We have updated the guidelines for reporting staff members and introduced a new format to ensure that reports on staff members include all the information required upon being submitted. Ever since I became the relevant staff position to help with staff reports (4+), I have tried to ensure that any and all staff reports were handled properly and given proper review/response. The staff team constantly recruits fresh faces as Testers and Admins, and players should flag any issues that they have to ensure that we are addressing any valid problems and ensuring integrity in the staff team.
It has come to my attention, however, that a lot of reports are filed out of impulse, in the heat of the moment or due to initial frustration with an admin punishment despite the punishment being justified. I need to stress that you should have a proper think and assess the situation before jumping to file a staff report so we can ensure that we have enough time to give proper attention to any meaningful reports that are submitted. I recommend contacting a staff member directly if you have an issue with them, and trying to work out the issue with them as your first port of call. You should only file a staff report when a staff member has broken a rule, abused their position or acted improperly.
