Suggestion about the new reporting system.





ocalhoun
I hear that soon we will have a report button to report bad posts to the moderators. You may already be including this, but here's my suggestion:
That you include a reason for reporting form that would look like such:

Reason you are reporting this post to the moderators:
[_] It is spam
[_] It is not the right language for this section of the forums
[_] It is a copy-paste job
[_] It does not follow the rules of this particular forum
[_] It is offensive (pornographic)
[_] It is a flame post
[_] The signature is against the rules
[_] The avatar is against the rules
[_] User is a suspected spam-bot
[_] Other: [_____________________________]

[submit] [cancel]

Naturally, there would probably also be other reasons I haven't thought of, this is just for an example. One should also be able to select multiple reasons.
This form would appear once a user clicks the report button (in a pop-up or a new page), so it would not clutter anything up.
Using something like this could make the moderators' jobs easier, as they wouldn't have to figure out what was wrong with a post after it was reported, also, if a user can select multiple reasons, it would cut down or eliminate multiple reports per post per user.

Good idea, it needs to be specific so the mod's know what they are looking for in the post.

Indeed; it should have been posted as a new topic 'cause its a suggestion.

Very good point.

When will this reporting thing be online? Is it really necessary? People report posts, the mods usually notice them anyway and shouldn't FrihBot be on the hunt for suspect posts anyway? Or does it only detect spam? Is the community reporting enough posts causing for an easier way for us lazy guys to report posts?

Somehow, I suspect that Bondings & co. will take the easy road out and just install this mod or one that is similar rather than set one up from scratch. That way, they have a button far faster than they would otherwise and it'll be less likely to do unspeakable things to the database.

Of course, that's just my thought.

The reporting system should have been there already, it's just that I didn't have any time at all to code it last month.

@ocalhoun, good suggestions - most of them are the same as I already planned and a few things I didn't think of. Very Happy

It will be to report both posts and users, and yes with multiple reasons possible - also with a comments field.

@Dark_Tiger, the phpbb report mods currently available lack a lot of features, are also bloated with other useless features and don't integrate as well as self-made modifications.

It's also not that much work to code as it's pretty similar to the AWITS system. And a lot of phpbb mods are very poorly designed regarding database queries/performance and not suited for big forums like Frihost.

Bondings, if you need any coding help, let me know.

I like the suggestions.

mod note - I have edited posts where needed/completely removed replies that were flam-ish, backseat moderating-ish, and other such things. Please lets only talk about the suggestion and try not to "big up" to one another. There is a time and place for such a thing, and it surely shouldn't be over the net Wink

You could have it like where you can mark as many boxes that apply like on a sign up php forum. Plus it would make my life a lot easier. And the thing you pick could be in the pm title of the post. Just another little suggestion.
