Default Unanswered: Quick Question about Reporting : )

I was wondering, should I report people when I see them doing this:

Cool! *tenletterrule*

I totally think I should. It's spam and they created the ten letter rule for a reason.

Can someone answer this please? Because .. Well, yeah. I wanna know so I don't keep bothering the mods by possibly reporting something that doesn't need to be reported.

YOU GET IT.. xD

Thanks a lot!

I think that maybe it depends on the case? I can see how it is spam in a way, but in some circumstances I suppose it is warranted. I'm going to wait and see what a mod says!

If they are saying "thanks" for help that was offered, I don't really think that kind of thing needs to be flagged. While it would be nice to have them say a little more, like even "Thanks for the help" (meeting the requirements of the ten letter rule) I wouldn't really consider that spam. At least by posting Thanks, they are being courteous.

An appropriate time to flag/report a post is when you see an age posted, rudeness, inappropriate behavior, something that you think may be highly newsworthy...

It's great that you are looking out for the integrity of WI

Default Re: Quick Question about Reporting : )

I think it depends on the situation I think its good to thank someone for there help so I don't see problem with putting up a "Thanks" but it wouldn't take much to say "Thanks to all" or "Thanks for answering everyone" and this would get around the ten letter rule, but in general I dont think reporting someone for being polite is the best thing but if they are posting Thanks fter every anwser it could get a bit much.....

I hope this helps you decide.

Thanks guys : ) !

I'll change it from Thanks up above. I like it when people say thanks, I just think that the whole tenletterule thing is silly.

I'll put it to cool.

Rep for all of you! Thanks a lot.

Default Re: Quick Question about Reporting : )

In a nice way (like Thanks), I guess. I don't know, so why don't you PM a moderator? They might be able to give you the answer.

I think they may just be trying to be funny- not rude- so I think I wouldn't report it.
It is very cool that you are looking out for WI- making it a better place-
Thanks for caring- it is one of the reasons I love WI so much

Default Re: Quick Question about Reporting : )

If they are responding to something in a positive way it should be okay to respond as such.
If they are being mean or rude then reporting someone is warranted.

I would be glad that they took the time to respond.....not just read over what you wrote and exit the thread. Sometomes something might just be cool !!

Thanks a lot for posting! So I guess I shouldn't report.. But then why did they make the ten letter rule if it's not being enforced?

Really it is being enforced by the system - your post will not actually be 'posted' if it is too short.
Basically the 10 letter rule forces you to type 10 digits. It does prevent people from just posting an "OK' or something short like that.

It would be nice if everyone used the 10 digits to actually make a comment though
