I have a little question about reporting.

I don't do it very often but when I do, I'm often stumped about what to say in the 'your comment' box.

I mean do you, MNHQ, expect to hear what I think of the post or the poster or just a one or two word comment about which category of talk guidelines it's breaking, like "personal attack", "disablist" or "thread about thread"

or do you like something a bit more flowery like "this poster is being a twat" ?

or can I just leave it blank and let you decide?

What do others put down in that box then?

I leave it blank usually, unless I am in such a rage about whatever it is to start a rant. Doesn't happen much!

I usually leave it blank unless it requires further information not actually in that post eg spamming across multiple boards, inconsistencies between posts, patterns between posts etc

Depends, If I think it's a troll I will just write something like 'this thread seems odd'

I prescis if I can, tho' one the other day I just wrote Oh Dear on, hur hur.

I usually report a PA As a PA

reporting disablist posts is a waste of time......
they are just left now

I tell them why I am reporting the post.

So 'Advert alert!' or 'Possible troll'

I also like to slip them a grin to cheer them up, even though someone at HQ told me they don't actually work.

Oh no, I ve written essays trying to make mnhq understand why I was reporting a fred/poster/thingy before. I feel a fool sad

Don't the emoticons work in reports? oh dear blush

MissAnnersley Tue 09-Oct-12 16:43:18

Grim I came back from work and was gutted when it was gone. grin

Poledra Tue 09-Oct-12 16:45:01

I put a little explanation. The last one I reported, I wrote 'This looks like advertising to me. And for a right pile o' shite as well, IMHO.' MNHQ haven't replied to it sad

WereTricksPotter I reported one this morning.....still there.
another just now, won't hold my breathe

OhChristFENTON Tue 09-Oct-12 19:31:03

Oh, I love that poem, Beer, I might have to steal it grin

I will have to think of a witty ditty next time I report. Much nicer for MNHQ to read than "OMG what an arse, - LoL"

I NEVER say Lol though

HoneyDragon Tue 09-Oct-12 19:37:58

I tend to go....

Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam spaaaaaaam.

If it is spammy.

Or simply

Uh Oh

BigBroomstickBIWI Tue 09-Oct-12 19:42:12

I have put-

'Weird'
'Bizarre'
'This is going a bit pear shaped'

DameFannyGallopsAtaGhost Tue 09-Oct-12 19:52:32

I've reported ads with just a 'tut tut tut', which seemed to tickle them

Depends on what time of day it is. I reported a couple at the weekend, and just suggested that whoever had the evening shift got the gin ready.
