Why are reports closed with no action when action is needed?

How are you sure no action has been done? As far as i know most of the staff pm the person about their post and tell them not to do it again. Also funny that this is coming from you.

I get a notification saying it's closed, then I check the "Who is online" page to see what they do and they just go off reading some forum. It's happened a few times now.

Action is taken at the staff's discretion. It's not your job to worry about what we do in response to reports.

I thought if a rule was broken that's what you guys are supposed to be around for. You guys keep badgering on about using the report button and when it's used nothing happens? What's the sense in that?

We encourage using the report button so that people don't backseat moderate and make useless posts.

Ok, Joey, gonna be honest: your post looks so robotic.

Now past the remark, I remember when you guys would edit into a reported post with the edit message being "the reported post has been dealt with." I think this would show that you guys are at least taking action on posts instead of us leaving to guess whether or not a post that has blatantly broken the rules has been dealt with. Many of us WANT to know if there is action taken so we know that the moderators are doing their job efficiently.
Closing note: When we ask/want to know if a specific post has been dealt with, we are not trying to butt into business we don't belong in; we want to be assured our staff team is doing their job.

In fairness, whenever something gets reported nowadays, the post either gets locked or disappears entirely. So it's not like they aren't
doing their job.

In this situation the post I reported was completely off topic and the report was immediately closed with no action taken. The job wasn't done.

I reported it, it immediately got closed, I went right to the "Who is online" tab and no PMs were being sent/posts in the thread/anything done about it. ZM eventually went in though independent of the report and settled it but Mivixion did nothing.

Staff members have no obligation to immediately send a PM after closing a report.

It wasn't. I just gave a simple answer because that's what it is; using the report button internalizes potential backseat moderating/useless posting. The post I made before that was more robotic.

To be fair, AeroMatter, the report must've already been closed by the time I saw that post because I handled it without seeing a report.

I think that's a bug in the forum software, unfortunately.
