New Reported Post System is Live in Forums

One of the ways our moderator team keeps the XDA forums clean is through the Reported Post system. If a member spots a post from a troublesome poster, a thread with illegal content, or posts that break XDA rules, they can report the post with the exclamation icon present on every post. Since XDA is so big, it gets difficult to manage the dozens of RPs we receive each day, especially with the lackluster built-in RP tools that vBulletin provides. Today, we’ve rolled out a vastly improved RP system that is based on custom code.

The new RP system is most changed on the side that you don’t see. The system now will notify the Forum Specific Mod when they have a pending RP through a pop-up notification when they log in to XDA. Each RP is then placed into a queue that has advanced tracking capability plus the ability to be “claimed” by a moderator. This way, we can keep tabs on every reported post, and act on them as quickly and efficiently as possible.

On the user end, we’ve simplified the RP form. No longer do you need to PM a mod with a problem. Just fill in the form, choose a reason for the report, and that’s it! To avoid inundating our moderators with countless RPs, please only report a post when there is truly a reason to do so.

We should also mention that the new RP system only works on the XDA 2010 template, and not Classic. While we’ll always have the Classic template (for those of you that like the vintage yellow!), new features will continue to hit XDA 2010 template.

Finally, we ask that you be patient as we all work out any bugs in the new RP system. It will take us a few days before we smooth out any kinks. Thanks for your patience.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
