Dear BF4DB Community !
This post is dedicated to clarification of what our Site Bot is, what it does and how it works on one hand, and on the other hand to answer questions concerning the Bot and it's work.
What is this 'Site Bot' ?
The 'Site Bot' is our first, last and only non-human staff member assisting us in the fight against one common enemy being cheaters! The Site Bot works fully automated and makes our job in fighting back cheating players a little bit easier!
How does it work ?
Every time you check and / or update a player's BF4DB profile the Site Bot makes use of it's unique algorithm to both scan the player's stats, but also analyze and compare them to a database full of player stats that were found to be legit and clean.
Simultaneously the Site Bot checks the updated player for prior and current FairFight suspensions and enforces them if a flag was found.
What is it for ?
The Site Bot relieves both our staff team and our extremely active community. If a player was found to have listed FairFight suspensions and / or overly suspicious statistics the Site Bot issues a ban with the given reason being "Suspicious Stats" or "FairFight" depending on what the Site Bot found during it's investigation. This obviously removes the need of reporting very obvious cheaters and relieves our staff in the way that we have one less report to review!
What to do if I was banned by the Site Bot ?
As you might have already concluded due to the fact that the Site Bot is an automated administration unit, not every single ban can be perfect!
If you feel like the ban was issued in an unfair manner and you do not cheat feel free to appeal your ban here. Once appealed, our entire staff team will review your ban appeal and give a final verdict.
Stats that have been inflated by abusing ingame systems such as Flagrunning or Tradekilling may trigger a ban by the Site Bot. If said abuse of ingame systems can be proved by adding Battlereports of it to your appeal we definitely will remove your ban and approve your ban appeal!
If you have any questions concerning the Site Bot, it's job on BF4DB and / or it's functionality feel free to post them in a reply below!
BF4DB Staff Team!
Would be great if the plugin would include !report <PlayerName> and automatically scan the player by the site bot.
It will have a function like !check or !bf4db playername that will run the player through our checks and return their status
