We introduced a new procedure yesterday that enables any user to report a submission (and the moderation and comments involved in that submission) as being incorrect. You will see this link at the [b]bottom right of the submission history detail page[/b] for the submission. This procedure is available for up to 31 days after the final moderation on the submission.
The purpose of this procedure is to allow us to ‘meta moderate’ submissions, moderations, and comments. This will allow submitters or other users to point out possible errors in judgement from moderators, submitters, or users who add comments, and for us to try to resolve such issues in an efficient and fair manner, without having to resort to forum posts (which usually don’t resolve much anyway, potentially involve conflict, and which all parties involved in the submission do not necessarily see).
The overriding goal is to help point out errors or misapplied rules, and alert all involved in the submission to these. Hopefully, this will let us ensure the guidelines are being applied and followed in a consistent manner, as well as giving submitters an outlet if they feel they have been wrongly moderated.
I hope everyone finds positive benefit in this new system. If you use it, please be sure you have a valid complaint, and please give full, detailed, and clear notes regarding the error. If you receive a complaint against you, please do not take it personally, simply review your application of the guidelines for future cases.
