We’ve all been there.
You’re reading an article or a Facebook post only to get to the comments section and find it spammed with offensive or inappropriate comments taking over the thread.
I don’t like that and I like to think that the majority of readers are with me.
That’s why we’ve enabled you to report comments in the Crowd Content Community.
If you’re reading through the comments and you see something that raises a red flag in your mind, go to the drop arrow on the top right of the comment. Click Report.
You’ll then be asked to provide a bit more detail about why you are reporting the comment.
Flags are a way to bring a comment to the attention of the moderators.
You also have the option of downvoting a comment to notify the moderator.
Hide from Me means that you can simply hide the comment from showing on just your screen. You’re not reporting the author, but rather disappearing a comment from your sight.
Once you’ve provided some context, click Flag Comment.
Hint: make sure you’re signed into your Community account when you’re reporting a comment.
Soon we’ll be rewarding you for moderation activity (reporting inappropriate comments). All the activity you do now will count towards future rewards… as long as you’re signed in.
Be careful not to report comments just to earn coins. If your flag is dismissed by the moderator, it will count against you in the long run.
As Community continues to grow, so will your opportunity for advancement within Community.
We’ll be introducing moderation roles that you could be eligible for if you’ve been involved in previous moderation activity. Soon you could be the moderator, responsible for reviewing flagged comments and getting rewarded for it.
