    To everyone else: use it! The mods have been great about acting quickly every time I have lately.

    To the powers that be: I just reported my own post in a thread because I wanted a mod to look it over and make sure I was communicating something about the rules properly to another member. Is it okay that I did that? I ask because on the post-reporting page it says:

    "Note: This is ONLY to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts. "

    However, I have seen some mods mention lately that it's fine to use the "report post" button to request that mods close FS threads, make thread title changes, etc. Just want to make sure we're all on the same page here as far as what we can use post reporting for.

    A small issue, sorry to take your time.

    yes. please don't abuse it though. if you want your title changed multiple times per day it wont be good.

    Perhaps title changes would be better done this way.
