As you may or may not know, I am one of the Moderators of the VMware Community Forums, So what are our responsibilities, well we have to keep the mean streets of the forums clean from Spam, rouge Out of Office Agents, and occasionally intervene in a flame war or two.
Now Demi Gods that we obviously are 😉 we cannot be everywhere at all times, we do have our day jobs, you know the ones that pay the Mortgage etc to hold down as well.
So today Scott Vessey posted on Twitter that he needed to contact a moderator over an possible issue with a users post, but he could not find how to do it. this got me to thinking as we had very recently put in place a system for alerting us.
But it seems that we have not been good enough with our marketing of that fact.
So how exactly do you get in touch with a moderator if you feel there is something on the forums that should not be there?
Quite simple really
the first thing that is needed is that you will need to be logged in as a User of the forums
This will take you to the Report abuse form
here you can make a choice from the drop down box and enter your reasons as to why you are reporting the post. Once you are satisfied clikc the Report Abuse button to submit it
you are then returned back to the original post and you will notice that there is a Green notice appeared at the top
Note that you can also report abuse on the initial post, although the “Report Abuse” hyperlink is in a different location. this is found in the Action box on the right of the page
I hope that this is helpful and Scott this one was for you 😀
