    • 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.

The option to unmerge consecutive posts

i would like if we got the option to unmerge consecutive posts. sometimes i want my posts making two different points and not turn into one long essay. i get why it's automatically merged, and i agree, maybe it SHOULD be automatic so people don't spam up a thread.

but maybe.. give us the option to edit and unmerge them. :alpacaheadshake:

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.

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.
