    Default Something must be done about this.

    So I made a post on my Instagram encouraging players to report scam worlds and casinos. Not long after like 5 messages rolled in my DMs saying "I got banned after reporting a casino". And since they WERE in the world, they count as the players of the casino. 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?

    it takes only 1 sec to leave the world. maybe someone already contacted the mod and as the guy was typing the msg the mod already arrived at the world and then banned

    Then don't report worlds, problem solved

    Plus why even message the moderators to come to the world, /reporting is a much better option that allows the player to leave the world in time.

    Don’t msg mods , /report and leave the world immediately and they will see it later or just don’t report and play safe.

    Thanks for the initiative and for asking other players to report these worlds. We appreciate it.


    The thing is that, the ban we apply to a casino world when we stumble upon one gives a player or spectator a grace period. This grace period prevents innocent players from getting banned. I can't, of course, disclose the exact numbers, but I can assure you guys that it's more than enough to leave a world after reporting.


    Players don't need to see the world gets banned, that's risky! As we said, even though there are a lot of us active in the game, we don't see everyone's message, we can't go to the reported world as soon as it was reported. Even so, getting out of the world after the report should be the main priority.


    After this grace period, the system acknowledges the account as casino player or spectator. We cannot show ourselves in the world before banning to warn, it'll give the actual casino players the chance to flee. In fact, we already lengthened the amount of time a player can stay in the casino world before they get banned, the time span was shorter before!


    We strongly advise getting out of the world as soon as it's reported. DO NOT STAY even for a couple of seconds more. I also mentioned and warned about this in my last CASINO HUNT video.


    Hope that explains everything about our grace period and a bit of how our system works.

    I think that the moderator should wait like 1 minute before banning the world ! Why? because he should check all growtopians that is not playing and not spamming about they want to play, then the mod ban those growtopians out of the world and ban all the others : owner, admins, players...

    Have a great day!

    It is not that easy. You think it is but once you are in there and actually banning casino worlds it is a big time waster to actually individually check each player in the worlds.

    Just know the rules and how our system works, it's that easy. If you come and report to us just get out of that world quickly. In fact, the grace period we are giving each player inside the world is MORE THAN A MINUTE.

    Not a problem tbh because we also have our own list of casino worlds to ban each day. You can also do /report just like what CaTaTa80 suggested.

    She just explained in the post you quoted that it is safe to report worlds. You won't get banned as the world gets nuked as long as you don't stay in the world for too long. Do report worlds.

    The "safe" time in the casino world should be/ is around 30s (hopefully more for slower pace people). That's enough time to go through all the portals (if there are any), identify that it is a casino and create a /report.

    NekoRei just said that it’s over 1 minute of “safe” time.

    The grace period is actually MORE THAN a minute so that is enough time to check out the world, report and then leave. Lingering in the world for more than 3 minutes is too much already.

    When you report it says LEAVE THE WORLD.
    it's common knowledge that you don't stay after reporting.
