PM report abuse button

Post by Jalokim on July 22nd 2008, 1:30 pm

This is a suggestion for all forums and especially the help forum.
I am suggesting a report button for PM's. Just like we have a report button for threads we need one for the PM's.

Pm spam has always been a problem and the only way to solve it was to ignore it or ban the members asap. I think the reporting to ban stage takes too long, and before the admins or mods get to know about a spammer or Pm abuser the culprit has already posted 100 abusive Pm's.

I haven't seen this on any other forum, so we could be pioneers with this idea.
I would also like to see a automated version of this feature... what i mean is that the report button has a click limit. For example if the click limit for the report was 50 ... then if 50 different members clicked the report button during a similar time then the spammer would have his Pm disabled automatically... this saves time for the admins.

help support this suggestion, stop private message spam and abuse
thanks

Great idea Jalokim, it is a pain having to PM the message to an administrator.
I voted Yes

Thanks,
Timmy

Jalo, I am in agreement with you. Many many forums, especially the Support forum would benefit from this button. I am getting tired of having to take a screen-shot then PMing a moderator to report PM abuse.

This button would eliminate so much time. Just click the button and you're done. Much quicker than taking a screen-shot, then saving it (if need be), then uploading it etc.

Again, 100% support from me!!! cheers

If the idea of redirecting reports to a moderator forum would actually come through someday, your idea would be perfect.

But even without the redirecting reports idea, your idea of a PM report button is an absolute necessity on Forumotion. Smile

I voted yes.

I voted YES as well, although in my opinion the automatic system is a step too far and could be abused as well. Having a report button there would be very helpful already, but the power to disable a pm box should remain in admin's hands.

Otherwise, a really helpful addition for all forum staffs!

YES!!!
THANK YOU!!
ME AND MY MODS NEED ONE OF THOSE!!!!

Every time we log in, we freaking get 200 spam msg a day.
Is so ignoring that we dont even want to check our mail box anymore.
Even though we warned them like 100 times not to PM Admin or Mods.

And is even great for my members to report it to, if they don't abuse it.

I voted yes. It sounds reasonable and useful. It happened to me that even on Support forum i received advertising for a newb`s forums 2x. Wish i could just press the report button, instead of explaining him a few things.

That is clearly inappropriate!

Why would you need to spam/flame people in their PM box for?
and us users are smart enough to REPORT you if u do spam/flame our inbox, there are rules that say u shouldn't do that type of thing

Then they might report you 0_o and you BOTH get in trouble.So its always best not to turn into a kindergartner again and just report it.

And another wonderful suggestion this time by Jalo!

Love this idea.

I'm not 100% sure what the report button does as of yet I have never had anyone use it.
But for this suggestion can it send the message with the report so you know what the message says.
