my only concern is that I get blacklisted by people weekly for not accepting every undo request or not caring that I take a while on complex hands.

I don't want to get reported for more than what I am doing. I fear the report thing could be abused.
Don't worry. People are free to blacklist you, if they don't like you denying undos.
But that is not a reason to get banned - and nobody gets banned just for the number of blacklist appearances.

This is exactly why I want there to be a distinction between blacklisted and being reported for abusive behavior. If you deny my undo, 99% chance I will blacklist you, but it's not because I think you should be punished.

+1 to giving an option for making a distinction between blacklisting due to abusive behavior and blacklisting due to personal preference. As Mike Thicke says, I often will blacklist players for reasons that they definitely should not be banned for, like denying an undo that I feel should be valid. I probably blacklist about 5 times as many people as I think should actually be banned.

But I'd really like to send a stronger signal to admins when there's abusive play. Just today I played against "HumbleMatt" (who is a paying player and has the expansions) and he started to slow-roll and say abusive things after I started winning. I imagine that he doesn't do this to everyone he plays against, which means admins may not get enough of a signal to actually ban him. This is unfortunate, as I think we should be dealing with this kind of behavior much more aggressively.

The idea is to blacklist for personal reasons like denied undo, actual slow playing (meaning taking more time to think than you think is warranted, not waiting 3:59 between 5 Copper plays).

If the player is doing something that you think warrants a penalty (extremely rude or harassing comments, waiting 3:59 between 5 Copper plays,...) then you blacklist them anyway *and* report them, either on discord or here, preferably by PM to me or you ask around and I and others usually see the question in due time and respond. Make screenshots if possible, but at least of course remember the game number(s) and the opponent's name.

This sounds fine, but the only indication of anything at all that you have on the client is a button with a lightning bolt on it, which doesn't even say what it does. There needs to be a button that's actually labeled "blacklist" and then once you blacklist someone you pop up a link or something to a place where they can be reported if desired.

Saying that the system works is kind of a stretch when nothing is labeled. If you just label things then the system actually works.

Glad to hear that you are open to receiving reports, Ingix. However, as Adam says, this really isn't discoverable; I've been playing since shuffleit launched Dominion (3 years?) and I'm only just now finding out that messaging you is an option for reporting bad behavior; IIRC in past discussions about this on the forum, people had said that blacklisting was the only way to do it and that admins reviewed the most blacklisted users. Putting this into the game UI would help a lot! Thank you.

Hi,

I would like to request a ban for a player(sadeas5) who told me to go die.
I have read the forum and found out that he said the same thing to VARMENDRION.

Thank you for looking into the matter.

As may be guessed from the number at the end of sadeas' name, that is not that player's first account, and I received multiple complaints about their behaviour in the past. As I wrote elsewhere, banning accounts is easy, banning players is harder.
