Making safety easier Answered
I have seen many users ask questions like "how do you report a user" and " is there a button for flagging a user after I flag the instructable?"
Well I myself already know but that doesn't help the other few million users(wow) that don't know. After this forum post I plan on emailing firstname.lastname@example.org but maybe there is another way. I was thinking that maybe an admin could send a private message to every new and old user saying that the way to report a user is to go to the about page https://www.instructables.com/about/ click on an instructables team member then to send them a private message telling them what the user did, where and why it should be removed( user and/or instructable). It would be even better if the instructables team got together and made groups open to the public again. I did some research and groups used to be easy to get to https://www.instructables.com/edit/new?type=group but if you copy and paste this and try to go to it it won't work. I did some more research and it seems that all the current groups are run by businesses or companies. I just want to make things easier for the average user so that we can make this a more enjoyable site. Also I would like to make a group for younger users so that we can post instructables to each other. It would be cool to have our own circle.
