Poll: What with the anticheater system?
The Topicstarter is right, change is needed to catch more cheaters
Everything is fine the way it is, let it all to the admin

STOP! The current cheatreport/ban-system must change! your opinion is important!
i hate the current system of the site ...

i've done my best to get the nr1 uptime in my country and to keep it (yeah, i bought an extra netbook for it, cause it doesn't use that much power when i leave it on 24/7 compared to an extra desktop pc), now there are cheaters, and lots of them; but how the site is closing all the profile settings and stats down it's becoming impossible to prove that certain users are cheaters, other than having the suspicion they do (because let's say; a new user rises from a zero to a hero in a few weeks; that's not normal if we do it in multiple years)..; i'm nr 20 in the world, and that nr has been quite stable, it's been lower quite a while; like 15... but then the cheaters came so i was at 20... Now all of a sudden i see i'm at 21, and it's not that the user above me is the new one (with a few days or weeks difference); nope, that's the same guy, the new kid on the block is ranked much much higher; so to have risen from below me to multiple weeks/months above me in a single day; there is something wrong...

now i cannot go in those profiles and check anymore, you cannot follow people anymore to see what they're doing,; cheaters just disable everything so they can cheat without anyone having proof of it... and the admin of this site? well, i'm quite sure he hasn't got the time either to check all the users against cheating...

So we must do something against this trend!!! otherwise this site will end up with all rankings filled with top 20 userlists that are nothing but cheaters, and the REAL users; which are playing it honestly will start deminishing littly by little because we lose trust in the website...
Also will it become harder to convince new users ("yeah you can track your stats and try to be the best in the world/your country/..., but hey, it's rigged/full of cheaters anyways so don't bother trying -> prospect user loses his interest at this point)

therefore i suggest we (well, the forum admin actually) creates a small user group (up to 5 users) who get 'limited elevated' access so they can always watch other users stats and are able to find cheaters proactively. These users would still have to report detected cheaters to admin, so they cannot ban users or reset accounts or delete stats, no no no, they only get access to the stats (and off course they're not allowed to share any of this data with anybody else/any 3rd party/company/...)
So when someone thinks an user is cheating, he can say so, our cheatguys will check it out, and if so they'll report. They'll also try to find cheaters themselves by regularly (at least once a month) going over the rankings to see if anything is unusual (a new nr1 that came from nothing? a user with zetabytes of datatraffic but no uptime? etc etc) to proactively keep things clean (if all is ok, that wouldn't take more than a few minutes)
