READ FIRST: Guidelines for Reporting Players (Feb. 22, 2020)

Postby TurdPile » Sat Jun 15, 2019 1:41 pm

As mentioned in the past, the Report Players forum will be getting phased out with the Trial System. Due to some confusion and complications, we are implementing some of these changes now.

Please read everything here before reporting players in this forum.

What can you report?
  1. Rule infractions that occur in the lobby and not in-game. If it doesn't occur in the lobby, use in-game reporting.
  2. Hate speech. Phrases against race, sexual orientation, gender, or religion fall under hate speech. Pedophilia falls under this category as well. This will generally result in a permanent ban depending on severity.

What can't you report?
  1. Everything else. Use the reporting system in-game for other infractions.
(You may use Trial Reports as reference in your post, however you cannot use Trial Reports as your basis for the report, including lobby-infractions.)

Inappropriate usernames (as in account names, not in-game aliases) are not handled here, post those in the thread found here: Report Inappropriate Usernames Here.
You can report any account name that breaks the Terms of Use.

What information to include:

  1. The title of the report thread must include the player's username (account name). Again, this is not their in-game name. If you notice someone already has an open thread against them, you may add your details to that thread.
  2. The report details must include the player's username. Yes, again. Why? /shrug
  3. The reason for reporting the user. Even if its self-explanatory.
  4. The link to an unedited, un-cropped screenshot showing the offense. Please do not use Google Drive to submit your screenshot, because it shows your full name and email address.
  5. A screenshot of the post-game lobby. This is to make sure you were actually in the game, and to validate your report further.

If this information is not included and provided as stated above, your report will be closed without further review. No exceptions.

This forum is not a substitution for reporting players in game. Always use the in game report feature first for any rule breaks after the lobby.

Regarding In-Game Reports:
  • In-game reports create a record of all chat logs that occur during the game (including lobby).
  • It requires two players to report the same infraction to generate a report's chat log. Please make sure someone else reports as well if you are wishing to file a report.
  • Any reports without the game's logs in the system will be closed after one month without a report open that is valid. We cannot handle in-game infractions without an accompanying in-game report. We may review the account for similar infractions however and keep an eye out for future infractions if they have none.

The current judges are listed here: Trial Judge Group

If you have any questions please ask in this board.

Do not PM me about your open appeal. It will be ignored.

DISCLAIMER: I am a Moderator of the forums and the game.
I manage the clutter so the developers can do their work.
My voice and my opinions are of my own and shouldn't be taken as the
word of the developers (although I may be slightly more informed of
certain matters). Therefore, rude remarks I may occasionally make
should not impact the reputation of the developers.
Cheers.

Moderator Message: Editing TurdPile's post to clarify that this only applies to reporting players here in the Report Players forum, and not reporting in general.

Also, minor grammar mistakes fixed.

Moderator Message: Edited TurdPile's OP to mention the one-month period (as that's when reports expire) before closing, however if it gets closer to the month period and still no reports, it may be closed earlier than the month and we will keep an eye out for future infractions.

Moderator Message: Guidelines for Report Players has been updated as of December 16, 2019.

You may use Trial Reports as reference to your post should you create a thread in Report Players to report a player if you'd like and if it's appropriate to do so, however using a Trial Report as a basis for your report (i.e: Lobby infraction that cannot be duplicated on user in question in the system) is not allowed. You may report these in the Trial Discord for Judges and other staff to look at and keep an eye on the user(s) in question from there. (Link can be found at the bottom of the original post by TurdPile.)

Moderator Message: The guidelines were updated once again on February 22, 2020, albeit it was just re-adding a previous requirement for reports that was seemingly removed in error, as this requirement has been around for almost forever;
5. A screenshot of the post-game lobby.
