    Use the Report Abuse button on the left panel of each post to alert one of us. This is not just for abuse but a way for users to attract staff attention to something.

    Perhaps it would be worth making that fact better known? If the button says report abuse then I would tend not to use it for anything else.

    I second that! It should be something like "help", "moderator", or even "ask a moderator". People need to know about stuff like that, to get their questions answered better and quicker.

    The problem with that is; people will try to use/abuse it for asking support question instead forum board.

    In that case you need to decide whether you want it to be a way for people to contact mods in any way (in which case it needs to be made known) or you want to avoid misuse of it (in which case you should tell people it is only for "reporting abuse"). Trying to achieve both just leaves people confused and you get the worst of both worlds.

    Just my 2 cents.
