In the past, we've received several suggestions or concerns that reported posts seem to go unanswered. Of course, because we no longer show an infraction icon on posts and the staff forums are private that would appear like a black hole in most cases to the user base.
So in an effort to correct this view and to help facilitate understanding and clarity on the rules we will be replying to post reports once the staff has reached agreement. This will come in the form of a PM from me (Squatch347) primarily though sometimes from other staff as well. Please do not take these PMs as the opinion of the staff member writing you, but rather as a summary of the findings of the staff.
Feel free to respond with any questions or concerns you might have regarding the report and please contact me if you haven't heard back about a reported post for 3 or 4 days.
Finally, please keep these PMs private. Do not reference these decisions in the forums, they are private communications. Feel free to respond via PM to me (or any of the staff), or to open a thread in the Ask the Staff Forum.
Hopefully, this policy will resolve the concerns noted above and give everyone a better sense of staff involvement. We appreciate your continued patience and look forward to any feedback you might have.
