How to make a proper Player/Admin Report.
« on: February 28, 2011, 07:02 pm »
    I decided to make a little tutorial on how to create a proper report on a player or an admin. It is made, because it's so rare someone to actually make one.


    ===========================================
    THE PLAYER REPORT
    ===========================================

    You're going to need the following abilities and/or programs:


    • Steam Screenshot Utility OR using GMOD's demo recorder. Or exact time & server of incident.
    • Knowledge of the rules
    • A picture/file uploading site.
    • Maybe Fraps


    1. Getting Evidence

    So let's say a player is blocking spawn. How do we report him?
    Witnesses don't count as evidence. We do the following: We get a picture of this spawnblock and take his ID.


    As said we try and take a picture of the spawnblock; You can do this in different ways;
    • We simply look at his obstruction and hit the F12 key. (a notification that a screenshot has been taken should appear)
    • You press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard, paste your clipboard in paint, and save it.
    • Use any program, like Fraps, to take an ingame screenshot.
    • Any other method you might prefer.
    We want a clear screenshot of the spawnblock, not some sloppy one (http://i54.tinypic.com/144brlg.png), more a good overview (http://i56.tinypic.com/mwxvds.png)
    You can always save the screenshot url somewhere, like in a notepad file or whereever to use it later in the report.


    When you want to record a demo, you can do the following: (Full story: http://tinyurl.com/mkhh2b)
    • Type "record [name]" in console, example: record SpoofSpawnblock
    • Then when you think you have enough evidence, or the abuser left, or when you just want to stop type "stop" in console.
    • Then you need to upload your file. There's a bunch of different websites you can do this on, I recommend that you use www.mediafire.com (Your demo is located in: garrysmod/garrysmod)
      When you have uploaded your demo file you see this:

      You just click on "Copy Link" and the link gets copied into your clipboard. (again, you can just paste it in notepad or wherever to save it for the report)
      Here's my demo: SpoofSpawnBlock


    You may use ByB's method if other methods fail you. BUT this will only get you your own SteamID...


    2. Prepping the Evidence (Only if you are using Steam's F12 function)
    After you've gotten all the evidence you possibly could have (which includes waiting for the rulebreaker to leave the server), select the screenshots/demos that you think are useful, and make your report.
    An example for the result:



    Now, click on your pic and press the Show on Disk button.
    Find the screenshot that has the most detail and upload it to an Image hosting site.
    A few popular uploading sites are:

    3. The Report

    WARNING!!! DO NOT MAKE REPORTS WHITOUT DOING THE STEPS ABOVE (GETTING EVIDENCE & STEAMID)

    1. We click on "Helpdesk" or hover our mouse on it, and click "Create new ticket" - Create Ticket. It should show you a form to fill - Type in the abuser's name, enter the time, pick the server, attach (or link) evidence then finish making your report. (Please use proper grammar if possible)

    Please - Just copy and paste the URL or Direct Link if possible (Bottom fields in tinypic).
    Also, please do not change the fields after you've made the report, it's much easier for admins to have the fields as they are.


    You should get something like this:



    To be added:
    - Optimization of Text
    - Resizing of Images (Easy on imageshack.us)
    - Admin Reports
    - Both Reports with Demo tut.[/list]
