Suggestion - Flagging an Account

Postby Oraanu » Sun May 19, 2019 11:24 pm

Not sure if this has been mentioned previously/recently, but I would really like the option to flag a user's account as opposed to completing foeing them. I think it would be very useful and serve multiple purposes, including the ability to flag potential ninja traders or scammers if you are unsure of their intent.

Just a couple thoughts on how this could be implimented...
  • From the "Friends & blocked users" tab in your account settings there would be a third section titled "Manage flagged users". Just like friending and foeing, you would just type in the account username that you want to flag and this flag is only visible to you and not other players.
  • If you place someone on your "flagged list", they would still be able to send you trades/PMs as normal and you would still see their posts in the forums.
  • When you receive a trade or PM from a person on your "flagged list" you will get a message/notification at the top of the trade page or message saying something like, "Caution: You have flagged this account"

They are people who intentionally send unfair trades hoping that the person accepts, but they don't outright lie to people so it's not considered scamming. A scammer can be reported, but a ninja trader cannot.

    No support from me, sorry. There's an option to allow all users, even blocked users, to send PMs.
    You also have the option to display blocked users' posts when you see them in the forums.
    Blocked users just cannot send trades, but I personally don't see that as enough of a reason for this feature.

I'm very much with odd eye on this one. The foe system does what it's supposed to enough that this isn't really a necessity.
