Hello folks

Something many of you asked over the weeks (ok, years) is coming soon: we will allow users to Report Posts. Every post (topic or reply) will have a REPORT button. You can click that and the post will be put in a queue for moderators to check it. At the same time all moderators will receive an email notification of something new in the queue.

You will know which posts you reported, but other users won't see which posts have been reported by someone else.

We will update the FUG to add words regarding misuse of this new feature as well.

umm. So will users also be able to write a description stating what is wrong with the thread/post or it's just going to be a report button with no description box for users to write in?




Do whatever you want to do man.

Users will be taken to a new page where there's a BIG text area to enter details about the report.

The mods will also send round the heavies to the offenders place to sort them out.

I see many visits to johnr's place.

Time to email Google and ask them to remove the house off Google Earth

Note that this is live now - a "soft" launch. Some tweaks are coming but the main functionality is there now.

Great idea freitasm. The Report button is missing off your and other Moderators Posts - is this a bug? Just kidding!

Oh come on, this has to be a bug. Just to be fair there should be another admin on the site so freitasm has some competition.

To be fully in charge shouldn't it be 'Alpha and Omega Geek' that has even more of a ring of Authority to it - the first and the last.

I see I can't take exception to something I said in an earlier post either as we can't report ourselves. I'll just have to accept that anything I say must be okay.

BTW Keep up the great work. Geekzone is one of my favourite web sites. I always check Geekzone when I buy something new to see what others have said about it.

Meanwhile I'll try not to Report anyone.

Alpha: "In social animals, the alpha is the individual in the community with the highest rank."

Alpha and Omega: "comes from the phrase "I am the alpha and the omega" (Koiné Greek: τὸ Α καὶ τὸ Ω), an appellation of Jesus[1] in the Book of Revelation (verses 1:8, 21:6, and 22:13)."

So I decided to go with the ethology instead of religious meaning of the word...

Damn, how did I miss this? I should have a fake report button there...

Perhaps the first use of Scripture on Geekzone? Che, from his picture will be pleased. Can't understand his Image and post - Must....click.........not.......working.......   Oh, I get it, he has added a Report button!

Here we go, here's one that actually works for that post:



Erm, did I just find a way to report the Alpha Geek? :P
Coming Soon: Greasemonkey script to add a report button to the BDFL!
EDIT: I admit I failed. *Crys*
