Mafia Player Reports / Rapport de joueur du jeu Mafia: Moderators - aamirus, Unknown1234, Mugy, Helz, Arrow, rumox, Nighthawk, AIVION, Gyrlander, Light_Yagami

And here is the reason why those Keepers exist. The Reports Section contains all violators of the game, The hackers, the Gamethrowers, those pesky Griefers and not to mention the damn skypers!
And here is the setup that you must follow to make a credible report
Spoiler : Crimes and Punishments :
"Crime" Trolling: Trolling is acting like an idiot for the pursuit of hilarity, or Otherwise screwing with people in a Manner That Does not ruin the game . Severity: None Yep, that's right, nothing will happen to regular trolls.

"Crime" Role-Quitting This one is obvious. This is for people who ruin All Those games and setups by just leaving Effective seeing Their role card. Example: "DOCTOR? Fuck this, I'm out." Severity: Low Role ragequitters are bad people. The game sometimes punishes Automatically em, too. But do not bother reporting 'em.

"Crime" Griefing griefing is similar to trolling, goal results in the game Actually Being ruined. This is trolling taken too far. Severity: Medium

"Crime" Cheating: Cheating is using methods unintended by the game (Such as abusing Skype screen lag, or forcing players to read Their role cards) to gain unfair advantage over other year players. Severity: High

"Crime" Game- Throwing This is intentionally playing to lose. An example of this is a Mafioso giving out the names of his fellow Mafia to the town falling on his trial. Severity: High Crime: Abuse Abuse is abusing donor or (more seriously) moderator abilities. This includes kicking people at random, cheating with the mod message system, etc.. Severity: Very High

"Crime" Hacking: Hacking is obvious: getting donor codes or moderator abilities, Modifying bank files, mining players' roles, etc.. are all examples of this. Severity: Very High

Every punishment is up to my sole discretion (Dark.Revenant). Moderator input, trustworthy members, and WELL-Reasoned, WELL-WRITTEN REPORTS are more Likely to result in punishment.

Punishment General guidelines:
Ignored A discredited report

On-Hold (3 months) One or multiple unconfirmed reports

Watch List (4 weeks) Low or Medium Severity: Multiple reports High Severity: A report Confirmed Very High Severity: A credible report

-Vote Kick List (2 + weeks) Medium Severity: Confirmed A criminal history report and a High Severity: Multiple Confirmed reports criminal history or a Very High Severity: By Administrator decision

Ban List (4 + weeks) High Severity: Multiple Confirmed reports and a criminal history Very High Severity: By Administrator decision Point Ban (Permanent) High Severity: Any Confirmed reports of hacking bank file. This disables all dot gain, point resets to 0, disables all points and privileges. Dropping from Ban List KickVote to List or List from KickVote to Watch List will result in a sentence equal to double the Time Spent in the previous punishment level (ie someone Sentenced to 2 weeks in the KickVote List will then have 4 weeks in the Watch List Effective the first term is up.)

S4: Interface:

Located on the home page (On the left side of each forum) lies an image of a hat, or in some cases a locked icon if you don't have access to that particular forum. The Hat shall be lit up and mostly red when there are new posts to be found in that forum, the locked box icon would be blue instead of grey.

----
Under each of the Forum names lies a "bubble" with a sub-forum next to it. When there are new posts in the sub-forum the "bubble" lights up teal.
----

On the top right of each forum board (EX: Meeting Hall - This is the general category for the forum [ - ] ) is a box with a "-" inside it. Clicking this closes that Forum board from view into a small bar with the name of forum board to tell you what the bar contains.

