How does one report Player for offensive material?

6 replies 316 views Edited Aug 1, 2013

I see them in my "Players Met" option, but when I use the triangle button on their profile, there is no option to report them?! 

 

There's only:

Add friend

Create Message

Compare Trophies

Add to Block List

Profile

 

No Report User/Player?  :/

If he sent you a message, press triangle on that.

This is a report feature:

  1. Sign in to the PlayStation Network.
  2. From the XMB, Go to Friends, select Message Box and press the X button icon button.
  3. "Received" should already be highlighted, press the X button icon button again to show your messages.
  4. Use the d-pad on your controller to select the offending message, and press the Triangle button icon button to open the Options menu.
  5. Press down on the d-pad until you highlight the last menu item "Grief Report" and press the X button icon button.
  6. After reading the information onscreen, tap "OK" to submit the report.

The XMB is messed up to use the reporting feature. You either have to do it before ever even opening the message by pressing triangle on it. That means you cannot report it after reading it (extremely stupid).

 

Otherwise you have to reset your system and reload the XMB where you can then press triangle on the message and report it for any number of reasons. There is no reporting feature to select a player during play who is using racial slurs or hate speech over their headset/mic.
