A threads in the wrong forum,
or
someone has posted against the T&C,
or
someone is trolling,
or
etc etc.

Well, at the top of every page is an ALERT button.

Use it, explain your reasoning and let the excellent mods deal with it, whatever it is.

Why derail a thread just because YOU think it's in the wrong place?

Why tell someone they have posted against the T&C?

Why feed a troll?

The list goes on...

The point is, that by bringing things up in a thread, rather than use the proper channels, it's just as bad as someone trolling, because then someone replies to the post about thread, T&C, troll, and before you know it, a perfectly good thread has gone down the wrong road, and is ruined for those enjoying the discussion.

So if you care at all, use the alert button and let the mods sort it out - if not, then you're as bad as the trolls, because nothing derails a thread quicker than some bullplop doled out by a member self appointing themselves the thread police.

Very sound advice budski. I have alerted the mods to this nonsense that you have created here. Hopefully retribution will be swift. Just kidding my friend! A very good reminder for everyone that you have posted.

Are you sure about that. Someone notorious for doing exactly those things was made a mod.

Also use the drop down menu in a members profile if you think something is wrong or out of line.

This is how we help us help ourselves, by helping the mods.

Well if we all would do that.... I guess there will be new mods necessary.


They will be to busy reading the complaints. Something with bureaucracy... Before you know it you need to request a form to complaint and turn it in signed in three fold and a delay of a year for an answer.

Good idea.

Seriously it is.

Looks for "Alert" button...


But seriously, the above point works like magic if followed although it's difficult at times to get involved personally, the best advice is as budski says; lets the mods deal with any issues.
