Windows Live team listens to my feedback on Report Abuse!

Well, maybe it is not specifically my feedback, maybe others as well, but they at least updated part of their policy that I’ve been pushing for.

I noticed as I was reporting this person, you do not have to link to the person’s Windows Live Space URL; you can now link to the person’s Windows Live Profile URL. Which of course makes more sense nowadays.

Using the person’s Windows Live Profile URL makes much more sense than using a person’s Windows Live Space URL, because it is quite common to find a lot of users have not signed up for a Windows Live Space, so it makes it quite irrelevant to have to report with a URL that does not exist. It just makes better sense to go with the Profile URL.

However, I still think a better and hassle-free way of containing the situation, would be for Windows Live to automatically know some of the data without the user having to provide it.

Like for instance, if a person posts a comment containing spam, then all you should have to do is click a report abuse button right next to the user’s name (or from the list of options when you click on his/her display picture) and Windows Live should know instantly who is being report, and where exactly where they are being reported from (based on the source of the report abuse click) making it a much easier process.

The smarter ‘report abuse’ button would knock out the need to enter a person’s Windows Live Profile URL and label the exact location of the abuse. All the person would need to do is just explain what the abuser did, and that’s about it. No more having to go through the process of copy and pasting URLs, the exact content of the message and then digging through a list to go through specifics. A more speedy reporting process would be a life saver.

Other sites can do this, so why can’t Windows Live? Anyway, I’m at least happy there is some progress happening, even though it is kind of slow.
