So I was in the Pet Pavillion inside The Hatcherery and i wanted to hatch a pet. I found a wizard who also wanted to hatch a pet. :D He said that he would he just had to go to his house and do some gardening to get a little more gold. He asked for me to be his friend so he could teleport to me when he would come back. Of corse i said i would be his friend and that he could go to his house. He was only level 10 and i was level 40. After a few minutes i started wondering where he was. :? Gardening doesn't take ten minutes unless your garden is the size of wizard city. Finally i looked on my friend list for his name, he was on the all friends but not on the friends online. The worst part was i couldn't remember his name to report him. Please reply if this has happend to you.

It's a very good thing that he was not online for you to report him as this would have been a false report, and a mark against you, not him. I suggest you simply remove them from your friends list and consider it a lesson learned.

Please re-read the rules about reporting.
https://www.wizard101.com/posts/list/28843.ftl

What is NOT considered a Reportable Offense?
Because false reporting can be construed and/or used as harassment of other players, we’d like to take a moment to ensure you are aware of what does NOT fall under the category of a reportable offense:

“S/he falsely reported me” or reporting someone for false reporting (2 wrongs don’t make a right)

“Won’t leave my house” (pick your friends wisely and avail yourself of the non-porting option)

“Being rude” (We’re sorry, we can’t enforce good manners. Use the ignore button liberally &/or change realms. It’s wholly up to you to choose to stay around someone that’s not nice to you.)

“Chain Stunning” (admittedly, it’s not much fun for the receiving team, but it’s not a violation of the game rules).

“Scamming” (Be sensible young Wizards, and ask yourselves if this person is really going to give you an item worth $30 of real money just for a few free Treasure Cards - the answer is, no, they're not. They're going to take your Treasure Cards and disappear. It's not a very nice thing to do, but all trades must be agreed upon by both parties. If the trade sounds too good to be true, it probably is, so don't accept the trade. )

“Spamming” (Although the Terms of Use mention spamming, it’s related to email/web posts. Yeah, it’s annoying in game and never of profound statement. Refer to “Being Rude”).

He could have been going to garden on another one of his characters. And you said you couldn't remember his name, but he was on your friend's list.. How would you know if he was still on there if you couldn't remember his name? Professor Greyrose is correct, good thing you didn't report him. Besides, that's a silly reason to report someone. Just delete him and find someone else.

Look Dierdre I knew he wasn't there cause he was the only one on my friend list. there was no one on when i cheaked and you don't see it on your friend list if they are on another wizard. Plus, i waited for a really really long time.

First of all, there is no need to be rude. Second of all, if you add someone, they are always on your friend's list. When they are online, they're are on your "online" list and if not, they're on you "all friends" list. It doesn't matter if that person is on other on of their wizards or not. If he wasn't on either list, then he deleted you and was just trying to mess with you. Either way, he was trying to be mean and you are better off without that person as a friend. Try to find someone that can help you right then and there. Or someone who you see is a good person and not simply trying to be mean.

i meant my online friend list. i wasn't being rude either. just expressing my feelings about your questionable post. and i am not passive aggressive either. i just think he wanted me to be his friend and if he wanted me to be his friend then he could have just asked. he didn't mean to be mean but it was awefully rude to just leave me. he could of just said gtg or something.

I try to give people the benefit of the doubt as much as possible.

There could be reasons this person was offline.

I have had to leave suddenly before because or real life issues/emergencies. Computers can loose connection and it is not always easy to fix the problem.

Then there was the time we lost electricity for 8 days dir to a storm in our area.

Yeah I agree. That has not yet happened to me but there is no need to report that person. Like safyrmoon wrote, it could have been an emergency. If someone does that, find someone alse to hatch a pet with!

I was reported just because i turned down a friend request. I turned him down 3 times and then I accepted him in order to ignore him. When i did ignore him he reported me. The report said i had use bad language which i never spoke to the player.
Yes False reporting is not nice. But reporting someone because they do not do what you want them to do, well, Think about it.
I have a rule in this game and everyone would be good to follow it.
I ask myself this question before i do something in the game. Would I want to be treated this way? If I tell myself I would not want to be treated this way then I do not treat anyone in this way. If i click on you and ask to be friends and you decline, I move on, I dont irritate you over and over.
Before you act, think.........
Nice people get friends, a thank you and smile go a long way.

Yes. my wizarding life has been filled with this. I added a friend to help me with chelsea court. We were in a 'hard battle' (I thought at the time) and suddenly, HE FLEED! He was off my friend list and then he reported me for 'bad language'.
It was terrible.
I am so sorry for all of you!
You should think before you act.
would you like to be treated THIS way?
Thank you.

Actually, sometimes... well more like most of the time, it's not what you think. Somebody ignored me in-game because they didn't realize they were on filtered chat I guess so I had to keep saying "Sorry, I don't know" eventually they got sick of figuring out exactly what I didn't know and left.
