"reporting post" by accident - should I do something?

Post by restless » Wed Jun 13, 2018 6:45 am

I clocked few times "report" button by accident - somehow I thought I'm clicking "quote" button
Is there something to do to save unneeded work for admins and them scratching heads why the post was reported?
Thanks

Well.. you could always enter a message..

"Oops.so sorry guys.. my stupid sausage fingers hit the wrong button - again!"

As 'mea culpa'.. & rely on the mod-team's ( considerable) forebearance..

- "By accident"? Be proud of your snitching ways :wink:.

wait a minute. I thought only report a post when you click on submit on the "report the post" prompt. Or do I misunderstand something massively?

There we go. No reports have been filed because you do need to click submit afterwards. Just clicking the "!" button will not submit the report. So @Restless, you can sleep easy, although maybe a bit difficult with that username :lol: .

Thanks, I was really embarrassed realizing what my click target was :)
