Post # 1
Mods, I flagged a post that didn’t need to be flagged. Not sure how to fix that.
I thought if I flagged a post it would give me an opportunity to write a small message as to why I was flagging it for the mod to read. I just wanted to say something to a mod about the post, not officially make it RED AND FLAGGED if you get what I mean. lol

Usually it doesn’t let you submit something without a few words, at least. I accidentally hit Flag on my droid all the time when I’m scrolling through WB, and it’s never just flagged without me typing in a reason.

@Tunacupcakes: It should have a pop up/ drop down window that comes up where you can write a message, and there are a minimum number of characters (not sure how many exactly, maybe 15 or 20? really, just a guess).
If you don’t get that drop down, it didn’t register you trying to flag something, and nothing went through. 🙂

Ok cool. Yeah, that’s what has always been my experience with other boards as well. You need to state why you are flagging.
I’m also curious as to what mods want flagged. I mean obviously the blatant attacks, but do mods care about posts or users who look “fishy” or whatever? Not to start a crucifixion, but more like “Ehhh, perhaps someone should keep an eye on this.”
Or do mods not really need that? There has just been so much extra work lately for mods, I could see it being useful, but I could also see it being a pain in the butt.
