    Question [POLL] Reporting spam worlds

    Hey hey!

    Just came up with an idea!
    How about I come up with a website where anyone can report any world with spammers in it. A spam staff team (made of forumers willing to help) would confirm that the report is indeed authentic, and if approved, will appear on a list where Ubistaff can browse through.
    What would appear in the list:
    World Name, Amount of reports, Last report date, Spammers status (normal, moderate, critical).

    What do you think?

    Do you actually have a staff member who will go and ban the spammers? I doubt they would do such trivial work.

    Still a concept, but we might get support from the Ubistaff

    Seems like this system would be easily abused.

    A group of people could go up to just anyone and report them, even if they are legitimately trying to sell stuff. Spammers do also eventually leave the world too, so there's no telling how long it would take for a moderator to check the situation out, the whole situation could be over by the time they do.

    Yep, also there's already a /report and the ability to report someone on the game. I don't think there's any difference.

    You're right. Not necessary and no point to make a new project. I'm gonna say no to this.

    Why must everything be on a different website? They could just report it on forums by messaging a mod. Though it will be good if Devs allow a (mega)thread for reporting spammer filled world

    Yes, it might be a good idea.

    But I think there are bad consequences.

    That's why there's a "last reported" date

    Do you really think they check reported worlds?

    It would be easier on a website (because there would be more info, and a world reported mutiple times would stack up instead of displaying as separate posts)
