How does the reporting system work?
When a post is reported, how many staff are notified?
Is it only the staff that addresses the report that sees it, or do all staff see them?
How often are reports checked?
How many staff are responsible for responding to reports?
When you’re logged in as staff there’s a dashboard at the top of the page, and it shows how many reports there are. All staff can see the report, but whoever looks at it can mark that it’s been seen and then it goes away. There isn’t really a set system for who checks reports and how often, it’s just addressed by whoever happens to be on and sees it first.
Okay. Thanks for the reply.

Does this mean that staff only see reports so long as they're currently browsing /mlpol/?
Yes, the reports are only viewable from inside the system, so the only way for staff to see them is if they are logged in and browsing the site.
When a post gets reported, is the poster who made the report (IP hash, posting password, etc) visible to the staff that reads the report?
May I inquire why are you so interested on the inner workings of /mlpol/?
Because I use the site and I'm interested in transparency? What do you think /qa/ is for?
And while we're on that topic, the reason why I asked that particular question was to know if /mlpol/ has a means to counter bot-led abuse of the reporting system.
>>8665>means to counter bot-led abuse of the reporting system
Have any source for that? Or it is just an idea?
>>8666>is just an idea?
Yes. Why would I need a source for a hypothetical idea?
>>8666>Have any source for that?
This thread is the source for that kind of information.
In the interest of transparency, here is a full rundown of how our reporting system currently works:>is the poster who made the report visible?
Yes. Every report includes the IP, name, address, phone number, vaccination status, approximate geolocation, and waifu of the user making the report. The system automatically ranks every report according to quality of waifu. Reports made by users with shit waifus are ignored.>do staff only see reports while browsing?
At present yes. However, our engineering department is currently developing the MLPOL paging system. When this system is complete, each staff member will be required to carry a pager on their physical person at all times. Whenever a report is made, the pager will immediately blast the song "Janny Are You Okay" by Michael Jackson at an extremely loud volume. The staff member will then have a maximum of 60 seconds to log in and view the report. Should they fail to do so, the system will automatically forward their browser history to the FBI, along with a complex AI-generated psychological profile of the staff member based on waifu choice.
Eventually, when the technology becomes available, we hope to employ NeuraLink connectivity, allowing all staff to monitor every last bit of autism that gets posted to this site in real time, without the need for complex reporting systems, distractions, hobbies or sleep.serious answer: reports include the hashed IP of both the person making the report and the poster of the reported thread. Staff can use the hashed IPs to check post histories of both users. As to whether or not bots could potentially abuse the reporting system, I would have to let Pupper field that one because I'm not sure. I do know that we've had human users abuse the report system before. If done frequently enough and with obvious malicious intent, it can lead to bans.
Thank you for the reply. This answers my question and more.>Staff can use the hashed IPs to check post histories of both users.
Interesting. I would imagine this plays a role in decision making.
