"Scammer" rank

Discussion in 'SkyBlock' started by Snap, Jul 18, 2014.

?

Do you like the idea of a "scammer" rank being added to skyblock, as described in the thread?

  1. Yes, it will help counter scammers and make players more aware of who not to trade with.

  2. No, if trading is part of the game, scamming is also.

  3. Yes, but a "trustworthy" or "loyal" rank should be added to rise awareness to those loyal players.

    Although trading isn't actually a part of the game, scammers have a huge impact on players and their retaliations to getting scammed often tend to be similar to...
    "*********************************************"
    They then get muted, make appeals and make jobs of staff harder... So i suggest..... a SCAMMER rank! it will be next to the donor rank, presumably to the left, so that the donor rank stands out more, and can only be achieved with video evidence of another player scamming. after a week, the player will lose the rank. If caught scamming again, they will perminantly be left with the scammer rank staining their name.
    Do you think this would help tackle the scammer crisis? I think this idea has potential in my opinion :)
    Opinions?

    I think it's a great idea, it could stop people from getting scammed but who can set the rank?

    I like this idea. If this gets added the layout of the rank should be ||SCAMER|| , also the loyal rank should be ||Loyal||. Then the rank should only be showed in skyblock. ;)

    If anyone is going to manage these ranks, i think jinjo, tlmelord and myself would be the greatest trio for it. I am always trading on skyblock, and i know who you can and can't trust. Btw, Yoshi and waryblox (don't remember full names) they may be diamond ranks, but they are scammers! Don't trade with them ^.-

    Shouldn't be that difficult either, they don't have perks just a title.

    This would require a lot of coding and setting the permissions to make the rank. It would just be easier to have a wall at spawn with signs saying who is trustworthy and who is not.

    But over time wouldn't it just become a really, really long hallway full of names and when you're wanting to trade, you'd just want to trade. Besides, the public humiliation could be enough to get people not to scam, and it could be worthwhile even if it wasn't prioritized.

    How would it take a lot of coding? It's just a prefix, you can set it up easily with permissions ex... Are you talking about something else?

    On a server I used to be an admin on, we had a "Marked" rank. Essentially, if you'd been banned for something bad like a major grief, scamming someone, bullying someone off the server and we decided to unban you, everyone could see the Marked rank and be like "Oh shizzipoodles that's a bad dude, better not be his friend." Rather than shaming scammers, why not add a plugin like this one?
