Should the report system be closed27
As per discussion we were having in Discord earlier this morning, some people are advocating for the report system changing due to recent circumstances. Some of us are proposing the idea of the report system being a closed system while reports are open or in process. Here is how it would work:
You can only report someone if you were in a game with them, or if they interacted with you on the lobby wall/forum/etc. No trolling somebody's profile to get them for minor rule breaking as a form of being vengeful or looking to report farm.
Open/in progress reports: Are viewable by moderators, the person that is being reported, and the person that reported them
Closed reports: Are viewable by everyone so there can be moderator accountability, everyone can review outcomes, etc.
CIVIL DISCUSSION ONLY. NO SAYING THIS IS STUPID WITHOUT CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK. IT IS A DISCUSSION, NOT "THIS IS THE WAY IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND IT IS NOT CHANGING GET A LIFE LOSER."
the player names can be changed to like mafia 1, mafia2, mafia 3, cop, villager 1, etc. then when the person is reported it will say something like the villager 3 reported villager 2 for isp.
not sure how to stop mods from just looking on alts, but they could probably code this that so selected players cant see the player names in games for like a week and then the admins would have to use this for all the mods and their alts. maybe you can just make this the default view for everyone viewing the games, except for the role mods and admins for a set time or until all reports are processed?
coding for this:
1. option to select frivolous report, duplicate, or actual report.
2. friv is just closed. duplicates are closed with a link.
3. real reports would then require a sentence of say 10 words to be able to physically close it.
Also handling reports is a lot of work, the mods can't do everything...
They just lack in numbers <3
