Every once in a while it would be useful to tag a mod. 

Moving threads, locking the endless "ethical" hacking threads and Hackintosh threads that get posted all the time, etc. 

I know there used to be a "online users" bank at the bottom of the home page, but it seems that it is no longer there.


If I don't respond, please tag me in your post. I'm probably AFK or responding to someone else. 

I know what sarcasm is... Sometimes.

If you report a post, the moderators will be able to deal with the post accordingly, if you tag 1 mod, chances are this particular person won't be able to get at it for a couple hours, while if you just reported it, any mod could help.

 

But if you want a mod list, you can use the member search function;

Just press member search, uncheck all but moderators and administrators and search. Boom, the entire staff team.

Using the report function is the best way to do this, as @Minibois mentions it allows any mods to action the item instead of just the one that you tag. Also, please note that Hackintosh discussions are allowed, so long as they don't crossover into piracy discussions.

Any discussion on how to engage in piracy is not allowed, including the discussion of hacking or cracking.

  • Discussion of piracy in general is acceptable (e.g. "Game X becomes the most pirated game ever").
  • Hackintosh discussion is permitted.

Didn't realize they had changed their stance on Hackintosh. Good to know.

 

The report function is great for getting threads locked, but for moving threads wouldn't tagging a mod be the easier Solution? Might just be me that thinks this. :)

Why would tagging a mod be better? There's actually even auto-mod selection for threads to be moved. Reporting is still fastest as all mods will see it. Not just one you can see is shown to be online. As many of them will also browse hidden to prevent users from tagging them.

Yup, it's a great policy change, since it'd be a bit hypocritical to disallow Hackintosh discussions considering LTT has done a couple videos on it themselves.

 

No, using the report function is exactly the right option for getting a thread moved, as seen where it says "Posted in the wrong subforum" in the screenshot.

I didn't realize this was an option in the report tab. Thanks for the heads up. :D

What if someone wants to just quickly PM a mod and it doesn't matter which mod is PMed?

 

Half the time you don't know whether a mod is online or not because they Login anonymously which is deceptive and misleading.

Anonymous login in my eyes is an option used to hide the fact that a person's profile was viewed by a moderator, because thanks to that it doesn't show the viewer's profile in the "Recent Profile Visitors" section. I'm not sure what "deception" lies in this option that you're talking about. It's a necessary tool used primarily to track people notoriously violating the Community Standards of our forum.

We (the mods) do what we can to be as active and as much online as our real lives, jobs, families allow us to be. With that in mind it should be understandable that we cannot always be online and always "watching". If you have an issue that cannot be handled by a report as that obviously can happen, feel free to use the PM option, that's what it's for as well.

The point still stands though: If you see a post/thread that's in violation of Community Standards, the best way to inform moderation of this fact is through the Report function ;)

I see it as deception cos someone using it deceives another person into thinking a mod or admin hasn't seen something. The objective with that is to catch someone out and trick them which is deception.

Who are we supposed to PM then?

 

Often times in the past I've PMed a random mod who looked like they were online only to find out by the time I sent the PM they went offline or they took a long time to respond.

I usually PM someone who is visible much ( @SansVarnic, @wkdpaul, @Crunchy Dragon). Or just admins. But mainly thats when they've locked/cleaned something recently and I want to notify them about user(s) being at it again.
