  1. TruckersMP gives the players ability to simulate a truck, car and bus driver. The way someone wants to simulate that is up to them, that can either be a simulation of a driver that follows the speed limit and other traffic rules, or someone who does not want to follow the rules but can face consequences for that (our punishment system). One of the most popular arguments I read here is the speed. In real world, trucks are limited technically to certain speeds. But that does not mean those trucks cannot reach higher speeds if we remove those technical limitations. SCS did not accidentally give trucks the ability to accelerate till 170-180 km/h. I have never seen anyone blaming SCS and saying that ETS2 is a racing game and not a simulation because of that. It is ultimately up to the person playing the game to decide what kind of driver they want to simulate. Remember that simulation and realism might be similar but are two completely different terms. I know that lots of people here can have a different opinion on this matter and I can bet this can turn into a heated discussion, but since you wanted to know what's our position on that, here is the answer. As an additional note, I would love to mention that the load on the website report system is Low right now and the response time is around 24 hours. There have already been some comments that players see more live in-game moderation and starting from October I believe this will only keep improving considering our internal changes and the fact that we have recently started recruitment for Report Moderators.
  2. Everyone here has an own understanding of the term simulation.
  3. Hello @TMP_RocketLoup, Thanks for making the requested changes to the topic! I understand where you're coming from with your suggestion, but there are some points that make it a bit challenging. First, implementing a ranking system based on the number of reports can be tricky, as it might encourage misuse or targeting of players. We want to maintain fairness and accuracy in our moderation processes. As for recruitment, while I appreciate the idea of diversifying the team, the language barrier can be a significant obstacle. English is the main language in TMP, and it's not just for communication with players but also for understanding our internal systems and guidelines. Recruiting individuals who don't speak English fluently might create more problems than solutions. I know you are passionate about TMP and want to see improvements, and that's great. Keep sharing your ideas and feedback! However, for now I am going to reject this suggestion as per my explanation above. Sincerely, Leon Baker Community Manager // Rejected
  4. Hello @TMP_RocketLoup, Thanks for the suggestion. However, keep in mind that the suggestion MUST be written in English! Failure to apply the requested changes to the topic will lead to the suggestion getting rejected. You have 48 hours to correct that. Sincerely, Leon Baker Community Manager

  7. Hey, for those who think nothing has changed since the update, here's the scoop: We've scaled down the report system load from Heavy to High (just a reminder, there's a Very High status in between). Back in the Heavy days, it took an average of 12 days to get a response on a website report. But now, we've got it down to 8 days and it's still improving. About those comments concerning the in-game report view rate after the announcement, remember, Rome wasn't built in a day. This has been an issue for years, and one change won't do a complete 180. Change takes time.
  8. It seems like you've completely missed the point of the blog text you quoted in your message. The text doesn't suggest that reporting rule violations is toxic; instead, it emphasizes how an excessive and unnecessary focus on reporting can create a negative atmosphere among players. It's crucial to distinguish between genuine reporting of rule violations and a culture where some players report every minor infraction they encounter, even if it doesn't impact their gameplay. I've noticed that there are quite a few players on our servers whose sole purpose seems to be reporting others. Some do this with the intention of helping us catch rule violators, but others do it for personal satisfaction, enjoying seeing others get banned. The fact that there's a high number of players engaging in this behavior doesn't help us address the issues we're trying to solve. We're not hiding the fact that we lack sufficient in-game moderation or enough GMs to review the majority of game reports. We're actively addressing these problems with internal changes, and more improvements are on the way. Our main goal is to increase the number of Game Moderation team members and ensure we have enough GMs moderating busy areas and handling game reports in real-time. I understand that some players might be upset about the changes to the report system, but they seem to have missed the point of the blog post, which is about our game moderation shifting towards live moderation - a change many of us have been waiting for. While this transition will take time, our team is continuously expanding and seeking ways to further improve the situation. I've personally had doubts about some decisions made in this project and have never been afraid to voice my concerns when necessary. However, it's essential to remember that if you want to provide feedback, it should be constructive and not misinterpret the main points. Sincerely, Leon Baker Community Manager

  10. Hello @[MCG] PennyFG, Thanks for the suggestion! However, I am afraid we will not be implementing such feature again. This was something we introduced a few years ago, but that update got reverted quickly. The players started immediately doing everything to avoid getting banned, which included them deleting accounts as soon as they could see there was a report against them. To be honest, players do not really need to be aware whether there is a report against them or not. As long as you follow the rules, there is nothing for you to worry about, and if you happen to get into a situation which could be a misunderstanding, you are more than welcomed to save that clip, so if you happen to get punished you can provide it within the ban appeal. Sincerely, Leon Baker Community Manager // Rejected
  11. Hello there, Thanks for the suggestion! After careful consideration of the proposal to change the name of the Report Moderator role, it has been determined that there is currently no compelling need for such a change. The existing role description effectively conveys the responsibilities and duties of Report Moderators. Sincerely, Leon Baker Community Manager // Rejected
  12. Our Developers are actively working on resolving that issue. I cannot provide any ETA for the fix, unfortunately. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for understanding!
  13. Correct, the least number you can reach is 1 report instead of 0 as it was in the past. Which means, the only case when you might not be able to submit the reports is if you get banned from the reporting system.
  14. If you disagree with the decision made on the report, you can still contact the Game Moderation Management via the feedback system as you would normally do before the anonymization. The Game Moderation Management can still see who has dealt with the report, which means they can take the further actions when necessary.
