Is there somwhere to report players?
« on: 18 October 2020, 02:36:33 AM »
A player in my game right now is playing one card at a time as slow as possible because he is losing and because he tried to undo after using +1 coin and +1 card on a pawn and then drawing an action card and I did not allow it.

We are using a Google form for that:

https://tinyurl.com/dominion-abuse

The reports can only be seen by a few mods, and it helps keeping all the information in one place. You need to enter a few pieces of information (like involved players and a game ID), then describe what happeneded (like you did here).

We discourage players posting the reports publicly (like here), because in the past there were a few cases of backlash from the reported on players to the players that made the reports.

Please use the above link to report the incident with more detail (like who your opponent was).

Thanks,
Ingix

Any way to put a sticky on this?  (Or to put the link in 2 or 3 places in the fora here--keeping it at/near the top via sticky--so that the included link is really easy to find).

A link in the Dominion game itself would be ideal.  It could pre-fill in most of the info for us.

If you feel wronged by another Dominion player, don't hesitate to call your local police.

I have reported numerous players and never gotten a single follow up or response back about what happened. Is this merely a fruitless effort and a black hole? Does this team actually take any action or am I wasting my time?

They do get read and sometimes discussed on the internal discord. Ingix does all the banning these days and he seems to stay on top of things for the most part.

The main thing I use the "contact information" for is to get additional information like screenshots if the reporting player mentions they have made some, or ask for clarification if the player didn't post the chat log (when it comes to toxic languge, for example). Usually I'd say it happens for 1% of reports.

It's "Discord", not "discard" ;)

If you give your username from the forum in the report (because I'm only trying the exact same username as the in-game name, and I know even there are mismatches), then I'll contact you via direct forum message. You can have those directed to your registration email address in your forum profile settings, or you'll get informed of them when you next visit the forum logged in.
