    First off the report button should only be pressed when someone writes or posts something that is inappropriate for the forums. Also you can report a thread that is in the wrong section.

    How To Report Something In A Thread Or Profile Post:
    Step 1-Make sure it is something that actually needs to be reported if it is press report

    Step 2-Type your reason for reporting the post then hit Report Profile Post if it's a profile post and Report Post if it's a regular post in a thread.

    Step 3-The moderators and admins of this site will review the report and decide what should be done about it.
    Step 4- Thank Will Nightwolf for posting this thread

    Step 4-Thank Will Nightwolf for making this thread

    Again I would like to make it clear that you should only press the report button when something is innapropriate to the forums or when a thread is in the wrong place.

    Here are the site rules if you feel something violates these rules then report it

    To find the terms and rules without the links go to the bottom right of any page and you will see Terms and Rules

    If your ever unsure if something should be reported then feel free to send a moderator or admin a message asking them what they think.

    What about if someones signature is too big? Can we report for that. It is against the site rules if it's over 200 in height so

    Also,

    Report any posts you see that a person has posted twice in a row. We will then merge them into one post. It helps keep the threads neater and more organized.
