Feature Request: Report post button for forum

Catégorie:Demande d'amélioration
Attribué:Non assigné


Add a "report post" button on the forums where users can report problematic posts.


Allow the community to be self-monitoring and reduce problems within the community.


  • A "report post" is added to the forum where users can report violations of the community guidelines [3], spam [4], and other problems.
  • It has been proposed that that we try to strengthen project leadership by distributing tasks in the community [2]. Many users are committed to helping the project [4] and on an almost daily basis report spammers to be removed.
  • I propose that we use a "distributed trust" type model to solve these problems in our community. Users can volunteer and are given access to the "reported post queue" and are able to "vote" on the response that should be taken to the post. These responses could include "delete post", "ban user", "do nothing". Users would also be assigned a "level of trust" based on their history with the community. For example, volunteers could be assigned level 1, 2, or 3. It would take consensus from 3 "level 1 users" to get a user banned or deleted, but a level 3 user would be fully trusted and can delete posts/ban users without consulting anyone (e.g. quidam).

Intended results

  • More community participation. The users help maintain the quality of the community.
  • Improved spam fighting capability

I'm all for this. Well articulated as well.

0) We really need this feature. Maybe it will be implemented faster if we add it as a task: https://trisquel.info/en/tasks

1) ZERO tolerance to trolling. In my opinion, if you can't show respect and politeness you shouldn't be part of this community. PERIOD!

2) It would be really great if volunteers could form a team(community team) and work together on this type of issues.
