Sexual Harassment Issues
In Beta, the MODS were omnipresent and MOST effective in addressing the most blatantly abusive trolls.
Now, the trolls are gaining the upper hand.
Female avis are harassed all over the casino.
Blocking Function to get rid of the harassers DOES NOT WORK.
It only makes them invisible to the blocker... The Harassers can STILL SEE, FOLLOW, and HARASS the person who has blocked them. They just no longer see the abuse on their screen. But EVERYONE ELSE STILL DOES...
I have had several different people notify me that people I've blocked are still following and harassing me after I report them and block them.
Any female avi that 'nods out' on the floor is almost guaranteed to have 2 or more male avi's 'hump dance' on them.
Poker room is attracting trolls who 'solicit' oral sex.
The language censor is a joke. The Trolls now put a space between the letters, and c u s s freely and abusively.
We are only allowed 5 (FIVE) reports a week.
Under the current situation, that limit can be fairly quickly used up.
I was just suspended for calling out a SELF-ADMITTED MALE troll in a FEMALE AVI who was soliciting for oral sex.
Fine, I'll take the hit and the suspension.
But the question remains,
WHEN is Digital Leisure going to address this sexual harassment issue?
If BLOCK does not work, how do you get these people to leave you alone???
It is sad that we need a "playground monitor," but the fact remains that one is needed.
Unless the BLOCK feature effectively blocks YOU also from the offender then the feature is totally useless. I complained about this same issue as MOZ when Home was up and running and as you can expect nothing was done. If when a person blocks another person and that person becomes invisible, then at the same time YOU should become invisible to the offender so to as where the both of you cannot see each other or read any text that is performed. If DL could do this, it would bring an end to trolling in this virtual world. A while back in a Nebula forum they said that the bock feature would act in BOTH ways. People come on here to play games and socialize and spend money,, being harassed constantly by people who couldn't care less about DL to me doesn't make good business sense. If you owned a store and people came in and harassed and chased your customers away would you just look the other way? No of course not, because if you did,,you would eventually be going out of business.
Damn Moz sorry to hear that, But I agree something needs to be done, the lady i play with no matter where she loads in has lest 2 men avi run up and hump dance her she recives multi pm's asking for sexual favors each time she enters a room..lobby poker blackjack now vip and lest talk aboout the club
STOP GIVING US DANCE TASK...the club is nothing more then a scumb pitt full of lonly little boys waiting to attack any female avi that enters..they are not fun task at all so please stoppp them
Thanks for the feedback. We can discuss and see what can be done to make the Block/Ignore features more effective. We suspend users for harassment as fast as we can. But it can't always be instant. Regardless, we take this seriously and it's suppose to be a fun game - you shouldn't have to deal with this. Thanks.
please help us the perverts and trolls are worse than ever hard to even go have fun in the club if your a female guys come up and in local will tell you they want to rape you and ask you to suck their ..... well you get what I mean at least in the club there should be Mods there all the times it's no fun when we have to deal with things like guy ganging up on females and saying the are gange raping the girl please please help us
In my opinion the game got much better now in that case. I remember a few months ago there were always fam wars in the club. Nowdays I don't see any of them.
Actually the blocking works pretty well and quick. But yes it would be good if you would become invisible to a person who you do block.
However there will always be trolls on the internet, if you get rid of one, then two new come. There's not much that can be done about it besides taking the 3 seconds that it takes to block someone.
ok I know you will not see the person you block and yes that's nice but tbh you no sooner have to block one jerk when 4 more are on top of you. You will spend all your time blocking and have no time to have fun with your friends I know people who have had up to 60 people in a matter of 2 nights on blocking trolls and pervs also what about those who are talking about raping girls and gang banging them on the floor as a girl is AFK or better yet the ones who are sexting in local. Is't our right to have fun with out tht going on also.
It's impossible to have a permanent 24/7 moderation. This game has 5 spaces, each of them has several instances. Now a moderator can't work 24 hours a day. Keeping that in mid it probably would require 15 or 20 or even more moderators for a permanent 24/7 moderation.
How would they pay that many?

the only space that I have any problem in is the night club and as I go around 4 kings I don't see the trolling or talk ab out rape, gang banging girl, wanting girls to such their dicks, or anything else like that in any darn place BUT THE CLUB and it is possible to have MODS in the CLUB a heck of a lot more than they do or at least a way for us to call in a MOD right when we need it
As stated above, please report and block the user in question that is causing trouble. All incident reports are reviewed and users are suspended based on conduct. In our July update the blocking features will be enhanced to ensure that the person is also blocked from seeing you or your location in the game. Beyond that, continuing conversations with trolls online simply fuels the situation and a report will be seen and the player will be dealt with.
Digital Leisure moderators go from scene to scene helping out new users and assisting others when people become abusive. There can be dozens of scenes live and active at any time and we can't be in all of them. You can also phone Sony directly to report any abuse in game or via the Sony messaging system outside of our product. Sony consumer services can be reached at 1-800-345-7669 -- please ensure you have the exact username of the user in question.
We should also mention that making a false report via any of the in game tools may result in an account suspension.
We want this to be a fun and enjoyable experience and will continue to work to make that happen. Thanks for being a positive part of the community.
Just a thought, but it could be very helpful...
Maybe don't make finding a friend and forcing them to dance in the club for daily tasks. Or at least not as often... Every time I go in there people literally contact me on my PS4 account and stalk my name and etc... They constantly message me asking me to play dominatrix, or what my fetishes are. They want to connect for "phone sex". This game has attracted IMO some dangerous predators based on the messages I receive. It does happen from time to time in VIP late at night, but it NEVER fails in the club. I'd never go into the club if it weren't for the almost daily task of being asked to do so in order to get my bonuses.
I get that you want "hits" in every aspect of your game, but maybe not force people to go into a club for "dancing" purposes just to complete the daily tasks. I swear it seems like "dance in the club" is used far more often as a daily task than any other. I'd rather lose chips on playing a game 5 times than to go to that club area where some serious crazies dwell. Even though it's on a tv screen, it still creeps me out and sometimes what they say literally scares me to a point. I think cutting back on basically forcing people to visit in the club would cut back on some of the creepy stalkings and soliciting. That's just my opinion.
I've stopped doing "dance in the club" tasks and don't do the "invite a friend to your hotel room" on the PC either. It just seems like I am forced to add people to my friend's list that I really don't want on it. I'd rather have all daily tasks be game related where I spend actual chips and not have to look for strangers. The players on Steam are a lot more nice, but the PS4 players seem to be a bunch of 14 year old children.
Thankyou DL_Miguel for the new block feature, the people have spoken and you delivered on a feature that will vastly improve the handling of harassment and abuse on this program. Those now who choose to harass an troll everyone around them will now end up in a world of their own with their own kind. Good Job!!!!!!
