    I've been playing Build Wars and I really love the game
    However, there is one element, which I dislike:
    If you vote on other builds, you already see the name of the creator
    This could lead to prejudices

    If they make it so that you see the name of the creator after voting, it would fix a lot of problems:

    - Mods/Admins wont have any advantages. When people see that the build is made by a staff member, they tend to vote better on the build
    - I was in a game and there was a guy telling that he had ALS and that he wanted people to take it easy and vote good on his build. Some people actually voted good on his (terrible) build (It was not even the theme...), just because he said he was sick. It doesnt matter whether that guy was sick or not; He did have an advantage. This could also be fixed by not showing the creator before voting
    - If you play with your friends, you will, ofcourse, vote better for your friends. So they, again, have an advantage and so do you.

    So in my opinion, the game would become better if they added this thing.
    What do you think? :)

    The main problem with this is that we won't know who to ban for inappropriate builds so easily.

    The creator of the build would show right after the voting
    I think there should be enough time to take a screenshot of the build and of the builder's name

    Agreed. There could be a countdown of 3 seconds or 5 which you can't vote and you will be teleported to another plot after that 5 seconds or so

    I can still imagine that there will be people screenshotting without an ign being shown and expecting us to do something about it

    As-well, the theme of the build, (at the begging of the game) and the name of the builder (While showing others builds) should be put on the chat. Once I had to get something from my desk, and the thing on the screen had already disappeared, and I had no idea what to build :/ And Yes I also agree with this idea too.

    With this in mind I think this should be added.

    Perhaps voting could be disabled the moment that the name is revealed. I would also suggest disabling chat whilst players decide, I mean basically every single time that my plot is highlighted I get the coloured chat on and beg for legendary votes, lol.

    Ye, it should disable voting as soon as you see the name
    Otherwise it wouldnt make any difference :p

    Most likely, there would be people who report builds without IGN
    However, there are like 12 people in a game and they could all report
    So if there is an inappropriate build, I think there would be at least 1 player who could report it, while showing the IGN

    On the topic of inappropriate builds, are any warnings required or do you just report it?

    There's already a warning at the main lobby, which should be enough I think
