Should the report system be closed27

Thirty1mon 1d

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."

How is one supposed to review a game and see whether a violation actually took place if they can't see the name of the person whose report they're handling? I know some of you truly believe some verdicts are unfair, which is why the appeal function exists. When appealing only admins and head mods can handle the report and you get a 2nd proficient opinion. A VAST majority of the appeals get sustained, which shows that most of the problem is just in people's heads.
And, dr3amer, all mods leave a sufficiently large comment on why they gave the verdict they did. The only exception is frivolous reports or absurdly baseless reports, where it would simply be a waste of time.
lucid is a smart guy. he can code something like this but it will take time.

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?

this is not true. many mods never explain reports at all. like notes are never explained and some vios are not. this should be done. like if i was a mod, i would do that always so i could just remember why i gave it what i did

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.

@dr3amer well then get mods that do explain it :p

Also handling reports is a lot of work, the mods can't do everything...
They just lack in numbers <3

Lmao they don't lack in numbers they just don't want any people they don't view as..."efficient" becoming a mod.
