Once it has been reported the icon is gone forever.

We find it important to know when multiple users report a post. Then it's not just one person offended, but multiple. Gives the report more weight.

This mod isn't for everyone. On my forum it doesn't matter if you're offended- it either broke the rules or not. 1 report is plenty.

Good point. We should also do away with jury trials - one man's opinion is all that's needed to make judgements.

Maybe I'm missing something. When subsequent members report a post it simply adds another post in the same thread as the first saying "X has also reported this item.". Then it quotes their reason. Often this reason is a totally different angle than the other people's reasons.

At that point staff is probably already discussing the offense so adding a post here and there with other reasoning only aids the discussion.

I always went the opposite way, cliques like to gang-report their targets. The more reports on it, the less of a look it gets.

This stops all of that nonsense.

When someone reports a thread on my forum I usually disregard whatever comment they may have made since it's irrelevant and would only serve to bias my opinion. I simply read the offending post and see if it broke any of our rules-
Is it spam?
Does it have another member's personal information?
Is it a copyright violation?

If "no" to all of the above I don't take any action. So the comment and the number of reports are usually irrelevant. But everyone runs their forum different- some people remove "offending" posts or have your members "vote" on things. More power to you if it works for you. My forum is not a democracy.

BOPs,

Question - If a post is reported and subsequently moderated, is there a way to bring the report button back?

Not without manually editing the database to set the 'reportthreadid' field of the post to 0.
