New Gorum Ban Rules EVERYONE READ!

Postby Ceri the Urt » Mon Jan 18, 2010 11:43 am

Due to the recent urge to make the Gorums a more controlled environment we are implementing new rules.

If you offend you will first receive a verbal warning.

If you do not comply with the verbal warning the following will happen.

1st Offense: 1 day Ban from the Gorums.
2nd Offense: 1 week Ban from the Gorums.
3rd Offense: Perm Ban from the Gorums.

A Perm Ban will be discussed and agreed upon by the Gorums staff, and will not be given lightly.

More Moderators will also be on the agenda and anyone who wishes to volunteer for the position please send me an IM/PM.

ALL PAST WARNINGS ARE NOW 1 VERBAL WARNING! If you had a warning on your record and you offend again in the future then you will start with a 1 day ban.

Thank You

Sounds like, if coupled with some good sense, a step in the right direction.


So how will you be doing banning? Single user account or IP? I'd warn you against IP banning cause those can be tricksey and easily circumnavigated.
This should be interesting.

She bans souls, Sacha.

SOULS.

Totally cool with that, maybe a ban will revoke the contract I made on it?

I have multiple ban controls, which will include things such as usernames and all IPs that username has ever logged in from. The hope (of course) is that we don't even need to pull out these measures...

Personally I think that is a good idea.
Here's hoping the lovely Ceri and company will be more consistent with the bans than LL is.
LL won't even look at IP addresses of anyone accused of having 20+ accounts to sockpuppet with.

I am saddened by the fact that this is necessary. Though heated debate can be fun and actually I have learned a great deal from many of the exchanges, I doubt that Ceri, or any of the mods relish the idea of placing adults into a text time out. Obviously many do not know when to back down or just stop the fruitless arguing and the descent into baiting one another and ongoing insults.
I am sorry that it has come to this. :ohgawd:

I would like to thank Ceri and Co. for providing a forum on which I lurk and sometimes post to upon occasion.

Well, since this has been in effect for a year now, seems to be working fine. I haven't heard many complaints from the general population about the policy.

Its 6 am and my brain decided not to sleep, so maybe this is obvious to non-brain farting minds..

Offend what?
Offend against the existing rules (like spamming, not playing nice?)
Then wouldn't this be new ramifications to breaking the rules, as opposed to a new rule?
