I don't think relying on the users to make use of the Report Post button is enough. Especially when it specifically says that the Report Post feature is only to be used for spam and "e-fights". Most users don't care enough to report, or don't even realize when a thread is mis-posted because they only use the "New Posts" link when reading the forum. There should be someone around who does read every single post and will take the initiative to handle things like this as they come up, even if it may seem unimportant or insignificant to the others.

Yup thats exactly what you do....in the message box just write what the issue is (not enough posts to sell...should be in performance section...should be in water cooler....duplicate post....etc etc etc)...

I just went through that whole list from Q in about 10 minutes. This isnt exactly rocket surgery. But for sure nothings going to get done if we dont see the problem and if nobody tells us about it.

Also, this is a perfect example of judgment calls. Some of those things you put Q were (IMO) in an appropriate place on the forum or needed no changes. The 3.5 DIY's we'll have to think about...

I was maybe asking myself why I was editing threads that went back as far as 6 weeks and November 2011, but hey whatever, you guys wanted it done and it got done...

Changing the language on that report post button is easy though. Back in the day when we had way more to do...yeah that button should have been reserved for more important issues. But looking at the way people interact on here now and the types of issues we run into (pretty much that whole list you posted) it seems to me that this is the new job of the button.

Nothing against you. I agree you are an asset to this place and have done a lot of great stuff...I'm just trying to convey that the work here is really light for a moderator. Just because something isn't fixed in real time doens't mean it won't get fixed. And things that are reported are fixed fairly quickly by somebody (not just me) as opposed to the things that will rely on one of us stumbling across it. I think more use of the Report Button is really what we need here. Not another mod to wait around for something to happen. Of course (again) that is just my opinion and experience based on the actual amount of Mod work that I have to do around here....maybe Graeme feels differently...

Besides, nobody should have to read every post on here. Who has that kind of time (or life)?

Me, also. I don't have hardly any mods, but I think the forum mods we have are doing a fine job.
