    maybe if we could set the requirements for reporting other users, only users that have at least 40+ smartscore are entitled for reporting, what do you think?

    Do people get automatically suspended when an x amount of people send a report abuse? In that case i think it's a good idea to prevent this problem :)

    @.Sam. Perhaps you should close this question and talk to Preetha directly .This information might provoke the spammers who didnt know of it .Just my opinion.

    @thomaster after three different people report the same person, that person would recieve a community ban. @.Sam. I agree. This is getting out of hand, very fast.

    In order to report someone, your account has to have 50 SmartScore and be registered with OpenStudy for +7 days. Also - mods have good tools. I mean, you don't have the IP Check, which kind of sucks. I think you should get the IP Check tool so you can locate these spammers. :D

    yep, this is really a problem, they call them "community suspensions"... I think I agree with the 50+ SmartScore idea.

    Mods don't have IP check. Admins have IP check. Unless the controls have changed since last time I talked to ShadowFiend. The picture below are the controls an admin has (or at least, had).

    Actually with a couple programming edits on the client side, I can make the mod controls visible (even though they don't work because my account doesn't have them authorized... aka I'm not a mod): And I confirm... mods *due* have IP checks. Here is the code for the button parts: <ul data-bind="visible: canModerateThisUser()" class="moderator-tools"> <li data-bind="visible: banFn" style=""><button data-bind="click: banFn" class="ban-user">Ban</button></li> <li data-bind="visible: suspendFn" style=""><button data-bind="click: suspendFn" class="suspend-user">Suspend</button></li> <li data-bind="visible: warnFn" style=""><button data-bind="click: warnFn" class="suspend-user">Warn</button></li> <li data-bind="visible: ipCheckFn" style=""><button data-bind="click: ipCheckFn" class="ipcheck-user">IP Check</button></li> <li data-bind="visible: openstudy.currentUserCanKickFromContextGroup()" style=""><button data-bind="click: kickFn" class="kick-user">Kick</button></li> </ul> This is how it looks like for a mod (yes, for mods... these are mod controls... IP checks are not admin-specific...)

    Actually I think u should jus view the reports more carefully and look into the situation instead of jus suspending and banning. That's jus common sense.

    Okay do this, users with Smartscore of 30+ and at least 2 days on website can ban, or you can also make it so 4+ Ambassador reports auto-ban that way if a user is behaving poorly a group of ambassadors can auto-kick the user.

    Why would you want to limit the report abuse button? That is never a way to go, what if a new user was truly being harassed? Why not just have more moderators? They could easily see if that the reports came in from the same IP and unban the user?

    @thomaster Are you suggesting that lower SS users, can still report. But only higher SS users can make a community ban count correct? If so, that seems like a fair idea. :-).

    To correct my statement, Its not three of any user, if three Ambassador+ users's report the same person once, then that person will be issued a community ban, other that than, i have no clue.
