Do you think it would be helpful if you could select which rule you think a post/account has violated when making a report instead of having to type it out by hand?
@Gargron Only if the free-text field remains, for explaining why e.g. a certain symbol is antisemitic.
@Gargron If the list of rules is unambiguous with an additional: Other. Also should have an Additional Note to add context with the report.
@Gargron where would you get the rules from? Would admins have to enter all the bits of our terms of service into different text boxes so a user could pick bits?
What if the user is on a remote instance? Which list do you allow to pick from, or both?
Regardless you will always need a "not listed" option.
@Gargron yes but as others have mentioned leaving an "other" spot & "explanation" spot for writing details would help too.
@Gargron Yes. And would you mind improving content moderation on mastodon.social? Because it's pretty bad.
@Gargron My server's rules are defined as guidelines written in friendly language and are not strict enough to be an option for violating them.
I do not want to use this as an option for reporting.
For reporting, I want to define more specific categories of violations, so I want to define them in a different definition than the server rules.
