The Backstage Forums are a place for holding healthy, robust, and civil conversations. However, on occasion someone will devolve into behavior that is inappropriate and that doesn't meet the standards of the Backstage Community Guidelines. In these cases, we ask that our users help police the forums by reporting the post. Reported posts may be deleted, edited, or otherwise altered, and repeat offenders may be banned from using the forums altogether.
Here's a general overview of posts that should be reported. Please see the Backstage Community Guidelines for more details.
Any language that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. Sexual, racial, or ethnic slurs will not be tolerated in any form and are ground for banning after the first offense.
Images of a sexual or profane nature are discouraged.
Full transcriptions of articles and whole or partially-scanned images (e.g. magazine scans) are prohibited.
Self-Promotion and Spam
The creation of new threads promoting a product or service you have any involvement in, or the pasting of PR materials for promotional purposes is not allowed. Neither is advertising within an existing conversation thread.
How to Report a Post
When you have identified a questionable posting, click on the 'Report this Post' button at the bottom of the post itself.
A dropdown will appear asking you to select a reason why you're reporting the post. Once selected, click on the 'Report Post' button.
This will deliver a notification to the Backstage Community moderators, who will review the post and determine if an action needs to be taken.
