    This is a long shot but, does anybody have the details on what this "report button" is all about? More importantly these three questions I have about it.

    1. What are we supposed to report on?
    2. How and who is going to be looking at these reports?
    3. What happens to the users who do get in trouble. We know that there is a ban system in place, but what happens when someone gets caught breaking the rules.
    I understand that this button did get pushed back into 2017 which probably was a good idea, but I want to know what this report button is going to be used for.

    To please the the rage quitters, people that suck at the game, and the in a small regard the people that actually are cheating to be caught hopefully for good.

    In short, to satisfy the masses while he fiddles around with something for a few months. :p

    It's probably going to be used to report players who obstruct Kyle's development. If he didn't implement certain features (like manipulating font size & color or using a 3rd party aimbot) he would want us to do the leg work for him and report any game violations. Reporting bugs and glitches might be his other expectation. It's amazing that we have to guess what his intentions are. But those thoughts seem logical.

    There is a place where you can report bugs and glitches on the steam forums that Kyle is hopefully looking into, so its most likely going to be used for reporting people who cheat and people who are disruptive although the disruptive players aren't that big of a concern with what we have to ignore them.

    Either way the cheaters are top priority to deal with it seems, which sucks because this does slow down an already slow process to the game. Personally I believe this is where he's going to need some people to look at these reports and take care of those users accordingly because it will slow down everything a lot if it's just him looking at these and dealing with them.

    Considering that he's banning people who use AgentFire's program, and not AgentFire himself, I would say that Kyle's to-do list is skewered.

    As for people who read reports, it won't take long at all, at least in my experience. A single report list with reasons can easily be read through, cleaned out, and actions taken accordingly can be finished in a few minutes ( assuming the report list has reasons, quick-moderation buttons and below 50 cases. )
