Not sure which topic this belongs under so I figured I’d throw it in here.
I shall try to avoid callouts, though I’ll probably be accused of it anyway.
In the past month I’ve seen two threads opened in which suspicions have been raised regarding cheaters. I’ll call them thread 1 (T1) and thread 2 (T2) to avoid a callout.
T1 included the guild name they didn’t trust and flat out accused them of cheating.
T2 simply posted the score and asked for an explanation as to whether it looked viable.
T1 was edited by a mod to remove callouts.
T2 was not edited but accused of a callout buy a dev.
T1 had an argument break out and a dev told them to take it to PMs if they must.
T2 had the same problem but the request to take it to PM was not there, despite the same dev commenting on the thread who instructed the individuals in T1.
T1 continued on for over 100 posts.
T2 was stopped after just 25-35 posts.
Can you guess which was locked?
I’m not putting the exact numbers because I’ll probably be banned for directing people to these threads.
I have nothing for or against either of the two people that made these threads so please don’t think I’m creating this to defend anyone. I simply want to know why two similar threads have been treated so differently so I know in future whether to even bother posting here with the risk of being locked/suspended for less than what some others do.
Also, as I can’t comment on the locked thread it was said if you think someone is cheating to report it privately to a dev/submit a ticket so they can investigate.
This is not a viable option. T1 was opened 3 weeks after myself and many others privately reported the guild. T1 was discussed for over 25 days and nothing had yet been done. So that’s over a month with no action being taken. And now T2 is open we’re told it’s now against the rules to have public suspicions and to act privately which as we know, does not get results.
