You now have the ability to report an abusive user in a mock draft. There is a new box below the chat box where you can send an abuse message against a particular user. It automatically records information about that user and a copy of the chat transcript up until that point.
Don't take it lightly though. If you disagree with someone taking a player in round 2 when they could last until round 3, don't report them. However, if they take Taco Wallce in round 1, don't hesitate to report them.
If a person gets enough reports filed on them, they can be banned. The process for determining who gets banned is complex, and may change over time. If you're doing a draft and chatting normally then you don't have anything to worry about, even if someone accidentally clicks the report button on you. This is designed to keep out the extreme outlyiers who insist on actively destroying the drafts.
If you report a person, they will remain in that draft, but they may be prevented from joining future drafts. If there's a need to actively remove people from the draft they're initially reported in, then that could be added later. I think this solution should help solve most of the problem with abusive drafters.
If you think you may have been banned, send an email to [email protected], and we'll get it sorted out. There may occasionally be times when a good user is accidentally banned, but if you send an email to support, your account can be whitelisted for the drafts.
I would also like to take this time to thank everyone who does participate appropriately in the mock drafts. The vast majority of you take your drafts seriously and make the discussions fun and insightful.
