Default We need a mod contact button!!!!

Ive been in some threads and they really dont have much point or are in the wrong place and I end up having to PM a mod to move or delete it, I was wondering if making a mod button to contact the board mod would be of any use.

Hello,
We generally prefer the usage of the PM feature if it's a small problem like a post being in the wrong place. We do, however, have a "Report to moderator" feature at the bottom of all posts in the case of big breaches to the forum rules (like posting porn, illegal content or maybe just constant flaming/trolling etc.)

Is it any harder to go PM a mod? I mean there's the list of moderators next to the board link in the "breadcrumbs" set of links e.g. "Tau Online Forums > General > Tau Online Comments/Suggestions (Board mods would be listed here) > We need a mod contact button!!!!"...

And also - there's the Report to moderator feature that can be used, there's a link at the bottom right of every post that you can use to contact the moderators of a board. Obviously there are guidelines for this etc, which are detailed here.

No problem for suggesting something! However we do have such systems in place already as the above posts show.

Sorry to kind of jump in, but I'm pretty adapt at contacting mods with problems. (I'm a watchful bugger :shifty: )

Usually, if there's a problem, I copy and paste a PM to several of the Gmods who are online. Always gets fixed pretty quick.

Plus, even if we did have an miner offence here (Necromancy, for example), most of the regular members "stomp it down" without a problem, and tell the offender it's not ok. Problem solved through power of the people!

A button? Apart from the time Rezzy and FT played dressups in the enclave, do we look like nursing staff??

Just as a note, even if we had a "contact the mods" button, such as on the main site, ie: not necessarily board based, it wouldn't be useful unless it only sent the word out to active mods at the time. If it's meant to quickly contact a mod, it needs to be someone who is both online and currently active.

So if you want to see the fastest results, here's a simple process:

Step1: See who's online. You can easily see who's a moderator in that list and it's color coded.
Step2: Click the name of a currently active moderator. Any will do.
Step3: You're now looking at their profile. You can then send them a Private Message (You can send it to multiple people at once too!).
Step4: Chances are, they will get the message and be able to take care of the problem, or at least send it to someone who can.

Cheers!

Also, our G-mods are spread out over several time zones, so there should usually be someone online who can help.
