    How does one get banned?

    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? Just curious.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    I get out of line sometimes. 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? ) 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.

    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.

    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.
