When to Ban Members


#1
  1. First post is an irrelevant Spam

  2. Threatening Other Members

  3. Racial Comments 

  4. Hackers (submitting information regarding how to hack the game)

What else?


#2

Are these all permanent bannings?
I think number 2 & 3 should be 7 days or more bannings depending on how serious.


#3
  1. Permanent everytime.
  2. This one should be more like a 2 week then permanent because we can’t have that.
  3. I’m not sure how long this one should be.
  4. Permanent because obvious reasons

I’d like to add to the list: blatantly ignoring orders to stop by admins or mods

I know its obvious but I felt it needed to be pointed ot


#5

good one, lets discuss about people who are out of control before banning them.

Bringing my experience as a chat moderator, I expect we may see some new things in chat which will require banning.  Language is the biggest one.  Typically I would give a warning or two about language.  If it continued I would ban.  Loki had a 3 warning rule.  Kinda like 3 strikes and you’re out. Let me know what guidelines to use here please.

People often take chat as a chance to just show how colorful their language is.  Some stop after a warning.  Others continue regardless.  Truly obnoxious players spam the chat into oblivion.  On some occasions I couldn’t find the ban button fast enough.  

Here’s to a more mature crowd.  :)

In my opinion, I think rule three should expanded to include all offensive language towards a specific group (like gender/sex, religion, disability, etc.) 


#8

I think that it was meant to, but phrased a bit simplified :slight_smile:


#9

Oh, sorry. My bad! ^^;


#10

We can make the first ( not super bad offense a warning) the second offense be a week ban and the third permanent.


#11

I agree. I don’t think spamming should be a straight-away permanent ban, as some people don’t read the rules carefully enough. It’s good to give them a chance.


#12

Unless its actual spam.

That’s autobahnhammer.

Just remember to quote, copy and drag to the spammer thread in this forum for documentation purposes.

Spambots should always be an automatic ban


#13

Yeah, if their first post consists of : spam-you-curse.jpgthen i think a permaban is in order, however if they do it once (amusing they are semi-active members, there is no need to be so harsh


#14

Can we liberally use the Kick feature in chat to sorta wake them up and warn them if they curse?  


#15

You can do that or you can private chat them to get them to chill
