    More often than not, we see threads/posts that are not allowed on BHW.
    For example:
    - Selling outside BST
    - Stereotyping
    - Shares in the DOWNLOADS section while the item is on Do Not Share list
    etc etc...

    And what many of us do is, post in the thread telling the OP that this is not allowed. That is not right, it makes the thread bump to the front page of BHW and gets more eyeballs on it which is pointless.

    The right way is to use the [​IMG] button located on the upper right corner of the post box.

    If you find something that is against BHW rules, instead of posting in that thread,
    1. Click on the "Report" button.
    2. Explain in a sentence or two why you're reporting this. e.g. "On the DNS list".
    3. Mods will take care of it.

    Have a great sunny weekend.

    EDIT: Mods, please move this to The Lounge if you think I posted this in the wrong section. I wasn't sure. :)

    I report a few threads every day (and I can tell mod react lightning fast, as they get deleted in no time)

    And you're very right to encourage everyone to do this as well when they spot these threads to help keep BHW clean.

    Thanks bk071 . . . It's a good reminder, since we are
    always getting new members who may not be aware
    of some of the procedures and possible actions to
    take, such as the ones you mentioned above. :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Thanks a lot for this reminder, bk! I realize I haven't been using the "report" button as much as I should have.

    I think we need to make this thread sticky in the lounge.

    I've seen senior members of BHW posting in the threads like
    but not using the report button which is actually the right thing to do.

    For example this thread has been live for over 4 days and a couple of guys have told the OP to take this down. If they had used the report button, that thread would have been gone long ago. (BTW, I've now reported the thread).
