• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

Ban Policy Thread Proposal

Old topic!
The last post in this thread is over 60 days old. Posting in this thread will be considered a bump, so please make an attempt to be courteous if you go ahead with it.

If the last post is over 6 months old, it may instead be a better idea to start a new topic. If you aren't sure about what to do, feel free to ask a staff member for help, or try to locate a 'general questions'-type thread if it exists in this (sub-)forum.

Basically, add a thread about the ban policy (i.e. how many warning points it takes to get banned etc..)
Thanks in advance! :)

If I recall correctly, the rules thread should have a subsection about bans and what constitutes as a warning / ban, etc. It oughta be pinned, you should start looking there

If there isnt such a thread yet its kindaaaa a fair suggestion.
But don't assume you can just dick around as long as you're under a specific number.
Honestly do the moderators even use that here or do they just use it as some measure?

we have forum rules
at "some amount" of warning points a user will receive a temporary suspension, for 10 days or so
warning points expire after a few weeks
the rest is up to our discretion

Forum rules tl;dr: Don't act like a 12 year old, don't be a dick, don't spam, keep it sfw, no alt accounts, no large sigs, use coloured text sparingly, no illegal shit, and your behaviour on here is subject to staff discretion.

The last part is important, because the rules can't cover every aspect of human behaviour. You are expected to exercise your own judgement in what is right or wrong. The warning system is meant to give you the opportunity to stop doing something that would get you in trouble.
