Maybe the mods/admins won't be alerted of a flag until a certain number of people have reported it.
We did have a report button a few years ago and it was highly abused by members (generally from people trying to report drawings ranked higher then theirs) to the point of it not really making it any easier to find abusive drawings. However this was a long time ago and perhaps the community has matured since then - will consider bringing this back, just need to find the right way to implement it so that it is not abused.
yep bump D: whens Mick gonna see this.
oh! so there really isn't one... and here I thought I was just so stupid not to see the button 'cause I thought for sure there is one. There are many times I see drawings I wish to report for breaking the rules but couldn't because of this. ~~
Agreed. That's a good point. I think they should pass this. It'd make RMD a whole lot easier.
I'm glad you agree
Yeah, I think people should use report drawings instead of a thread too.
But even if someone has a drawing that is inappropriate why go to such lengths to get it noticed if there was a report button? Its pretty mortifying too if you can't find the words. Say someone's displaying a nude image I don't feel people would create a forum post because they wouldn't know what to say. Also, I don't think, even if their draw goes against the rules they should be publicly humiliated with a forum post.
That is what the 'Report Inappropriate or Mature Content' category is for.
"Report Inappropriate or Mature Content
Report inappropriate or mature drawings, abusive users, rude forum topics, rude comments - anything that goes against our rules you may report here."
If you scroll to the bottom of the list of forum categories you will see it. There is no point in spamming Mick's inbox when all you have to do is post the link to the drawing in the report category and a mod or Mick will see to it the way they see fit.
Also maybe instead, to avoid gallery spam reports, you can only report one of their drawings in their gallery once which tells mick/mods that this user has has a drawing in their gallery which is inappropriate. Then if they do have more than one inappropriate drawing i'm sure another user would report it or they can check themselves. Similar to dc where you can only report a user once.
Yeah, sounds like a legit idea. I mean, there's never been a problem with reporting someone in dc, i'm pretty sure it'd have been taking down otherwise. So really it should be on drawings too.
