SeeClickFix is intended to be a way for citizens to publicly
document concerns in their community as a way to facilitate
dialogue and hold the local government accountable. As such, there
is no way to report an issue privately through SeeClickFix. You can
change your display name if you do not want others to know that you
are the one reporting the issue or making comments. To do this,
login to seeclickfix.com, scroll over your name, and select
preferences. Your display name can be changed there.
Content that does not comply with SeeClickFix's terms of service
will be removed from the site. This includes content that is
libelous or abusive in nature. To report content that does not
comply with the terms of service, hit 'report abuse' on the issue
page. This will bring the content to my attention, as the Community
Manager, and I will look into the matter.

of SeeClickFix in any area will depend upon how it is used by the
community there. We're here to support our users, but ultimately it
is up to engaged citizens to improve their neighborhoods.
