if a post was reported, but the offence was really minor and no action deemed necessary, will the red "reported" status turn back to  normal blue?

actually i made a few reports. 1 concern a garage sales thread selling ahem games openly. the thread is still there, so i'm wondering if i reported wrong, or the offence is allowed or the reported post hasn't been examined yet.

you didn't do reporting, but someone else did. biggrin.gif

nothing weird at all - you WILL see the threads that were reported. wink.gif

there was a quad post on that, based on the report submitted.

yes, i've seen some claims of pirated games but the thread itself has insufficient proof to warrant any action to be taken.

as if the thread lacking evidence was bad enough, these reports usually just say "pirated games" or something like that but no proof or anything. sad.gif so such cases, no action taken.

Sometimes it may take some time for action to be taken. We don't have Admins on 24hr stand by. And sometimes investigations take time too.

But rest assured that if a post is reported, we Mods are not able to ignore it. wink.gif

yes. and also the fact that even if some mods noticed it, they could still be limited as some threads / post reported are in sections that are beyond their jurisdiction.

mayb this is abit off-topic, but heck, might as well ask around.

this issue is related to torrent downloads of iso files, i think. a few months ago, i was posting heavily on NFSC official thread. as usual, there will be n00bs asking around questions like "hey, anybody has the link for the torrent?" or like "hey, i cant open the file. anybody has the password?". i replied their posts with links to TSB's NFSC page, where users can pre-order the original. however, i was warned by a mod, with a 10%, to talk about illegal/pirated stuff.

not that 10% is a big deal, i like the 10% look, but i just wanted justice. i'm helping out with providing the links and yet i get warned. does this show that the "reported" button is mis-used? or that the mods are not doing a good job in digging out the "truth"?

Sometimes, we make mistakes. You should have PMed the mod in question, and if that fails PM an admin.

As a gesture of goodwill to you, I have removed your warning.

It's quite easy to track down the reporter, especially when the subforum isn't heavyly occupied. Just look for the recent poster. I'm quite hesitant on reporting certain posts containing discussions of pirated ROMs.

Most Malaysian support piracy and they will flame me to mars if they find out that I'm reporting their posts. sad.gif

That's not entirely true. Many reports I have attended to are reported by users who do not even post in the thread. And you have our assurance that reporters are kept strictly confidential. For all they know, a Mod could have reported them in.

Please don't be afraid to use the Report button.

yup. in fact most of the time it's not the last poster.

a wise person would just report it and ignore the thread. smile.gif

Yes, due to the number of paranoid members we have, i've decided that the red reported button seems to have created more problems then solutions, and hence it has been discontinued.
