I was reading the post a pic of yourself thread and noticed right away that the first two people were banned (Deadeye and his many personalities was one of them and I can't remember the other) and that made me wonder how exactly does one get banned? This site is pretty laid back and no one gets out line so did these guys profess there love for Star Trek or, I don't know what could be worse, did they actually do something worse?:D Just curious.

I get out of line sometimes. :nerv: This isn't to say that I've been wrong about things I've said, but according the rules of the forum, you can think them as long as you don't type them. For that, I've been warned and suspended a couple of times. I don't have a clue who this "Deadeye" guy was or what he did (repeatedly I guess? :confused: ) but in general terms, "Banned" just means you are stepping over the line too often I guess.

well there are a few different ways:
1. Attacking individual members
2. Using potty mouth language
3. Linking to inappropriate sites/pics

that's all the crucial ones i can think of. those few members were banned many moons ago. Oh, the good ole days.......i wasn't even here yet. lol :D

You can use two accounts to get banned as well JMG.

The top way to get banned is to post pornography on the forums, there is a no-tolerance policy on that one that's been in place since day 1. Spamming the forums can get a user immediately banned if the particulars of the offense are bad enough. Using an inappropriate username can get you banned or even fully purged from the system depending on what it is. If you sign up a second account, that 2nd account gets banned as soon as it's found out and the main account may be suspended for a couple days as well. Those are the only ways to get banned without warning.

Other than that, there's a 3-strikes type rule about breaking the rules here, there's a warning, then on the next offense a short suspension (suspensions are temporary bannings, so the system puts "banned" on that user's account even when it's temporary), then on the following offense a longer suspension (generally a week), then a full banning; also, the particulars of the offense can shape the flexibility of the process with more or less leniency.

It sucks having to suspend and even ban folks, it's hands-down the worst part of my job here. Luckily, very few users have pushed it to that point, under 20 since we updated to these forums a few years ago.

Of course, everybody who posts in this thread is automatically going to be banned. ;)

Under 20 is good, considering its more like 10, since 1/2 were Deadeye. :D

Can you ban oneself JT?

I think that would be pretty cool. If I were a super mod I'd ban myself every time I went somewhere for the weekend. I'm not sure how folks would react, but I'd get a laugh out of it. lol lol

But then you would need someone else t unban you since you couldnt get back in. :Do

If he could, he probably couldn't get back into the system to "unban" himself. Sort of like a self-destruct. :eek:

I've been warned for breaking numbers 1 and 2 on JMG's list but I have not posted or linked to pornography . . . yet. ;)

Yes. :) What a silly question.

I think that the easiest way to NOT get banned is to realize that this is a Star Wars website designed for fun, information, and sharing aspects of the collectible market. Anything else is simply a tangent off of those premises, and the farther off-topic it gets, the greater potential for problems (i.e. banishment) exists.

p.s. Couldn't we replaced "Banned" under the user's name with "JarJar-ized"? Or "Given the Gungan Heave-Ho-Dee-Ho"? ;)

But on a less serious note, to answer the question of this thread:

- When your underarm odor is bad, you should get Ban'd (roll-on).
- It's the name of the next musical reality show: Got Band?
- If you're in trouble, and you know where to find them, you can find the band of freedom fighters known as... the A-Team. * * * * * * (bullet shots)
:D

He could, but it would be a terribly painful process. But after banning himself General Zod and Co would attack. At which point he'd have to travel to his Fortress at the North Pole and throw a crystal to get his powers back.

Yeah, but then I'd have the ability to take the "JT" symbol on my costume and throw it at the bad guys, where it turned into a giant piece of plastic and enveloped them. :D

I'm not sure the old Derek wasn't just pulling our leg.

Now Stillakid?

Wait - let me guess. He attacked someone for religious views probably, right?

I wonder what he did this time to put him on the banned list.

And are he and Derek banned- banned, or just suspended (for the first time, and the second time, respectively I think)?

I'd be sorry to learn either of them are permanently off this site. Their responses, no matter how little I agree with them or not, are always a highlight of any forum conversation.

"Tune in to hear what Stillakid has to say tonight! Only on SirStevesGuide!"

"News and Derek: Posted at eleven."


They get antagonistic, but I compliment them for their thoughtfulness - that's in analysis, not nieghborly consideration (just for clarity) ;)

I don't think the Rancor Pit was a very good idea . . . well maybe in theory, but we should go back to the days when political and religious threads were no-nos. That way everyone would get along, I think.

Having religious and political forums is just as bad as having a "yo mama" joke forum. Someone is bound to be offended no matter what.

That she is so fat, when she sits around the house, her enormous girth actually surrounds the entire structure.
