Default It's okay to report people!

I'd like the people that don't know this to realize this:
It's okay to report people.

I must admit, I hesitate sometimes before reporting someone, but I know that it helps the staff to be aware of what's going wrong. If the person posts their age or phone number or something like that, and you report them, it doesn't mean they will get in trouble. It means you are HELPING them! You're doing them a favor! No one wants their personal information shared on the internet but sometimes we slip and forget.

Also, sometimes you don't know if something is really wrong. It's better to report the post (or whatever it is, anyway) to let the staff know and leave it to them to decide if it should be dealt with or if it isn't really a problem. You won't be in trouble for reporting something that you thought needs to be handled but really doesn't! You were helping the staff, you were doing the right thing.

Please know, also, that the flag button doesn't always need to be used for bad posts. If a person discovered something new and important, you may want to flag it for the staff to see.

Please keep this in mind.

I agree 100%!
What happens if you don't report someone because you are too scared or nervous to do so? Then they will just keep on doing what they did and never learn right from wrong. Personal info is definitely not good on places like this, so if someone posts that stuff it should be reported immediately!
This is a great thread, Ave! Awesome job.

Default Re: It's okay to report people!

I agree! I mean you shouldn't report people becasue they disagreed with your opinion but if they post personal info, you are helping them! Becasue when you post your phone mumber you're almost telling where you live becasue of the area code.

Thanks for the thread Ave! It's a good reminder that reporting can just be a way to help protect people. And I never thought about flagging something that might be a good item for the news and announcements. I'll keep that in mind!

Default Re: It's okay to report people!

this is really a thread that a lot of people need to read! i know sometimes we don't want to feel like the "bad guy," but in the end, it really pays off. it could even save that person from getting banned because they continue to do something they did not know was bad. awesome reminder, ave. rep!

Default Re: It's okay to report people!

Awesome point! Some people are just too soft! Or don't really care. They may think that the person they report will hate them. But don't just be that person, who shoots first, asks questions later, or you may have consequences. You don't want to get in trouble now, do you? Totally true, a thread will be like five pages in, and it may still have personal info, because nobody wanted to report it. Have a fantastical day!

Thank-you for the great reminder! I had to report someone just today.. you need to report them, or they'll continue to make trouble for you.

I agree! You shouldn't tell them though, unless it's for a good cause.

Default Re: It's okay to report people!

thanks for reminding everyone, Ave. i mostly have to report threads for small things, like someone posting a thread in the wrong section. i use the report button to help, not hurt, other people. a lot of times, it is just a simple mistake, but if the mods don't see it, it could develope into a bigger problem. it could even save someone from getting banned or into trouble with the staff, because if they are not stopped when they begin to do something wrong, then they could keep doing it, and things could get out of hand.
