So I had another post hidden by the community. I did not frankly know if it was in the right category or not; I have since changed the category, but instead of flagging a post because it’s deemed off-topic, why don’t people recommend the correct category?
That’s exactly what I thought! If the post is in the wrong category, why not just tell the person who posted it?
Exactly. It would save the poster unnecessary embarrassment and save Sydney wasted time. It’s honestly the decent thing to do; the community ought to respect each other
Honestly, this happens a lot! I completely agree with you, it gets so frustrating when you just made a thread about something you want answers to or need guidance with. Then boom, flagged. Why? No idea
