How Reported Posts are handled on GRF.
This is just informational purposes on how the Mod team works on Reported Issues.
First off let me just say being a Mod here is a lot of work. I am not going to get into all the duties they perform but will just focus in on issues from reported posts that are submitted. GRF Moderators are not required to read every post submitted everyday so there are times the team may not be aware of issues brewing in a particular thread. If something gets reported we will all be alerted. The entire Mod team will review the reported post and discuss if any action is required or not. Every reported post is voted on, and a majority vote from the entire mod team decides if an issue will be pursued further. If so, the action to be taken will be then voted on by the team as well. So if someone is issued any action upon them this has come from a discussion from the entire Mod group, not the Mod that may contact you. Any action taken against a member is strictly just between that member and the Mod team.
Why is it done this way? More eyes = more points of view and not one mod has complete control, or can be singled out. We have been using this method on how to handle reported posts for many years now . They work as a team and though not every voting situation is unanimous the majority vote is what is they go by. So though you may not agree or understand a ruling, just know that this has come from a group review.
