PostPosted: Sat Apr 11, 2009 8:40 pm    Post subject: Report violations, duplicates, misplaced posts, etc. Reply with quote

This will allow an easy method of contacting all moderators at one time.
  • Users:
    • If you spot what you believe to be a duplicate post, please post a link to it here. In addition, include a link to what is being duplicated.
    • If you find a post you think belongs in a different forum, let us know.
    • Avoid multiple reports of spam:
      • If a user's posts are all spam, report the user, not the posts.
      • Review this thread after submitting a report. Please delete your report if someone beat you to the punch.
    • Any other post that you think requires moderation (violations of Guidelines, broken BBcode, etc.).

  • Moderators:
    • Please delete posts after you've addressed them.
Thanks in advance.

User: h4x0r4f33dom
Reason: Requesting all this users posts are moved to Dustbin, Duplicate Threads or Unsupported Software.

All three are technically applicable - a google search for the username shows they've just been cross-posting identical crap to multiple websites, not bothering to read replies (or their own posts it seems, given they all use broken formatting code), and they have a strong whiff of "Backtrack LiveCD Skiddie" about them. I don't think they'd notice their own absence.

Yeah, reeks of script kiddie, all right. Will look at this in detail when I'm back at my workstation. Thanks. — JRG

User: cokey
Topic: Two of the most Incredible Goals. Which is your favourite?
Post: post 8010840
Reason: Perhaps a candidate for thread consolidation?

Not everyone here is European or is interested in pointless sports invented by Europeans.

I replied in the thread earlier and didn't notice it had been reported. As his previous post was in 2016 and this post is 2017, I'm not going to merge them. But, the current thread can be used if he starts posting a bunch of soccer stuff. (Do keep in mind that I don't believe his soccer threads usually have common terms, which may make finding them difficult.) --pjp

Into which thread should it be merged? Can I pick one at random? :) pjp posted in the cited thread a link to a Trump-related thread about an hour before your report, but apparently decided not to merge the two threads. -Hu]

One of the trump threads should be fine. Not sure which thread is appropriate though.

Edit: Can we have this merged to the Trump Inauguration thread?


To clarify, some regular contributors seemed to grasp the idea that New Topic should be used less. After what seemed like a more than reasonable amount of time courtesy merging threads, it seemed necessary to reinforce the idea with a bit more insistence.

The point in my consolidating threads is to achieve some level of balance between common topics of "discussion" and "oh, look, I found a new shiny url to post."

Topic: Tree cleaners should do their job
Post: post 8016384
Reason: Maybe the thread should be split from there into an excerpt on 'When being nice and respectful to devs - or not'

I don't have any issues with it being split, but it's hardly required in this instance, it's not like there are two distinct subjects being discussed, one is an outgrowth of the other. As to your description of the subject then no, that isn't the question at all, you're attempting to make it seem as though it's a matter of being "nice and respectful to devs" rather than the actual point being made which is that developers should not be immune from criticism ... but as you want to politicise it in such a way then I'd suggest the subject: "dev's are special".

User: wcgtt
Topic: Coppa Italia, la diretta di Inter-Bologna
Post: post 8018110
Topic: tv-match-russie-france
Post: post 8018118
Reason: spam

edit: the user has removed posts, anyway take a look

[Moderator response: as fedeliallalinea said in the edit, those posts no longer exist. The user presently has zero posts and nothing in the public profile that would distinguish it from any other new user with no posts. In particular, there is presently no profile data indicative of a spammer. This user bears watching. -Hu]

User: Roman_Gruber
Topic: Issue with incorrect temperature thresholds for AMD r9 380
Post: post 8019950
Reason: This post is worse than their usual wild goose chase, telling a newbie to experiment on their hardware like this might brick it.

At this point I'm not even sure if this isn't a bot inserting random search results based on the last post.
