    A lot of members make a post and then wonder where it went.

    Recently many posts went MIA during the migration to the new and better server that Paul purchased to help improve the BOC.

    But, there are several that appear missing because members are using the REPORT POST button as a reply button despite the fact the letters are in yellow and it says REPORT instead of reply.

    The REPORT POST button is for reporting posts that you find offensive, abusive to another member, containing information not allowed in BOC posts, etc.

    Posts made with the REPORT POST button do not show up on the board at all. They go to the staff so that potential problems that are reported can be looked at as soon as possible and appropriate action can be taken.

    So please, use the REPORT POST button to REPORT posts only and you won't have to retype a post you intended as a reply to another post. :big_smile:

    The first image is the REPORT POST Button
    The second image is the one to use to reply to posts

    Hope this helps those of you that were not sure

    Remember that you are trying to explain something that has nothing to do with catfishing. Good luck with that.

    I can see where the uniform look of the buttons might cause members some trouble. Maybe if it simple said report and not report post?:0a36::confuse::big_smile_2:

    Thanks

    Maybe it just needs t be put more by itself. It's easy to hit the wrong button when they are all bunched together like that. Even though it's yellow but being between the Thanks button and the Quote button not good for old eyes like mine. So I just try to be extra careful when punching buttons.JMHO

    Did you have the same problems in the past or just since the buttons got a new look?
    Sorry if it was a stupid suggestion!:crazy:

    Since it's a problem for some people, how about using "Report Abuse".

    And the one on top left, "Reply to Thread".

    Yes David, same problem in the past.

    By no means was your suggestion a stupid one. It was a very good one actually.

    Thanks again.

    That is all I was getting at. Anything but the word "post".:big_smile: Symbols are easier to distinguish than blocks with words in them. At a glance people can and apparently do make mistakes and hit the wrong button. Possibly symbols that tell what they do when you place a courser over them.:confuse:

    Thanks

    Appreciate you and other staff members for all you do it is much appreciated by me. I will personally strive to look before I punch cause I can be guilty of being in a hurry and hitting the wrong button.:embarassed: Sister Pat

    People see pictures better than words. Kinda like the Wal-Mart shopping cart where secrets is now. I like the yellow color, probably should leave that. That button was originally called the "rat" button before you changed it. Very appropriate. If you put an icon of a rat in the yellow button format it will eliminate any confusion.

    REPORT POST, REPORT POST, REPORT POST... Man, why can't I get this button to work! :confused2::smile2:

    Yeah, I kinda liked that little shopping cart--thought I was for sale. I was wishin' someone would buy me, but they never did! :angry::wink:
