The reason should be described in detail, just write "thank you" or "help" you can, but at the same time it will be completely unclear to others what the user actually helped. Comments on the change of reputation such as "+", "-", other incomprehensible signs, smiles are not a satisfactory reason for the change of reputation and can be removed by the decision of the moderator. At the same time, the reputation history will be displayed for which message in which topic the reputation has changed, additionally in the comments to the change you do not need to give links. You can view the user's reputation history by clicking on the number indicating the number of reputation - it is located between "-" and "+".
Any member of the forum who has collected 15 useful forum messages can change the reputation of other users. If you have less, then click on the "COMPLAINT" button of the desired message and clearly describe the request to the moderator and the reason for the change in reputation, for example, "put a friend plus, it really helped with this message with the firmware of the device."
If the forum member helped you in personal correspondence or by other means besides the forum, you can increase your reputation through the profile. At the same time, try to describe the reason in detail in the comment to the change of reputation, since here links to the message for which the reputation is changed, will not.

35. Automatic Reduction of Warn Levels
  1. We have a system for automatically reducing Warning Levels. This means that now the User does not need to contact the Moderator to reduce it. The reduction will be made automatically after 90 days from the moment of its issuance.
  2. A 20% reduction in Warning Levels will now occur after 90 days. It is impossible to speed up this process. Moderators are no longer engaged in downgrades, the system keeps track of everything.
  3. If an erroneous increase in the Level of Alerts is detected, the Moderator can cancel his own, and the Supermoderator any last increase, and the system recalculates 90 days since the last correct increase in the Level of Alerts. The complaint mechanism for raising the Warning Level has not changed.

What to do now to lower the Warning Level?
Do not break the rules. Nothing else. All terms are controlled by the automatic system, all its actions are logged and available to any Moderator for analysis.
When the system is started, those who did not violate the rules for 90 days will experience a 20% reduction in the Warning Level. For other offenders, the deadlines will be calculated by the system individually.
Why 90 days, not 30, as before?
To reduce the number of violations. If you do not break the rules, you will not notice the difference.
And if I ask the Moderator or the Super Moderator to lower the Warning Level to me earlier?
If the increase was made correctly, then your request will be ignored. Moderators and Super Moderators are no longer engaged in regular descent, only in case of erroneous actions.

If I select the top lines of someone else's message on the android phone for quoting, then the “search-copy” plate that appears overlaps the “quote” button.
And press the "quote" button is impossible.

(There is a dreary curve that works after many attempts:
While we move the screen - the plate disappears, and then you can quickly press the "quote".)

Who comes out of this situation and how to report the jamb to the creators of the site?

This was exactly the question about the functionality of the forum.
The problem of many, and is caused precisely by the fact that the forum button is made so that it falls into the zone of a standard plate.

If you didn’t have an answer to my question, you didn’t need to work and sculpt a useless screen.
Just pass by.
