    As I'm sure you're well aware, sites aren't free to run and so we run leaderboard adverts to fund the site. These ads are often specific game ones run by Sega etc.
    To make sure we get relevant ads as much as possible, could you fill out this survey my ad network is running? It's 100% anonymous and will just help us keep relevant ads on the site
    https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8GL2ZTK
    It's open til April 3rd
    Thanks :)

    This is very informative, but as the OP is so old, the image at the bottom can no longer be seen. Can this please be updated for convenience, as I'd really like to take full advantage of the post.

    Read the first post.. You have to use the Triangle icon at the top of the offending item.

    Staff who are be able to remove it don't get the message if you post in here. Stafff who have got the message usually can't do much about it.

    If you put Spam bot, the staff there should remove it soon.

    I've reported a few people, the last one being to do with providing links to porn.

    Is there any way to retrieve reports? I accidentally sent one, and I can see myself getting in trouble for this.

    Great, Just another thread on Banning more people -.-
    You people like to take your rules a little too seriously...

    It's just a guide on how to report, and what happens when you report. That's all. Nothing to do with 'banning more people' or taking the rules 'too seriously'.

    If we didn't have some seriousness about the rules, this place would
    be overrun with spam and awful posts in places that they don't belong.
    Besides, this thread is more about letting you know that there's a way
    to contact us about bad threads/offensive posts/etc.

    Not to butt in where I may or may not belong, but if you're uncomfortable with it, then why don't you try a different community where things are run a little more to your liking? It's not like SPPf's the only board in this fandom, after all. The others are pretty much a quick Google search away. And that's if you don't just start up a board for you and your friends. That seems to work out for some people too.

    Otherwise, I kinda have to say I appreciate this guide myself. While I know how a report's submitted and all, I know a lot of other people don't, so it's actually sort of cool that they went out of their way to explain how the whole thing works so the ordinary folks can get a mental handle on why a mod might not respond super-quickly or such.

    Excatly. You know the reason that exists? That's because here there's no RECaptcha, and now we're filled with spambots.

    Are reports anonymous?
     
  14. Nutter t.KK

    Nutter t.KK can Mega Evolve!

    No, but only staff can read them.
     
  15. Zibdas

    So if you report someone, they receive the infraction or whatever, it doesn't say who reported?

    No, it wont say who reported you.
     
  17. Nutter t.KK

    No, we avoid mentioning names unless the situation calls for it, even then it may not even be the person reporting it.

    The Staff still have decide if the post is worth a infraction and which one to apply. All you do is point us in a direction that you think we need to take a look at.

    The main thing we use the names on the report is to know who sent the message, if we find out it was false or intentionally to try to ban another person. We also use it to help us consider new staff.

    If you use report function, we'll have a look at it. I just checked you VM wall, at best a Minor offence if any. I can't see your PMs ever. You must report PMs, so a SMOD or Admin can look at them.
