Report inappropriate threads, posts, projects and user profiles

Not right now

I think the website urgently needs a reporting system.


Users should be able to report:

  • Forum/Idea threads
  • Forum/Idea posts
  • Forge projects
  • User profiles

Here are two shady examples I've just spotted. A member of the community even posted spam related to an illegal activity.

Great point Caio. Recently forums and forge have been received a lot of inapropriate content. If the team don´t create some rules or process to filter or notify this content we will facing a lot of problems to find relevant things. 


Yes! MUST HAVE!

Great idea. Frustrating to see some of the spam/garbage that makes its way into the community. #keepourcommunityclean

@Caio Santana this is great and very much needed! 


@Justin Babel I love the hashtag #keepourcommunityclean   


For now, feel free to private message me any and all violations you see.


Thanks for helping to make our community better!

We need this option fast. 

We are getting too much spam in forums lately


Abílio Matos

I support this idea, forum is getting lately more and more spam and potential dangerous links.

Hi there

Marco Arede, why are you saying that? we currently have a pending flag to avoid sharing spam with the community. where did you usually find the spam?

Hi Caio, 

Currently, this option already exists only to MVPs and we will keep it like this. 

It is also available on the forge app.

Because of this, I’m marking this idea as “not right now”.

Nonetheless, thank you very much for your idea, and keep it coming. 

Thanks!

Merged this idea with 'Add a "flag"/"report" button to the community forum' (created on 17 Oct 2018 12:32:50 by Eric Bulters)

Today I saw a post that looked more like spam than a post that belonged here. 

and where there is 1 there probably will be more (now or later).

currently to get them removed or checked support or an admin has to be directly contacted. 

it would be nice if we as a community had the option to flag or report such post so support can focus on what they do best.

(Just a remark, a similar idea is also on another post here: https://www.outsystems.com/ideas/2520/report-inappropriate-threads-posts-projects-and-user-profiles)

Thanks!

Hi Ana,

Thanks for your question. 

Today I've reported some posts to a moderator, and those comments were already removed from the forum. However there is another one that I've noticed also: 

https://www.outsystems.com/forums/discussion/44237/help-us-improve-outsystems-take-the-developer-survey/

And this post is similar to the others (sending with a picture to make this one last):

Regards!

Hi Marco,


It seems that, since our website, don't support Japanese and other characters yet, they appear exactly with that same format"??????" and it has a url link for an external website. 


Cheers

Ana
