Here at YWS, the moderators and administrators are committed to making this site safe and enjoyable for every member. Unfortunately, from time to time, there can be instances that disrupt this.

Whenever that happens, it is important that you let us know. But when should you report? Where is the line between behavior that is appropriate and behavior that is not?

Do not hesitate to report a member if they are making you feel uncomfortable in any way, including:

- Being personally insulting and/or absolutely rude towards your work or the work of others in and outside of reviews
- Threatening you in any way
- Linking you to an outside source that makes you feel uncomfortable
- Sharing inappropriate sexual material or having conversations along similar lines with you
- Continuing to ask for your personal information after you have expressed that you do not wish to give it

To report something, you can click the report button in the upper right-hand corner of the post in question or PM a junior moderator, moderator or administrator about the situation. The moderators will take appropriate action. Also, if there is someone making you feel uncomfortable and you are unsure as to whether their behavior is worth being reported, report it anyway. We'll decide if anything needs to be done.

Please note that you can always remain anonymous if you so choose. Your report will always be kept confidential to ensure your maximum safety.

Read this for more information and guidance: Internet Safety.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask below, or PM a mod and we can clarify!

What about reporting threads? I clicked on a link someone gave me, and it came up with a bunch of stuff saying that I needed to contact an administrator, and send them a copy of what they were saying... But, I've been trying to find out how to send a copy ( I'm trying to find out how to post pictures! ), and altough they said it was important, I'm not really sure!?

I'm just super confused! DX

Anyone else love the term troll? :3
Don't waste a minute not being happy. If one window closes, run to the next window- or break down a door.

The happiest people seem to be those who have no particular cause for being happy except that they are so.

Be happy.
