Overview

There might be a need to let the moderators of the site know about a particular upload page such as any of the following reasons (but not limited to just these):

  • Illegal content
  • Dishonorable content (uploaded against authors wishes)
  • No file attached (for more than 48 hours)
  • Broken download link
  • Bogus file (joke, virus, non-related junk)
  • False information

To report these kinds of issues, there are currently two ways you can report the file:

Method #1 - Quick-N-Easy for end-user reporting

Use the "Report File" button on the mod page.

If the problem is described well enough by the category you pick, then do not worry about adding a description.

The above method is fast to report but moderators have to access the admin area and run a report to see the issue which may mean it will not be handled in the same day.

Method #2 - More end-user clicks but faster visibility for moderators

Click the "Comments" tab, then click the "Report this Comment" for the very first post made which is usually the Plugin Manager / Site Bot.
