Reporting Abuse

Recommended Posts

Like it or not, scammers and rulebreakers are too common of a site in Runescape, and whats the way to deal with these rulebreakers, the report abuse button. So I thought, how about a post where people discuss:

 

 

 

1. What to you qualifies as abuse or scamming?

 

 

 

2. How often do you report abuse?

 

 

 

3. Where would you draw the line for who you would report?

 

 

 

4. Do you warn rulebreakers, if so for what rules?

 

 

 

5. Where do you must often see rulebreaking?

 

 

 

6. Any tips for reporting, or in your opion the best way to report.

 

 

 

7. Or any other topic like these.

 

 

 

to help people learn about reporting, and the proper way to do it. So post away and I apologize if I am blatently ripping off another post.

1. What to you qualifies as abuse or scamming?

 

 

 

First off, scamming is stuff like luring (I think that was pretty much eliminated, i stopped playing a while ago so i wouldnt know.) item switching, an that kinda stuff. Abuse.. well. thats a hard one. People seem to think anything is abuse these days. Honestly, I dont consider it abuse until you start spamming, constantly following and repeating yourself, and stuff like that. Bad language doesn't bother me at all, and honestly I dont think it should be reportable. (ive had friends banned for calling someone an idiot -.- and for joking around saying i love you lets do it -.-)

 

 

2. How often do you report abuse?

 

 

 

In my 2+ years of playing RS before I quit for the first time, I NEVER hit report abuse on any of my accs (I had a main and a pure). I don't believe in it, and I think too many people whine and complain in that game. People report for anything, TBH I think there should be a 48 hr time between reports accept for the macro reporting which should be infinite.

 

 

3. Where would you draw the line for who you would report?

 

 

 

It has to really bother me and interfere with my game playing that cant be solved by using ignore. If someone contacts you on multiple accounts, macros in a way that is interfering with your gaming, or trying to scam you then reporting is fine. If someone says something you dont like, IGNORE THEM, dont ruin their gameplay because they accidentally got mad. Thats happened to me an my friends before, and it sucks because you may be ignorant to this but there are some people out there with actual problems and cannot control this. Me being one of them, I have actually blacked out because of rage, and yes it is a problem that isnt easy to solve, you cant just not get angry its not that easy.

 

 

 

4. Do you warn rulebreakers, if so for what rules?

 

 

 

I just ignore them, only people I warn are my friends and i warn them by telling them not to get cought. :P

 

 

 

5. Where do you must often see rulebreaking?

 

 

 

Everywhere. lol. I broke almost every RS rule myself before, and both my accs had 0 blackmarks. Why you ask, well, I never got reported. (no, I didnt macro to gain anything, I just set up one for 5 mins while i was at the comp to test if they had a detection system.. guess they dont. :3)

 

 

 

Really though, everyone breaks rules. I hear swears every time i log in, theres ways around them, and it doesnt bother me. (im a wow player, that should tell all. :])

3.Anyone, even my best friends would be reported if they broke a rule.

 

 

Omg he said tip.it! Website advertising, reported.

 

 

 

Omg, he tried to bypass the filter. Offensive language, reported.

 

 

 

Omg, he asked me my "name". Asking for personal details, reported.

 

 

 

Omg, he just said to me he blocks the f2p adverts with a program! Reported.

 

 

 

What a good friend you are <3:

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT: Sorry, I was being mean. Don't get mad. I just don't understand why'd you make Jagex rules go before friends. Rules are just rules. Friends are people..

1. What to you qualifies as abuse or scamming? Any bad-mouthing with any evasion of the censor.

 

 

 

2. How often do you report abuse? A few times daily, I camp and alch at the GE.

 

 

 

3. Where would you draw the line for who you would report?

 

My friends, most Tip.Iters(still a few idiots, sorry :? )

 

 

 

4. Do you warn rulebreakers, if so for what rules?

 

Most of the time I just tell them afterwards, they should've read the rules when they signed up for RS; as far as I'm concerned, that's enough of a warning.

 

 

 

5. Where do you must often see rulebreaking?

 

GE so much. Wilderness.

 

 

 

6. Any tips for reporting, or in your opinion the best way to report.

 

Usually I click on the red button entitled 'Report Abuse,' it usually seems to work out quite well.

 

7. Or any other topic like these.

1. What to you qualifies as abuse or scamming?

 

I only report for offensive language if I am truly offended by what the person is saying, not just because they said a certain word. Scamming includes item switching, lure attempts, "free armor trimming" ect.

