Here are the best ways to get a forum
moderator's assistance on Wrong Planet.



1) Post a reply to this thread

Use this option for:

  • » reporting spam attacks
  • » reporting clearly inappropriate content (e.g. porn)
  • » reporting misplaced threads
  • » requesting other actions on or attention to threads or posts


2) Create a new thread in the WrongPlanet.net discussion forum

Use this option for:

  • » site suggestions
  • » issues with the site's operation
  • » questions about WP that are not covered in the FAQ here

3) Send a private message to an active moderator

Use this option for:

  • » reporting concerns about another member's behaviour
  • » reporting content that may violate the site rules

Click a name on the list below to begin writing a PM to that moderator.


If you have an urgent concern that should be delivered via PM and you are not certain which moderators are currently online, make a reply to this thread and ask to whom you should write.

4) Reporting a Private Message

Use this option to report a PM you've received which causes concern, is spamming, or otherwise breaks the site rules.
Do not just delete an offensive PM; there is a chance it will have been sent to other members so please, report it instead.

Moderators cannot read your PMs - these need to be reported by clicking on the red exclamation point Image on the lower right corner of the PM.
Doing so will ensure that a copy of the content plus details of who sent it will be made available to moderators for review.



PLEASE DO NOT:
  • » Use this section of the forums to gossip or vent about a member, mod, or admin.
  • » Ask for another person's ban to be lifted. That is an individual's own responsibility.
  • » Create a new account to inquire about a ban.
  • » Make comments on people who post here or what they post - PM one of us about it instead.
  • » Clog this thread with other unnecessary or off topic material.

Note that the moderators get a notification every time someone posts in this thread. Please don't waste our precious time by commenting or holding debates in this thread - such posts may be removed without notice. Also be aware that this thread is archived from time to time and all the posts are removed.

Thanks! Your help is much appreciated. :)

An additional note:

When reporting spam, please provide a link or at least a username. There are many topics posted on the forums here, and "they're back!" or "here we go again!" without a clue given as to where the spam was posted just means that we have to spend more time searching to find it.
Thanks. :)

I'm intoxicated right now so my judgement may be impaired, so I don't want to make big decisions. For now, I've moved the topic to Members Only so it doesn't contribute to autism representation outside.
The topic itself (as its title) is a right remark but as it follows to OP's personal confessions, it becomes deeply problematic.

Yeah, best to let mods handle it and they can contact Alex about it too and see what he wants done with this user. But I want nothing to do with him anymore.

The topic has been removed by a sober moderator (thus, not me tonight).
I don't think there is any reason for more actions or involving higher instances - according to its OP, the relevant authorities have been informed about the transgression and he's receiving psychological treatment. The topic has been removed and the OP agreed not to discuss it publicly again.
