There are several occasions that may warrant the need to report a post to the moderator, for either editing or removal. It is important that all forum users know how to do this. We all are prone to spelling mistakes, uploading incorrect files, or accidentally posting before we’re ready. Additionally, sometimes another user may post inappropriate or offensive content. In these situations, it is very important to flag the posts as soon as you see them, as that type of behavior is not tolerated on our boards.
In order to report something to the forum moderator, you will need to take the following steps:
Here, you will need to write an explanation of why you are reporting this particular post. This is a very important step because without any reasoning behind your request, the moderator does not have justification for performing and actions.
Once you click Notify Moderator, an email with the request will be sent to the moderator. The issue is typically addressed within a business day, if action is warranted.
Please keep in mind that we are not keen on removing posts because “the issue was solved” or because assistance is no longer needed. These threads are public collaborative spaces and even if you no longer need the answer to the posted question, someone else may benefit from it. Therefore, we strive to avoid removing threads that contain potentially useful information related to NI Products.
We will remove accidental duplicate posts. We will remove spam, abusive messages, and confidential files/personal information.
Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
