Ok, so today I'm today on my forums, and some mong posts this thread:

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=843452

So I report it. Ok, I'm a bit more verbose than need be doing it, but it's a forum user's responsibility to get rid of spam.

What I want to is why some of you seem to have such a thing against people reporting threads that are quite clearly made because someone has too much time on their hands (cough...).

inb4 Reported, btw.

so basically you're all pissy because people got mad at you for reporting something. maybe if you didn't say "i love doing this" beforehand, they wouldn't have had so much fun with it.

That what actually an inside joke on another forum in a galaxy far far away. I was seeing if there were any users of that said forum here on UG. You sir did not get the joke, don't be an asshat.

There's a report button for a reason.

I think flaming somebody for reporting should be a warnable offense.

*smacks forehead* I'm not being a little bitch about it, today was just the icing on the cake. There's far too much angst gets put across to UG users who do the sensible thing.

I like the guys who think reporting is just writing *reported* but don't actually report or all the n00bs that flame people for reporting.

We should report people for flaming people who report threads. They'd love that.

You did for posting a spam thread.

So why act all idiotic and say "I love posting saying I reported this thread"?

Doing it is enough.

Did I ever say he broke a rule? no. And immature? that's a low and unjustified statement. I'm so sick of these "holier than thou" UGers.

I would hardly call me saying "I love doing this" acting 'all idiotic'. It was sarcasm, saying that spam threads are annoying. You'll realise we get a lot of them as you spend a bit more than a few days here.

If you get mad about having a spam thread reported, than you are immature.

Fact.

Well, you do, seeing as it's a warnable offence to post in a reported thread.

Ooh, a thinly veiled barb at my registration date. I feel so sad.

I've been here for the best part of three years but never felt the need to register until recently.

And I suggest you grasp how to convey sarcasm in text before attempting again.

Yes they do.

It lets people know that the thread has been reported and not to post.

To me it would make more sense to report it and not post anything in the thread. Then the thread would slowly sink to the bottom and disappear on its own.


Edit: Also some people report things that do not need reported.

I'm not mad that he reported it, but as everyone else has pointed out, he did it in a very bitchy and douche bag-ish manor.

If you don't like the thread, leave it.


Do me a favour ok.
Try and go one day without reporting something.
Seriously try it.
It might turn out you like not reporting people for useless, little, petty ****.

Reporting is perfaectly fine.However posting *reported* is comepletely uneccicary and is also spam.

ive only ever reported one post and i only did that because it was in a thread that i made


reporting posts is stupid. the mods will get around to it all sooner or later, but you get other people in trouble too. i have a warning at the moment. what for? posting in a reported thread.

these days, what thread isnt reported? when it all boils down to it, i got my warning because a mod decided that one person yelling *reported* was right, but in countless other threads, that person is wrong, and people dont get in trouble for posting afterwards.

i really, really hate it when people report things. even threads that are 100% spam. mods know if its spam - dont bug everyone else because you do too.

The rules say you post in the thread so that it only gets reported once. Otherwise the mods end up with 20 emails each instead of just one.

The point of posting *reported* is so other people don't post in a reported thread...

- If the opening post of a thread is spam, then that thread will be considered a 'spam thread'.
Any posts made in a spam thread (other than to notify everyone that the thread has been reported) will be considered spam, regardless of the content of the posts.

They should know not to post in it anyway.If theres any misconseption weather or not the thread should be reported people should not report purely for the sake of doing so.

What if you post just after someone else has posted "reported", before getting a chance to see it? Do you still get a warning?

I guess that makes sense but it is hit and miss thing. I am currrently warned for posting in a reported thread.

Maybe their should be an action that normal users could do to mark a thread as spam (like youtube comments) then when a mod sees that a thread is marked as spam they can handle it in the appropiate manner.

I have a warning too for the same thing. We broke the rules, get over it.

With the amount of threads posted, it's impossible for the mods to deal with everything. Reporting posts brings the important things to their attention.

these days, what thread isnt reported? when it all boils down to it, i got my warning because a mod decided that one person yelling *reported* was right, but in countless other threads, that person is wrong, and people dont get in trouble for posting afterwards.
The mods opinion is what matters. If the mod desides he/she was wrong, they'll take the warning away. I doubt that ever happens.

i really, really hate it when people report things. even threads that are 100% spam. mods know if its spam - dont bug everyone else because you do too.
Again mods can't be everywhere at once.

There's logical reason to hate reporting.
