    It is not that obvious how to do it. If you click on that little triangle it will allow you to report a post to the moderators.

    This triangle should be a ways below your avatar.

    Uses for the button.

    If you see a post or thread in the wrong section.
    If you see something that is not appropriate.
    If you see anything else that seems to be not right.

    Use some judgement when using the button but if you think it is something someone should look at by all means hit the button.

    You may want to update the text on the report post page: it currently contradicts what you say to use it for.

    Ah, that is the stock message that came with this. For now if you think it is something the moderators should see hit the button. I will get that updated a bit later.

    The great thing about hitting the "report to moderator" button is that any moderator can see the report and act on it, cutting down on Jon's workload a bit. So instead of emailing/PMing him about everything, please use the report function!

    This. We moderators are here to help Jon run the forum, but we can't help if we don't know what's wrong. PM us or use the notify moderator button... and we'll make things right!

    The "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page is much more prominent than the "report to moderator" button, does this also notify all of the moderators or only Jon?

    The contact us comes to me. The way vB is built there is only one forum email address. When we move I am going to see if I can set it up for multiple email addresses, it will have to be a custom job but I am sure it can be done.

    Jon, it's easy enough to setup a free email (like Gmail) to forward to all of us.
    I would probably recommend that instead.
