Hi all,

Is there any "rules page" or other way to get a handle on the basics of flagging? Like, I'm gonna look through this forum, of course, but I mean, the REAL basics - I just figured out that a blue flag is a "not a review" flag and not a "good" flag! Is this set out anywhere, or are people just expected to keep their eyes and ears open? Thanks.

If you want to know about flagging reviews in particular, you can check here. Feel free to ask questions as well.

Um, to be perfectly honest, the best place I know of to see what the flags mean is in the pop-up text that appears when you go to flag a review. It says right there by the blue flag "Click here to flag this as not a review" and by the red flag "Click here to flag this as a violation of the terms of service", with a brief explanation (that "not a review" doesn't mean a short or poorly-written review, and with a link to the TOS") for each. If that wasn't clear enough, I don't think there's anywhere else that it's clearer.

>2 christiguc:: Thanks very much!

>3 lorax:: Well, but I've had a couple of reviews red-flagged (Moby-Dick and The Brothers Karamazov), and been back to the TOS a couple of times, and I'm no further ahead as to where the violations is. I suppose these things are always interpretive. But thanks!

>4 MeditationesMartini: People do mis-flag sometimes--that is why there is a green flag. If you disagree, you can remove a flag (even red ones).

4> Not a review" is admittedly subjective for the edge cases -- if someone had just put the price in the review field and had that blue-flagged it would probably be pretty obvious why. I'll admit I have no idea why people would have red-flagged your reviews, though I never saw the original version. I green-flagged the blue flag, so that should fix itself soon enough.
