    The Report Players forum has now been made private. You are still able to report players just like before, however, you will not be able to see threads created by anyone other than yourself.

    This not only adds a level of privacy, which was totally lacking before, it also prevents a lot of issues that were being created by everything being visible. There should be no more bickering on the report forums and players no longer need to be "afraid" to report someone because everyone would know they did it.

    The only people who can see all the threads are members of the moderating staff. This added level of privacy should help in getting accurate reports and keeping the forum a bit more civil.

    So.... now it's preferred that we -do- put the name in the title because of this change? Or....?

    Either way works. As long as we don't have to hunt through the screenshots and figure out who is breaking the rules.

    It just makes it easier for us to handle.

    Thank goodness, maybe this can calm the server down a bit.

    might get a bit hectic with multiple reports, but if it stops world war 3 then its all good i suppose :)

    Only downside Xeri can see is a flood of reports from different people on the same person.

    Fantastic Idea. I think this will stop prejudiced where it is not due.

    the reports are supposed to be serious, Its supposed to be informative not for entertainment, that sorta caused arguments in some cases

    Yea, I've put some thought into it and I would prefer if people would put the name of the person/people being reported in the title. It will make it a little easier for us in the event of multiple report threads.

    It isn't mandatory, it would just be nice :)

    Will this block people from seeing the forum in the recent forums section too?

    That's what Xeri's been doing since the change. :cat: Since there's no risk of public name&shame, and it makes it easier for the mods to weed out players have already been dealt with if there are multiple reports.

    Ik I was just typing my thoughts...

    Anyway how am I supposed to give Xeriana the credit she deserves when I can't see who she reported. But either way point taken Rwsender
