counter for posts Reported


hi there

In order to make LQ more organized .can we have a counter on no. of posts reported for each user.like the no. of multiple posts/(posts not following the rules) reported
this will not aonly show the contibution of users towards LQ but also make LQ more organized as more people will come to report multiple posts.
some of the users just ignore multiple posts, this way they will also like to show up their contributon to LQ.

regards

I don't think I'd want such a strike against me: surely I'd just end up being known as LQ's biggest tattle-tale?

I don't see how counting this sort of thing would encourage users to report rule violations or anything else for that matter - for example, there are counters for number of reviews and how many one has done and sod all folk post reviews or click "thanks".

I think what we really need to find out is why so few people do the "thanks" thing. I personally find the affero page annoying, but that's just me.

masand, I'd prefer to keep the report this post functionality anonymous (or maybe "non-public" is a better way to put it) , as it is now.

The whistle-blower is always anonymous and should always remain so Don't ask me why!

the whistle blower should be anonymous (non-public)
the count can be public

and i know that Jeremy will do what is best for the site
maybe i am wrong in recommending the counter

The concept itself is quite good in principle. I can just see that quite a few people might be uncomfortable with this info against their user profiles.

Mind you, I admit to clicking on the "report post" quite a lot when I see duplicate threads, spam, personal insults and such...

Must help the moderators a bit in such a busy forum.

i think u are getting this wrong

the people who report these posts will have a counter

not the ones who get reported for such posts

regards

There are posts reported for a number of reasons, occasionally people even try to use it to reply to a thread. Keeping a count of which posts were reported for the good of the site would end up being another task for the mods and count against the time saved when a member reports a post.

Rest assured that when you or any other member reports a post it does not go unnoticed and we really appreciate the continuing support you give us.
