So I found a flaw in the system.

We already have a language filter (albeit an optional one). Riot could simply filter names that have inappropriate words through the database and ban/delete names that are found offensive.

It's pretty simply and doesn't require the Tribunal.

One way to mitigate this would be to have Riot review the case if it was punished in order to determine whether or not the name was a legitimate reason for punishment. If it's not (but the player was punished anyway), and the reporting player has a tendency to abuse this, then their ability to report for "innapropriate name" (but not other reasons) would be suspended.

Of course, they could just create a system in which name reports are judged seperately, in a case based entirely on their name with no other info provided (though the same case could also get in as a regular case if they're reported for other stuff in the same game).

I thought of that too

but still, there are things you can't predict, such as people using numbers or mispelling or adding spaces, dots or whatever.


And also, there is the problem where a word itself isn't bad, but the whole phrase is.

and also, people trying to impersonate other people (i.e. pros or riot staff)

We are going to eventually re-direct Inappropriate Name reports straight to Player Support and they'll just change the player's name.

It'll bypass the Tribunal.

Can we make sure that change goes through with another one to make sure that we can report the same person for multiple reasons so things like this and Unskilled Player don't lock us out of being able to send actual reports to the Tribunal? (Or the other way around?)

What if someone has both an inappropriate name and behaved in an unacceptable manner? Currently you can only report for one offense, or use the comment box to expand on the topic. How likely is it a name would stick around significantly longer because players would rather report them for behaving poorly rather than the name (or vice versa)?

That's cool

guess it then doesn't get behavior and names reports mixed.
