We value the active community that has developed within the TowersTimes forum. With some very exciting developments on the horizon, we will continue to need your help to maintain the fantastical quality, discussion and friendliness of our forums. We always appreciate any help and assistance with the reporting of posts and topics, primarily those in our 'hot topics'. However it has recently come to our attention that members have begun to take it upon themselves to both warn and reprimand other members in topics, rather than alerting a team member. Back seat moderating, as it is casually known, is counter-productive and creates both a negative and intimidating experience for our members. Please also note that any intensive behaviour of this type in any other areas of the forum, including the ShoutBox is to stop for similar reasoning.
In light of this, I would like to take the opportunity to remind members of the following 'report' feature that is available on all topics and posts.
You can find the option next to the quote feature on all posts.
Specifically, by clicking this button you will be taken to the report page.
The report page allows you to select a reason. Please leave as much information as you can then simply select 'Submit.'
By using the report feature instead of posting in the topic or sending a PM, you allow the forum software to alert all team members instantly. This enables the issue to be dealt with immediately and provides the team with an option to automatically log the problem. All alerts will be dealt with as soon as is viable so there is no need to follow these up with a Private Message to a team member. With regards to the ShoutBox, if behaviour makes any member feel uncomfortable then please alert a team member via PM to deal with the issue.
Once again, we'd like to thank all those who continue to take an active role in our forum and helping to keep us as one of the friendliest and welcoming communities on the web.
