who cares

it's just a game




Not necessarily.
She took it beyond the point of just a game.
She insulted and harassed and threatened several people.
soooo.
and that does nothing but go against her

you're better than her, just move on and realize that reacting equals stooping





Well, I appreciate the thought + words.
I can't help my own, irrational temper though...
I know she's only laughing and feeding off this attention, but let her, I suppose.
Even when we are not doing anything, she'll bring it up and start drama out of nowhere.
I can't just sit there and take it neutral

How to deal with this imo:
1. Ignore-list the user, so they can't contact you anymore. This will help keep the situation from escalating.
If they go around the ignore to continue harassing you, that makes it much worse for them - add any new accounts to ignore too.
2. There is an in-game report feature (lower right corner menu > report user) that logs the chat and is sent to the mods.
If you're given a reference number, keep this and include it if you fill out a full harassment report.
3. Report any PMs or posts harassing you as well, and do the same with the reference numbers as in #2.
The reporting part is important to provide proof as just screenshotting is not always sufficient.
4. Try not to respond to them, you can get in trouble too if you get too worked up and say the wrong things.
Trolls suck and I hope you can get this resolved >:
Feel free to ask any more questions on this topic in the SQ&A forum; the regs there know a /lot/ about the report system.

I suppose you're right. I won't lie, my temper gets me in bad situations.
I just want the situation to cool off, deal with it quietly. I just get riled up when she tries to start trouble :/. It's a game, I want to have fun, not deal with junk like that, y'know?

You can also find the person in the 'Search' on Gaia's menubar by typing the username and select under the On/Off status list and select 'Report'.

That's the easiest way I know of, I hope its helpful for you in future references.

Well, in any case, thank you guys for your support surprised .
I am ashamed to say, in some way, I guess I was looking for sympathy. It wasn't even me who was harassed at the scene, but rather my friends told me the story and showed me the screenshots, so I got enraged for their case.

I guess an apology is due for creating my own scene and acting like a drama queen, but I hope you can all understand where my feelings are coming from, and thank you to those who have helped me filed in a report! I honestly could not find the report a user form until some help, haha.

I'll continue to try and solve this issue without annoying the lot of you and giving this troll her attention. No promises, but I'm trying.

Best of wishes to you all, and have a good day/night!
