    Greetings Members,

    I'm gathering a little survey data to determine members' views on report notifications. Would you like to receive a notification for each report that you make once it is resolved by the staff? This would not inform you what decision the staff made on the report, but simply that deliberation on the report has ended and a decision has been made one way or another.

    Would you like this sort of notification? Why or why not? Please also help us out by completing the survey.

    I voted with the second option since I don't actually feel the need to report anything since being on the forum.

    I would say that getting a notification of a report is the start, but the best way to put people's mind at ease is to actually mention what decision is made and your reasoning behind it so that people can understand how you came to your conclusion. If you don't help people to understand decisions made then they will jump to all sorts of conclusions with the little information and bias they have.

    I'd think it nice to have a confirmation the matter has been looked at. A common courtesy.

    Anything is better than silence from my perspective.

    But what I'd really love is:

    1. Yes we agreed.
    2. We did not agree but would be happy to discuss our decision further in a private chat if you'd like.

    The thing about this is that all matters are looked at. We don't just ignore reports. We see and consider every single report. So I'm not sure where folks are taking the idea that we never even looked. We have a conversation on every single thing that is reported.

    Nothing major; just like getting an automated email reply to acknowledge the message.

    I recall (without detail) that some posters reported for
    a violation will continue violating in the same manner.

    If someone does this we'll just keep giving them warnings until they're banned. Unless we deem the content not rule breaking. You can be annoying as hell and that's not rule breaking.

    I choose option #2, ("yes, but not important to me") because I never had that problem and likely won't run into it. But it would add to transparency which I'd like to improve in principle.

    I voted option #2.
    Actually it's like that: If I just complain about something, I don't need a notification.

    However, if I'm getting insulted and report that post... and the mods do not share my view that this constitutes an insult... I'd very much like to be informed.

    I would quickly revisit the thread and post something to challenge the passage with regard to what I see as insulting.

    I don't want to go to bed with an insult - or I should say with something I regard as such - against my person viewable in public that has not been challenged by anyone.

    What's the point of telling us a decision has been made if you won't tell us what that decision was?

    It might be good to have that info, as the forum rules are NOT applied uniformly, the same for everyone (but who cares, it is an internet forum).

    How do you think you know this, though, not being privy to moderation?

    Observation :)

    Over the past few years I have seen some posts vanish that are no different than others that are allowed to stay. Same behavior/infraction. I am not saying that you are consciously biased, necessarily.

    It depends on what your understanding of broken rules is and what is and isn't reported. As has been said multiple times: we don't see every single post on the forum.

    That's almost a truism. Since moderation isn't systematically applied and moderators are human, it is only to be expected that some infractions are overlooked. You don't get a ticket every time you speed and even professional judges are more lenient after they had lunch.
    So, some inequality is system inherent, not an attack against the moderators.
