    When you use the /report command, the online staff members receive your report as a message and are able to take care of it (they click a button to start solving or something... I don't know, doesn't really matter).

    When I report a hacker, what the moderators usually do is turn themselves invisible so the hackers won't disconnect or stop hacking. The reporter doesn't know their report is being processed and therefore starts recording, becomes mad (because it sometimes takes a while for the moderator to gather enough evidence before banning) etc.

    My suggestion is to send the reporter a message when their report is being processed.

    In my statement, well of course. Won't be too hassle right away.

    Potential Problems:
    • Announcement: "A mod is here! Now you're going to get banned!" (this happens already).
    • Cheaters using /report to see if staff are online.

    Regarding your first point: people can already say "I reported you, now staff will come" so it doesn't really change anything.
    Your second point does make sense but cheaters can already do that:
    A. Report someone random for hacks.
    B. Watch TAB list to see if a blue name appears and disappears quickly (since the mods aren't automatically invisible).

    Cheaters using /report to see staff online still get them banned as a false report.
    I think the suggestion is the message goes to the person who reported, not the alleged hacker.

    I think, if this is possible, the best way to have this work is once the report is claimed if there was an automated script or something saying "your report has been claimed". Unless a staff member comes to us for proof (video or screenshot etc) we don't need to know who or what action was taken.

    As long as they don't say X-Staff Member claimed .... the last thing staff needs is to be harassed more than they already are.

    It will only say "your report is now being processed, please be patient", that's it.

    He's talking to add chat attention after they reported.
