OK, I'm a level 33 balance wizard and have been reported two or three times for doing nothing but beating people in pvp battle. I'm getting really sick of it and am not sure how long it will be if I eventually get banned.
When you report someone, or you are reported, a message is sent directly to Mr Lincoln that includes the chat logs of everything that was said before and after that report.
Mr Lincoln then reads the log and assess the situation. He determines how bad the offense was, looks up prior offenses for the reported individual, and based on that assessment he issues sanctions such as muting or banning and sends an email to the offending account explaining the violation and the sanctions.
If the report was falsely made, that is determined as well, and the player who made the false report is investigated as to whether or not they have made previous false reports. False reports are just a egregious as valid ones, and similar sanctions can be levied against repeat offenders of false reporting.
Everything that a player enters into the chat window is logged. These larger chat logs are also routinely checked for those infractions that are not reported.
If you want the prize, you have to build the ladder rung by rung. There are no shortcuts.
You do have to remember this is NOT HALO or CALL OF DUTY
This is a family oriented place to play (Of all ages) and taunting , saying degrading stuff, trying to curse around the chat limits
I have many times reported those who do that and wish they would be suspended for a few days if they are found guilty of it. You are lucky to even chat freely unlike other games out there. TOONTOWN is very simlar but gathers a younger audience but no FREE CHAT unless you know the person PERSONALLY.. Enjoy the Game but watch the Mouth .. or the Texting
