    After looking at the other thread it made me think.

    What if there was no option given to players to report others and every time you killed a blue you got a murder count?

    I know there will be people who hate this idea because they want to kill blues then go burn the counts and kill some more without the consequences of ever being red. To me this is a reason to add this feature. Maybe not the exact reason I think this should be done but a good reason.

    I would also like to add that they should prevent players from killing themselves to give a murder count to someone else. To me this is an exploit really because they were not murdered they committed suicide and then blamed a damager for the action.

    So if you saw the other thread...

    ... why didn't you add a "counts should only be placed within a few minutes" option to your poll?

    I choose that over any of your current options.

    Totally don't understand your third option btw.

    There are times when one doesn't want to give counts.

    If you feel someone is killing just to add scalps to his belt then one might not want to give them. Why reward someone with a count?

    If folks are dueling, counts shouldn't be given, it isn't murder.

    If you are sparing with someone they shouldn't be given, it isn't murder.

    Am undecidied on suicide.

    There's nothing wrong with the way it works now.
