When you flag someone you can report them if they are doing something wrong.
Also, if you want to get a Mod's attention on a certain post you can flag it.
Hope I helped.

From FAQ. Located here- Webkinz Insider Forum - FAQ: How do I post, PM, take screenshots, report, change thread titles, etc?

How do I report a post?

Reporting a post

vBulletin has a great way to report posts and bring them to our attention. You've probably seen it a hundred times, but never really paid attention. It's the "red flag" below people's names on each post. If you see a post that doesn't follow the rules, click that red flag, fill out the reason and click send.

Here is a picture of the flag:
Click the image to open in full size.

This will alert whatever mod or admin that is on and we can get to it as quickly as possible. This works much better than PM'ing a mod or admin, as anyone can pick up the "ticket" and get to work!

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS FOR ANY OTHER REASON, IT IS ONLY FOR REPORTING POSTS THAT DON'T FOLLOW THE RULES!!

can we use the flag to let mods know of something new? Like a new pet adopted?

The above quote actually is not Mickey's but comes from the FAQ in wi. Thanks Mickey for putting the FAQ info in your post. It is helpful information.

That particular phrase from the FAQ's seems just a little confusing to me as well. I understand that this is the primary purpose of the using a flag, and that forum members should be very cautious about using the reporting tool for any other purpose.

However, it was my understanding is that it you also can use the flags to:

1) request that a thread be closed
2) request that a thread be reopened
3) notify a moderator that a recipe has been newly solved

Thanks in advance for letting me know if this is incorrect.

You are correct on all of these. The flag is NOT just for reporting inappropriate behavior or posting. It is a useful tool that helps bring something to the attention of staff, good or bad.

There are also a lot of people who have to flag their own threads for help in updating titles that we are unable to do on our own due to glitches here on WI.

Yes, flagging some one is reporting them. If somebody is saying things that aren't supposed to be said on here like personal information or saying mean things, you should 'flag' there post.

You may also flag a post to get a new pet adoption on the front page if you are the first WI member to adopt it.
