Full support. All errors pointed out are correct and the newer sprites done by one of our spriters fix all these issues perfectly. The older sprites are very darkly outlined which makes them stick out more than other sprites on site!

Quote from Sandara"[...] plus as you can see in the PokeHeroes Panel they are currently in process of choosing some more Mods (4-6 as stated), but nobody can apply anymore: "We are sorry, but you didn't apply for Round #1 in time! Round #2 has already started"."


The panel has not been updated for multiple months now, it's been like that for a very long time!
Mod applications have not been open for a long while - the recent 3 MiTs were all recruited behind the scenes due to their help around the site.

Quote from HeartOfAWizard"And honestly, I'm surprised there aren't more moderators because there's more of a need for them."


We recently had a few moderators resign, and one MiT did not pass to become a mod! I'd love to be a mod myself, I've always wanted to be an advocate for keeping the site safe, but, I'd be part of the problem with time zones as I'm from the UK.

Hopefully more are recruited soon!

Quote from Finhawk"I'm guessing there's been just a very clear cut "nothing explicit" ruling on images that has the loop holes of cropping or strategic covering up of parts that have been exploited by users. Or there hasn't been clear guidelines provided to the mods on what's allowed and what's not and individual mods have made their own calls."


This I agree with. It's clear that mods have had to make their own judgement about things like this, with loopholes such as cropping and censorship causing split decisions! As I said in my post, I think the rule against inappropriate content definitely needs a revamp to outline things that are and are not okay. Honestly? Rather than a small page with the rules, I think there should be a sectioned forum post that goes into greater detail about the rules. A good example of this is the Chicken Smoothie rules. This forum thread delves into subjects such as what things are considered personal information (as personal information is not allowed to be shared on the site) and what isn't, giving moderators a clear guide on what to look for. It's easy to navigate with links to each sections, and has bolded sections to help outline the key points of each point.

Quote from Finhawk"[...] lack of tools to handle the issue for the mods and/or simply a lack of mods."


This, I also agree with. As ex mods have stated that moderators do not have the permission to edit profile pictures and other things revolving around profiles, it does make taking down content violating the rules a lot harder, as they either:

a. Have to ask the user, who may not reply or comply with the request.
b. Ask Riako to remove it himself, and, judging by his schedule, he's often very busy to do so.

Quote from Finhawk"Whenever issues crop up, Riako and the mods don't tend to speak on it much before they reach a verdict, which leaves the userbase to guess and fuel whatever is happening. Just a simple "We have heard your concerns and Riako and the mod team are currently discussing it." would be an excellent start to calm things down a bit whenever problems arise."


Like the situation with an ex wiki manager! People believed that nothing was being done and was being kept under wraps, which led to a mass spreading of a hashtag.

Furthermore, when I reported a user for some... not so savoury actions they had done, the mods were silent for multiple days, only having them view their profile. I ended up taking this to Riako, who brushed it off and told me to report it.
I already had.
I ended up having to message a mod directly, the same one who viewed the users' profile, and finally perma banned them. This took such a long time, when it all could have been sorted out through the report itself. It's not very comforting when you and multiple others feel like you've been ignored for reporting the same thing.

Quote from Sandara"[...] I think what we need right now is 2 new types of Staff Members the don't necessarily need authority in the game, more like they will be like "watchers" that analyses whats going on in the game"


Honestly? I disagree. You see, moderators are given different places in the forums to moderate, so I do not see why they can't have this same responsibility when it comes to other things. If anything, I think we need to have forum and general moderators.

- Forum Moderators: Responsible for scanning over forums. For example, CatLady is in charge of the Complaint/Suggestions forums, Bokuto is responsible for the Roleplay forums, etc. (Obviously with mod numbers, moderators may have more sections to look over due to the amount of sections and moderators).

- General Moderators: Responsible for looking at user profiles, feeds, general activities on the site (like trade messages, PMs, etc.) these users would have the perms to change profile content if it breaches any Pokéheroes rules.

