  • Bans and the forums

    I may be crossing the line, but I think maybe we should make a sticky for this forum that addresses what to do about bans. I think people will stop posting here if they are banned if we made a sticky that told them exactly how to react or atleast directed them to the proper way to handle the situation.

    I realize that there is a proper way to handle the situation, but without people seeing it directly, their first impression will be to post a new thread about it.

    Atleast that's my opinion.

    The sticky is in NS's "Official Rules..." forum, here. The idea being (I think) that when people register after a ban they'll click on "Natural-Selection" and then, instead of going straight here they might try and find out what rules they broke by heading to that forum. However, people who get banned are rarely that rational, it seems.

        Mom, you do yourself a disservice as a regular by not knowing that there's a stickied thread in the Rules and Announcements forum addressing just this.

            i think the point that hes trying to make is that when someone gets banned theyre looking for a "banned" forum and when they dont see one, they just go to general discussion. now as to whether or not its necessary to link it, i dont know, but I can see where people would get jumpy and skip the rules and announcements forum.

                  If people who are banned don't even take the time to read the rules and announcements to at least find out (if they have NO idea) what they did wrong and therefore by reading them finding the correct way to deal with the ban, do you really want to play with these people anyway? This is really a non-issue.

                    Of course it's a non-issue.

                    I'm simply addressing the fact that it's getting very redundant. I see atleast one thread a week (estimate) dealing with "I'm banned, what now?"

                    I figure it'd be easier just to make a sticky that's labeled "I'm banned, what now?" and link it to the Rules and Announcements.

                    Just my .02.

                    Don't overcomplicate this, please.

                      Suffice it to say, Mom, that the administration likes the bar set right where it is. It's as easy for folks as we want it to be.

                        There is a sticky that says "I'm banned, what now?" It's in the Official RULES and Announcements forums.

                          I chalk this up more to the quality of the player himself than the lack of quality in our forum structure.
