False Bully Reports & Badges0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:42 pm

Since the release of the “Bullying” category when reporting Habbos, there has been both positive and negative feedback towards the tool. Many Habbos were being falsely reported by their fellow Habbos, which resulted in either a false mute and a room ban by guardians, or even a Habbo ID ban by a moderator. Sulake released a statement last week that if Habbos continued to abuse the Guardian and the Bully Reporting tools, the entire idea would be scrapped.

Last week, Habbo released these following additional features in an attempt to stop Habbos from sending in false bully (and non-emergency) reports:
1. If a Habbo send in a false bully report, they will be notified letting the Habbo know not to abuse the tool and to review the Habbo Way. This is the case if majority of the Guardians vote “OK” after reviewing the chat log.
2. After multiple “false” bully reports, Habbos will be forbidden from sending in more bully reports for a short period of time.

I think this is a great feature to be in place in order to stop Habbos from abusing the tool. Some Habbos have been banned for swearing, while others have been reported for requesting someone’s age. This is the result of the varying opinions of Guardians as to what is classified as “bullying”.

Furthermore, Habbo has also added two badges to those Habbos that file legit bully reports. Every time a Habbo sends in a bully report that results in a “BAD” or a “SEVERE” majority vote, the Habbo will be credited for their effort. For example, Habbos will receive a “Stop Bullying II” badge for successfully sending 5 bully requests.  I’m not sure if this is a good idea as Habbos may be inclined to file more false bully reports.

Codes:
badge_name_ACH_GuideChatReviewRequester1=Stop Bullying I
badge_name_ACH_GuideChatReviewRequester2=Stop Bullying II


I personally have reported a Habbo being extremely inappropriate, yet I received a warning from a Moderator notifying me not to abuse the tool. Have you been falsely warned through the Habbo Guardian tool? Do you think receiving a badge for reporting bullies is a good idea? Share your story by clicking on “Read More & Comment!”
