    When to use triangle?

    It is a small black triangle at the bottom of each post -

    It specifically state to only use it to report the following:

    Note: This is Only to be used to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts.

    Are there any other instances when it might be appropriate to use it?

    Examples:
    too much personal information - such as a phone number, etc.
    a post of some "importance" that seems to have been posted to a non-relevant thread and perhaps should be moved?

    It can be used to report any issue. I like to see it used instead of a PM to a particular moderator because the issue is then handled by the first moderator to get to it... instead of waiting for the PM'd moderator who may be unavailable for many reasons.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    From the way it was worded, I got the impression it was only to report "bad" things.

    there are many things on the QB that don't work they way they are described, or that their purposes have changed. If the triangle gets something 'fixed' in an expeditious way, I say 'go for it'

    If that is the case then the rules/descriptions/instructions need to be updated. It is ridiculous to get cited for an infraction of QB rules when that rule isn't clearly stated and posted, has changed, directly contradicts itself with another rule (or even in the same rule), doesn't work the way it is described or subject to different interpretations. It is no wonder the QB is a mere shadow of what it used to be in terms of active participants. Many have left or worse yet banned due to different interpretations of the QB rules or feeling bullied because a rule they were accused of breaking isn't clearly defined and posted.

    members are not banned for an 'interpretation' of the rules... banning is for clear violations after multiple warnings. an example of a 'thing' that does not work as intended is the huge amount of PDA the swaps forums... that is not their intended use, but we let it go. there are other examples, but too much to be listed here.

    What does PDA mean?

    PDA is also frequently used for "Public Displays of Affection"

    Before I asked, I googled PDA. https://www.google.com/search?q=PDA&...=silk&ie=UTF-8 Yeah, not that type of PDA!
