Despite the fact that trolling has been filtered extremely well by our current moderators, we understand that there are still evildoers lurking in the forums. You can help us delete them by posting in this thread. Posting here will 1) keep the Feedback and Updates forum nice and clean as well as 2) help moderators spot and squish the little pests they didn't catch on their own!

Please link to their account or the thread in which they are trolling and give a quick description of what's going on (harassment, spam, etc.)

Friendly reminder: Do NOT engage conversation with a troll. Do NOT try to insult the troll. Simply ignore them until a moderator can take control of the situation. Trolls are looking for a reaction, and by responding, you are "feeding" them exactly what they want.


Not sure if you're doing it right, or have questions? Check out this dandy Q&A.

Q: What exactly is a troll?
A troll is someone on the internet who "floods" or "spams" several messages in a short amount of time. They can do this by creating multiple threads at once, or by submitting several messages in a thread, clogging it up. They might also harass you as well as other users to achieve a goal that is ultimately to annoy you and make you feel unwelcome. Do note that people being a jerk is NOT the same thing as being a troll. Harassment is often done over long periods of time, and is different from occasional backlash caused by personal fights.

Q: Do I need to report people in this thread or can I make one on my own?
By all means, you can make your own thread. You can also complain within your own "Personal" thread as well, if that's easier than posting here. However, keep in mind the main point this thread was created was in order to help moderators and regular users alike in lowering the appearance rate of trolls. We may not spot reports made in your own thread.

Q: I can't link accounts. What do I do?
Don't panic, friend! You can share likes when you reach a Junior status. If you haven't gotten there, it's still possible to report! Take a link that looks like this:


And post it like this:
gotoquiz.com/profile/dark22978

All you need to do is remove http:// or www(.) to be able to share user profiles or proof of spam. There is also the option of just posting the users' name or the thread's name.


Still not sure if you're dealing with a troll or not? That's fine. Any active moderator will review your report and can help you determine what action to take. Stay safe and enjoy your time on the forums!
