  • Reporting Guide

    While reporting a player is as simple as using /report [player] [reason] - in order for it to be fully effective it must be used correctly.

    Not all reports are good reports, here are some quick tips to make sure your report is useful to the staff member reviewing it.

    • False reports or abuse of the reporting system is against the rules.
    • Be as detailed as possible within the report limits. If more information is needed, a staff member will contact you.
    • Not all reports constitute a punishment. "Proof Without A Doubt" needs to be achieved in order to issue a punishment.
    • If you fear retaliation for your report, you may contact any member Staff Member directly through the forums.


    Commonly Reported Offenses

    Spam / Caps: Spam and caps reports are some of the most common. Often, these infractions are simply accidents. It is important to know the difference. You should only report a player if they are clearly abusing the system. Check Eternal Realms Rules for more details.

    Foul / Inappropriate Language: Eternal Realms is a family friendly community and all chat should be kept as friendly as possible. Insulting other players or causing discomfort by having inappropriate conversations is not tolerated.

    Stealing: As mentioned above, be as detailed as possible. Reports with simply “stealing” as the reason are extremely difficult to investigate, and will likely not get resolved. Do not give a player a valuable item unless you are 100% sure they are trustworthy.

    Greifing: Almost always better to message an online staff member. If you do need to /report in-game, please add as much information as you can.

    Hacking: Do not attempt to engage the player. /report the player and do your best to avoid them.
