I have been wondering this too. Say, the user's flash just got blammed. He/she resubmits it -- no changes done whatsoever. Should we blow the whistle? If so, which option should we choose? If this option isn't already availible, I would like to see it implemented in the future.

Well, it would be helpful to read the posts infront of you, but I'll explain anyway.

You do not get any "whistle points" when you call a review abusive. That review has to checked by, and removed by an administrator. Alternatively, the user's account could get deleted. So basically, if you marked a review "abusive" and it gets removed, you gain a point.

I say "gain a point" figuring this is how the system works.

my theory:
For each correct flag you make, you gain X points. If you have accumulated XXX points, you will gain a level. It takes more points each time you gain a level, to gain another.

It would really help if we had some numbers next to our whistle level.
e.g:Total whistle points: 11/25

No, the flags for it are simply cleared.

I don't know. Sizzler told me he blew the whistles on Slideshow Porn entries, which usually get pass judgement. And now he's at Garbage level. I think you shouldn't clear the flags, even though it gets past judgement.

Hahaha! Wasn't it garbage day today? Hey Hycran, I believe you can also lose points for marking a review abusive that doesn't get removed.

But then again, not clearing the flags is a bad idea. Cause there could be morons just blowing the whistle for fun on like every movie they see. And would be a pain for NG staff to look at every flagged entry.

Just have to do it the old fasion way, by reporting protected illegal movies.

How do you raise your whistle level? It's easy! Whenever you see a stolen or otherwise unacceptable piece of content on the site, blow the whistle on it (this must be done while the submission is new and the option is available). If the submission is removed, your status will improve.

Similarly, if you read an abusive review and mark it as such, you will be awarded for that as well.

HOWEVER, don't think you can just blow the whistle on everything and get points when you're right. If you flag an item that is found to not break our guidelines, this will adversely affect your whistle rating.

Howdy!
Not a problem. I would've liked such an option to megablam the late ''otomite clock'' after that stunt he pulled!!! (been there, done that, had to *&^%$#@! reboot!!!) The moron thought he could suicide bomb his NG account to impress the internet's ''allah'' site and nothing bad would happen!!!
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!
{cynical}The ''allah'' site says ''If someone spams you, please report it to us'' SO I DID.
One can only hope ''otomite clock'' paid the WHOLE price for his mistake...

Cool! I great way to get me to start blowing the whistle at stolen/bad movies. I hardly ever blow the whistle, but now I'm gonna start using it.

Anyone here have an other whistle status other than "Normal"?

Really good feature! It impel the users to break the silence with stolen, malicious or unsuitable movies. Great idea!
