How to Submit a Report of Inappropriate or Concerning Activity

Post by IG Team » Mon Mar 06, 2017 11:39 pm

Before submitting a report about a member’s tone or choice of words, please take a moment to review and consider whether it could be an issue of language barriers or a cultural misunderstanding. Both the forums and Facebook group has diverse membership and misunderstandings are going to happen.

Activity related to topics and/or replies on the forums
Please use the built-in forum reporting system to inform us of any activity you feel needs to be reviewed. To report a post, please click on the exclamation mark icon on the right side of the post:

This will bring you to the report form. In your report, please be as detailed as possible on why you feel something needs to be reviewed, as it is not always immediately obvious to the moderating team that a particular issue might be problematic.

Activity related to behaviour on Facebook
In addition to using the Facebook reporting function, please contact one (or more) of the IG Facebook Group moderating team to explain why the post or reply needs to be reviewed. Unlike the forum reporting system, the Facebook reporting system does not allow for a user to elaborate on an issue, and it may not be immediately obvious to the moderating team what the issue is.

To report a poste on Facebook, the method is the same both on the web and mobile version: click on the little arrow on the far right of the post. A menu will drop down with the option to report the post. Click on report:

Activity related to behaviour outside of forums and Facebook group
If you are aware of concerning behaviour of a forum or Facebook member offsite (whether it is slandering of members or moderating team, scamming, stalking online or in person, or other concerning behaviour), please use the contact form to notify the moderating team in detail:

Administration Contact Form

While we cannot moderate member behaviour on other websites, we will review the situation and determine if it requires action on Immortal Geisha websites and groups.

Activity related to a member of the moderating team
If you are concerned about the activity of a member of the moderating team, whether on the forums, on Facebook or offsite, please send a private message to a moderator you trust explaining the situation. The moderator will then chose the best course of action to handle the situation and report back to you.
