Hey UG-ers. I had a thought.

It seems like every thread I read gets reported for some pointless reason. Why is each user in such a rush to report each other? Sometimes I can understand it but usually it's just some jerk posting his/her rude thoughts. It doesn't bother anyone. I hate spammers as much as the next guy but this is getting ridiculous.

Oh, and please don't report this. It's just a thought. I don't mean to be a jerk.

I got reported once for having a link to ebay on a post...UG is growing more and more totaliterian by the minute!

sometimes there is a valid reason such as there being a thread on exactly the same topic, or the post is just ridiculous and sometimes its because people are just assholes and like abusing the report button

I just succumbed to the report fad..
*sigh.*
Not on this thread however.
I've never been reported and been told.
And I've only reported twice, for stupid ass reasons.
You have some good points.
But eh, maturity is a bitch eh?

People are so quick to report becuase people are equally as quick to create stupid threads.

I can understand closing spam threads out side of the Pit but anything should go in here, isnt that the point of the pit???

But its the job of the mods and staff to manage the forums, you just look like a bit of a tit for reporting your fellow man. It should be a community something it is becoming less and less.

It's only recently started...it probably happens when we have a noob-surge like we just had, people trying to seem like "good UGers" or just being annoying for annoyance's sake.

If there's a duplicate thread it gets reported. If it's a thread with no purpose (spam), ie. "i liek mudkipz lol", it gets reported. If it's a hate-fueled thread, pointing at specific groups, it gets reported. This is how things work. If these threads were left open then there'd be no actual discussions in the Pit and it'd just turn into a lame /b/ style place, where people post non-sensical bullsh*t for no apparent reason.

You've got to remember that with the amount of people frequenting these forums that in a day without mods the place'd go tits up (anyone remember when that happened?). Quit your whining. If you don't like your threads being closed, stop making pointless threads. There's a different between funny and plain pointless.

I agree. Save your bullshit for MySpace bulletins.

the link you click to come in the pit says and i quote "The forum for all general discussion that is not covered by other forums, from music issues to whatever" so in my opinion(<---------------don't hate me for it) the only things that should be closed are spam threads and nothing else i can think of at this time

I don't think it's the reporting of threads that bothers me as much as it is the need of so many people to declare that they've *reported* it.
