Processed I get that it has been brought up before, but a report function is legitimately needed.

Is the lack of a /Report option idiotic?

  1. I understand that moderators have given (insert large number here) reasons for the report function not existing, but it is literally vital. With the anticheat already being so lackluster, giving 99% of players no way to manually report cheaters without going to a website (which most probably won't do) is outrageous. It promotes hacking to a degree hardly seen in any server i've ever played or used.

    CasDaPenguin and Diestraction like this.
  2. I agree with you that there is a better solution to the hacker problem, but I don't think a /report command is the best way to do so. A /report would require a lot of developer effort (which Mineplex currently doesn't have the resources for due to a lack of active devs) and would open the way to numerous false reports and time on the hands of moderators, who already work hard to keep up with the website reports, which there are more of than you might think. My recommendation would be an improvement to the anti-cheat system to make automatic reports (possibly that are sent to the website for convenience), like many available Java systems. There are also numerous well done anti-cheats for bedrock servers, although they may not run as well on such a high-end server. Any way you slice it, this would require a ton of dev support, which may not be possible, but it is a worthwhile endeavor.

  3. But that is the issue. Yes, the moderators would need to work harder, but that is simply a byproduct of allowing a better server to exist. Negatives always exists. And while false reports can happen, yes, the same thing can happen with the website. And while I wouldn't mind an anti-cheat, the same problem arises. Lack of devs. And I personally feel like creating a command like that (which they could probably copy and paste from somewhere) would be easier than fixing the anti-cheat, which I doubt they had any experience with anyways. I would love either, but I just doubt the devs care enough.

  4. Yep, that makes sense. The biggest problem really is the lack of staff members, as updates can't come with so few devs, and an increase in reports couldn't be read by the smaller moderator team. In the end though, you're right, any update at all would come with its pros and cons, but would be much appreciated none the less.

  5. Thread Moved to Bedrock Ideas

    Gyor, our Bedrock dev has said in the past (it was a while ago now) that this IS planned for the future, but its really up to him to implement this, and Alex to push the update so... :T

    Devs have been very very inactive so there is no ETA on anything at the moment.

    +1 though, Bedrock needs this.

  6. I mean yea kinda hard to argue against this idea, I feel like others have stated above me, that this would be an incredibly hard thing to get implemented in the current state of Devs. While this is a super useful feature and I personally agree that Bedrock needs this greatly, with the lack of Bedrock staff members to handle the reports, and the lack of devs to actually implement this feature / upkeep it.... I don't think it would work at the current time. However, it is 100% needed.

  7. While I think a /report and or an anti cheat update would be nice the anti cheat hasn’t been publicly updated since it came out (or so I’ve been told) and a /report system would be annoying for players on controller it would be a nice addition and you can’t really argue otherwise.

  8. Hey!

    A reporting system is already planned for Bedrock, and had already been processed in numerous threads, such as this one. Sadly with the limited dev resources, there is no timeline for when this, or any new features will be added.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message. I will be locking this thread from further discussion, as this has already been processed.

    Thread Locked, Processed
