    I've been meaning to start this thread for some time now, but it's especially relevant after reading the BTT thread and recent complaints of rule violations.

    As you guys know, this site is growing rapidly. So rapidly, in fact, that it's usually difficult for our staff to read every post. Our community has a built in reporting function that allows every member to report a post when they see a rule violation. When a post is reported, a new thread is automatically created in our admin section, drawing instant attention to the problem. When this happens any one of us staff members can deal with the problem, and 99% of the time there's at least one of us staff members on the site.

    I want to ask and encourage all of you to use this reporting feature to help us maintain a clean and orderly forum. The report button can be found on the left side of the screen, under a users Icon section, and looks like this

    Thank you :thumbup:
