Most "problem reports" seem to be on the level of "The Executor is 19km long when it should be 8km!" — and frankly, this is just the wrong way to handle dispute resolution.

I think that if we're going to keep Special:ProblemReports at all, it should be restricted to technical issues, while content issues should be discussed on talk pages as they always have been. Also, at the very least, users should be able to edit their own reports, which is currently impossible after the report has been filed. - Sikon 13:35, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Yes, it's not good when they take the place of a talk page. Perhaps we could add some wording to the reporting page? -- Ozzel 05:04, 20 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Perhaps we could lose ProblemReports. Havac 06:06, 20 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Geez when was this introduced? -- Riffsyphon1024 05:19, 23 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Agreed. Problem Reports is quite, pardon the pun, problematic in its current form. jSarek 05:10, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
  • I don't think Problem Reports is cutting down on talk page questions; most of them seem to be generated by anons who wouldn't otherwise edit. And in my experience, most of the problems listed are legitimate complaints. -LtNOWIS 07:06, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
    • I'm with NOWIS here. I mean, I just now saw the special page, and the 10 that're up there are actual, legitimate concerns (such as edits to a blocked page). Can't we just ignore the stupidity, use common sense, and fix the ones that are actually problems? Besides, on the entries I've seen, most of them would just make Talk Page clutter anyway.
