Player Report Format & Rules

Unread postby LaKiller8 » Wed Oct 31, 2018 3:33 pm #450822

Rules regarding player reports:

1. Do not post in a player report if you are not directly involved(the administrator handling it or one of the accused players), contributing as a direct witness, pointing out a precedent/relevant ruling/part of the rules, posting as a character witness or providing relevant information from the logs.
2. You must wait until the end of the round, to avoid breaking the IC in OOC rule. It is recommended you wait a bit longer so all parties have time to cool down.
3. Only create a report if the issue couldn't be handled in game for some reason or if you were told to create one (for example due to the round ending or there not being enough administrators to handle it).
4. Use the template. Failure to use the template will cause your report to take longer to be resolved, and any admin can request you to edit your post to include the template before giving a response.
5. Try to keep your player report calm, concise, to the point, and properly formatted. No one likes to read a wall of text, or an angry ragey post.
6. If you are going to post as a character witness (for or against), keep it simple and easy to read.

Character witness
A character witness is your overall impression about the accused person/people in general and their character. For example, you may say that you think they are a great roleplayer that handles any kind of situation well or a complete shitter that you've seen soft-griefing on several occasions. These posts help us make an overall picture about said person and their place in the community.


The process itself:

After you post your report, an administrator will respond at most within 7 days (usually much sooner) posting your notes and the logs from that round. The logs will include both a parsed version that anyone can dive through for transparency or in case we miss something, and specific logs from the situation you described that is the apparent rule break. During this entire time anyone is free to contribute according to the posting rules described above. After either everything has been said, or 7 days have passed from the date of the notes and logs being posted, a ruling will be made by the administrator handling it to determine if said player is guilty or not guilty and additionally what punishment will be applied in case they are found guilty. The headmin can overrule this decision if they think the decision was incorrect or to set a new rule or a precedent.
