How to report inappropriate Symbol Arts?

Was the best way to report symbol arts that are showing genitals, breasts, or engaged in sex acts? I saw that we could block a symbol art and it requires an explanation, was the purpose of that? Do i need to report the player and how do i report him for such thing? if anyone has a guideline for reporting please link it to me. Thanks

You don't - this has been part of PSo2 for a long time, thats why its got an adult rating, sorry but you have to live with it or find a less lewd channel.

@Scion_mike There is an option on the support site for reporting players. If you want to report player related grievances, I'd recommend screencapping the card that displays the player's name when symbol art is posted. Additionally, tickets ask for the ship, the block, their player ID name, player ID number, character name, and the date and time it was posted. You can get the ID info from clicking on them (can also select them from the nearby players menu). You can attach images to support tickets at the bottom.

@Amari-Kigu Mildly interesting, though, is the fact that the Global team actively censors their own content to avoid nudity, even though the game is rated for age 15+ with sex, violence, and coarse language.

I would definitely love a way to blacklist certain symbol arts, though, to get a break from those RMT spammers using symbol art to spam their adverts.

As others have mentioned, there's nothing you can do against explicit SAs. You can blacklist specific players or turn SAs off entirely.

You can also report symbol arts by going to the "Chat" menu by pressing Escape/Start and go into the Symbol Arts menu. At the top yellow bar you should be able to select "History" and be able to see previously-used symbol arts to manually pick and report or to block/delete them if needed.

@Amari-Kigu M RATING is for partial nudity not for sharing porn, sharing genitals or sex acts.

The game needs a way to be able to copy and paste symbol arts id, for easier reporting. Also sometimes you arent able to report by using nearby character menu or serach player name from menu, you would have to go to where they at and click on their name. The whole system makes reporting very challenging. Some people see a string of number like(7d482a715ded80e39cfedac6b6ac7e2c ) this and give up or they cound even mess it up. We need to be able to copy and paste these symbol art ids.

I recently made a thread on this and it seems nothing is getting done. The "M" rating excuse is BS people are using to justify their porn spam, someone on Reddit just posted a photo compilation of all the porn SAs they've encountered and I spotted one of the CP ones I saw on another block.

While yes, the game has a mature rating... And people are informed of the actual game's content (not from players) it is still not an adult rating, meaning kids are likely to be exposed to things they shouldn't be, either from players doing it, or even from an advert in the player shop. I think more moderation should be taken to prevent minors from seeing that kind of content in a game also made for teenagers in mind.

@HippyDipps link me the thread. I was actually thinking of making a document that had the id's for all these porn symbol arts, with a short description at least the most commons that people are sharing, obviously without the images or maybe censored. So that way people can grab the id's to facilitate reporting since sega is making it a living hell to report.

@Kofi9867 I completely agree, but not just the minors. Is it okay to go out on the streets with a huge screen and showing porn to random people? NO right? is the same here. This game is not a place to share porn. It has a mature rating but M rating is not the same as X rating.

Btw i published a video this morning related to Auto-chat and Symbol arts, the first half of the video is comedic but the closure is seriously talking about the issues related to them.

@ 19: 02 is where i start talking seriously

Consider NGS as a private business, it’s up to Sega to control what happens in their private area. Sadly it looks like there’s no janitor or guards to do anything about the ruffians coming in. XD

First block and SA and give a reason. That's actually a report function for it.

Second search nearby players, inspect the player who used the SA, then scroll around until you see a report function and report.

@Scion_mike Woops! I think you mixed up our conversations, In regards to the thread @Kofi9867 has it, not me.

Though I completely agree. Not only is it bad for minors to be exposed to content like this in a game that anyone can access. Granted that they are of the recommended age group, higher, or have legal permission from their parents/guardians...

It's content like this that can make people reconsider/quit... All because of a bad first taste, this includes streamers who will unfortunately get punished, all because of some player's terrible actions; plastering it on screen for all to see. Kids could get traumatized, and then in the middle of the situation, you then have people like me who just generally just don't like seeing that stuff. If I get into a game, it's told to be that it has only SOME suggestive content, but nothing to worry about that's NSFW. what's the point of coming when there's always going to be some ignorant person to flaunt it like no tomorrow, there are barely any actions/protocols to prevent these kinds of people from sharing. Sure you can report the symbol arts, but even then what's stopping someone from saving that, and then modifying a single pixel to create a new ID? Speaking as an artist myself who really loves the symbol arts feature, it makes me incredibly sad to see people abusing it.

@HippyDipps Not only that, a new player comes in and walks by all these players sharing pedophilic porn. What are they gonna assume that this game is a gathering for a bunch of perverts into pedophilic cartoons.

Also the symbol arts should have the id on text form so we can copy and paste it. right now is a living hell to write down an symbol art id.
