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.
    What if you want to report a specific player who's not in the same world as you are? You can't just do "/report." The world owner might get into trouble even if it's not his/her fault.

      Hard to distinguish from those who reported someone but didn't even witness firsthand. Pretty abusable, as people asks friends to report remotely, or controversial public figures that go "REpORT faAKEguyPOOR he NUB skEM iDiwORd and pIEz Uf WORd", making it more cancerous for support/mods to deal and investigate.
      This is Sumo. He's just a random level 74 Growtopian.

      That's it. What else d'you wanna know?

        Players does abuse the reporting system, even with or without this. (I'm talking about my suggestion)

        I'm just suggesting a separate report system for worlds and players.

        Instead of doing /report, why not /reportworld or /reportplayer?

        Yes, there's alot of pros and cons but if we all work together, then the community will be better.

          This Would Be Helpful If A Scammer Bans You From Their World So You Cannot Report Them.

              You could've reported beforehand and then informed players not to drop after because it seems only both you and the guy who said 'scam' were banned

                It's more important the warn the kids first before reporting. The items that they will lose will not be returned.

                + These two scenarios happened within less than a minute. I decided to warn them first, and then took a screenshot for evidence.

                  I remember a feature that would warn you about dropping valuable items, was it removed? Because I no longer see it. Anyway, I find it's always better to report first as it allows mods to investigate and prevent further scams, and usually the owner doesn't feel obligated to ban you as they aren't really concerned with you. Unfortunately, not all scams can be prevented and if you focused on reporting a world/player first it wouldn't be a problem which means your system isn't really needed. Although I do agree that when you can't see the player you want to report it's frustrating but that wouldn't be the case during a drop game.

                    That's the reason why I'm suggesting this feature. Why are you so against it? Not all scams can be prevented but we can still help and prevent some right? How can we report these such events if we're already banned in the first place?

                    **Can't report the world and the player due to this circumstance

                      I'm not against it. I'm trying to challenge it because we've had the same report system in GT for a while and it hasn't really been a problem so I just wanted to understand how it'd benefit us to change. Overall, I think the ideas valid and could help people but I was pointing out that reporting a world straight away is more important than confronting a scammer, which always usually results in a ban.

                        So, I wrote up a bunch and was going over it but realized that maybe I need to approach this differently.
                        I do agree with your idea, but to an extent.
                        I don't agree with it in terms of reporting people, but I do think you should be able to report worlds without actually being in it.
                        Such as, if you found a casino world, you would then leave and report the world where you are safe and not able to get accidentally cursed.

                        When it comes to reporting people, that would be really risky and easily abused.
                        But with worlds, moderators would just look over it and make sure if it's a true report or not.
                        If there are multiple reports on the same world and there's nothing bad found in the logs or in the world, then the other reports would be dismissed.

                          We absolutely need something like this in place. We need a way that illegal activity can be tracked anywhere, in all worlds, at all times to allow the community to work together and prevent illegal activity from going unnoticed.

                          False reports are already a very valid concern, but that isn't something that is ever going to stop - we just have to figure out how we can properly handle it. Cases that have already been looked into and proven to be inaccurate could possibly get added to a constantly refreshing blacklist to prevent them from showing up in results. I believe that this would be a task Guardians could sift though and pass on cases that should be looked into further.

                          You've got my support entirely. +1

                            Trade Scam

                            Another example

                            Ancient pin ≠ Ancestral totem of wisdom

                            Pin = 8wls
                            Lens= 185-195 wls (as of 06/27/20)

                            Please double check your trades everyone

                              I do agree with this idea tho.
                              I don't see this to be anywhere less or more abuseable than current system.

                                I support this idea. World reporting from a distance especially. It lessens the risk of support BSing you and keeping you banned just because you happened to enter a CSN and it got nuked 2 seconds into you typing a report.
