Depict Change Tonight

Tonight we are changing the way the whistle works to hopefully improve the way players report cheaters and other poor sports.

From now on, when a player blows the whistle on a drawer, the whistle icon will show up under the drawer's icon. This change protects the reporter's identity so the offender cannot target a particular player with false whistles or 1 stars in revenge.

Let us know what you think. See any improvement in player behavior?

Sounds very fair. I was pretty embarrassed every time I blew the whistle on a cheater and it showed that I did it. Glad there will be some anonymity in it now

Though I am wondering why it wasn't always anonymous?
