  1. Put the region in the title.
  2. Is "more likely" really the standard you should use to justify a flag? Cheaters will always have more opportunities to screw up and get removed later. People who are wrongly flagged are just stuck with that forever. Isn't it better to let a possible cheater off (for now) if it means innocent people aren't so easily caught up in it all? Not to mention the fact that removing a clean profile could easily cause more damage to the site's stats than leaving a cheated profile would cause.
  3. You mean the 80 seconds between the platinum timestamp and its screenshot? That would just be the system taking longer to process all 22 screenshots, right? I know for example my latest PS4 plat timestamp is +0s but the screenshot is +4s.
  4. I haven't even started the game on my account, so I've definitely never bought any DLCs in game, yet I don't have any locks over any of them and I can earn trophies these two free sets. The only explanation I can think is that back in the day they were available through the regular store, but even then I can't see them in my download list. Do they show up in your (or anyone else's) download list? Edit: I just purchased the two free DLCs (Ignition and Photo-Finish) on a US account and it added Driveclub Tour Packs 1 & 2 to my download list. I have these on my main account too, which I guess explains why the DLCs weren't locked for me.
  5. After backup and restore, your system would have all the trophy screenshots but no trophy data. So if you then start the game up and earn the trophies again, I assume it would create new screenshots in addition to the old ones, right? As for whether this happened here, no idea. I didn't really follow this dispute too closely. I just wanted to point this out in response to that specific point in case it was relevant.
  6. Pretty sure you could double up on trophy screenshots by using backup and restore, which copies over images but not trophy data. I don't think that's what happened here though, especially given the timestamps on the pictures.
  7. I'd understand removing someone with one flag where you know 100% they deliberately cheated, but not for other cases like online modders and accidents like using multiple systems but forgetting to sync one. If you want one flag to be the limit, first there would need to be a whitelist in place and maybe even different level of flags for each circumstance. As for hiding games, I'm not convinced that should disqualify someone from the leaderboard. That is an option that Sony allows for a reason. If cheaters are exploiting it, that sucks but that's not a reason to ban it here. It's the classic "Ban knives because people get stabbed" argument. But anyway, let's say this was implemented, then looking at your exceptions, why shouldn't someone be able to have their entire hidden games list verified as legitimate in order to stay on the leaderboards? Why should there be any limit on this at all? You seriously want to remove someone from the leaderboards because they hid the 3 trophies that their little brother earned on their account? Also you say that " tracked =/= being ranked" but if someone is removed from the leaderboards (whether for a single flag or a hidden game), aren't they effectively removed from the stats from all of their games? If someone hides Hannah Montana or has their Call of Duty trophies popped against their will, then won't every other trophy they've earned legitimately drop down one achiever? How does this lead to a more true and accurate record on the site? Or am I misunderstanding either how this currently works or how you propose the new implementation to work?
  8. What happened when you checked in game? Was this DLC locked until you "bought" it?
  9. Same thing happens to me for both Apex and Turbocharged Expansion Packs. Just make sure it appears in your downloads list. If you want to be extra safe, check it's unlocked in game or even that you can play and earn trophies for it.
  10. The backlog feature is by far the one I'd most like to see added. This site has so many great aspects - gaming sessions, guides, forums, etc. and it's a real shame to limit their integration on your profile to only games you've already played. Then add in other potential bonuses like sharing your backlog to coordinate future play and you've got a winner.
  11. Some of these comments damn near convinced me to abandon my account and start fresh, and I don't even have a reason to. I do agree though - there's nothing wrong with closing that chapter of your life (mistakes and all) and starting a new one. It's not like you won't have the old profile any more - you can just put it up on the shelf for now, so to speak. You could always pick it back up and flick through it again whenever you want.
  12. The code contains the two DLCs for Lords of Shadow (Reverie and Resurrection), Mirrors of Fate HD and a Lords of Shadow 2 demo. The collection doesn't include Lords of Shadow 2 or its DLC.
  13. I think this post and the last post in that topic sum up their stance on this trophy. Basically the trophy is flaggable, but they are using their discretion to ignore reports where players didn't actively seek out modders to give them the trophy. And if a whitelist is implemented, then at that point, all players who earned it illegitimately will be flagged for it. This is pretty different to what was suggested before - that the trophy is "not flagged anymore".
  14. I have hated pretty much everything about the original ribbons idea and what it stands for, but I could get behind something like this 100%. This alternative idea gives pretty much the same information (more even) but without singling out a certain types of games (or gamers) as being unworthy, and like you said, arbitrarily. Well ok, not quite 100%. I'm not a fan of those names. How about just calling them bronze/silver/gold/platinum ribbons? Maybe that would be too confusing, I don't know.
  15. For the DLC vehicles that you unlock through game progress, do you still have to purchase them in store (for free), or are they already unlocked in game?
