We've been getting a lot of accidentally reported threads lately, that were meant to be replies. Please be aware of what you're doing, and look for the heading that says Report Post, Give Karma, Reply to Thread, etc. Otherwise you will lose the reply you typed!

Also remember that Save a Quotation is for the random quotation on the main page, not to quote the post in your reply. See here for more info: BB Tricks & Tips #1 Quotes, Multiquote & Quotations

On my phone the “like” is right below the report button and I always worry that my fat fingers will click report instead of like. :(

My thumbs hit the wrong one all the time too, but the “report” button has to be hit twice before it goes through. So lately I’ve been double checking before I hit the final send.

Oh ok that has never happened to me! So that's good to know :)
The other thing, when you hit the "report" button it asks you why you are reporting the post and you are prompted to type a response in a box. When you hit the "Like" it just processes the click.

Yup. But a lot of people get it mixed up with Karma comments.