 

 

 

2. How often do you report abuse?

 

I report anyone that has, or that I suspect has (macros) committed a serious offense. I report any scammers, website advertisers (the newbs actually parading around saying something like "go to for free RS membership!!!1one", not someone who says tip.it), password scammers; people like that. For macros; like if I'm rcing, and I see some level 65 in full mith/addy, I'll check their stats. Usually they'll have high rc (often 80-90+), and only their agility and mining levels are also ranked. Then after keeping my eye on them for a while I'll report them.

 

 

 

3. Where would you draw the line for who you would report?

 

Since I really only report people for especially bad rule infractions (scamming, advertising scam websites, password scamming, macroing ect) I'd report anyone for those offenses, even a friend. If a friend is capable of such things, they're not really a good friend anyway...

 

 

 

4. Do you warn rulebreakers, if so for what rules?

 

No.

 

 

 

5. Where do you must often see rulebreaking?

 

Mostly in places like varrock.

1. What to you qualifies as abuse or scamming?

 

A blatant breaking of a rule, censor evasion, advertising a cheat site, etc. Something that can objectively be verified without any uncertainty.

 

2. How often do you report abuse?

 

Now never because I don't play, but I would occasionally for the aforementioned reasons.

 

3. Where would you draw the line for who you would report?

 

I wouldn't report anyone I knew already.

 

4. Do you warn rulebreakers, if so for what rules?

 

No, it's not the player's responsibility.

 

5. Where do you must often see rulebreaking?

 

I don't really see much rule breaking.

 

6. Any tips for reporting, or in your opion the best way to report.

 

Only report if you're sure. Otherwise you're just going trigger happy hoping to get pmodded or something, and doing it for the wrong reasons.

How often do i report for me is CONSTANTLY.Sometimes when I'm bored I got to f2p Lumbridge and let my report abuse button run wild. The other day I was there for five minutes and reported:

 

 

 

20 Macro's (It was a family so I could report them without the wait)

 

2 scammers

 

1 for macroing, real word trading, item scamming, password scamming, and advertising :shock: This one was one of those scam sites for selling gold. the account advertising was a macroer and it asked for U.S. dollars and full rune for the money)

 

 

 

Oh, and I found a way to confirm if someone you reported has been banned :XD:

 

 

 

When you report someone, look him/her up in the hiscores. Check what they are ranked in. Several weeks later (unfortunately, yes, it can take that long for jagex to review an abuse report -.- ) you check their hiscores page again. If it says that they do not feature, they have since been banned. Above i mentioned a total of 23 rule breakers. 7 of them were banned...

What's your motivation for doing that, other than being bored? Sure you might get a few people banned, but what difference do you really think you're making? Not to say there's anything wrong with wanting to help, but don't you think you can do better things with your time than report bots that will be replaced in a matter of hours?

I generally report if this guy goes overdose with curses that are like: Just shut him up. OR noobs trying to cheat on newbs.

 

 

 

I dont really report otherwise because i dont see y u have to...

 

If a guy does **** I dont report because its just a curse. Does it affect u?

 

No! cuz its just a game. I am also used to curses and in other games like halo live there is cursing all the time. So WAt? Not like i do those things because i am considerate to others in RS.

 

 

 

Item scamming: Yeah ok its not good but u cant report someone for it.

 

Why? Because: This is wat theoretically happens

 

Scammer scene 1

 

Scammer: Selling one rune pl8 armor 50k!!!

 

Player A: Lets trade

 

Trade: Scammer puts in rune pl8/ Player puts in 50k. Decline

 

Scammer: sry wrong button

 

Player A: ok trade

 

Trade: Scammer puts in mith pl8 body. Player puts in 50k Accept.

 

 

 

Trader goes to bank

 

Player A: Wat w8 no fair (starts crying) no fair.

 

 

 

There is nothing wrong with this believe it or not. Is this good- No

 

All scammer did was do a trade decline and make a new trade and player A accepted. Scammer didnt force him to do that!!! End of story. No i dont scam. Yes i have been scammed before but u learn ur lesson to read trade screen 2

Firstly I'd say rulke breaking etc is not too common, as you make out. The only major issue atm is bots/RWT but thats taking major hits atm.

 

 

 

1. What to you qualifies as abuse or scamming?

 

Anything that breaks Jagex rules. Regardless of what it is.

 

 

 

2. How often do you report abuse?

 

Whenever I see something that needs reporting. If you want the game to be nice you need to do this. Otherwise there is no chance of them getting punished.

 

 

 

3. Where would you draw the line for who you would report?

 

Nowhere, if they break a rule I report them. Simple

 

 

 

4. Do you warn rulebreakers, if so for what rules?

 

If they are new and its an obscure rule (eg chat box flooding) I'll point it out to them. But largely no, if you do they just yell obscenities at you so its easier to just report and carry on.

 

 

 

5. Where do you must often see rulebreaking?

 

I see it nowhere often, other than in the bot locations.
