How can they report and move on? They said there is no name above their head so they can't report!
As soon as they threaten to do something bad, remember their PSN ID from the chat log. I suggest writing it down. Then come to this forum and send a PM (Private Messge) to HomeForumMods. Include the offender's correctly spelled PSN ID, the date, time, time zone and details of the offense. Inform your friends to do the same when they encounter the same issue.
The OP said the user name of the perp is not even in the chat log. So from my understanding there is no way to figure out who they are. You don't want to report someone else and get in trouble for false reporting.
If you know who is doing the deed, or have a very strong suspicion of who it it, you can report them as described above. You can explain that the offender's PSN ID was not visible, but you are certain who it is. Moderation will understand.
We will not get into trouble for mistakenly reporting someone. Again Moderators will understand.
We can also simply report them from within Home. Just PM a friend of who you are reporting and why. PMs can be seen by Moderation. Then pick any name and send in the report. I usually pick an offensive name if one is available (two birds with one stone). This is a method that has been endorsed by Moderation and it's a method I have used many times before.
Well Blocking and Ignoring these things will not solve it. The OP has a valid point and I agree with him with that, something must be done about this and moderation should look in to this matter closely.
The avatar copying thing also happned to me in the Playground space a female avatar which has the frosty mask just copied my avatar from my hairdo up to the clothes I wore at that time, so yeah I understand the OP's sentiment.
Solves it for me. Only thing that can spoil it is a frozen server and it appears that's been patched for now. Who cares if they copy your avatar. It's only an avatar and I don't know how they can copy your personal avatar settings.
How can they report and move on? They said there is no name above their head so they can't report! There has got to be something done about these foul mouthed freezer glitchers. We have been begging for years now and now they figured out a way to do it and remove their names, oh boy SMH!!!!!
Since we have the option to hide ID labels of companions and other Home users and not our own.
I suspect a work around was found by these individuals to hide their own PSN ID's.
It's not really all that surprising that this could so easily be exploited. Folks have been exploiting Home from day one.
I saw two people just today that were talking as if they were friends. One had "![MOD]" infront of his name and even with the playstation home symbol instead of the [L] that most have, just as if they were a legit moderator. Only difference was that the name was not flashing as a real moderators text would. That and he was swearing up a storm and had 'special' symbols in his name. And the person he was talking too had no name at all. You could not select either of them and if I tried to go on eithers profile / send a PM it would show up a error (can't remember the exact error). Not sure how they figured out how to do this but its kind of scary that anyone could pose as a moderator in home nowadays.
If you should encounter that again, write down the name of the "Moderator", come to this forum and send a PM to HomeForumMods. Do exactly what I had stated in my message above.
Talking about it is one thing. Taking action gets the job done.
Conrad i suggest you take the time to actually read thread or is it too much for your fragile mind to understand that THERE IS NO USER NAME VISABLE OR THE ABILITY TO ACCESS USER NAME IN AND WAY!!! so stop with your write down ID and pm babble, there is no ID.
Lightening i have seen you hanging out with these types so stop trolling thread and stop acting like your not associated with them i hope moderators watch you now.
Thew i have tried that aswell and no it wouldn't even locate user and i located everyone in that server.
And Thank You everyone that is supporting this thread it is time for moderators to start cracking down hard, this stuff is breaking TOS and manipluating Sony Home Programming. So why are they getting away with it???
