    Someone will need to actually make up some rules, and possibly set up a way for people to appeal. Most forum software lets you set up priveleges to certain forums, so appeals could be as easy as having a forum only viisble to people with warnings or banned that they can talk in. Otherwise it's just BANNED.

    As for rules, FAF used to have a no secondary accounts thing. You have no ruleset that I've seen, so if I was to try and sign up with a non-parody account, I don't know if I'd end up with a legitimate ip ban for circumventing a ban. These are kind of important things.

    And while on that note, apparently warnings stack up because I just got another warning notice from the forum follwed by an IP ban again.

    Also also, when you do the indefinate posting ban thing, users can still log in to and edit their accounts, they just can't post or PM people.

    I've poked carenath about this.

    No. We've already agreed to give you a 1 point warning on your legitimate account once/if you make it.

    And while on that note, apparently warnings stack up because I just got another warning notice from the forum follwed by an IP ban again.
    Seems like that's the case (the guy that was testing the coventry ban skype messaged me about the same thing). But I don't see the stacked warnings on your profile or the modCP.

    Also also, when you do the indefinate posting ban thing, users can still log in to and edit their accounts, they just can't post or PM people.
    Alright, good to know. Looking at a different method to deal with ban appeals.

    The obvious one is to alter the ban message that goes to the users email with an appeals email address.

    I would message you this shit from a real account, but it's still ip banned.

    It shouldn't be. The impersonation account just has its posting privileges removed

    Nope, logged out of the dragoneer account and threw me into the " Sorry, there is a problem
    You are banned from this site.

    Error code: 2S160/4 " message.

    Murdering cookies worked.

    Who knew?

    Also, on the assumption someone on the modteam there glances over this thread, just in case you are unaware, banning a user indefinately does send out an automated email, but there is no appeals process that can be made if someone gets all trigger-happy, or a user wants to contest a possible ban. Also, the ban IP blocks the person from the site completely, also making it impossible to appeal.

    If you want to avoid the whole FA lack of transparency thing, you might want to put something in place for that.
    Try a VPN Service.

    We're so cultured and diverse while being none of that all at the same time.

    The point is: sometimes it's okay to watch a trainwreck and not feel bad about it. :3