Splitting mods between these two brackets would not only allow a good spread of moderators from the same time zones doing different things (such as Jacharias on General and Ravenswing on Forum, as they share time zones), but it also opens up more mod positions AND cuts the jobs of the moderators by a considerable margin, as they do not need to handle both things at once.

Quote from Sandara"Also, I do not and never will agree that pictures that contain no nudity are appropriate for children, it's actually my first time someone told me that it's only inappropriate if there is nudity, then I question myself if you are doing a thousand-piece puzzle of an animal in which nobody showed you the whole puzzle, wouldn't you be able to tell at least which animal species it was and have some idea of the whole picture just by completing some of the pieces?"


This is a perfect analogy. It explains everything perfectly! Sums everything up well in an easy to understand statement.

Quote from Drachiron"while i do agree with the word filter, people can easily find a loophole with it by spacing out the words, so inappopriate language, while still needing to be monitored, will be hard to make sure people don't casually curse 24/7"


I understand completely where you're coming from with the bypass. However, you can easily add word bypasses to the script to block words, too! Say for example... Pikachu! Pikachu is a super rude word, and you shouldn't use it! People may bypass by spelling it as P1k4chu! That word can be added to the block list as well.

Quote from Sparks"As you said about the time gaps between where there is a lack of moderation just because of time-zones of moderators, just like that there had been a language issue where the slurs and those inappropriate words have been used too much BUT in other languages too. Just because of the linguistic barriers, Staff had not been able to identify those words in time."


This is also a great stance, I did not even THINK about different languages! I know that some websites have rules against using other languages in public feeds. PH almost achieves this, with the following rule:

Quote from Pokéheroes Rules"3.1 You may only speak English in our forums (with the exception of the Country Clan section)."


However, this only covers forum threads, and not general feeds. I mean, who knows if the Country Clan forums have any swearing in different languages too?
Whilst it can be easy to slap feeds into translators, it does take up time and some online translators can sometimes not be very accurate! We definitely need more moderators who know different languages, as well as mods based in different timezones.

Quote from PokeStar01"Maybe every time something in the word filter is posted, mods will receive notifications so they can remove those posts?"


I do not personally see a point in this when you could just have a pop up that comes up on the screen that tells you that you cannot post a feed as it contains inappropriate language; it would just cause more work for the mod team, who have a lot on their plates already, I'm sure!

Thank you everyone for your support, I'm happy to keep this discussion up - I hope I have made sense in my response!

I appreciate your feelings towards the complaint I posted, but I'm not trying to start any kind of drama!
This is a complaint that both me, and many other people on this site agree with. We wanted mods to have more control, more mods, word filters and more to be implemented to make this site a friendlier and better environment for everyone! Not only this, but exposing children to pornography is illegal.

Furthermore, the matter that you are bringing up is not the focus of this complaint. This complaint is regarding the use of language and images, not a 'drama' that has occurred on the site. <3

The fact that a mod would allow an implicit photo is wrong.
Like I said in my post above, whether it's cropped or not, it's a nsfw image. It's not allowed.
If I was to ask my parents, my cousins' parents, and parents of my younger sisters' friends, I can guarantee that none of them would want their child looking at it.

This is a big deal. This is a kids website. The picture is from an 18+ manga. The character in the profile picture is having some sort of sexual act done to them. It's not appropriate.

It has become evident that, over these last few months, this website has spiralled out of control when it comes to protecting our community and reinforcing the rules.

This complaint is here to explain what is going wrong and how things should be improved.


1. The use of language on the website.

Quote from Rules - PokéHeroes"1.1 PokéHeroes should be a friendly community-based browsergame for every age. To ensure this, it is forbidden to use offensive swear words or to make any statement that is inappropriate for any age"


Recently, there has been an influx of users who have been using inappropriate language which violates Pokéheroes rules. This can range from the f-word to racial slurs. Feeds have been known to be up for hours, sometimes stretching to ridiculous periods of time, such as full days. Whilst these feeds are reported, the fact that it takes this long for such things to be taken down is not good enough. Is this website is child friendly, we have to ensure that such rules are enforced to prevent children from using terms such as the examples above.

