[FORUM] Need to confirm "Report Post"

Post by Caligari87 »

The "Report to mod" button needs to have a confirmation dialogue. I just reported cutmanmike's post at the top of this page. :oops: It was an accident (duh), but made me think "why didn't it ask me if I was sure?"

I know this is trivial, but it torqued me a little. I feel stupid now, partially because I should, but partially because the forum didn't give me a chance to recant.

Umm, you realize that after you report a post, it's replaced with "Remove report," allowing you to undo your mistake?

Or you can just leave it if you make a mistake. You know Bio and QB love to deal with mistaken reports. Then again now that you posted this thread they know whos responsible for that one, so you may want to remove it, as a way of avoiding their wrath (I personally would leave it though, because that makes their jobs more fun, and I quit trying to avoid the "SHUT UP" and "BE NICE" messages pretty quick).

Just in case anyone wonders, when you report a post, I know:

Stuff Reported
  • Address of the reported post
  • Author of the reported post
  • Title of the containing topic
  • What forum the thread is in
  • The person who reported the post

Well, paint me blue and shave my head. Shows how much I pay attention.

Yep, I was afraid of that.

Do you have any idea how many people "accidentally" report posts?
Well, actually I think the people here easily anger over petty dissagreements and report anything that makes them think--even for a moment--"I disagree".

I end up ignoring 4 out of 5 reports because so few are actually worth my time.

There was a good stretch of 4 days where nobody reported anything... I had high hopes...
