Abuse and Griefing
In any online environment you may encounter griefers, individuals who are intentionally disruptive and try to ruin an experience for others. Sansar provides tools to help mitigate abusive behavior and report it to our team.
When possible, you should report abusive content and behavior to a member of staff. Abuse reports help us to identify griefers and, if necessary, take disciplinary action. We do not send any notification on whether or not we decide to take action against the reported person, but rest assured we do read and evaluate every report.
Note: Be aware that other people in a scene are still able to hear someone you have muted, and the muted person is still able to hear you.
Sansar has a volume slider that you can use to adjust the volume of other users microphones individually, this persists until you log out and will need to be readjusted upon logging in again.
Note: This only affects the volume for yourself and not others in the room
To mitigate the feeling of someone invading your personal space, comfort zones are an area around your avatar in which other avatars disappear from your sight. Comfort zones work in both desktop and VR mode.
There are a few tools available for experience owners to moderate their own experiences such as kicking, banning, and experience access controls. See Moderation tools for experience owners for more information.
