Flagging Incorrect Sightings

I have now introduced a long-overdue feature which should help reduce my workload administering the website - the ability for people* to flag incorrect sightings.

When viewing the sightings of an individual record, for example https://ontrackplant.com/otp/79235 , you will notice a big red "flag" button on the right of each sighting. Clicking this shows a little popup where you can fill in details about why you're flagging it.

Some good reasons to flag:

Vehicle was scrapped before the sighting date. **

Vehicle was exported so the UK sighting is incorrect.

Vehicle was stored elsewhere. **

Vehicle not delivered/built yet.

Location is obviously wrong.

Sighting date is in the future. **

If a number is wrong, mention the possible correct number.

**Automatic flagger - we do have a behind the scenes system which flags obviously incorrect sightings, including those submitted by budding Marty McFlys & Nostradami with future dates; and a few stored machines seen away from their storage locations (hello 79234/79235).

Things to note:

The sighting will remain on the website, along with a red message beside it.

You can not edit/delete someone else's sighting.

It is up to the initial member to deal with/delete their flagged sighting.

You can see if any of your sightings have been flagged by visiting the your sightings page.

Remember:

Please be polite when flagging other sightings. If you're rude or abusive then your flagging rights will be revoked.

No need to leave your name/email address in the note!

Hope you find this feature useful. If there are any problems or questions then post a reply here.

*note: this feature is only available to limited group of people with full roll-out expected soon.
