New Rule Regarding Blacklists/scammers

43 posts in this topic

Hey everybody, the Mods and I have been discussing the recent influx of threads about players who scam others over trading. With help from some of the folks up at The Behemoth, we've decided on our course of action for these kinds of posts.

 

Due to the potential issues that are tied to it, blacklists with the intention to alienate other players will no longer be allowed. This applies to all forums, not just BattleBlock Theater. Any list of gamertags or usernames meant to shame the people in it will be removed. This is in part because of the problematic behavior that may result from name and shame, which some of you may have already seen taking place. It's also because we don't want to risk blacklisting an innocent player over word of mouth. We would rather assume that everybody is innocent instead of starting a witch hunt for anybody who is called out.

 

We obviously don't encourage scamming, and any thread that helps players to avoid being scammed will continue to be encouraged, as long as it doesn't hand out names to avoid.

 

In addition, we will also remove any stories users post about scamming other players as well as any posts encouraging/teaching other players to scam. It's okay to discuss how scams are played out as long as it is purely to warn other players to avoid it. Any sort of bragging about scamming other players is heavily discouraged.

 

 

So, just to recap:

 

NOT ALLOWED:

  • Posting any gamertags or usernames of players to shame or avoid, especially in a list.
  • Posting stories about scamming other players.
  • Teaching other players to scam, or encouraging them to.

ALLOWED:

  • Teaching other players how to avoid being scammed.
  • Sharing stories about being scammed (without naming names).
  • Posting lists of gamertags and usernames, as long as they're done with permission from the users.

 

Keep in mind that we won't be deleting just any username lists. We realize there are threads listing peoples' usernames for the sake of finding players online or listing their birthdays, and these will continue to be openly accepted. We mostly just want to avoid any future naming and shaming on the forums. If you see anybody doing so, just report them and we'll handle the rest.

This is good. I've met a few people that thought I was on the blacklist... But made a mistake because they saw my name from a post I had made.

As  someone  who  has  entirely  forgotten  about  Battleblock  Theater  and  its  respective  subforum,  I  suppose  this  is  good  news.

This is the right thing to do.

 

I don't know who's worse, those that scam, or those that make threads posting their tags as if we'll ever remember them.  But keeping the later out of here sounds good!

Guilty as charged.

On lighter news, instead of someone to avoid, here's to a good hearted player who cares about the community, no matter who has done him wrong. His gamer tag is EX Party Boy 96 and he is giving every single star head for 100 gems or as much yarn as a person has. Then, he uses that gems and yarn to give to the new players, just so that they get a good kick start on the game. This man is giving back to the community, and he deserves recognition. Thank you for reading.

LOL dude, if being illiterate implies that my eyes get tired of reading this weird font you chose, then I'd rather be illiterate.

One guy tried to pull a scam on me with the chicken head for 0 gems but I managed to click at just right time and get the chicken head. The troller got trolled, in other words 8-) . Right after the trade he started swearing and left the game.

(Hey maybe if we use subliminal messages to put the hackers' gamertags in, we could warn our fellow gamers about liars and cheaters so that other hardcore-gamers playing BBT don't get their stuff stolen by the hackers. We have to be sneaky though so that it doesn't look like we're breaking rules.)

Not much you can do. They tried to scam you. You got away. Nicely done.

Well, you probably want to report their profile to microsoft.

For more information on microsoft reporting policies, how to's and faq's, I suggest visiting their site/forum.

File a complaint, review the player and avoid him/her, then send harsh, threatening hate messages that say that you reported them and they will be banned soon. Doesn't work all the time, but that is my way.

Yup, what they said. ^

 

As unfortunate as it is to be scammed, these forums aren't meant to be a medium of justice for the game itself. That biz is more on Microsoft and Behemoth's side.

I recently saw a player attempt to trade another player the king head. I immediately canceled the game (I was running it) and was fortunate enough to get the gamertag of the player. How can I get it to you?
