  • Suggestion: New reporting system

    We need the ability to report worlds and players without being with them (Reporting from a distance)
    > May apply for the previously visited worlds and the players who are in plus the ones who already left.



    Wrenching to report a certain player is not that easy when it comes to crowded places. (Especially the unreachable area wherein you cannot click their wrench) They can easily escape just by leaving the world.

    Note: They can also ban you from their own world to prevent you from reporting them. Some may also change address.

    Reporting a certain world is also impossible when the owner sets or limits the lock to level 124.

    We need a new way of reporting these such events wherein we can just simply type the player's name or the world name.

    There's a command to report a world which is "/report" (limitation: it can only be reported if you're in the world)

    So why not add /report [insert name] for players?


    Example: /report playername123
    *then the box pops out and lets you put the short narrative about the incident*

    I think this would cause people to just report random people they hate. With the current reporting system people can report the people they see doing what so ever illegal activity. I think it is fine as it is.

      I get your point BUT how about the unreported cases? Would you let them get away?

      ++ What if there's only 2 people in the world? (Just you and the culprit in a jammed world)

      This is why mods exist, it's their duty to investigate on reports, they don't just simply ban a player based on the numbers of reports.

      Players who falsely accuse must also get a sanction/punishment.
      Every player is responsible for their own actions.

Reporting a certain world is also impossible when the owner sets or limits the lock to level 125. We need a new way of reporting these such events wherein we can just simply type the player's name or the world name.
        I absolutely disagree and I'm happy with the current report system and I don't think anything else needs to be changed other than the moderators need to react to those reports fast.

          They wouldn't be able to act fast if you can't report immediately. Warping to a certain location will take time especially when you got disconnected.

          Also some reports are left unheard

            No reports are left unheard. Moderators check every single one of them and if they are not important issues or if it's fake then they won't react to it.

            Moderators have a reporting list where there are tons of reports and they will be going through them 1 by 1. You just need to be patient if you need help, You can also report with contacting the Support.

              1) You can't report a player if you can't wrench his/her name.

              2) How will you take a screenshot of a certain world if it's set to level 120+? (For aftermath screenshots)

              3) You'll need some evidence before contacting the support team.

                You can always ask someone with lvl 125 to do you a favor to screenshot the world

                  Feasible but hard to do. Some lvl 125 players are not kind enough to do that for you, especially when you're not their friend.

                  Sidenote: it will require you to find someone, and will definitely take time. If something happens, it must be reported as soon as possible

                    Genuine question, What kind of people would you be trying to report? I mean is it aimed towards players that are scamming or being toxic because most players wouldn't go to such an extent to avoid you and if it was that bad you could always just contact support

                      Here's the 4th and the 5th one

                      4th: Be civil. Bullying, racism, excessive profanity, sexual content, and abusive behavior are not allowed.

                      5th: Players that harmful the community may be banned. This includes accounts that use lies, fake games, or trickery to mistreat other players.

                      Players who qualify above the said rules must be punished right?

                        Of course, I do agree with you but the only issue is the report system is already simple, I'd say it takes about 5 seconds to report someone, same with worlds. Adding this could cause players to make reports for no reason and if it's constant bullying /ignore does the trick. They definitely should be punished but this could cause players to abuse the system and make alts to report them or ask friends.

                          Wait, let me copy paste.

                          (These are the scenarios that I'm trying to point out)

                          1) You can't report a player if you can't wrench his/her name. (Banned or Crowded world scenario)

                          2) How will you take a screenshot of a certain world if it's set to level 120+? (For aftermath screenshots) (+ asking or looking for a lvl 120+ player to help you won't be that easy)

                          3) You'll need some evidence before contacting the support team.

                            -Do not /bc or /sb from an inappropriate world.

                            Many players does this ^^^

                            + How can you wrench a player's name if he/she is in the unreachable spot in the world? Some worlds are too crowded when someone do sb

                            ++ Maybe an auto ban or first offense warning for players who bc/sb/cb with the word "report" will do

                              I understand that but before implementing an idea like this, you need to think about the pros and cons and whether it's really needed plus the report system is made to be convenient so if you find a casino or drop game you can easily do /report. Moderators and guardians have the role of moderation and players have the responsibility to follow the rules. If Sbs are upsetting you then you could even do /radio. I just think there are many ways to block out players that are toxic without focusing on ways to report them.
