From time to time, a user may accidentally find themselves abusing/misusing the flagging system. To help you all better understand when it's appropriate to flag, we've put together this friendly and simple guide.

Flagging should only be used for reporting the following:

  • Inappropriate content
  • Vulgarities
  • Attacks on users
  • Key-gen posts
  • Spam bots
  • Disruptive posts

NOT for the following:

  • If you disagree with a comment/thread
  • If you dislike the user

Remember the flagging system is there to help you help the community staff and moderators. Users that continue to misuse/abuse the flagging system may become subject to moderation.
