Why we need a PM report feature
 | 
Europe TheBucket 
Hello, I've already made a statement of why I wanted the ability to report other users. But I'm back with some examples to help you understand. imgur.com/a/UWBpz00 - All names have been censored out. I think this is incredibly unfair and hope that HLTV considers this. Thanks for reading.

To be fair, I didn’t ask for ban reasons until March, so I probably got banned a bunch because of stupidity. (My friend not me since I joined in July)

I'm not suggesting this feature because of my personal experiences with other users. I'm suggesting it because I feel like PM's are an an easy way to get away with insulting other users.

You're saying that I can't get insulted because the suspect/offender doesn't know my identity? I don't think i fully understand you.

Like I've mentioned multiple times in the comments already. It's not about my personal experience. It's about the fact that these people get away with the "no insults" rule.
2019-09-11 23:39
who cares if it's about your personal experience or not? the fact that you're complaining about this shows you're emotionally affected by it enough hope someone PMs you "cry is free"

Are private messages even being logged???
2019-09-11 23:15
it would be relevant and useful to know what the context is and from what comment they replied to you. What I would like is a log of ALL posts of the users, not just the recent 10.

I understand, sorry. All of the PM's shown in the screenshot are not conversations but simply people sending me one-time offensive messages. I think a lot of them did this because of my earlier thread similar to this one. But it's not about my personal experiences it's about the feature itself.
2019-09-11 23:20
yeah totally, if there was a way for admins to backtrack and see your earlier history. If not it would be kinda random imo, although most of these posts are ban worthy, but since they arent public its not likely high priority

Pointless. They are PRIVATE messages, therefore only you and the other person sees it, so it does not harm this forum in any way whatsoever. So now tell me, why should the forum moderators waste their valuable time on checking fuck ton of reported PMs? Incredibly dumb idea.

Any other site that has a personal messages feature also gives you the possibility to report them.

Insulting other users are not allowed, according to the forum rules of HLTV. Now I know it says 'forum' rules. But what's the difference though? If you feel like sending a stupid message to somebody in a discussion, you could simply PM them instead of replying in the thread. This way you could get away with the insult.

I misunderstood your reply. The thing is that nobody cares about PMs, there isn't enough moderators to moderate them and they don't harm the forum in any way, because they are private. Your idea will never get implemented. Also, you could just create new accounts all the time and spam PMs, and they wouldn't be able to prevent that from happening. It's just a waste of time, try to understand that.

But what stops users from insulting others on threads? If they're just going to create new accounts?
2019-09-12 14:35

 | 
Switzerland meme_jesus 
Bans, and if you create a new account your replies are very limited for the first 5 days. That's just too much hustle and already limits the amount of new accounts breaking rules
2019-09-12 14:36
#75
 |

Bans? But the users that are sending offensive messages should be banned too. That's the point of this thread.

Switzerland meme_jesus 
You still don't understand, do you? 1. Private messages do not harm the forum in any way 2. You can post PMs without any limitations on new accounts, but new accounts on forums are very limited for the first week so it already decreases the amount of new accounts breaking rules 3. Not enough moderators in #73 you asked what limits new accounts from insulting people in threads. There are already limitations for new accounts in these forums, unlike with PMs, that's what I'm trying to explain to you.

Do you have insight into how many moderators HLTV currently has and how many are needed to deal with the problem?

There are like 2 people that are only focused on moderating the forum. But even if there were 100 moderators, they would still have to revamp the whole PM system in order to implement a useful PM report feature, for example add limitations for new accounts on making PMs etc. For example, I can go and create 100 new accounts without a confirmed email with a VPN (so IP ban doesn't do anything to me), and I would be able to post as many PMs as I wanted from those accounts, but I would not be able to comment in the forums with them.

There are 9 according to the admin @Jonty04l32. But I agree, It would probably take a lot of hard work to implement.

Ok, but what about redesigning the whole PM system, making a "friend list" feature and you can only receive messages from friends, or a feature that lets you choose if you want to receive messages from non-friends.

fair enough, i just think it's kind of redundant to have mods go through PMs that usually consist of 12 years olds saying whatever slurs they can come up with but the rules are the rules and they shouldn't have loopholes. didn't really think about it from that angle.
