    Correction: It's not an idea. It's already in effect.
    If you look at it from a macro viewpoint, yes such low costing sites are certainly easy to get into and replace.

    On the other hand, it is just as easy to take it down. Rather than just sitting back, we are making a change by raising the effort needed to re-enter the field. It's an endless loop, but at least we have made it into a loop instead of it spiraling out of control.

    The same concept follows for your game moderators, is there really no point in banning casinos and scammers?
    There are so many of them too, and they too can find ways to circumvent their ban.

    Yup REPORTPHISHING by atkinssj, that formed the earliest basis of our operations.

    The world tells you the basics of how to report, however it's not very relevant regarding the current sites flying around, mostly hosted by freenom. Plus, surveymonkey's abuse form link is outdated there.

    So without knowing on how to takedown the other sites apart from weebly and wix listed there, or if one is just too lazy to try filing a report, they can report it to us, and we'll go through all necessary procedures

    Don't you guys have in-game ways for us to report. Maybe a world where we can mail the URL of the claimed website. I'm most of the time in mobile and would like to be involved but lazy enough to exit the app, check out the URL (if it really is phishing), then go to your site and file a form.

    Pardon me.

    AH... I didn't consider that. That's a pretty interesting view, can't believe I overlooked it.
    I'll start building the world, don't expect anything grand though~

    How do you prevent those website makers from not taking down their own sites or a friend from another site etc. I. E your team has been compromised? What would u do in that case if it hasn't happened yet that is, it's it is alr happening and ydk yet.
    Give a man a wl, and he will learn to rely on you.
    Teach a man to make wls and you'll set him up for success.

    Why would they want to take down their own sites?

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that, as colderman said above.

    The closest I can think of what you're referring to is our database and list of sites on discord. So assuming a staff member updates a site to "taken down" without it actually being taken down, it's easy to spot as the link would still have an embed attached to it. Furthermore, the link is sent to a suspended websites channel, where it's shown to everyone. It's also quite easy to do a double check as we don't get that many sites down each day. Perhaps about 10 a day?
    Now, since what we're simply doing is updating the lists, it's simple to rectify as all we need to do is update the lists back to the reported or unreported ones. Furthermore is a reported has been stuck for a long time, we update it back to the unreported list for other staff to handle.
