osu! has a team of moderators that adheres to keeping the game and its ecosystem clean and safe. If you notice rule-breaking behaviour or inappropriate content, report it using one of the methods described below. Alternatively, you may contact any of the moderators online directly if your report wasn't properly handled within a reasonable amount of time — do so only as the last resort.
Accidental reports are ignored. Users who deliberately send invalid reports can risk being silenced.
|Nature of infringement||Point of contact|
|Scamming/Phishing in private messages||Send a regular report|
|Other offensive/inappropriate private messages||None: ignore the user instead. For permanent effect, use the in-game ignore list located in options or block them on the website with the button located on their user profile.|
|Inappropriate conduct from a BN||NAT, via the NAT/BN Management website|
|Inappropriate conduct from a member of the NAT or GMT||Account support team at email@example.com|
|Sexual abuse or extreme misbehaviour||Refer to Reporting Abuse|
For anything else, see instructions below.
Example of using the !report command
Chat misbehaviour is the most common infringement. To report it, use the
!report command, preferably in the channel where infringement took place. Don't feel stressed: if your message starts with
!report and a space, it is only visible to moderators and no one else in the chat. You can also use the report function via the in-game overlay as depicted below if you are still concerned.
The command's syntax has two forms:
!report username !report username (free-form description follows)
If there are spaces in the username, replace them with underscores:
!report bad_user spamming in #osu
