    I was wondering what the purpose of the Report Abuse option is. Is it for reporting stories that clearly fall hundreds of meters shorts of the standard?

    These are probably the most extreme examples:

    The Ministry of Magic has become a very powerful organization since the year 2004 when the youngest Minister of Magic in recorded history was elected. However the world is a dangerous place and few appreciate that better than the Minister himself.

    ..Actually, can we make it so a posted chapter has to be atleast 2,000 words long unless it's classified as a oneshot?

    That sounds good. People might just take to posting lengthier crap though.

    These stories have been noted already, but 1.1 brings the tools to properly shut them down. 1.1 will happen eventually.

    Eh, I'm writing here because it somewhat has to do with quality control.
    Is it normal that there is slash om PC because someone with the name DBZVergeta is posting hp/dm and rl/ss...
    I'm not a member of PatronusCharm so I can't use the report button and I didn't really know what to do about it.
    So now you know.

    Slash is allowed on PC (Hell, it's allowed here, but it had better be damned good) which is why there's a slash filter in the user options.

    And Raven has said it will work in 1.0.2, too ;) But yeah, that DBZ-guy marked it as Slash (there's an option for that when you post the story), so you'll not see it in the new PC-version, when you choose "Display no Slash" in your options.
