  1. It would be nice if the max amount of words you can put as a response in a report can be increased, most of the time you might not use it, but there might be a time when you will, and the limit will fuck you up because you will have to cut/reduce your response. I don't see a problem with increasing it and would be nice if u guys did.

    I'm not particularly against it, but I want to stress a counter argument real fast.

    I think that in some ways we should be encouraging players to be concise and to say exactly what happened and why in as little of words as possible. If staff have to read novels to deal with one report than something has gone horribly wrong. Besides, adminchat is a thing still.

  3. True, but you might have to cut information that could be crucial to the report, also they always tell me that mods are not required to take information/evidence outside the report itself (like admin chat, pms, etc)

    Nearly every time I have to try and be concise, either
    1. I have to extensively explain in admin chat what happened Edit: AND HOPE THEY FUGGIN READ IT AMIDST THE MESS THAT IS CHAT (AND THEIR OWN ATTENTATIVENESS). Like, how many times do things get missed in chat simply because the mod on duty is AFK? And when they finally come back rounds later, all they have is the report and my faulty-ass memory
    2. I have to rapidly convince the mods that there is more to the story and pray they remove the slay to hear me out
    3. Have to be polite when they tell me they only have to accept what was in the report if I add a detail I didn't consider key in the initial rush to write the report before I get killed or lose by T-round
    4. Hope that my added explanations are enough
    5. Deal with the pop-up window coming up RIGHT WHEN IM FRIGGIN SHOOTING EVERYONE/GETTING SHOT because obviously they need more clarification
    (Or some combination of the above)

    Like, I get there are gonna be some really dumbass-long posts that are unnecessary, but How often. It's not like it takes very long to read, unless the grammar is just idiotic, and the more information the mods get, the less inferences they have to make. TTT is a weird game, and sometimes ya need the explanation.

    If you're talking about the RDM report feature, I really have a hard time seeing how a sentence or two is not enough to explain something. I second most of what everyone else has said, be concise and use shorthand if needed. If something is really complicated but the topic in the main report and using admin chat for a more detailed explanation.

    Not to mention raising the limit might be locked behind some strange coding restriction knowing how ancient the reporting system is.

    Well, it's not entirely out of the picture that you can't present a shit load of evidence, I've done this before, i had to split the evidence between two posts

    You shouldn't really need more than the amount of characters given if you do you probably shouldn't have made the kill. But whenever you need extra space you can just replace the last part with "DMing the remaining info to the staff handling the report/posting it in admin chat."
    this would make them scroll up in console to look for it so they don't miss the added explanation. But the only time I reach the character limit is when I try to add some dumb joke/a copypasta.
