I'm not sure if ManeTI plays KSP, actually, and he isn't a moderator. He's our forum IT guy. :)

We are engaged in a clandestine internal war of assassination and sabotage, battling for supremacy. 

From the dawn of time they came; moving silently down through the centuries, living many secret lives, struggling to reach the time of the Gathering; when the few who remain will battle to the last. No one has ever known they were amongst us... until now.

There... there can be only one?

when someone reports a post, do you see who reported it? or is it anonymous?

We see who reported it.  (That's pretty important, in case we have any questions.  It also discourages folks from abusing the report system.)

Note that reports include not just  "who reported", but also a note (assuming the reporter saw fit to enter one).  That's really important, because without that, we don't have the context of "what's the problem here?"  Sometimes it's pretty obvious (e.g. if the reported post is being blatantly abusive, or something)... but a lot of the time, it's not so obvious at first glance what the issue is, and telling us why you're reporting is a real timesaver for us.

One example of why the note is so important:  Users don't have all the context that moderators do.  It's not uncommon for users to report stuff that they simply don't like (but which actually isn't breaking any rules).  If they report such a post without a note, we're left scratching our heads-- "did they report it because they think this thing is a problem, which actually isn't?  Or is there some other problem somewhere that we're missing?"  Which wastes our time, looking into the matter.

So... feel free to report posts in any situation where you think a moderator's attention is required, but we'd appreciate it if you please include a note explaining why when you do so.  Doesn't need to be long.  Thanks!

Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. Just you wait until he starts adding to the Moderation Nation Observation Station.

He's managed to keep the pair of us from going prompt-critical so I reckon that speaks to his moderation skills. :)

I await with trepidation. My elevation. To the exaltation (not denigration) of the Moderation Nation Observation Station.

Yo.

That would require an abdication from the Moderation Nation, whose adjudication shall be in relation to the equation of the station's ablation abrasion allocation. And for what justification- the commercialization of our organization's bureaucratization?!?

Yo.

It's clear your cultivation. Of imagination. And education, needs no elucidation or further explication.

So I concede and beg you accept my humble resignation.

The Haitian to Croatian narration translation of your quotation's dictation demands a cessation. Damnation!

To a monster here has been given creation, yet sadly my “likes” have reached their devastation, so no more congratulation, what a sad situation. The very personification of lamenting cetaceans..

Also, my lunch was just stolen by a large Haitian, so...

Donation?:D
