Reporting inappropriate content on the forums


  • Moderators

    Hi all,

    Thanks to Tero Kojo, our friendly community manager, the reporting link is working again.

    As a moderator I would like to ask everyone to keep an eye open on threads with spam, non Qt related advertisement, bad language and other things we don't like on the forums. See the "forum rules":http://qt-project.org/forums/rules for more info.

    bq. If you click on the report link on the right of a post, you can fill in some information why you want to report it. An email will be sent to the forum moderators. They can take action on the matter. The Devnet forums are growing, as a result it is impossible to read every single topic. All together we can!

    Thanks for your help,

    Eddy



  • Hi Eddy, I think that link isn't working again.

    I found "this":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/45985/ and there's no way that can be reported.

    Edit: (It has already been removed)



  • how can we report a user? "uyfxm":http://qt-project.org/mebmer/171266



  • It is not needed to report users. If we spot spammers (or people filling the forum with rants on how bad Digia is), these users are usually banned right away.

    Hey Andre,

    If Digia banned these spammers account, then they can create another account and do the same thing. I think every message should be filtered (by the Admin) before publishing.

  • same spam on my mail box.

  • Yeah, sometimes he seems to send stuff to people via the "send mesage" functionality.

    Hang in there until the new CMS is there. That will make filtering possible.

  • no problem, maybe also apossibility to change the subject of the email by the title of the forum subject... like that users can also protect themself against out off topic sends.
    also, in the CSS file of the new CMS, maybe possible to:

    change the fixed width of the page by a "full width".

    change characters for codes my monospace type inside the same large div page than the comment entry

    but use of CMS is not so easy than do it by frameworks like Django or Rails (or Node.js). good luck.

  • I'm not the one doing that work, just reporting that it is going on. I'm just a moderator (and not connected to Digia in any way).

    So Digia can only accept people that praise them on how good and great they are but outlaw those that criticise them.Can't believe Digia is so bias as a international company with tools that use by worldwide

  • No, that is not a fair observation. Everybody is allowed to post critique against Digia, the Qt project or whatever relevant body. However, not if that is done in the form of a continious stream of posts filled with rants, often in full capitals, posted in not-related topics or when being abusive towards other users.

    Critique is welcome, vandalism or spam is not.

    Oh, and by the way, I do not operate in the name of Digia.

  • Hello, I have detected very clever spammer on "Qt Russia group":http://qt-project.org/groups/qt_russia/updates page.

    User jenifferhomes has copied post from SABROG (http://qt-project.org/groups/qt_russia/updates/20) added a link to website with commercial content and posted it on group updates http://qt-project.org/groups/qt_russia/updates

    Can moderators please check this?

    PS.: there is no "report link" button in group updates :/

  • Thank you for the report. I have banned the user, which got rid of the spam posting. Not a loss, as this user did not post any other content on the site. Just deleting this one posting was not possible.

    Thanks for reporting this.
