    So I saw this suggestion here: https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/awards-for-reporting-hackers.165123/
    My first reaction was no, absolutely not. I was not the only one to think that (as you can see in the comments of that thread)
    But after I read some comments of people,and though about it a little more, I came up with my own idea that's kinda similar but also not, I will explain:

    The idea behind the thread was that players get points or coins for reporting hackers. But, maybe, maybe not a reward in-game, but a reward that makes it easier to record hackers or something in that direction.
    For instance if you have more than a thousand successful reports and 99% of your reports are actual hackers, you could get the power to prematurely ban the hackers before posting the report on forums and Youtube, to save some time and effort.

    EDIT: Of course, when players abuse this system by first having banned 1000 hackers and then falsely banning innocent players, they will lose their power, obviously.

    Also, this is just an example of a "reward" that makes it easier to record/ban hackers obtained by banning hackers, there could be more options.

    The only difference between this and moderators is that moderators does not have to upload the video to youtube...

    end result:
    People will witch hunt which will turn every game into a game of hackusating and not a game of playing.
    I like it but I dont think it will be added.

    This could be abused by those who have time to farm.
    Not everyone who report hackers are good, they can easily "prematurely ban" someone they dislike under the pretext of them breaking the rules.
    I think it's a nice way of thinking but will not be implemented.

    Should leave the punishing to staff - so innocent players will not get wrongly punished.
    Keep the suggestions coming though!

    I get your point, but I think that it's kinda hard (and stupid) to get 1000 alts and ban all of them by yourself, just to get the ability to prematurely ban, and then being found out to falsely ban players and then lose your ability to do so.

    Please elaborate. I don't get your point. Thanks.

    witch hunting is basically when you play something with the only intention to catch rulebreakers. Basically they will record everything that looks like it could be a hack and just report it.
    So the amount of reports increase
    And once people have that rank they can still abuse it even if they are demoted again. You can just prematurly ban a player then report him. Your report gets denied and the person unbanned. But then you just annoyed a person. If this is implemented and people get this rank they will stop reporting because they can just constantly reban the player.

    I understand what you mean, but as it put in my edit: EDIT: Of course, when players abuse this system by first having banned 1000 hackers and then falsely banning innocent players, they will lose their power, obviously.

    Also, this is just an example of a "reward" that makes it easier to record/ban hackers obtained by banning hackers, there could be more options.

    I hope this explains my point of view.

    yes but if they are about to lose their power they can just say "I thought that guy was hacking".

    Well staff has to proof they intentionally banned an innocent player on purpose. Everyone makes mistakes. If they lose their power they will prbly rant on the forums and just be overall annoying.

    Like ranting isn't already happening. I still get your point though, but I just think the pros outweigh the cons by far.

    On that forum i suggested
    Basically giving exp not points or coins etc
    If the player wants to gain that power they have to volunteer to become a staff member not staff giving random players that power, also i am nearly a 100% a person will use alt clients and ban them to have the ability to ban they will ban the enemy then unban which results them into win by default

    How in the world are you 100% sure that players "just" ban 1000 hackers to get power?

    no, not at all. You know how all of the reports there are? Imagine a larger number of appeals too. It would be chaos. I think if you're going to be a "moderator"
    then you should earn it the right way. I don't think this will be added. (At least I hope not)

    Giving players the ability to ban for making successful reports is not a good idea might as well just make them a moderator and demote them if they do anything wrong. I like the idea of a possible rank giveaway or just a tag on the forums would be nice.

    Why? It's not like everyone can ban everyone all at once and chaos?

    I've already suggested this once, But the amount of false reports will rise by quite a bit and it will make hackusating an issue.

    Not a bad one... Though it might be a good idea to make a thread on that, since placing this here is kind of off topic.
