    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

  2. Shadow added a post in a topic Won Nation (Yvng Juuggin, Rich Hobo, Sleepy Da Plug)   

    Hello.
    We would like to state that we have received information regarding @spriteandsoju that the user Ocean Drive has been posting about. We have determined that the information and evidence supplied to us is real and I would like to inform users here that Ocean Drive is a very unstable individual and is twisting a narrative that is not true. The evidence we have seen is very unsettling. The user has been permanently removed and his posts hidden. Please disregard everything he has said. He is very unwell.
    As a result I would like to remind users of these rules:
    6.  No vendettas (towards snowflakes or other members).
    19.  Do not intentionally lie about people you are posting about.
    a. Don’t fake screenshots, quotes, or other evidence.
    b. If you are unsure whether or not something is true, don’t claim it as absolute fact.
    c. Don’t accuse people of anything serious without evidence to back it up.
    Thank you.

  4. Shadow added a post in a topic Why is the current Cozykitsune tjread closed.   

    Hello,
    Yes, threads will temporarily be locked when it is moving faster than whoever is tending to multiple reports for the thread. It just so that we are able to play catch up. 

    As soon as we get caught up and made an in thread post, the thread will be unlocked (unless stated otherwise such as pages over 500, thread out of control, etc.)
    I hope this answers your question.
    Thank you.

  5. Shadow added a post in a topic Pokimane   

    Hello.
    Being that this is the 3rd time I am having to jump in this thread as a result of reports of the same rules I have already stated still being violated, this thread is being temporarily locked as it is getting out of control.
    Please do understand that it is currently just me, Nyx, and one other mod handling the entire site right now. We are doing our best to keep up with reports and thread management and we are currently undergoing interviews for new mods. Please have patience with us.
    Normally threads should be locked at 500 pages and a new thread started.
    I would like to request a volunteer or two to step up and please make a summary of this thread and Pokimane up to date and submit a new thread for approval. Please review the “New Topic Guidelines” thread located here. 
     
    Until that time, this thread is being locked until further notice. We simply do not have the time or manpower right now to monitor this thread individually.
    Thank you to those of you who have been following the rules and I am sorry that the actions of few have made it come to this point. We only ever ask that people follow the rules. If you can’t follow them, then don’t be here.
    Thank you.

  6. Shadow added a post in a topic Simply_Kenna/Cozykitsune [Thread 7]   

    Hello.
    Please note that we have the following rules:
    7.  No derailing.
    a. Excessive personal interjections and personal stories, unless in a general thread, are not allowed.
    b. Be polite. Debate about a snowflake is encouraged, attacking another user is not ok. You can disagree with or criticize what other users say, but do not attack others.
    14.  Don’t troll.
    a. Being intolerant of other opinions is not acceptable. It is okay to debate, not to argue.
    b. Do not make personal attacks against other members. We are a family. If you do this, you will no longer be welcome here.
    c. Do not cause drama for the sake of upsetting other members.
    d. Do not come to the board just to tell us we’re all terrible. Making a post like “YOU’RE ALL MEAN LEAVE THIS GIRL ALONE” will get you automatically banned.
    e. Do not white knight.
    If you’re going in circles “I’m right” “No, I’m right”, take it to DM’s because it is no longer a conversation and just derails the thread.
    Whether you agree with someone’s opinion or not, everyone is allowed their own opinion and policing people will not be tolerated. 
     
    The rules in their entirety can be found here. Please review and follow them.
    Please, if you find any posts in violation of the rules, please report. You can look at the most recent announcement to find out exactly what we expect from reports and how to report.
    Thank you.

    Hello again.
    As I promised, I am reporting back. The good news is that this is a changeable setting! As it turns out, the time limit for merged posts was set to 30 minutes. I have lowered it to 10 minutes. We will give that a try and see how people feel about that. I will update this in the site changes thread.
    Thank you.

    The behavior in this thread is unacceptable. Whether someone is being annoying or not, do not attack each other with insults. We expect users to behave like civil adults. If you cannot get your point across without resorting to insults, then you don't belong here. 
    Do not engage in in-fighting which only derails the thread. Just report and cite which rules you believe the user/post is violating. Take personal arguments to DM's.
    All derailing comments have been hidden.
    You may find the rules in their entirety here. Please review them.
    Further violation of site rules will result in further warnings and potential bans.
    Be civil. Follow the rules.

     8.  Except for the off-topic discussion boards, do not bring up general controversial issues in threads.
    a. Don’t talk about politics, religion, race, or social issues except in the off-topic boards. These just derail threads.
    9.  No reputation / vote manipulation.
    a. Do not downvote people because you dislike them.
    b. Do not manipulate votes. If you do this, it will be obvious and you will be permanently banned.
    c. Do not complain about being downvoted. If you believe someone is engaging in vote manipulation against you, contact staff privately and we will look into it. Otherwise, just accept your downvotes.
    14.  Don’t troll.

    Warnings have been issued and all derailing comments have been hidden. Further violation of the rules after said warnings will result in bans. I prefer not to ban so please do not give me a reason to do so.
    If you are getting into an argument, please take it to DM's.
    You can find the rules in their entirety here. Please review them.
    Also, when reporting, please do not make blank reports and please cite exactly which rule you believe the user/post is violating. It makes our job much more efficient.
    Thank you.

  13. Shadow added a post in a topic The option to unmerge consecutive posts   

    Hello.
    The merge happens if you’re posting within a certain window. I am uncertain of what that window is (I want to say ~10 minutes or so but that is purely a guess). 
    I will poke around in the software settings to see if this is something that can be changed, but I don’t think that it is. If they are, I will report back.
    Nevertheless, we are shopping around for possible replacement software but it will be quite some time until/if that happens as these programs are quite expensive. But we will keep your suggestion should we change programs.
     Thank you.

  14. Shadow added a post in a topic How to delete post?   

    We would prefer users not do this as it ends up just leaving a blank post and makes the threads look messy. Please in the future, simply report your own posts with the request to hide it. If we come accross posts edited down to just “.”, we will end up hiding it anyway so it is just more efficient to report.
     
    Thank you.
