1. segnala ATTACKERS IMMEDIATELY. te are doing the entire community a favor as they are probably attacking other members.
te MUST PROVIDE AS MUCH EVIDENCE AS POSSIBLE IN THE segnala FIELD, including links to the attacks.
Attacks are personal insults, threats, bigotry, etc. A person saying they don't like a contribution is NOT an attack. Having a dibattito is also not an attack until insults/threats etc. are mixed in.
2. DO NOT ATTACK BACK. If te attack back, te are probably giving the attacker/troll what they want. We won't dig through 20 pages of reports to find out who started it. Most likely, both people will be banned.
3. Reporting is not a weapon. People who fraudulently segnala enemies, do not provide details, and/or repeatedly segnala people without providing evidence may also be removed from Fanpop.
This club has caused più problems here at fanpop HQ than all other club combined. That is not an exaggeration.
We've lifetime-banned several of the most troublesome users and deleted all of their content. In other words, there is no coming back for them. All their contributions are gone.
"But Fanpop, how can I avoid getting banned? I'm just a nice, honest A&O fan!"
Good question, my canine-loving friend. If someone picks a fight with you, DO NOT RESPOND, and immediately segnala it, and make sure te link to o quote the offending content. We absolutely need all the details. If te simply segnala the user without providing evidence, no action will be taken against them.
Also, we're talking about personal attacks, not normal human interactions.
A fan writes: "You suck and yo mamma sucks" ->You segnala them->Troll banned for life->You helped fanpop terminate a troll and made A&O a better place!
Another fan writes: "This was some interesting fanfic, but the first section is taken word-for-word from my work last week. Here's the link. Do te mind changing it o attributing it to me?"->They are NOT a Troll, NOT banned, te should change your fanfic immediately, and te just wasted everyone's time. That being said, if the fan started the post with a slur o insult, they would still be banned.
There's a saying that "you can get away with almost anything if te do it nicely." While we're not necessarily encouraging people to try to get away with stuff, the "nicely" part is the key takeaway.
dato the volume of content and literally millions of fans, we cannot go and dig through a thousand commenti to find out "who started it."
Think of it this way: if teachers and parents right now don't have time to figure out "who started it", imagine if one's parents had millions of children. Are they going to have time to sift through everything?
If te do respond to detto troll and there is a ton of back and forth, with both sides cussing each other out, both of te will be banned from ever joining fanpop again. There is a good chance moderators will cancella 100% of your content and strip your medaglie and caps, as well.
One final note: anyone posting explicit material will be banned for life without exception. The old, ugly motto has been changed, but the standards are the same, if not stricter.
The good news is that 99% of the users here are great people and not causing problems. Be cool and courteous with one another, report trolls immediately and every time WITHOUT responding to them
, and, together, we'll purge them from fanpop once and for all.
