Is there any way of viewing the reports on a post in the REWS? I have a feeling I made a report on one of the posts in the Birthday thing, but I'm not entirely sure, and I'd like to know whether to put it there or not (so as to avoid double-reporting)?
Why would anyone call anything 'phenolphthalein'?

One cheap way is to just click to add to a story; that will tell you not to add if any reports are currently on it.
A report has been made, and since you are the only one who reports stuff besides Gobbs and I, I am gonna assume that it was you.
I thought perhaps the report emoticon changed if a report was made. No, there is no running list of the reports you have; they are not kept in your account. They are kept on the story. If there were some handy-dandy restriction such as only voting on stories you are also an author to, then it would be possible to do a simple search for all reports your own.
However, there isn't. Since a list of reports are not kept in accounts (a programming flaw known as duplication of data) the only way to create a list would be to search every story and every report, which is a really stupid thing to do, 'specially considering how (un)useful such a feature would even be.
Dunno why you had a problem with it, but yeah, your thing went through.

Yeah. It went through. I'm not entirely sure where you're coming from, though. In post one, Kyle was just arriving at the coliseum. The end line- "The two went towards the entrance, and towards their first battle of the tournament." Erik, was among those who had arrived, but as you'll notice, he's arriving in the waiting room. Battle still hasn't started yet. Time-wise, Gavin's right on track. Looking back though, I should have said sunup, not sundown. Wording slip-up on my part. Which I shall change.

Um, yeah, way to discuss the story in, y'know, the story discussion.

But if I mention it here, no one else will even know I screwed up. I mean, no one reads the forums, right?

Yeah, I know that too. Blade just made it seem like the beginning of the tournament was minutes away, at max an hour, rather than many hours, which seemed to fit Draggy's description as well. But I'm prolly reading too much into it, thus misusing the reports system when a comment would have been better. My bad, and I apologise. I'll not do it again (though you won't stop me using the reporting system. * laughs evilly *)
That also keeps this post (somewhat) on-topic. Any more discussion... It'd probably be smarter (and avoid much LandSmite-inflicted pain) to do it in the story discussion.

This may be a little bit off beat, but know I wish more people would report. Like Ems said, only three folk make use of it.
I mean, if something is wrong or is just plain stupid, I wanna be told about it. Lie in AtP when I had Vince with magically appearing ammo. Uh-oh! I don't want history to show that I screwed up. I'd rather be shown the error of my ways to make amends while the iron is hot and eggs in one basket, some other non-related metaphor. What was I saying?
