How many times can you post a reminder?

    I've noticed one artist who has posted a reminding of a YCH he is soliciting buyers for. This is the third time he has posted this reminder. He posts, deletes, posts, deletes, and posts again.

    I can only assume that he does this to get it back on the front page of FA again and again, but it keeps showing up in my notifications after having deleted it twice. It gets annoying.

    Is this actually allowed?

    So nope, it's not allowed. If you report it, it'll be looked into - though if you know the user posts and removes reminders repeatedly, providing both the link to the reminder and to their profile is going to be very helpful to our AUP Enforcement staff.

    Is there a hope that we get a more comfortable system for reporting AUP-breaking artwork, though? Tickets are tiresome to use, and several times I tried to, I had to wait for response for days, so now when I see crapton of reminders or porn pics in "General" category, I'm like, "Well, I'll just try to ignore it, not worth my time reporting this stuff". I believe I'm not the only one with such line of thought, and in my opinion it's one of the primary reasons why FA is so damn messy as of now.

    Not to spiral off-topic here, but I have to agree with nerdbat here about the reporting via TT, it's tiresome as the wait times are sometimes so long that the offending content is gone long before the ticket is answered.

    Possibly, but I don't know if it's something that's planned before the site rewrite is done. Revamping the ticket system would be quite a sizeable undertaking.

    Generally speaking straightforward AUP violations like reminders and misrated content should get handled quite promptly, though. Doesn't mean content might not get removed before staff can get to the report, but ultimately the purpose of reports and staff intervention is primarily to ensure that site policies are followed, not to punish the offenders.
