Hello everyone, my name is Hendrich. This has been a long time coming, but recently I felt that as a community, this had to be addressed.
FLAGGING & YOU!
What are flags? They are tools open to every user, used to let moderators know if posts are off-topic, inappropriate (to the guidelines), spam or requires special attention. These are not just moderator powers, users can do them too. Recently, I’ve been noticing a lot of toxic behavior, yet very little done by the community to fight against this. This post is to let you all know you have this power, use it!
These are the GrangerHub Community Guidelines. They are like the bible of GrangerHub, and you are it’s noble sheep. Read them. Remember them. Follow them. Don’t like it? Be at risk of bring flagged, or worse. These are not meant to harm you, but to help everyone fight against toxic behavior that derails good discussion.
Most importantly, this section explicitly gives you these powers:
When you see bad behavior, don’t reply. It encourages the bad behavior by acknowledging it, consumes your energy, and wastes everyone’s time. Just flag it. If enough flags accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by moderator intervention.
Just flag it! If there are any questions, feel free to ask them here. Thanks for reading and most importantly, thanks for making GrangerHub a great place for everybody!
