    In the past I have ranted about the "report a player" section a few times. Now I'm back with an actual suggestion about what to do instead.
    I made a website for player reports. This is meant as an example what a player report website could look like.

    My idea for the authorization is that the forum generates a link that contains the username and a signature (hash(username + privatekey)). For now you can just enter your name at the main page.

    Using a form like this has multiple advantages over the current forum system:
    • You cannot submit a report without evidence
    • It checks if the player exists
    • It checks if the video is available
    • For moderators it groups reports for the same player
    • Makes it possible to ban a player automatically when the mod accepts a report
    For now, only youtube links for videos and imgur links for screenshots are accepted.

    You can take a look at my implementation here: http://rasmusantons.de:5000/
    Feel free to create test reports, but don't expect the players to actually get banned.


    I also made a login for mods, the credentials are totally not admin and password ;).

    Mods can click a button to get a report (and all other reports for the same user). A cool thing about this is, that two mods will not get the same report, as the mod blocks the report now (until he leaves the report site).
    They can then either accept or deny it. The idea is that the accept button automatically punishes the player accordingly, that part obviously doesn't work yet. There is also a "Manual" button that will accept the report but not punish the palyer. The mod also can (but shouldn't) choose to ignore the report so someone else will have to deal with it.

    @johncoles @Mac @Tacosbefriends
    I hope you don't mind me copying the style from your page, this is meant as a suggestion and I'll take it down if you want. Also I'll give you the source code if you want, although it is quite messy because I decided use this as an opportunity to learn nodejs and I didn't understand promises yet.

    They really do need a separate report website it would make things so much easier. I hope this is already in the works :p

    Whatever happens, I hope that the hackers are banned.

    This is a pretty good idea. Now people will actually have proof and not put it in the wrong section.

    That website seems like a really good idea. And you seem to have done quite well with the test run.

    We need hackers to be banned. I am all for this idea as long as it can speed up the process!

    This has been suggested before. By you but also by some other people (including me ^.^ ).
    I fully support this. It is clean, will work better and looks more professional. Good job on that website btw! :)

    This seems like a joke but is actually the only problem with this website.
    People will just spam fake reports with "video evidence".
    I suggest adding a cool down to report times.

    Yes, it should probably have some restriction on reports per hour/day and also have the option to ban users that abuse it.

    This is rather complicated don't you think?

    Ban users that abuse it is a little over the top.
    But in terms of the cool down thing, I ran into a problem: If somebody has multiple reports what will they do?

    Maybe have a limit of like 20 reports per hour just so people cannot use bots to make absurd numbers of fake reports. I don't think banning users from the report thing is over the top, maybe not for one or two joke reports, but for people who keep spamming fake reports over a longer time.

    I see what you mean.
    Still, its a fine line between "a few joke reports", and that.

    Good idea. Also, mods should have a "Hacker ban time" where all of the staff for bout an hour, ban hackers from reports
