Okay...Why can you report yourself?

I can't take it anymore, I have to ask this question... Why is it that you can report yourself?

  • [url=http://i41.tinypic.com/34oqxpe.png]You can.[/url] Just because the button doesn't show up doesn't mean it's impossible.

Now why can't I report you?[/quote]

I feel like if there is, this is one of those rare occasions to promote the report button with it =P

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Top_Gun_2021 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Delta 15t The things that drive us nuts huh? I'll bet it was left there because what ever code is used just puts it on everyones post, including your own. The report button that is. Of course you can't report a Moderator or Bungie staff, but it's probably a lot of work to take it out of everyones individual posts. I'm sure there are more important things to tend to. Just a guess here. ~Delta[/quote] I think the fix was easy, but Achronos thought it was too funny to fix. [/quote] Well that also. ~Delta

  • So, If people report themselves, the mods can see that in their queue, how many times have they actually banned someone for reporting themselves?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 For the EXACT same reason I can ban myself. Self-flagellation. It's all the rage in some countries. You should try it sometime.[/quote] When I read the title of the thread, you were the first thing that popped into my head: Recon bans himself. Funny blam! right there... OT: why not?
