If your new, you might see people talking about "flagging"
But what is flagging?
Flagging is sort of like reporting, it's when you click on the flag button you will see on posts and topics, and then you can decide if the topic or post is mean, inappropriate, off-topic, or spam.
what do I do if the post or topic isn't anything like that, or if I don't know if it should be flagged or not?
if you don't know if something should be flagged or not, ask a moderator or someone else on the forum. Because it's not okay to flag something when it really isn't bad or against the community guidelines.
What will happen if my post or topic gets flagged?
then @liza will send you a message about what got flagged and why it got flagged, also, if you get 5 flags or more, you can't become a regular, so I totally suggest to be nice and try not to get flagged.
Why do we have flagging?
If we didn't have flagging, people would:
- be rude to others and say mean and inappropriate things
- post off topic and spam in the forum
- say bad words and bully others
no one wants that to happen, right?
So that's all I have to say about flagging. I hope you understand.
