If you see content in forum discussions that you feel violates our Community Standards, you can report these potential violations. In addition, if you believe a user has put content in their profile that violates the Community Standards or you just believe the user in general is a violator of the Community Standards, you can report that user in general.
At this time, the "report" feature is only functional on message board discussions and user profile screens, not on wiki documents. If you wish to report a Community Standards violation on a wiki document, please send a private message to one of the Moderators or email forums at pcworld dot com.
When you are reading a thread/topic in a forum, you should notice that every post will have a Report button that has a yellow triangle on it in the lower left corner of the post. If you find a post that you believe contains a potential violation of the Community Standards, then click on that button for the post your believe violates the Standards.
As a result, the page will change to a "Report this post to a moderator" page. It will contain a text box where you can enter in why you are reporting the post. Please enter your reason for reporting the post. When done, click the Submit Report button.
That is it. That will then flag that post with your report.
When you go to a user's Profile, you should see a Report Member button in the upper right corner of their Profile. If you believe the user violates the Community Standards in general or has content on their Profile that violates the Standards (i.e. such as a Profile Photo, Avatar, or signature that might violate the Community Standards), then click on the Report Member button.
As a result, you will be taken to the "Report this profile to a moderator" page. It will contain a text box where you can enter in why you are reporting the user. Please enter your reason for reporting the user. When done, click the Submit Report button.
That is it. That will then flag that user with your report.
