Guidelines for reporting offensive conduct in chat
We ask that you also follow these guidelines when reporting users for offensive conduct:
- If someone starts abusing you in game chat, do not retaliate or you may find yourself chat banned as well – use the report user button to report them.
- Always put a ‘reason’ in the user report. As you may appreciate we receive MANY user reports every day and having to read through all of them is very time consuming (especially when people misuse the system, make false reports etc.) and trying to ‘umpire’ disputes is difficult and even more time consuming when the reporting party is also contributing to the dispute.
- Report the player a maximum of twice per incident: once when the abuse commences and then, if it continues, report them when it ceases. This will prevent your reports from being ‘ignored’.
