Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 3 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
The Report Post function is one of the most important tools we use here at Drugs Forum, as this board deals with a number of sensitive discussion topics. This forum function allows us to stick to the strict forum guidelines, which in turn keeps the forum running smoothly and free of potential problems.
Reporting a post puts it in a moderation queue where moderators can view Post Reports. Moderators check this queue often and act on post reports as quickly as possible. If more than one member reports the same post, it bring it to the top of the queue each time, which make it more apparent to the moderators that the post need urgent attention.
Reporting posts is one of the quickest ways to allert a moderator or administrator and get their attention to a troublesome thread or a post. This is why it is important that our members do their part by using this function.
Posts should be reported for any rule violation. If you are in doubt whether the post needs reporting or not, report it anyway.
We rather spend extra few minutes looking through the post rather than have a potentially dangerous or life-threatenning text live on our site.
Here is a list of some of the reasons for reporting a post:
Dissuading/stopping illegal activities
Keeping members and site visitors safe from incorrect information
Keeping spam of the board
Keeping he signal to noise ratio down
Reducing the workload of the staff
and generally helping this forum to remain live, active and helpful.
