Just a simple question, If you're travelling in a car at the speed of light, and you turn your lights on, do they do anything?

 

If you don't want to answer that, it's fine as my real question was...

 

On the Community Index, or Forum Page, one can hover (or mouseover) a username, and have options, Like seeing the Avatar Picture, Rating, a 'Find Content' Button, and a 'Send PM' Button, and of course the add/remove friend button, amongst other information.

 

Would it be possible to add a 'Report this User' button to that Menu?

Hell, while I'm asking, How bout a 'Block User' on the same menu?

You can do that on their profile.

You can block users posts from being shown.

No because the power requirements to make a car travel at such a speed would drain the battery.

Yes, but it would be a quicker way to block, or in the context that I'm asking, 'report' a user, just like how one can send a pm just by 'hovering' over the username,

Basically, removing a step or two   :)

Are you sure, as a hyperdrive engine is just that, an engine....?

I think it would be a good idea to have a block/report option in there.

 

Personally the pop ups annoy me (when you hover by accident) so I block them.

I do understand your point, but in all fairness, couldn't you just move the mouse to another part of the page?

Not that there's anything wrong with how you choose to view the site (just to clarify) :)

I could, but it is a very very rare time that I actually look at anyone's profile, so it is more convenient for me to hide them than accidentally have them show

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't reporting a post technically like reporting the user.

In a way, yes, but I was thinking more about a one step method of reporting, or blocking a user without clicking on said user's profile. If it can't be done that's ok too.

lol no just a faster way (for me at least) to report spammers. Something I actively participate in doing as the moderation of the website is also partly our responsibility.
Like if many users report some guy advertising porn, or some method to watch movies or buy fake passports and crap like that, (the system in place fir this is great)
Then there's users that spam in their status updates.
I'm faster looking for a report this user on mouseover than clicking on their profile, rather than clicking the profile.

OK I get what you mean about blocking, but for reporting a post (basically user) it is located at the bottom right hand side of every post, so you don't have to access their profile to report them.
