Consider yourself in this scenario: You and your friends are hanging out at the mall. You see the professor that you hate in public, walking into a store. So, naturally, you decide to play a little prank. Luckily, one of your friends is a mechanic in his spare time. So, you take apart his car, move it from the parking lot to inside the shopping complex, and reassemble it. Your teacher comes out of the shop he was in. Your friends see him before you do, yell at you to run, and run themselves. You didn't hear them, and at this point, the professor has identified you. He asks you who helped you with this because you could not have done this yourself. Would you snitch on your friends? Or would you take one for the team and tell him nothing?

How is this case different from hackers on a Minecraft server? What happened to our 'ride or die' ethics?

The staff team can catch hackers/rule breakers themselves, without any help from the community. They've done it before and things were fine then. Therefore, why continue to ruin communities with the horrible concept known as 'snitching' and just allow things to work themselves out?

How can you compare this situation with hackers and /report? Do you call hackers your friends? Do you think others call hackers friends? Why would you not snitch on someone ruining the game for others?

The /report command is there for two reasons;
1. Provides another way to hackusate without alerting the hacker. You are not allowed to hackusate in chat, so you must either /msg a staff or /report.
2. A staff is not online in the gamemode you are on, but they are on another one. /report alerts them so that they can come and help out with the situation.

Ruining the community by allowing snitching? How does this work, I'd like to know your logic behind this.

Also, disassembling a car? reassembling it inside a mall? what? Why not use a more realistic prank than this one?

1. Just don't tell ANYONE about the hacker? That is the only way you can not be a snitch.
2. If a staff is not on a gamemode, then that is their fault if they don't catch the hackers on the gamemode the staff is not on.

Ruining the community by snitching: Snitching removes trust. Without trust there is no friendship. Without friendship there is no point to be within the community. Snitching causes people to leave.

In highschool me and a few friends reassembled my teacher's car inside a mall and it was hilarious. Don't tell me to pick a more realistic scenario when said scenario is perfectly realistic.

It's not about it being their fault or not catching a hacker, it's about making the gamemode playable/enjoyable without people ruining it by hacking/cheating.

If someone snitches on you, that's just what they do. Perhaps you picked the wrong friend to have while hacking/cheating/playing unfair. Removing /report is not going to stop them from snitching, they'll end up sending DM's still to staff on discord or ingame.

What then? Make a rule that makes snitching punishable? Punish someone for reporting someone for hacking and ruining their fun?

I just don't see this happening, doesn't sound realistic at all. But okay, sure.

1. If you hate the professor it's most likely because you're a bad student and the issue. Teachers work very hard and deserve way more credit for what's due. Sure, some teachers can be mean or snappy, but put yourself into their shoes and ask why they're acting like that.
2. If the thought of deliberately being a jerk to your teacher who's literally just trying to live his life and enjoying his break from his hassle, again, you're the issue. If I was hanging out with my friends, I'd go to an arcade or something. (and its not just the teachers who have a hassle. Janitors, lunch ladies, principals, the entire faculty. A lot of them deserve more niceness towards them, even if its just a simple politeness or "have a nice day" when you leave.)
4. Why should you think of it as snitching? As a player it should be in your best morale to make sure everyone is enjoying the game. If someone brought a weapon to school you'd tell, wouldn't you? Drugs, alcohol, etc. If someone is let's say addicted to drugs and brings them to school everyday and uses them after-class, and you see it, why wouldn't you tell someone? Some stuff should be told to save others. If you see someone who's never had marks or bruises on their body before? If you don't want to go out of your way to save someone, and let it "work itself out", reevaluate yourself. Why should you care what others think about you doing the right thing? If they dislike you for it, that's on them. The fact that snitching has become associated as a bad thing is ridiculous. If you see an officer taking a bribe? Someone stealing? etc.

Now onto the minecraft:
1. from your post it gives off the impression that you cheat, due to wanting /report removed and calling any reporters snitches.
2. this in no way ruins communities. Every good server has /report. Players want fairness. If you dislike how it works, you're more than happy to leave the server and play something else.
3. Staff members do a lot of work by themselves, yet without the help of other players some of those cheaters may go unnoticed while they deal with helping or banning another player.

Don't know why i cared so much about this, just hope you change your mindset on some things. Have a nice day~

Without reports, the staff couldn't even catch nearly as many hackers. They have lives too therefore aren't online all the time. When you see something you report it because if you couldn't report they would get away and the game wouldn't be as fun for you because they'd have unfair advantages.

Hey,
As @ProSl3nderMan said
1) It provides a way for players to not hackusate and not get muted.
2) Players who applied for staff and were denied like me want to help the community.

First of all NO. Creative has so many inapp plots and so little staff activity so noone gets punished. Second of all, what if there is a hacker on Factions but no staff online, only on KitPvP and that hacker is doing alot of damage. Third of all, why would a person disassemble a car? stop coming up with childish examples.

How is it not snitching? It is informing a staff member of someone breaking the rules, therefore
Breaking the rules is not allowed.

1. Just don't tell ANYONE about the hacker? That is the only way you can not be a snitch.

2. If a staff is not on a gamemode, then that is their fault if they don't catch the hackers on the gamemode the staff is not on.

Actually, hackers and rule breakers are ruining this community.

You are telling me that if you saw someone murder your loved ones and knew who it was, you wouldn't tell the cops. What logic is that?

Getting snitched on for hacking on a Minecraft server. Are you actually serious about this?
I would get it if you were angry that someone snitched a murder or something, but a Minecraft server?

something tells me this guy is a hacker and hates it when people "snitch" on him
If he's not cheating he should be good lol? The feature is to alert staff, the staff member won't ban this player unless they have proof of the player actually cheating.

Hackers rarely work in groups, you cant see staff unless they are vanished, minecraft doesn't have cares.
Also the friends didn't snitch someone just has bad ears.

Worst suggestion anyone has posted in a long time so shut up.

Everyone hates hackers, hackers are barely a part of the community (I don't consider most at all). We want them banned.
Hacks ruin the game and ruin stats, its not appropriate just to let them hack.


Go get a life you lil 50-year-old man idiot who probably works at Mcdonalds with no friends.

Hackers ruin the game for everyone else, so if no mods are there at that time, you can use /report to alert mods that someones hacking, it is not snitching at all. Its making the game more fun, and also making the mods lives easier at the same time. If you don't think there should be a report feature i don't even know why you're playing the server. -999
