Report button

Its come to my attention that drawings don't have a report button.
I think it would be helpful and easier if in the rare situtations where someone has broken the rules and mods/mick arent unaware of it, it can be handled quickly by us by reporting it just to illustrate it to them. That way they know and can deal with it how they want to. Just seems alot of effort emailing Mick, clogging up his inbox and actually finding what to say about it.

Just a suggestion

Re: Report button

It's a good idea in all, but sadly..like the whole 'kick' button. It could be seriously abused.

Say someone isn't to fond of the other person, an decides to nit pick each drawing in their gallery, making a big deal out of insignificant things trying to troll the artist.

They'd have alot of "false alarm" alerts I think because of immature people.

If there is a way to stop that it'd be a great idea.

Re: Report button

You could say that but in affect, unlike the kick button, the report button would only notify the mods/mick, maybe something can be implemented to say who is reporting therefore, if you spam the report button you're obviously going to be in trouble yourself then people wouldnt do it. I mean, if someone was offended or nit picking a drawing, i'm sure they would email mick anyways so its pretty much the same.

Re: Report button

It's true but in my opinion I think thered be a spam of notifications to them...Hmmn.

Maybe when a notification is sent, say if someone sees 2 drawings in a row that should be censored...the notification could look like this;

Inapropriate Drawing! Flagger; (Usernamehere) x2

So itll be on the same notification with a x whatever ammount of drawings they've reported as unfit for public eye.

Re: Report button

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.

Re: Report button

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.

Re: Report button

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. smile

Re: Report button

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.

Re: Report button

Yeah, I think people should use report drawings instead of a thread too.

Re: Report button

Agreed. That's a good point. I think they should pass this. It'd make RMD a whole lot easier.

Re: Report button

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.  ~~

Re: Report button

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.


The best way to support our community is to just keep drawing - even if it's for fun and not serious. Another way is by taking time to occasionally rate and comments drawings by new or learning artists.
