I have an idea for a new award. I'll jump straight into it...

The award would be called The Peacekeeper or The Hero, something along those lines. This would be given to those members who report valid offensive posts, often. It would also increase usage of the report button, making the forum a safer place to be!

However the award should only be given to those recognised for reporting posts that are dealt with by a moderator is the fashion needed. People who just report unnecessary posts, to get the award, should be warned. It won't be hard to realise who should get this award. Moderators just need to take notice of who is reporting these offensive posts and if a name crops up regularly, they should receive the award.

I think it's a good idea :]

Bold is where the idea starts to fall apart. Encouraging people to use the report button will mean trivial things like swearing and other small things will be reported. Not to mention that, if I heard & remember correctly, reporting a message sends an APB to moderators via e-mail, so this would, in turn, flood their inboxes with dozens of markings, many of which will be multiples.

Not to mention that the moderators will need to spend more time combing through reports for abuse and dealing with those.

Report is fine as is.

This forum has a report button? Well I'll be damned...

Still cool idea.
