    Lately there has been a rash of trolls hitting the forums. Please remember that these trolls crave attention, that's why they do what they do. Please do not feed the trolls. Do not reply to their posts, do not acknowledge their existence publicly. Please just report the thread and move on. I will start handing out temp bans to people who feed the trolls. Consider this post your warning.

    Ok, call me stupid, but I am not very computer literate. What is a troll? This has been bugging me for a while, among other words and such i don't understand.

    A troll is someone who gets on and just posts random crap to piss of the forum, thereby gaining their attention. It's animosity and negative attention, but it's attention nonetheless.

    Acknowledge who? Who is that? What are you talking about?

    But on a more serious note, if you see someone trolling, just report it. You have no idea how annoying it is to see people fueling the flame.

    I tried typing out like to around 20 or so characters, but it didn't work. But, I'll try to type even more next time. Thanks.

    On the interwebz it is. On mobile you click on their name or anywhere around it besides the avatar and it will bring up a page like so:

    On the computer (or full website version), it's this button [​IMG], located on the bottom left side of EVERY post. If you think a user is breaking the rules or doing something improper, simply hit the button, input a reason and submit.
    It goes straight to the staff and WE address it as seemed fit.



    On the App, on the right side of the poster's name there's a Blue Down-facing arrow, click that, then report and follow the steps as previously described.
