To prevent abuse of the profile reporting system, reporting a profile does NOT immediately result in the reported member receiving a warning or being suspended.
When a profile is reported, it enters a queue for admin review. Certain reasons, and the presence of additional reports from other members, will affect how quickly a profile is reviewed.
If you encounter a serious violation, please submit a support request in SCRUFF so that we cane review it immediately.

More about reporting profiles
The following are important points to keep in mind about reporting profiles in SCRUFF:
You can only report a profile once
To prevent abuse of the profile reporting system, a profile can only report another profile once. If you encounter additional serious violations from the same profile, please submit a support request in SCRUFF. If you are being harassed, we strongly recommend that you also block the offending member's profile along with submitting a support request.
When a profile accumulates a certain number of reports--or if it has been reviewed by SCRUFF staff and found to be in violation--it will receive a warning. When a profile is warned, the profile photo is removed and the offending member will receive an in-app alert explaining why they have received it. If you encounter a serious violation, please submit a support request in SCRUFF.
When a profile has accumulated a certain number of reports and warnings--or if it has been reviewed by SCRUFF staff and found to be in serious violation of our Guidelines or Terms of Service--it will be suspended. If a profile is suspended, the offending member will receive an error message when they attempt to launch or use SCRUFF, and the launch will be stopped. A support request can always be submitted for a suspension review.
Reporting a profile does not block it
Reporting a profile does not block it. To block a profile, refer to the Hiding & Blocking Profiles guide.
