Q: Someone is harassing me, what can I do about it?
You can try blocking them
first. You can also set your messaging options to "Accept Only From Friends" on the edit profile page
. This will prevent blocked users from creating another account to PM you after you've blocked them.
Above all, ignore these users. Don't give them any attention whatsoever as that often seems to be what they crave most.
If they still find a way to harass you, send an email with their username and any evidence of harassment you can provide to our support email address

Q: How do I report a submission / user?
To report a submission, click the Flag icon in the submission page title bar. You can also discuss questionable games and movies in the Elite Guard Barracks
or questionable audio in the Audio Portal Cleanup thread.
If you would like to report a user for a private message they have sent you, there is a flag option in the PM. Otherwise you can contact us at our support email address
Q: How do I level up/gain BP/increase whistle status?
Leveling up can be done by voting on submissions and gathering EXP. You can gain a maximum of 10 EXP per day by voting on five submissions each day. There's an unofficial list of current levels and their requirements here
Blam and Protection points are awarded for each submission you judge correctly. If you vote 0-1 on a submission under judgement that's blammed, or 2-5 on one that's protected, you'll get a point.
There's no limit to the amount of B/P you can amount each day. More info here
To increase whistle status you'll need to correctly flag abusive reviews and content that should be removed. This is done by clicking the flag icon (the system was originally whistle-themed but we changed the buttons to flags because they are more universally understood).

Q: How do I change a submission's title?
Either create a new project with the correct title, or send the URL of the project you want changed to support
Q: Why doesn't search return what I'm looking for?
It's possible your content filters are hiding something. Make sure you've enabled every content level you are willing to browse (adult is disabled by default).
Q: Do you know how to find a particular old submission?
Post as much info as you can about it to the help forum
. Someone there can usually find just about anything.
