    Useful suggestion:

    When the user types his report and hits the report button, he is automatically kicked out of the world and can't access it for X amount of time

    It is a great idea and something that we can look into. But I think what the OP is stating here are those who are sending us private messages. We do see those reports sent to us privately and we warp to those worlds. If the player who personally reported the world to us is still there and has been inside the world exceeding the given grace period then he will get banned. I do unban them most of the time but of course I am not the only one banning these casino worlds.

    So you're telling us that people who said they reported immediately and left but still got punished are lying? EPIC

    So you're saying that the game's system is also lying then? It is set by our programmers in the game. In fact I experimented on that multiple times and was able to prove that those who reported worlds to me who stayed in the world in less than our grace period were not banned. Also do you even know the grace period we set in the game? We're not supposed to disclose that time limit so I bet you have no idea.

    I would have to add that people who are reporting might have decided to report the world after the grace period. Some people like spectating the casino players before reporting. Or even reporting and staying there.

    But that's the thing. Our system will not know whether they are just spectating or playing and we will not be able to check that as well. So we advice not to do those. If they want to report just report, if they don't wanna get banned then not spectate at all otherwise they will be mistaken as a player playing in the casino. Just get out. They shouldn't even be there in the first place.

    I wasn't trying to be opposed to what you said, but rather pointing things out for the guy you replied to

    The counter begins when you hit the Enter world button, this means that even if you don't see the world in front of you and are still seeing "Entering world...", the counter is counting your presence in the world.

    Isn't it better to like have a way to prevent players from entering the casino world before banning all players in there?
    This is something good as if a random guy enters a random world that is a casino world and ends up getting banned due to not knowing it's a casino world, these people won't be arguing them to unban them.

    So is it possible to make a casino world (Found by mod) inaccessible with the casino players still in the world before banning everyone in that world

    There is a period of time they use that basically shows your not just randomly entered you've spent time there.
    Second they are not mind reader they can't prevent something when they don't know the world is casino.
    Easy to enter see it's csn /report and leave.
    People are to curious to either see it get banned or see a mod ban the world so stay and in turn get banned.
    That's you as a players responsibility not the mods and admins.

    You aren't supposed to /go to a random casino, bad idea.

    However, players are in their right mindset to /report...

    Its definitely not, I reported a casino to a moderator and got banned by the system in nearly 3 seconds, so quick that even the moderator had failed to ban me in time to save me from the ban itself.

I know, they could have just "REPORTED AND LEFT", but still, there's a chance of someone innocent getting banned on the white door or something like that.
    When these people email support, the support replies with and automated reply saying they played casino and should wait for the ban to end. I feel like it's a little unfair to not check this person's logs if they provide time or something. Like, this one guy literally just went to the casino world, then did "/message Zruul This world is a casino" and then got banned for 7 days. It would be pretty easy for the support to see whether he was there to play or there to report, no? And this is just one example. As I said, I already got 5 people in my DMs who said the same story and I feel like it's kind of on me since I made the post in which I did the EXACT same thing and nothing happened to me.

    Any thoughts?
    I even heard someone going in the top recommended worlds that you can see at the main screen with bunch of worlds and got banned instantly cuz it was a csn world drop world or something haha seems nothing can be done about it since reviewing every single ban will be hard
