    Sam made this comment on BBilge's blog post which struck me as a very odd:

    "You must understand we can't have an incomplete table on a mainspace page."

    Why not?

    That's the very nature of a Wiki...it's always evolving, it's always improving. If you put something out there incomplete, you are encouraging others to get involved and help finish it. People will add/improve little pieces...that's the whole point of a wiki. You leverage all of the users that may just make a tiny edit, but lots of tiny edits add up to something special.

    So apparently Riot is introducing a Tribunal System to deal with all the reports players send at the ends of games. It will work kind of like player GMs worked waaaaaaay back in Everquest. Players will be able to sign up to be Tribunal members as long as they're Summoner Level 30. Then you just have an interface to review randomly-selected reports. You get to see who reported and why and you also get to see the chat log from the game. Then you can either skip the case, vote to pardon, or vote to punish. Many tribunal members will all review the same case with the decision to pardon/punish being based on the majority. Even better, the tribunal members will be awarded IP for cases in which they were a part of the majority, so ther…
