    So, a while ago @Priley created this suggestion and @xRabbitGaming created this suggestion, which were my source of inspiration to create this suggestion thread. My is suggestion is that if a user gets banned for the use of illegal clients, and someone made a report with clear evidence of the user cheating, the link of the YouTube video should be added to their appeals page.

    Q: But why?

    A:

    • If this gets implemented, less people would complain about a false sentinel ban, because there is clear evidence, which means that moderators have less work to do, so that they have more time to play with friends, to study, or to do other things. Anyway, if this suggestion would be implemented, less moderators would get headache because of kids that claim to be banned falsely by the anti-cheat.
    • Imagine this scenario: User 1 cheats, and gets banned by sentinel. This is their first ban for cheating. User 2 reported them for cheating, but they were too late because sentinel banned user 1 before the report was handled by a moderator. User 1 gets a ban that lasts 7 days. But, if the evidence of user 2 would be used to ban user 1, user 1 could get a ban that lasts 30 days, which has more impact on user 1, so that they might stop cheating in the future.
    • This would cause a fewer amount of useless appeals because players want to be unbanned fastly; 30 days is not nothing.
    • LoonyRules would get less fake appeals about sentinel bans in this inbox.
    • Less players would cheat on CubeCraft, so this server would be a better place for anyone who'd like to join.
    • This would cause less toxicity! Less cheaters means less angry players that quit the server because of the cheaters.
    If you'd like to add anything to the list, feel free to comment!

    Q: What would the report look like if the evidence has been added?

    A:
    Instead of this:
    [​IMG]

    It would look like this:
    [​IMG]
    The color of the text could be dark blue (HEX code: #13137A), but you can decide whether that's a great color or not. Anyway, it should not be green, yellow/orange or red, because that could cause confusion.

    What would happen to the reports counter after a report is marked as 'added'?

    A:
    1 handled report would be added to the reports counter, just like what happens when you get a handled report. The reason: Normally, the player would get a ban that lasts 7 days, but now, the player gets a ban that lasts 30 days. The reporter was the one who made that happen, so in my opinion 1 handled report should be added.

    Q: What would happen to the cheater if they already have 1 ban by a staff member, and they get banned by sentinel and there was a player recording the cheater?

    A:
    They would be banned permanently, just like what happens when they get banned twice by video evidence.


    This was my suggestion thread + some questions and answers! Is this a good idea? Feel free to vote in the poll and if you don't like it, please comment your reason why you don't like this.

    You should add this only applies to Sentinel bans though. The user would be able to appeal but if there's evidence already the appeal would be on a "not urgent" list, I don't know exactly what it should be called :p

    That's a good suggestion and I hope they implement it in the future. I would also change another feature on the reports page. If someone reports a rule breaker, moderators shouldn't deny the report because he is using LabyMod. That happened to me once and now the glitch abuser I reported keeps on exploiting bugs. As they always say "thanks for taking the time to report this player...", maybe they should say "thanks for taking the time to report this player but u lost the time" as denying reports for the single reason of using an allowed mod, is an offence for the players that report rule breakers.


    Well, as I said your suggestion is really good, It would help a lot. We can see the screenshots when someone report us for swearing and those things, so we shouldn't we be able to watch the proof if it's a video?

    Could staff post a reply on my thread? I've seen quite a lot of hackers this week and I've reported them. They were closed because of sentinel. This suggestion could fix that problem. Is there actually a good reason not to add this?

    There's a reason they deny reports with labymod.. It's because you can use it to fake evidence of someone swearing, etc, by changing someone's name into their name. They don't deny the reports just because...

    I am shocked that this isn't already the current method of dealing with reports after a sentinel ban. What are the staff that support the current method of reports smoking? I want some of that

    awesome idea bro i like it

    and also we should add like an in game reporting system... like /report (player name) (reason).
    then it would be notified immidiatley to sentinel to observe.

    it would make it so much easier!!!!

    (p.s im so sorry if there is already a system like that... but i havent found it yet so its not rude on my part)

    Sorry, but sentinel does not work like watchdog. Sentinel always watches every player on the network, so the /report command is not needed. Though I like like that you like my suggestion :)

    okay
    this time i dont agree
    i myself have 3 accounts (now there are 2, 1 got hacked)
    my main account is the one whom i play with the most.
    other acccount... just for using hax
    okay dont get me wrong but i am absolutely irritated by some games.
    i dont use any other pvp hax or something. i only sometimes use xray to find the gold block in hedge maze in mminerware. it is all based on stupid luck!
    I PLAY OTHER GAMES FAIRLY PLZ DONT GET ME WRONG.
    still i do not get like all the blocks of the game.. i only score like 4-5 or lesser even with xray bcoz it moves all the time and sometimes end up far from u and near others... so its not that much of a cheat okay
    never got banned or kicked :D

    i never use it on my main account Extalion_fr. im currently online u can spy on me
    i only use it when i get irritated and only on my 2nd account (im not going to say the name!)

    "sentinel is always watching"
    SEEMS LEGIT!

    What does this have to do with the report system though? You only made yourself seem very untrustworthy now.

    @MadBad_The_R3LiC_HuNt3r by 'free' account you actually mean a stolen account. Those sites generally harvest Minecraft logins with 'claim your cape' style scams. Please do not link to them and please save up and buy the game, you will get your moneys worth out of it.
