I've tried reporting a post twice lately. Different posts each time. There was perhaps a week or two in between these attempts, I think.  I got an error message on both times.

Is there a limit to how many words one can type on the description box? I think I wrote about 3 sentences both times.

My errors in reporting always resulted from my messages being too long, or for having the pop-up open too long.

Here's a test post - please feel free to report it and test things like message-length to see what happens.

Nothing *too* rude about me in the comments please.... ;)

Thank you! It seems to be working now, no error messages. I reported your post twice, with one short message and another longer, 3-sentence message and both seemed to have went through all right! But, I'm on a different computer now too... I'll try from another computer, the one I usually use, a bit later, to see if it has something to do with that compurter's settings or something. I'm not what you'd call web savvy so please forgive me if I use some funny expressions...

Trace - can you report one of my posts in this thread and see if it happens again?

How long was the message you tried to enter?

What operating system are you using?

It worked when I just reported this one.  I'm not sure of the message length, I can try a longer one here.  I'm on a Windows 7 machine using Google Chrome.

I just tried again with the following message "I'm trying a longer message to see if that causes the problems.  The rain in Spain stays mainly... You know the rest.."  That one worked, so I don't think it was a length issue.

Maybe it would help if they posted a link to the message they were trying to report?

I would but I now hesitate very much to do so because I don't want to offend anyone or imply that someone on Permies is less than perfect. Moral dilemma! I do want to help. But I already messed up once today and got my post put on probation so I'm erring on the side of caution and not saying anything. P.S. I am sorry for the trouble I've caused.

Please educate me?

How do you report a post?

What parameters would cause you to report one?

Could you PM a moderator with a link?

These are several buttons on your post.  The first one is the "like" button, there is a "quote" button, and a "report" button.

I use this button to report a post that is spam.  Others use it like mention in this thread.

The report button is also for good things, like suggesting giving an apple to a good post.
