An IP-ban would solve a lot of problems caused. It would be greatly appreciated by alot of members of the community, including me, and, if needed, I don’t mind lending a hand in any option possible or needed. I could even give the IP-adress, but for this moment, I will wait with that action. I have also gotten messages/complaints from other players, that accounts used in this process were actually stolen from other kongregate members, and that one of these stolen accounts has been reported/spotted scamming in chatrooms for more accounts. He acts as an official and promises free shiny, but than just steals the accounts from unknowing players. That is my main reason for propositioning an IP-ban.

IP bans are superficial at best. Though they do cause an inconvenience, they can easily be circumvented with a proxy, VPN or tor, which is why Kongregate doesn’t use IP bans.

In any case, I don’t see any reason to remove this/these post(s), as I think this post/these posts (including the ones above) should be kept here, to warn the public,as for a lot of players in chatrooms, that there are scammers, and you shouldn’t be fooled for their tricks, and maybe as an example of what people can do if something like this encounters ( this would require a post by moderators though).

Yes, I made a double post, but that is because I expect the first one to be removed

There’s already a post about handling hacking.

Irregardless, Kong’s policy is that screenshots/chatlogs/video isn’t accepted as evidence because all three can be easily edited (the first two much more so). Now, I have no idea why someone would post evidence of themselves hacking a game, but either way it doesn’t belong in the forums.

From a post within the above-linked post:

If you think someone is hacking, simple go to their profile and report them. That process works must faster than saying it here. (Provided screenshot below)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] Moderators

Which are to ban hackers and mute players who scam, and are very rude in the forums.

That’s only partially true. There are two kinds of moderators on Kongregate:
1: Chat Moderators, who deal with chat-related problems (i.e. spamming/inappropriate links).
2: Forum Moderators, who deal with forum-related problems (spam posts, inappropriate images, etc).

Neither of these two have any power over what happens within a game such as BYM; in other words, if someone is hacking/cheating, we can’t and won’t ban them for doing so. In-game rule enforcement is done by the developer and whatever system they decide to use. Though yes, some Kongregate mods may happen to be game moderators, it doesn’t mean we all have the authority to ban hackers whenever we come across them.

Since it’s apparently not clear, I’ll say this again:

Do NOT accuse people of hacking on the BYM Forum

I don’t care if you have proof; don’t post it here. And if you don’t have evidence, please please especially don’t post it here. Instead, follow this guide.

Just because it says it comes from @kongregate.com doesn’t mean that it does; it’s incredibly easy to fake a domain.

Also, just ran a test on the updates@kongregate.com email and got an error (and yes, update@kongregate.com returned the same error), so it’s pretty likely this is a scam.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / [Removed]

If you think someone’s hacking it’s best to report them on the official TDP4 forums, as it’s likely that the player isn’t on Kong and therefore the mods and admins can’t do anything. Also, the Kongregate forum isn’t the best place to call people out for hacking, especially without proof.

Topic: Kongregate / Undercover Moderators **READ**

There’s a phrase in Chinese that in English translates roughly into “Paper Tiger”, and I think it applies very well to the “community service” suggestion. If all these people do is warn them over and over again with no ability to take further (immediate) action, then it’s a paper tiger; they have the appearance of being fierce and powerful, but they actually can’t do much. And honestly, I doubt that a constant stream of warnings is going to stop a determined troll/spambot/flamewar.

The only way this would (conceivably) work is if they were given full mod power. However, because you’re basically asking for regular users to be given full mod powers (albeit temporarily), there’s a huge liability on the admins if someone does do something wrong. In other words, they would have to vet “volunteers” to the same standards as regular mods, which is pointless (why go through the work for a temporary mod when you could do the same amount of work for a full mod?".

Also, it’s been stated again and again, and it’s going to be stated again; mods aren’t cops. We’re not out to punish users for everything they do wrong; we’re there to make sure chat flows smoothly and that everyone feels safe. Lurking undercover would lead to way too many people yelling “entrapment!!!”.

I’m not sure if I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it anyway.

Do not flag posts that are clearly not spamming or inappropriate. If someone is annoying you in your thread, don’t go around flagging every one of his posts. It makes my job harder, and as a result it makes your forum experience worse because I can’t spend time cleaning legitimately inappropriate posts.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / Got an idea for a new gun? Share it here!

I’ve seen a lot of great suggestions for new weapons, but with so many threads it’s hard to keep up. As a result, I’ve created a general thread for gun suggestions so that we can have them all in one place and so that Javelin would have an easier time reading them.

Basic format for suggestions (you don’t need to follow this exactly, but it helps to keep things neat and clean!):

Name:
Type:
Damage:
Ammo:
Reload Time:
Shot Interval
Cost:
Requirements:
Description:

There’s a thread on the official TDP4 forums run by Javelin where you can report people. Kongregate is not the place to accuse people of hacking, so please don’t post names or accusations here.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / Money Send

This will never happen, and here’s why:

1: User X makes one main account and ten thousand alts.
2: User X has all his alts send cash and Kreds to his main.

There’s just too much potential for abuse.

If you want to join a clan, you’ll have to apply in the specific clan threads. There’s plenty that are still recruiting, and as long as you fill out their application correctly and have a decent level/base they’ll let you in.
