This was posted in the questionnaire thread. I felt that it deserved an answer so I will do so here to prevent the questionnaire becoming derailed. We ask for video evidence of the incident being reported for the following reasons: 1) In the interest of fairness, every incident report is viewed by all staff members and the action taken (if any) is then discussed and decided upon. Not every staff member has every sim that RD supports, so replay files are no good. We need videos that can be embedded in forum posts. 2) As staff we give up a lot of our time to run RD. Reviewing incidents without the reporter providing a video would mean that we would have to find the replay file and download it, find the incident in question in a 20-80 minute race, record it as a video file, and then upload the video to the internet. That may only take 15-30 mins for a single incident, but given that there can be numerous reports for a single race it would quickly become completely prohibitive when added to our other duties. 3) If all someone has to do to report another driver is fire off a rant via PM, every man and his dog will start reporting even the tiniest amount of contact. Again, videoing and reviewing all these minor incidents would be prohibitive. By asking for videos (which may take 15-30 mins for a member to produce) it automatically weeds out the 'rage reports' that do not break our rules and do not need our attention. And lets be fair here, given the amount of free time that RD staff dedicate to running the community, I really don't think that it's too much to ask for a member to spend 15-30 mins of their time to help us out... is it? I hope this post adequately explains our policy.