----
On the box to the right of the homepage contains boxes that list all most recent posts, threads started, and group discussions. (All of which can be closed by this: [ - ]
----
There is a flashing text bar that lists all current Signs ups located in Mini-Forum Mafia. If you click the name of the FM in the bar it takes you to the page to sign up for that game.
----
When you go to your post there is a couple of options for customization of that post located around the bottom of the message itself.
There is a "*" like symbol on the left, underneath your Avatar, post count, rep points, infractions/warnings, date joined. This button, which can only be found on other users posts, can be used to add/subtract rep points to/from that user. (This is primarily used for credibility/popularity/Rep Power gain.)
----
Next to that symbol is a triangle with an "!" centered inside. This allows you to report a post if you believe it breaks on of the forum board rules.
----
On the right side of your/others posts there are 3 or 4 small texts that allow "Editing your post" (Which opens a text box containing your message), "Reply" (Which brings up an empty text box), "Reply with Quote" (Text box with a quote of the post you are replying to.), and a quotation symbol with an "-> " <-" centered in it. (Which allows you to flag that post for quotation along with any other posts marked by the same symbol.)
----
Top right to a post is a post number (EX: #3) which links you to that post. It lets others know that they can use this number as a "Mini-Quote" for what they are referencing.
----
Opposite the post number is a time stamp that details roughly what time a post was made.
----
At the bottom of a thread page is a text box accented with post customizations and a big button titled "Reply to Thread" (Unless the thread is closed. In which case the button will be titled "Closed Thread")
Below the text box (along the border of it) is a "[ x ] Show your signature" and three boxes titled "Post Reply" "Go Advanced" "Cancel" which do as titled.
----
Underneath that is links to "Previous Thread" | "Next Thread" which take you to the previous or next thread.
----
At the bottom of the page, of a thread, is the Thread information and, if you created the thread, a list of members who have read it as well as their number.
Below that, Thread Tags and posting Permissions.
----
At the bottom of every page on the site is Text links that take you to different, usually supporting pages, to the site.
• Contact us: Which takes you a report like page that allows you to send an email "Message" to the Site Admin.
• Sc2 Mafia Index: Takes you to the homepage.
• Archives: Takes you to a bare, undetailed, version of the home page.
• Top: Takes you to the top of the page.

----
Across from these links is a drop text where you can alter the way you browse the site. (EX: DarkCore - Blue, DarkCore - Test, Etc.) and another drop box to edit the language of the site.

And located at the very very bottom of the site is a collaboration of general information such as: Time Zone, Time, Site Provider, Etc.

It takes you to the donate page, which contains all information about donations to the game and how to get recognition for your selflessness. (There is the word Donate in yellow at the bottom, click this to go straight to the final processes of donating.)

2. Re: New User Guide

Deserves a sticky

3. Re: New User Guide

This is really great so far, Damus. Thanks!

Feel free to make multiple posts if it helps keep things organized; I will not infract for post farming if it's double posting for different sections of a guide. If you end up doing that, I will remove all posts that interrupt the guide once you are done, before we move it into it's eventual resting place (probably GD? Not sure yet).

The goal for this is to consolidate as many stickies as possible into a single thread (that will probably get posted in several places). Maybe add in info about the MC server (from the sticky in GD) and the special tags (vote count system, LaTeX tag)?

Slaol is going to be Bug Reports mod, btw.

4. Re: New User Guide

THEY ARE CALLED GLOBAL MODERATORS NOT SUPER MODERATORS!!1 also cyan = moderator green = section mod? or is it the other way around? I was cyan for a day so that usergroup might be implemented again at some point in the future.

5. Re: New User Guide

Cyan isn't moderator.

6. Re: New User Guide

That is the word oops used for it.

7. Re: New User Guide

Cyan (Which is Teal for this guide due to look similarities.) is for Respected. This color is assigned to mods who use it as their permission group. Yayap uses it as well as CmG and Cap. Hence the use.

I will make more in depth sections for R&D, Forum Mafia, and about the bar at the top of the page. (The use of each tab), PMs, and Profile settings for a next instillment.

Green is moderator. Oops trolled you by making you Cyan for a bit (OR maybe it was Yayap)

I think we need a section that is more obvious for new members. Either a new section dedicated to new members, or just making the current one more obvious. If you aren't entirely sure where this should be put, how will they know where to look for it? The site was pretty confusing when I first joined. Might encourage more people to put in an effort if it is more obvious where to go for the information.

Also, can we just all +rep Damus a couple times?

Agreed on both counts. Seems weird to not have an Introductions forum.

The ranks are wrong. Granted, it's my fault, because I forgot to update the thread when I changed them a while back. The new post counts are, in order; 10, 25, 50, 75, 100, 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1500, 2000, 3000

Also needs to include super respected symbol, I wish I could rep damus but I have to spread it around first

12. Re: New User Guide

Some more things:

You forgot the super respected emblem:
If you want to get the proper name styles, use the [class] tag like this: [class=admin]Stuff[/class] which makes: Stuff. The classes can all be found here: http://www.sc2mafia.com/forum/client.../userranks.css

@Oops
See I knew I forgot something, thanks for the additional information.

@Cryptonic
Ok?
I'll edit it in.

15. Re: New User Guide

Jeeze; I wish I could rep you more than once Damus.

Oops, is the information in a post supposed to erase itself once edit post is clicked?

oh god that bug, I get it all the time when my posts get too long, hate it.

EDIT: You can probably reply with quote and copy paste that into edit box.

That's why I recommended breaking it up into multiple posts, Damus. This happens sometimes with long posts.

I've experienced that, and my own fix is to quote the post and perform Ctrl+C/V for each update of the post.
(Erase the [quote]{/quote] though)

It happens with some short posts as of late.

Thankfully I am keeping this all copied under a word document.
