Player Report Requirements [MUST READ BEFORE POSTING]

Recommended Posts

Are you the victim of a severe loss due to a rule breach in which another player purposely broke a rule? Witness a player hack or bug abuse? Know of someone breaching community policy to a severe extent? Been severely insulted out of character or been threatened with a cyber attack?

If you have evidence of any of the above situations this is the place for you to report your incident and come to a resolution among players with the assistance of a game administrator or moderator.

This section is for OUT OF CHARACTER rule breaches of the Eclipse Roleplay Server and Roleplay Rules.  If you are reporting the LSPD, LSEMS, or SADOC for IN CHARACTER actions or OOC breach of faction duties, please instead report them using their respective internal faction review processes. For LSPD you can submit a formal complaint to the  Internal Affairs Division , for LSEMS contact the LSEMS Medical Review Board, and for SADOC contact the SADOC Human Resources.

Please do not take reporting another player lightly and reserve player reports for situations that have caused severe loss or were abused for benefit. Consider if you could possibly teach this player or if you've tried to come to a resolution on your own. Reporting another player should be reserved for your final options when a rule breach has occurred. Always try to teach other players in the community, especially with newer players, as well as help them truly understand your point of view prior to simply reporting them if something doesn't go your way.

Reports involving insults must be truly offensive, being called an idiot or saying you are stupid while offensive may not be report worthy. If you truly feel offended or cannot get the player to cease contact with you then you may report them.

If you decide you need to report you must follow the guidelines below and do your best to inform and provide evidence of informing them that they have a player report on them. Staff too are held to the same rules while playing so if you feel an Eclipse Staff member has broken the rules while playing also feel free to report them as well just like any other player.

Player Report Forum Section Rules

  • Ensure you have read the rules and still believe the player has broken a specific rule before posting.
  • Attempt to inform the reported player(s) of the report through tagging or screenshots of telling them via PM they have been reported.
  • Failure to use the proper format will result in an immediate closing of the report without investigation.
  • Report must include the unix date/time stamp of the situation which can be found on the HUD at any point while in-game next to your ID in the bottom left corner as seen below:
    image.png.5fdbd501f4c29cdc65c373ffe164caf7.png
  • We do not accept reports from banned members of the community or those who do not have an accessible in-game account.
  • Players who are NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED in the report are not allowed to respond unless sharing necessary or pertinent concrete evidence ("I can confirm." or "That's what happened." is not acceptable). If you comment on a report you're not involved in you may be warned by a forum moderator.
  • Evidence of the rule breach is required such as a screenshot or video. Evidence from other players may be used and it is permitted for that player to post concrete evidence for you.
  • Do not PM anyone from the Eclipse Admin Team regarding your reports, or post reports directly to an administrator. Situations must be handled in /report in game, and on the forums out of game, and no where else.
  • No double posting or thread bumping. One report for one situation, and it will be handled as promptly as possible.
  • Once a staff member has made a final decision, you may not post the player report again. If you received punishment, you may try to attempt a punishment appeal one time for each punishment obtained. See the Punishment Appeals section for more information.
  • The person reporting must be directly involved in the situation, except in severe cases such as cheating, exploiting, or cyber threats.

Required Report Topic Title

First Last or PlayerID (Specific Rule Broken)

This should be the name of the player you are reporting and the rule(s) you believe they've broken. Rules can be found in the link at the top of the page and will be required to be cited in the body of the format as well.

Examples:

Dante Wiggins (7.2 Deathmatch)
Ramon Carter (6.5 NLR, 6.4 Powergaming)
ID 25, Don_Underwood, ID 4 (6.3 Metagaming, 6.4 Powergaming)

 

Required Report Format

 

Player(s) being reported: Name(s) here
Date of interaction reported: Date here
Unix time stamp from HUD: Unix time stamp here

Your characters name: Name Here

Other player(s) involved: Name(s) Here

Specific rule(s) broken:

" PASTE THE FULL RULE FROM THE RULE BOOK HERE "

How did the player break the rule(s)?

Explanation of how they broke the rule(s) here.

Evidence of rule breach:

Input evidence linked or embedded here.

Example

Player(s) being reported: Ramon Carter, ID 25, and ID 1
Date of interaction reported: 1/1/2019
Unix time stamp from HUD: 1548003445

Your characters name: Travis Palmer

Other player(s) involved: Travis McGregor

Specific rule(s) broken:

"7.2.1 Deathmatch is the act of killing or hurting another player (or damaging their property) without a proper roleplay reason.
An attempt to break this rule will result in a temporary or permanent ban."

How did the player break the rule(s)?

Ramon had not met Travis before, but Ramon came with two masked friends, ID 25 and ID 1, and pulled out a gun on Travis. Travis put his hands up and complied but before any other RP could happen all 3 began to open fire on Travis and killed him while he was complying. I don't think they had a valid in-character reason to kill which is needed as explained in the rule above.

Evidence of rule breach:

*Video evidence URL*
*Screenshot of the players ID's*
*Screenshot of all 3 players being PM'd and informed of the coming report*

What constitutes as evidence?

  • Evidence is always required. Other players confirmations are not considered evidence. Posting "I saw it happen too." or "I can confirm this is the truth." without additional relevant evidence to the report is forbidden and may result in a forum warning.
  • All video and screenshot evidence may not be edited or tampered with in any way. Posting tampered or manufactured evidence may result in a ban from the game.
  • Chatlogs are not considered concrete evidence but may help support your case. This can not be the sole form of evidence of the loss.
  • Evidence can also be in the form of a confirmed bug report, admin approval in /rm from a report in-game, or a link to a concluded report.
  • In character evidence must be roleplayed such as turning an in character recording device on/off, and if it is to be RP'd hidden, roleplayed being concealed in some manor, in order to be considered as a valid in-character video or photo.
  • Videos and screenshots must be viewable with readable resolution, screenshots must be at a reasonable sized. Again no editing or tampering with video or photo evidence. Audio should not be removed from the footage. If video or audio contains sensitive information, you may request to send to the administrator directly as to not make the information public.

Good luck resolving the report for both parties, compromise, teaching, and prevention of a similar future disagreements is the primary focus of the punishment and report system used by Eclipse. An admin will respond to your report as soon as they are available and depending on the rule breach and severity will make a ruling ranging from RE ROLEPLAYING a situation administering WARNINGS or administering admin PUNISHMENTS as well can make requests to REFUND or return assets lost or stolen in the course of roleplay if it is still in play. Lost assets due to a report can be requested for refund. See the Refund Request Requirements for more information on refunds after your report is resolved.

You do not get to suggest or decide punishments given and should never PM an admin about a forum report directly.
