    Default "See Reports" of players option

    Hello Everyone,


    I was thinking of something to spread scammer awareness, and that this idea could prevent scams from happening. My idea is that you should be able to wrench a players name, and an option could be to "check for reports" and this option lets you view the reports that the person has had in the past to determine if the person is a scammer or has done something illegal. This would allow players to get a heads up if they meet a person that could try and scam them. I know this could be a dumb idea, but I just want to share it with you guys!


    Sincerely,

    BillyBobsGt

    Reports are private. What if you got a bunch of your friends to report the same person for no reason?

    Exactly, what if a person was a totally innocent player, and got mass reported for no reason whatsoever? This is 1 way a person could earn a HORRIBLE reputation, just by simply playing the game!

    Well, I would assume false reports would be dealt with by a moderator reading the report.


    Another thing could be that the report on the player would go away after a certain amount of time, and the person that sends false reports should be punished for lying, because that is one of the rules in /rules.

    "Players that are harmful to the community may be banned. This includes accounts that use lies, fake games, or trickery to mistreat other players."

    Reports are supposed to be confidential, are you saying there's no room for change just because his account is filled with reports that we're not even sure if it happened or not? I don't want to see a feature that would destroy a whole Growtopian's playtime (especially if that Growtopian is innocent) just because someone false reported that person.

    Maybe instead of reports by players, it would be actual confirmed things that the player has done. For example, 12-13-19 Player was caught hosting a casino - confirmed by a moderator

    OR

    6-23-20 Player was caught bullying another player profusely - confirmed by a moderator


    And if the player is CLEARLY not changing, then keep those there!

    This would create a whole bunch of privacy and security issues. As of now, the report logs of worlds and players can only be veiwed by an in game moderator, staff or developer. Opening player logs to the public would just be kinda weird. Besides, some reports that players file against other players could very well be false and untrustworthy.

    Basically, literally anyone can report anyone on being a scammer, hacker, etc. But we will never know for sure if it's true or not, we can't just take another player's word for it!.
