Clicking report on the relevant post is probably best.

pmsl - it didnt work then did it?:giggle:

I was just asking because when you click on the report button it says:
Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts.

It kind of put me off using it a few times as sometimes a post deserves reporting but doesnt really come under the above - I just wanted to know if its OK to use it for things like rep begging when it happens to be a serious enough case.

Seriously though, I've noticed odd ones as you said consistantly and blatently begging for rep

Don't worry about reporting too many posts. It just sends the mods an email, no problem for us really.

If someone is sad enough and desperate enough to beg for rep does it really matter :whistling:

Well you could point out that rep begging is against forum rules. But the poster would have a rant, acuse you of just trying to pee people off and being a mod wannabee......

Then again if you report it to the mods you feel like a 7 year old snitch....

At least no one will know it was you. ;-)

i dont know what you should do,
but can i have some rep please?.... anyone ?
[mod]#16
I still think rep should be abolished.... and that's not me moaning or begging as i'm already very high. It's just a bit of a waste really.

Well I made a point of bringing it up with the poster first as I dont like to report anything without giving them a chance to fix it - as they may not have known - benefit of the doubt and all that.... As did a couple of other people in one instance,but evidently they decided to carry on doing it.

But yeah I do feel quite stupid reporting someone to the mods, but then again when you sign up here you agree to abide by the rules.

I like the fact on the "other" forum, that you can get "thanks" for your posts. But I think they actually show who thanked too.
Example

Thanked 20 times in 6 posts.

Obviously wouldn't be a good idea to copy it, but I just prefer it to little green boxes.
