Simple thing, this forum runs on member-moderation - that means, if you see something fucky, be it trolling, grandiose cliams the person may believe but which could cause problems, or anything at all that concerns you, flag it - that silently and discreetly alerts us.
The flag function is under the three dots … at the bottom of each post or PM, and it has a confirmation stage so you can’t flag by accident, also, it has space to describe what you think is wrong with the message or PM; please always flag if in doubt, there is no penalty for a flag that may not be quite on the mark of anything like that, it just lets us know that there may be something that needs to be looked at.
Your individual flag will NEVER cause anyone a problem and I hate banning anyone, so I always strive to explain rules first, it happens all the time and people go on to become great and active members.
But, if a post is controversial, rude, or in some other way a massive problem, the forum will automatically listen to YOU as a member, weigh things if a particular post is getting a lot of flags, and hide that post, or even, lock a topic for a few hours if someone is having a real trolling/flaming session, so you get a vote in whether someone’s behaviour is causing enough problems right in that moment to help keep the forum from being over-run.
BALG forum is all about personal responsibility so the software we have here that permits this member-moderation is ideal, and much better than relying on a few people to get things under control, instead every member on here has the rights and responsibilities of keeping things troll-free, and helping put out flame wars.
So, if in doubt, flag, that helps keep everything functioning and in 99% of situations I can have a quiet word via PM and explain to someone what the problem is, and set people up to succeed and enjoy their time on here!
