Hey guys, hope you’re all well.
I was debating on whether I should post this in the expert’s lounge or release this topic publicly, but I figured it would be better to make the entire forum aware of this ongoing issue, hence the topic being listed on #forum-feedback.
Remember, this post speaks for me personally - not the other moderators and forums team.
Recently there’s been some clashes regarding tagging the moderators on threads. Personally, I don’t mind being tagged, although I can’t speak for other moderators.
There is one solution that could avoid arguments and clashes: Rather than tagging us, just flag the post so we can overlook it. When flagging a post, you can provide your own reason or you can select an option. So if you think it’s spam, you can tick the spam box. If it’s inappropriate, you tick that box and so on. However, if you feel that a question has been answered and the topic no longer needs any more replies, you can choose the ‘custom’ option and input your own reply. We will take matters into our own hands following your request.
Flagging a post or topic does not mean that it should be should directly be deleted or unlisted, it means that said topic or post needs to be reviewed by a moderator or forums team member.
