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. :)

 This Recent Thread  seems to be essentially the same subject as  This Earlier Thread .  Can the two be merged?
