Hi folks, the "Report to moderator" function was an excellent addition ... as a first step.
I believe it would be beneficial to expand it to include a dropdown on the confirmation page to indicate the reason the report is being made (spam is not the only reason to report a post IMHO). For example:
- Duplicate/cross post
- Wrong forum
- Inappropriate content (as in language or personal attack)
I think this could benefit both mods (they know exactly what they are looking for) and users (minimise cross posts for readers and therefore, minimise the dilution of resolutions to a given issue across multiple forums, and have errant posts moved to the correct forum where they have a better chance of a fast response).
