    To report a post, click the Report link underneath the offending post. You will be given a simple form to describe the problem.

    You can also report your own post when you need help from the moderators, for example to ask the moderators to delete a post when you change your mind, remove a duplicate post you made by mistake, change or edit the title of a thread, or move a thread you posted in the wrong forum.

    Tips for reporting posts:
    1. To report a thread, report any post in the thread and explain what the problem with the thread is.

    2. If you are reporting a duplicate thread, please provide a link to the previous thread.

    3. If you are reporting an ongoing problem (e.g., a user making multiple trolling posts) rather than a specific post, please provide links.

    4. Other users don't know that you reported a post. Your anonymity is protected.

    5. Don't report a post by sending a personal conversation message to a moderator you think is online. They may be just leaving or not on moderation duty. Always use the report link to ensure the next moderator checking reports has an opportunity to see it.
    Thank you to those who report posts needing moderator attention. Your efforts help to improve the quality of the forums!
