Currently, I'm sitting in General being called a whore by a L1 player (god of your mom) spamming the snot out of the chat with a link to an adult site. That's broadly fine - it happens, I'm certainly not wounded, but it's also the 3rd time in five days that I've been in chat and something like this has happened.
I dug up and sent an email the first time but I have no idea what the outcome of that was. The real issue is that there is no button to report him, no way to block him, and no GM to call. There is no way for players to police the community guidelines we all agreed to at sign up, and NO is just too big now for that to be the case.
There is an active, dedicated community of regulars here who would all be willing to mod chat and forums on a set schedule on a volunteer basis. It seems silly of TM not to take advantage of that.
It would be very nice to see:
- 24/7 mods in chat
- Available GMs
- Report Player button
These are pretty standard for a gaming community of any size, and are surely in the TM plans, yes?
