They shouldn't even be there in the first place.
    @Neko, I think its good that there is a system in place to allow players time to leave. Perhaps it will be good to ensure that those players who step into a casino world just prior to the ban taking place will be given that grace period before he/she is subject to the ban.

    Also, if you can make this fact more known, I think people will take note and leave. i.e. have a simple world that tells people what you do when u see a casino world (and perhaps, make a vid or sb about it) or let the message appear for 1 week in a month when the events are absent.

    I already mentioned about this in my previous Casino Hunt video but sure I can probably add more announcements about this.

    Also, if they are able to get out of the casino world within the grace period they will surely not get banned. Unfortunately, we cannot disclose how long is the time limit, but I assure you that it is LONG ENOUGH for them to take a look, report and get out since it is MORE THAN a minute. The thing is they shouldn't even be loitering inside the casino for a long time in the first place.

    Yes, true. If they already report that casino world and staying there more than the grace period given by the mods, then that person who report will get ban. That his/her problem now. Because the mods already gave them a time which is "grace period" to get out the casino world immediately.

    It is a responsibility to all Growtopians, you should do your work cause mods do theirs too.

    Maybe add a pop-up screen after reporting. The pop-up screen should only have the “Exit” button so players are forced to leave after reporting. It’s their fault if they get banned for coming back to watch.

    Hello guys,

    Colmar:
    I can guarantee you that's not how it works, which means you are blatantly lying regarding being there for 1 second or 0.5 seconds. You do get world banned, but you won't get account banned if you joined the world almost at the same time the moderator nuked it.

    For everyone:
    Just use /report and leave as soon as you type the reason.

    Here are a couple of reasons you can use while using /report:
    "CSN"
    "CSN Link"
    "Drop Game"
    "Fake Prize Parkour"
    "Scamming"
    "Dirt Game"
    "Pepper Game"
    "Gambling"
    "Trust Test"
    "Fake Giveaway - Donations"

    And so on, you get the idea.

    Just be brief about the reason and leave the world as soon as you are done reporting.

    Cheers,

    This is one of those things where every case has to be treated differently, which is why with the current solution of just banning every player in the world whether they’re a participant, spectator or innocent bystander, is so controversial.

    Obviously there are a lot of different viewpoints on this subject matter, but looking into every single case of a player trying to get their ban appealed would be a massive hassle. That’s why moderators encourage us to leave a casino world, or any other illegal world, immediately after reporting to avoid getting banned in the process. If you leave the second after you report a world, you shouldn’t have any issues. Trust me, moderators aren’t that good at their job. I mean, they are amazing still, but they can’t be everywhere in the blink of an eye.

    Hope this helps!

    If you're in the world for about ten seconds, it is possible you could be banned. If you're quick and can type /report within a second or two, do it. Then leave. If you can't type quickly, just leave. Don't message moderators, it will probably get lost in a swarm of messages anyhow. Reporting and leaving is the best thing you can do.

    I don't know about you, but it takes me about half a second to see that a world is a casino. You definitely have enough time to leave the world without being punished. If you stay longer than the ten seconds, you probably deserve the ban.

    Gt systhem like that xd if someone never scamms he loose alot if a scammer scam he win alot poor people who got scammed become scammes and so on. A 7 days ban for an innocent who just try to help mods or try becoming one doing this (everyones dream) but you know, inocent people does loose at the end. Ubi should really do both sides of a coin 1. More mods 2. (Baning systhem improvements) the second should be done.
