@WebMaster, is it possible for the forum to get a Report - Feedback functionality?

So that members know what happens when they report someone(post?)?

E.g I report someone, and after a period of time, no action is taken = dont know whats happening, is it because the report was wrong, was it ignored, were mods busy etc. No feedback

What if upon reporting, the mods have to provide feedback on the report, if it is approved, denied, wait, ignored, kind of punishment to the offending party etc.

Because currently, members can report posts but we dont know whats happening, why reports are not being acted upon, if the queue list for reports is too long and we must wait etc.

IMO transparency and feedback to the user who reports something would be beneficial as members would gain a better understanding of the rules and their interpretations by the mods

The mods are busy enough, writing a one liner response just takes a lot of energy out of them.

Has there been any discussion on expanding the mod team?

Or the mods can split their work load.

E.g Political - Military sections

I thought by78 was going to get promoted to mod, but guess haven't happened yet. Need webmaster approval and that takes time. I'm not the best person to answer.

There is resport functionality but I don't think members get alerts on what happens when an action is taken. I will look and see if we can improve that.
