    Hey! :)
    As all of you know we do have a trading area at Skyblock´s spawn. We tried to make it as scam-safe as possible but we unfortunately can´t prevent it happening.

    What is scamming?:
    You want to trade with a player. Player A drops his items and Player B picks it up. Now Player B tp´s away without dropping anything. Player B scammed. Player A was scammed.

    What can you do?:

    Scamming is not allowed but there is no actual punishment for it at the moment. When you tell me in game that someone scammed you I feel sorry for you and wish I could help but I can´t. I can warn the player in game but in the end it is your decision who you trade with.
    Again, what you can do is record. If you provide video evidence I can do something. Rules are similar to PvP logging.
    - record video evidence (2 videos would be great, 1 is enough if the evidence is really good)
    - post it in the "Report a player" section like every other report
    - tag me in the post, other staff members can also decide but feel free to tag me in it

    I have to say that this is really complicated. To record a scammer twice is most likely impossible in my opinion. But for those who fight for the right, why not. Try your best :)

    Warning: If players make a hunt-the-scammer game out of this I won´t take care of them anymore. Be serious and mature.

    What if you scam someone that previously scammed you, and that one time where you scam you he records you and manages to mute you...
    Or maybe a player could randomly give an item to a player afk and claims in the video that that person is not giving his item back and since the player is afk he won't be able to respond so he is muted for scam.

    First, you don´t have to suggest what punishment could be given to the players who scam ;)
    Second, I will see what punishment I´ll give when someone reports a scammer


    Then you are muted. You scammed, you are not better than him then, right :p

    You trade in the "trading area" and not at spawn. I doubt that you will go afk in a trading area room?

    No maybe he could do this to someone afk at spawn and not in the trading room. Or maybe do this to someone who was still for a few seconds.

    As I said above you need more proof than just one video. I doubt that he´ll record you at spawn twice.
    Don´t panic too much :)

    How is one that got scammed is getting a second proof video? I don't think someone is stupid enough to trade with you again nor let you in while he is trading with someone else!

    The other problem with spawn trade center is that when you enter the water other players can then enter and jump in water and steal your item before you get it. Like Vereijken8 did to me twice. The trade center is just crappy. Needs a complete remake. Something only two people can be in at one time. Also you can't leave until you trade something. Just some suggestions.

    We built the best trading center we could think of at that time. The doors do not open if both players stand on the right plates. I have to admit that the trading center is not the best thing but it is all we got at the moment. I will try to think about a better system maybe.

    Skyblock had that, but people found glitches with it and abused these glitches.
