Restructuring of the guide has been completed. A lot of text transferring but now there is plenty of room to add new information to the guide.

The guide now consists of this "main thread" and two floating threads. I'm going to add some good stuff these next few days.

14. When a player is punished for "Offensive Name", that player's in-game name will be changed to "Emailsupport + (a number)". The player can then email Riot Support to have their name changed again.
Added it to what is now section III of ☆ A Guide To Tribunal: Trivia And Wisdom ☆.

For example, the OP in this case has reported hundreds of players that were not actually toxic and in the process created toxic experiences for these players. The same OP has received reports in 19% of his games resulting in hundreds of reports filed against him and has been punished multiple times by the Tribunal.

We've reviewed these players with extremely high numbers of false reporting and decided to send out a temporary timeout to these players and warn them that this behavior is unacceptable and let them know that they have been creating a negative experience for other players.

Players that accurately report players--even if they report a player in every game--will never be affected by these types of penalties. For example, your report weights are perfectly fine and you've reported over 200 players.

I then looked at a player that was banned in this thread and he's reported 1000+ players and 630 of them were actually decent players that did not deserve bans. In addition, the player that was banned had received hundreds of reports himself and was banned twice by the Tribunal already. I then checked some chat logs of this player and he continuously, relentlessly threatens players with reports throughout matches--this is absolutely unacceptable.

We're targeting toxic players who are abusing the report player function and creating a negative experience for those around him. For the 99% of players who use the feature responsibly, they should continue doing so and making a difference in the community.

9. Abuse of the report option through such toxic behavior as threatening and false reporting.

Lyte has started a discussion thread himself on the topic of report abuse as well.

I ran some numbers to see how many players might have gotten affected by the recent report abuse audit.

The Level 20 requirement is for voting in the Tribunal punitive system.

You can post in the forums at any level.

EDIT: Over 12,000 views and well on the way to 13,000 - wow.
