Help:Extension:Report

The Report extension adds a mechanism for users to privately report revisions of pages for admin attention, as well as mechanism for admins to handle such reports.

User UsageEdit

Finding a RevisionEdit

First, find the problematic revision that needs attention. There will be a link to report it on either the diff:

 

Or on the history entry:

 

Once found, click the link.

Filling Out ReportEdit

Clicking the report link will bring the user to Special:Report.

 

Fill out the reason that this revision is being reported, then click "Submit report".

An admin will eventually handle the report. It is their decision whether to notify the reporter, as well as what timeframe to handle reports in.

Admin UsageEdit

Finding ReportsEdit

Much like Extension:ConfirmAccount , there will be a banner at the top of Special:RecentChanges when there are new reports to handle:

 

Clicking that link will bring the user to Special:HandleReports.

 

Handling ReportsEdit

 
A report after being handled.

Clicking a "view report" link will bring the user to view that report:

 

After taking any actions that might be required, such as hiding revisions, posting talk page messages, etc., making use of the links and information displayed, click "Mark as handled". The user will be redirected back to Special:HandleReports to take care of any other outstanding reports.
