i got put on Silence to day for inboxing a fleet member telling him to look up elite mission guides on fleet web site. because he never done elite before and nearly messed up optional on cse. guess he turned chat off and rest of us did not no before going in mission. any way i demoted him 3 ranks for it n put wot he did on officer comments he will be lucky to be in the fleet once i let a leader know.

Uh you realize Atari owned Cryptic before PWE and it's why we had a year of barely any updates, and so fourth?

PWE has put A LOT of money and resources into Cryptic Studios, STO in general, to get them to where they are now. You may not like the fact they want money, but so does ANY business and I'm very happy they purchased CS from Atari. It's flourishing because of them!

You can't be put on silence with 1 person being upset. It takes a few more than just 1 person/report.

However, If you feel you were unfairly chat banned, File a ticket. Sure they might not be able to do anything about your 24hr ban, BUT if it really is the same group of people that continually do it after awhile the reports will reflect that and actions will be taken against them (Because as we all know, abusing any system is against the rules too )

The obvious solution to getting this changed is to make it into an actual issue: Form a group for this and just indiscriminately ban everyone. Clearly nothing will be done unless an object lesson occurs.

This would be a clear form of harassment and said users involved would ultimately be in serious trouble. Just fair warning.

If I may present a hypothesis: all it takes for a player to be silenced would be, lets say, 5 other players. Now, if that group of 5 players can remain off the in game chat but the 'targeted player' starts chatting up the place, would it be possible, in theory, for the victim to NEVER see the people who are responsible for the chat ban?

no, That might keep the player from knowing who reported them, but supposedly, not the GMs. This came up a while back, a lot of people were report spamming random players, and one of the GMs came out and said that if you file a ticket about being reported unfairly, they can see who reported you and potentially take action against them.

I know a lot of people here are complaining that they don't do that enough, but I think if someone made a concerted effort to attack people, they would notice.

Wouldn't even really be harassment: Since merely /ignoring an offending player has exactly the same effect as reporting them, and you can't tell people who they can and cannot ignore, there would be no harassment or false reporting. There is no rule against who I can ignore: I can ignore anyone for any reason, such as the fact that I simply don't like his name and don't want to see it on my chat window anymore...and this has exactly the same effect as reporting them for spamming. This is part of the problem: That you don't actually NEED to be abusing the report system to get someone silenced.
