Filter Out Blank Reports

Postby iScabs » Wed Feb 06, 2019 2:06 pm

This isn't a big issue, but occasionally when someone is reported the reason is blank. Obviously in the case of inappropriate usernames this isn't needed, but other reports means the juror has to read through the entire game to find where the gamethrow happened

Suggestion: Filter out reports of gamethrowing and harassment that are blank. But, if this were to be implemented, put in the report screen: "Please fill out the description box. Reports without descriptions may be dismissed without review." just so people actually put in the description.

This streamlines the Trial System so jurors can get through more reports and also makes sure the exact point of the rulebreak is clear. I often have to clarify with a dupe saying "Check Day #" or "Read will" because the person DID break a rule, but it's hidden in there and I literally used ctrl+f to find it

that could be a QoL (Quality of life) change, yet requires for the reporting part dev tiem that is currently not available I believe.

That is true, it would require more coding. At the very least though it would be nice if the description box was a little more emphasized

Like even just a little message on the report screen would go a long way (and would also dissuade false reporters as they wouldn't have a valid reason to report someone)

That might not lead to a better description, but instead to a "." as details or similar, since they have to type in something there. Or something completely different from the actual report, which also happened already in some reports.YOur proposed change does lead to a higher usage of the details box, but the quality of its content is not granted.

Also keep in mind that it's generally a good idea to read through the report anyway, in case there are other people breaking any rules.

I'd say if this were to be implemented, that there should be an option to skip blank reports, similar to the other skip options (like skipping Turkish/Spanish reports, skipping gamethrowing reports, etc), since some people, including myself, would want to be able to see those reports since there could be a potential rule break in them.
