I don't know if there is another thread. I didn't get appropiate topic from search. Let me know if there is , I will lock this topic.


To be honest, sometime I feel irritated to visit patrol due redirection of specific board after submit the report. When I report  a post from patrol, after submit a report browser redirect to the specific board that are belongs to reported post instead patrol page. So I need double click on back button to continue reporting from patrol. Not only from patrol same case also for a thread.

Say, I notice a thread on "Service Announcements (Altcoins)" with so many spam post. And I try to report them, after submit a report browser will redirect on the "Service Announcements (Altcoins)" instade of thread from I started report. So again need double click on back button. It's not really waste of time ? It's discouraged me to visit patrol page.

Example on current situation :
Patrol > report to moderator > write a comment & submit > board belongs to reported post > back > back > patrol.

IMO, it should be :
Patrol > report to moderator > write a comment & submit > patrol.

It's not fine to redirect from where I stated report ? I don't know if there is any setting on profile for that.

So I would like to suggest for implement that, after submit report, redirect on page / thread that we started reporting. Not on that board that reported post are belong.


I apologize for my broken English

I think this is just normal behavior of SMF. What you could do is hold CTRL + Click "report to moderator", and report it that way. Then you can just switch tabs once you've sent the report.  That's how I used to report anyway.

Patrol > report to moderator > write a comment & submit > patrol.
That would mean you have to "page down" (PgDn) about 30 times to get back to where you were reading. In the current situation, clicking back twice makes your browser go back to the right spot on the (very long) patrol page.

I think this is just normal behavior of SMF. What you could do is hold CTRL + Click "report to moderator", and report it that way. Then you can just switch tabs once you've sent the report.  That's how I used to report anyway.
I use my middle mouse button for the same result, it's easier.
Or, I use my right mouse botton, open "Report to moderator" in a new window, and handle it instantly without losing any of my other browsing.

I use the right mouse button too.
Right click one the link > Click on Open link in a new tab

After reporting I close that new tab, don't even bother to see which page I have redirected to. Solved!  Smiley

I knew there are few other methods to open a new tab from a link (ie: like Welsh said - CTRL + Click) but I guess I am too comfortable to try others  Cheesy

PS: Have I just created a redundant post which did not add anything new at all?  Grin
I just repeated LoyceV and Welsh

Easiest explanation so far, though welsh gave me a new "magic" for shortcut using my pc.

OP's suggestion is good for smartphone users, IMO. I'm not sure how to browse the internet using it, but it'll be much easier for both pc and smartphone users.

I hope theymos is not having a headache with many suggestions made on this forum so far.

I also found it annoying when I started reporting recently. I'm just using a mobile phone and it's really annoying to press back and wait (due to slow loading of Bitcointalk because of poor Internet connection) and sometimes it made me think about the same idea of yours. But lately, like those other replies, I've found out that long pressing the "report to moderator" link then open in new tab makes it easier when reporting. I don't know the reason why it redirect us to the board when reporting successfully instead of the thread /page where we report a posts.

But anyway, Opening in new tab really saves time. What a relief.

Yes it's working fine on pc. But most of time I am using mobile  Sad. However it's only temporary solution. But I think it will be more effective if redirect on parent page from where we started. I can't see any specific reason to redirect on board that post are reported from.
