Despite how amazing you all think we are, us mods aren't omniprescent, and therefore we don't read every post that gets posted, and just because one of you guys decides a thread needs to be closed, our mod-sense doesn't kick in and tell us so, which can lead to scenes like this:
person who doesn't get it simply isn't going to work wrote:
someone thinking this is going to alert a moderator even quicker wrote:
person trying to be cool wrote:
Which can lead to arguments that help no-one and the chances are that a moderator might not even see the desperate pleas for the topic to be locked.
To combat this a new feature has just been installed, it will allow you guys to flag posts that need to be deleted or threads that need to be locked, simply click on the
image next to the
one and we will all be informed that the post needs to be looked at.
HOWEVER, don't go overboard, we don't want our inbox full of reports that don't need looking at, and remember that just because you want it deleted/closed doesn't mean it will be.
So yes, no more of this:
edit: Abuse it and face being banned.
