    I have recently reported a fly hacker in eggwars. So I post the thread, and then a staff member replies back saying: "You need video proof." BULLCRAP!! Are you guys just that lazy that you can't see the proof and ban someone!! The pictures I posted were VERY obvious!! HOW COULD YOU NOT BAN HIM!!! I thought you guys liked having a hack-free server. Just today I encountered 2 fly hackers! And they both told me the same thing "I never get banned XD" REALLY? I don't have the space on my computer to store 100 videos of Hackers!!! Come on guys, step up your game!

    Well sometimes I think it should be allowed with teamers if you see 2 people on solo standing next to each other its very obvious or if someone is flying in the air 20 blocks away from their island its also very obvious so +0,5

    They require video evidence because of a weird bug that randomly sends people flying into the middle of the void and they just stop. Also, it would be a bit biased if someone had a knockback 2 sword on a high ledge and they were knocked out. Also, if someone is unbanned you can delete the video.

    No sometimes bad connection can make players float in the air now if you can get a screen of them flying and looking down at someone and hitting them that seems like enough evidence but you need all that in one screenshot.

    You see, images are easy to edit to make false reports and often don't show the full situation.

    It wouldn't be smart to accept photos as proof to report hackers/teamers.

    If there is a photo as "proof" of a fly hacker then this can mean multiple things:
    - real hacks
    - someone lagging
    - knockback sword/punch bow
    - someone jumping
    - and believe it or not it can also be photoshop

    For teaming it would be hard to notice if they are teaming. Two players in a screenshot doesn't mean anything.

    Therefore photos shouldn't be allowed as valid proof to report players :)

    A tip. Make the video.Edit it so its short enough. Upload it to youtube. Delete the videos from your computer. Problem solved. Tip use avidemux and OBS. I use those 2 programs regularily id I encounter a hacker on any server.
    And no screenshots should never be able to ban someone for hacking.

    photos can be manipulated and easy to frame someone for hacking video evidence is easier for the staff to determine if the player really is hacking or is just lagging or is just good however you can use photos and screenshots for mutes like someone harassing another player or using inappropriate language you need to warn then atleast 3 times but you can use photos for that..for hacking its harder to determine if the player is hacking or not as for it could easily just be lag or someone was able to knock the player back and make it look like hes flying and for the other hacks its even harder to tell as for photos dont help with hacks like KillAura, Anti_KB and crits its pretty much impossible to tell if the player is hacking so thats why you need video evidence of a hacker so this is a -1 from me

    I have been "flying" before and it displays the 'Flying is not enabled on this server' because I have a really slow computer. That is common for everyone on any server. Once before that I was jumping down on the last person with a diamond axe critical hit, and he took a perfectly timed photo of me right above him with the axe and I got banned for a short while before I convinced them. So it should stay this way

    Its way too hard to show that a person is hacking through photos as they could be cropped, edited, or faked. Just take video evidence.

    It's quite hard to tell if someone is hacking in photos, and as @PinkSparkleWolf said, they can easily be faked.

    I think this thread could be closed soon, just wanted to say some last things.
    That's not very nice.
    We can't see no proof because a picture of a player is not proof.

    Obviously what?

    Well, it's easy, a picture is not proof.

    Who doesn't...?

    So...? What's your point? Everyone encounters hackers.

    Come on, step up your game! Or PC.

    Says the one whose PC isn't able to save a recorded video..... :/

    If you've recorded a video of a hacker, you post it on YouTube and then you can delete the file from your storage. PC space problem solved.

    Is someone was falling or if someone was jumping to your island from 4 blocks away you could take a picture and frame them for hacking.

    Does it make good toast?
