READ ME FIRST: How to use Moderation

Postby Frisbeeteria » Sat May 15, 2010 5:48 pm

Welcome to Moderation. This is to help guide you about what to post and where to post it in order to get help from the Moderation Team.

There are two primary avenues for contacting Moderation:
  • The Moderation forum - for all of the following:
    • Reporting forumside rules violations. First, check existing threads to see if the problem has already been reported, or if your report belongs in one of our Megathreads (listed below). If not, post a new thread, including [REPORT] in the title, and ensure the rest of the title is as descriptive as possible - e.g. "Trolling in the 2016 Elections Thread". Tell us exactly what the problem is: who is violating what rule, and link to the relevant post(s). You can get the link for a post by right clicking on the little post icon at the top left of the forum post. You can only post in Report threads if you are the person making the report, the person being reported, or are bringing relevant new information to the thread. In my opinion/advice posts will get you warned for spamming Moderation. Leave the moderating to the Moderators.
    • Appeals of forumside rulings. The full appeals process is set out here, and please read that first. Appeals should be clearly tagged with [APPEAL] in the thread title; alternatively you can post your appeal in the original report thread (if there was one). Final Appeals and appeals of forumbans should be made via Getting Help Request. You can only post in Appeals threads if you are the person making the appeal, or are bringing relevant new information to the thread. In my opinion/advice posts will get you warned for spamming Moderation. Leave the moderating to the Moderators.
    • Discussion threads. These should clearly labelled with [DISCUSSION] in the thread title, and are for discussion of moderation policy. You should not use Discussion threads to re-open discussion on specific incidents that have already been handled - they are for discussing wider policy. Anyone may post in Discussion threads; however, we expect people to express their opinions in good faith. Bad faith posts will be removed.
    • Miscellaneous queries. You may occasionally have a query about a rule or similar, in which case you may post it in Moderation. Please label you thread with [QUERY] in the title.
  • Getting Help Requests - via the Getting Help page. These are for the following:
    • Reporting gameside rules violations. The Getting Help page includes a helpful guide to making an effective help request. If you do not follow this, we will need to request more information from you, which will delay processing your request. Save us and yourself time by getting it right from the start.
    • Appeals - of gameside warnings, forum bans, and all Final Appeals. See the Appeals process for more on this.
    • Reports of forumside violations and queries that require confidentiality - you must have a legitimate reason for wanting your question or report dealt with via the Getting Help system; if you do not, we will direct you to the Moderation forum.
    • Requesting API keys. Explained in the guide to making an effective help request.
    • Store purchase queries. These will generally be passed on for an admin to handle.
    • Requesting a school Class region. See NationStates for Educators.



Routine action reporting threads
Given the large amounts of these kind of reports, please use the following threads for routine actions:
