Members--learn to use the 'report' button


The report button sends an alert to the moderators

Use this button to report--

Spam
Trolls
Double posts
nasty behavior or a fight starting
wrong category ( paint question in electrical forum,for example)

If you think we need to be aware of something --right now--this will get our attention,

The alert button is the red dot with ! in the center---

As always--We really appreciate the help---we rely on our members to help keep the site in order---Mike----

What the members should understand -
Using the "report-button" is not automatically, punitive.
It's information for the moderators to determine if action should be taken.
I've used it a few times.

The report button is also NOT to report minor discussions, that spin-off into a "disagreement".

This is an Internet Forum. There are many different members, with many different viewpoints, from many walks of life = with various opinions. We all need to extend some courteousy and respect for eachother.

Sometimes members don't word their responses quite right, or exactly the way you may want. Thats what happens in the real world, and its not always a reason to hit the report button.

We ask that members attempt to work things out on their own - as adults, by PM (Private Messaging), if/when at all possible, rather than immediately running to the Moderators.
Example; Sometimes a "spat", or, a slight tone of rudeness, can simply be about a missunderstanding, or, someone a having a bad day.

Also, recognize that sarcasm - is not always a "personal attack".

Last, (related to the above points): When in doubt = Always take the High Road.....

Well, the "lights are on" - but, nobody is home!
We're across the room and can't reach the keyboard!
We can't get there from here!!

I don't know about that!
They might be sitting around the "DIY" headquarters -
trying to determine the next venue for the corporate meeting -
to determine where this year's meeting is going to take place.
Tahiti, Hawaii, Bali, the Bahamas?!?

Also, with the millions they've racked in -
How to determine the size of their substantial bonuses!
(It is coming up to the end of the year!)

Good to know about the "in the wronge forum" thing.
There was one last night that looked suspicious and may have been better placed in the Introductions section.
I see It has been handles. Thanks.

Hey If we're helping out does that mean we can get a % of the millions you guys make?

Yeah buddy, the check is in the mail.

We usually stop 98% of the spammers before they get to the forum, but it is the help of you guys reporting them, when they sneak through, that gets the rest of them. We do appreciate all your help in all situations.

You guys get better benefits than I do over at the Craft Forum. I have to buy my own donuts. But the company car makes up for it.

Driver? I don't get a driver. But they paid for my 10 week vacatio.... um, I mean, business trip to Europe - 8 times so far this year (that's 80 weeks!).

Sorry to hear you don't have a driver on Saturdays. Life can be so unfair sometimes.
