vulgarity, aggressiveness, discrimination or sexism)

Do not report posts of another user just because you do not like them, the moderators are not your personal army.

ABUSE of the report button will lead in a warning or in some cases a ban. When using the report function, please provide an explanation of why the post was reported rather than just which rule you think it violates.


Kind regards, your RoM Team

Attention Community:

Lately there has been an huge increase in false reports using the report button again, the report button is not there for you to report a User's post because you may not agree with them or because you do not like that User.

The Report button should 'ONLY' be used if a Moderator missed a post of the following criteria:
Spam or other unsolicited advertisement, inappropriate content or other material of an offensive nature (ie: racism, vulgarity, aggressiveness, discrimination or sexism)


Again, DO NOT use the report button unless it meets the criteria above!
  • Do not report a post because -- it is "Off-topic"
  • Do not report a post because -- it is a "Troll post"
  • Do not report a post because -- it is "A wall of text"
  • Do not report a post because -- it does not "agree with everyone else"
  • Do not report a post because -- you "do not agree with it"
  • Do not report a post because -- you "do not like the poster"
  • Do not report a post because -- you "think the poster is wrong"
  • Do not report a post because -- it has "grammar or spelling errors"


Moderators are actively monitoring posts, if a Moderator feels that a post should be edited or removed then that Moderator will take the action they feel is appropriate. A post will not be edited or removed simply because someone decided to report it.

ABUSE of the report button will lead in a warning or in some cases a ban. When using the report function, please provide an explanation of why the post was reported rather than just which rule you think it violates.
This will now be enforced more strictly! Users that intentionally make false reports will only receive 1 Warning.

After a Warning has been issued the next intentional false report made by the same User, will earn that User a forum ban. (length of the ban will be decided by the Moderator that reviews the false report).

The Report button is not a toy and it is certainly not there so that someone can simply add blue text to another User's post!

If you would like to draw our attention to a specific post then please do it via "Private Message on the Forum" or via "Private Message on IRC".

Thank You, Your RoM Team
