Alot servers listed as 7DTD are in fact other Gameservers

Hi,

if you take a look in the 7DTD Server list you will see alot of Arma3, CS:GO etc. servers. You can figure it out by taking a look at the maps because 7DTD only has 2 different types: "Navezgane" and "Random Gen". Also the Hostnames indicate that they are not 7DTD as the name of the 1st Ranked server is "[EVO] Evolution Network | Arma 3 Life | @A3L / @EVO | TFR | TS." at the moment.

This probably happens because when you add a new gameserver the default Game Type is "7 Days to die" and people forget to change it to their Game Type.

A solution would be to leave the Game Type field empty by default and make it a required field in the form.

Would love if you could fix it because it sophisticates the statistics.

Thanks,
jcr

I understand your thinking, it seems harsh 'punishment' perhaps.
However, server owners are responsible for their pages.
Many servers are in fact added by others and never claimed on gametracker.

Technically, it is 'abuse' to register under a false game type. So the report would be valid IMO.
Of course, I don't personally have a direct say in these things.

It's perfectly fine to report incorrectly added servers, or games that have since changed gametype, via the report abuse. You'd only get banned for sending in abuse report if you are repeatedly sending in bad reports - but that only happens once in a blue moon.
I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.
