Reporting: "Wrong forum"





LukeakaDanish
Hi all,

I think it would be useful to have a "posted in the wrong forum" option when reporting both topics and posts.

Wouldn't that be classified as "Accident." I mean if you explain it in the textbox I am pretty sure the mod/admin would understand.

Yea thats what I usually do, but the description of "accident" doesn't really imply "wrong forum".

Perhaps all that needs changing is the description of "accident"

^Ah, but isn't the only kind of accident.

I'd say a wrong forum option would be good. That's one of the most common things that needs to be reported anyway.

Us mods generally are able to tell for ourselves though.

But surely having it as a choice would help to speed up the process, thereby making your job easier.

Moderators may be superhuman, but even they miss things.

hmmm yeah the difference between:
accident:Wrong Forum
and
Wrong forum: some description

really would speed up the process

I simply meant that it would be easier for mods to find threads in the wrong forum because they would already have been flagged by normal users, which would be quicker for them than having to view each thread individually.

just use the report topic function, the type of report doesn't really matter if you give a good (and short) description. I'll post a screenshot of how it's displayed later.

Wrong section would be a good idea....


Though I never post in the wrong forum because I'm smar-*shot*

Not a huge difference between the type and description.
