    Have a think about this.

    If a moderator happens to see what you've written, then they can already see what you're complaining about. In future, you should use the 'report' button if you wish to draw attention to a post or thread.

    What you're doing by making these complaints visible to all, could be considered trolling, retaliation, topic hijacking, or retaliation, and opens yourself up to a warning or other moderation actions.

    Just a heads-up ;)

    Sorry, as a new member to mmorpg.com's forums, I'm not really that familiar with the "do's and don't's" of  mmorpg.com's forums.  I thought the report function was only to report on thread or posts that are offensive in nature.  I don't know which category should I've reported this thread on.  Other? Maybe? Do forgive me if I seemed to be trolling, retaliating, or topic hijacking and/or whatnot.  I was only trying to provide advice to better mmorpg.com's forums.  I did so with another user's thread and a forum moderator, Vaross, was kind and friendly enough to appreciate my help on the issue of wrong categorisation and moved that user's thread to the appropriate forum.  Sorry, I couldn't show you the screenshot for your quick reference, so, I'll just provide you the link to the said thread to show you evidence.  Here's the link: http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/422699 I know you mean me well and not all moderators are not going to be like Vaross, but, taking Vaross' actions towards me into account and my humble tone used in advising others, I think the chances that my actions could incur the offences of trolling, topic hijacking, or retaliation, and opening yourself up to a warning or other moderation actions is unlikely.  But of course, thank you for your advice, Darwa.

    Yes, Darwa is correct, you don't need to create a public thread, just use the "report" category, I do it frequently for off topic threads.