Furthermore, the recent frequent use of racial/homophobic slurs on this website has been appalling. This language is not appropriate for ANYONE. It's highly offensive and has affected a lot of my friends emotionally.

To combat this, I'd suggest recruiting more moderators, taking their timezones in consideration as some time gaps are not covered by current mods due to their schedules. Pokéheroes is usually unmoderated from 22:00 - 09:00 as there is a severe lack of moderators based in countries that cover said time ranges.

GERMANY: Riako, Bokuto.
BELGIUM: CatLady (same timezone as Germany).
USA: Jacharias, Ravenswing
???: Silverlugia456

In addition, I believe that a word filter should be implemented to ensure that users are prevented from posting inappropriate language that breach Pokéheroes rules, disallowing users to post messages that contain blocked words.



2. The use of inappropriate imagery, primarily on profiles.

Quote from Rules - PokéHeroes"1.1 [...] it is forbidden [...] to provide links to any material [e.g, images, videos, audio] that contains inappropriate content and/or language."


Over the course of my time on PokéHeroes, there have been a fair share of users who have had inappropriate images on their profiles, as well as links on feeds. Before, these images were swiftly taken down, with action being taken against the users.

Recently, there has been incidents where links and profile images containing nsfw have been up for long periods of time, much like my first point above. However, the most rattling incident of them all, was when a user was GRANTED THE PERMISSION to have a nsfw profile picture, just because it cropped out all nudity.

No matter what, a nsfw image is unsuitable for children, cropped or not. For example, if the image includes the face only, it's still a lewd expression, which implies that a not-so-appropriate act is being committed. NOT SAFE FOR WORK CONTENT CAN STILL OCCUR, EVEN IF THERE ARE CLOTHES! The content is still from 18+ work! 18+ does NOT mean under 18s. Therefore, it's not suitable for a family friendly website.

This does not just go for profile images, but for profile, signature, links and feeds. If you search up 'hentai' in the hashtag browser, there are users talking about their love for pornographic content, including one user posting a discord link to a server that apparently posts 18+ content. How is this feed even still up? How can you allow children to click on links like this?

More NEEDS to be done. We need more moderators and we need them to have more permissions. Currently, mods are unable to remove or edit profile pictures and pages, making both their and Riako's jobs harder (Mods see bad content > Cannot remove it > Has to ask said user > No reply? Ask Riako to remove it). The rules should be changed to abolish implied sexual content. Profiles and links should be moderated. A statement from the Admin on this situation is WELL overdue. There are children on this site waiting for clarity. They want this to stop. Adults on this site want this to stop. I want this to stop.

I'm sure I speak for a lot of users with this post. If you want to see a compilation of how we all feel about these situations, feel free to browse through here.

Thank you for taking the time to read this complaint.

full support! making usernames is hard, especially when all my ideas are 3 letter usernames!!
I really hope this gets implemented, i'm excited even thinking about it!!

usernames are getting taken up as more users flood the site, adding 3 letter ones would help out a lot! (Especially when inactive users' usernames aren't removed!)

Hi there, DefinitelyNotRif!

I’m afraid if you have clicked through clicklists, it will mean that a lot of things on the index would have already been clicked unfortunately :c
It can be a bit annoying and I totally understand how you feel about it. I have the same issue myself!

When achieving the 500 interactions (IF the clicklist wants index interacts), I click through someone’s storage boxes instead rather than go through unreturned or online clicklists! In the meantime, I’ll refresh the index every few minutes to click the new eggs. Once that’s done, I’ll then go through my unreturned favours/online clicklists! Sometimes the index task will change so then it’s a bit easier to obtain the points in the hour after!

I hope that helps you out and makes sense! Happy clicking!
