    • 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 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Hello.
    There is currently no way to delete posts. Or rather, the software and programming is buggy so deleting posts can mess with the mainframe. It would require investing in an entirely new program and as PULL is maintained out of pocket, it is not feasible right now. That being said, we are researching avenues and consulting with a programmer but it will be a long process. 
     
    TLDR; we very much agree with you and would love this feature as well and while we are continuously working toward that being a reality someday, it is not in the near foreseeable future.
    That being said, you can report your post and request a moderator/admin to hide your post.
    Thank you.

  19. Shadow added a post in a topic Opinion on posts about minors   

    Hello.
    I would like to first apologize for the trouble I seem to have caused. I legitimately flagged Biscuit as a spammer and did not realize it would hide all of their posts. I thought that flagging as a spammer was the quickest/easiest route to ban the account per the user’s request. I was very clearly mistaken. I did try to unflag them, but it did not seem to unhide any of their posts. As Nyx stated, we're combing through Biscuit's posts and trying to reinstate the important ones first (like threads started).
    I am not nor do I know Biscuit. I have known Nyx for years and I have offered my assistance in an attempt to help her with the site (particularly the backend) as in speaking with her, I know that the site is quite busy.
    I do sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding.
    Edit:
    I have been instructed not to ban accounts asking to be banned anymore. I was unaware that this was the latest rule. Again, I apologize for the confusion and mayhem I have caused.

  20. Shadow added a post in a topic General Venus Angelic Thread #4   

    Hello.
    A friendly reminder to please report derailing comments and to not get involved with derailers since it only fans the flames. We cannot monitor threads and we rely on reports to keep threads clean.
    Please also note, as some new users don’t seem to be aware, while we may not be lolcow, PULL is not, has never been, and will never be a social justice site. While we draw the line at anything that breaks the law, blatant racism, and blatant abelism in terms of types of comments, this is not a site for anyone to come soapbox and try and fight for social justice. We do have rules regarding talking about such things:
    Except for the off-topic discussion boards, do not bring up general controversial issues in threads.
    Don’t talk about politics, religion, race, or social issues except in the off-topic boards. These just derail threads.
     
    Also we have this rule:
     
    14. Don’t troll.
    Being intolerant of other opinions is not acceptable. It is okay to debate, not to argue.
    Do not make personal attacks against other members. We are a family. If you do this, you will no longer be welcome here.
    Do not cause drama for the sake of upsetting other members.
    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.
    Do not white knight.
     
    The rules in their entirety can be found here.

    The rules in their entirety can be found here.
     
    Please also note that even if a comment may be “stupid”, “cringey”, or you simply disagree with/dislike the comment, it does not automatically make it against the rules. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion whether you agree or not and it is important to tolerate people’s differing opinions. We are not, have never been, and will never be a politically correct forum. That being said, we do draw the line at blatant racism, homophobia, and ableism.
     
    We enforce the rules as they are written. Warnings have been given out to those whom it is warranted.
     
    Please, also, do not engage with anyone you think may be a troll. It only serves to derail and clog threads and you could receive a warning. Just report and ignore. All derailing comments have been hidden. In the future, if you absolutely must go off topic, please utilize the spoiler feature.
     
    Also, please allow up to 3 days for reports to be cleared. We are currently very short staffed and are in the midst of attempting to find new mods.
     
    Finally, please note that as we receive multiple reports a day, we are unable to send updates regarding reports. You are welcome to message an admin/mod to follow up, but please do not expect a response otherwise.
     
    Thank you.

    15. Do not make multiple accounts, especially to evade bans.
    Having multiple accounts can look suspicious to mods. 
    If you want your account name changed, message @Nyx.
    If you want to appeal your ban, message @Nyx.
    When in doubt, message @Nyx. Don’t be shy.
     
    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.

    The user in question, ironically claiming that others are sensitive whilst complaining immensely about their downvotes, has been banned. Confirmed that this user has 9 alt accounts.
     
    Hopefully they will get the message and find a healthier hobby.
     
    I have also hidden derailing and off topic comments.
     
    Also, I wanted to note that users will never get a response to reports. We get too many to give every single person an update on their report. You can, however, message a mod to ask the status of the report. Please allow us up to 3 days to handle a report as we are very understaffed right now (hoping to find new mods soon).
     
    Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please carry on.
     
    Thank you.

    Hello.
     
    To provide some clarity regarding speculation on psychological disorders we have this rule:
     
    11. You may speculate about a snowflake’s potential psychiatric disorders. However, if you do, please don’t throw around random illnesses. Give some supporting information. 
     
    Don’t act like an authority on mental illness.
    Don’t say something like “I have X disorder and Y definitely must have it too.” Don’t talk about your own issues in threads about other people.
    You can say things like “given all of these [whatever], she seems like she has BPD/NPD”.
     
    You may view the rules in their entirety here.
     
    We also have a guide on what is considered an “armchair diagnosis” found here.
     
    Please, however, make sure to stay on topic and not derail the thread.
     
    Thank you.
