Bans should only matter to the mods and not to anybody else. If there needs to be transparency then that's an issue within the mod team and public shaming users shouldn't be the way to fix it. So I stand by my original comment and vote no.

But they shame themselves in the thread they get a ban in. A list doesn't really further the shame but  only document the ban.

The return..

As for the poll, I vote no, since you can easily just search it up yourself to see who got banned recently. Not really necessary to have the mod reports

Bans are documented in mod history, it doesn't help the mods to create a thread every week to "document" the bans when they're all in one place to begin with.

But that can't be accessed by users. I think we have a right to see how the rules are being enforced.

To get this thread back on topic before it turns into the second tale of someone's butt, I voted "no" in the poll. Just adds work for the mod team and about half of the bans are for alt accounts and spambots. There has never been much value to the list because the moderated posts weren't linked, but adding links would only result in more unnecessary work.

What about a compromise? Alts and spambots don't make the list. 

Miguel_Zorro, how much work is it to make a list? Even to make a list with links?

Because of the way everything is listed on the page it does take a while to put together a list of all of the bans. It takes longer if you omit the alt and spam messages because you have to do that manually. Unless the mod chooses to just rewrite everything which would probably take even more time.

Oops. I just realize that was actually addressed to Miguel. My bad. X.x

Keep all bans then and the mod than bans the least prinz alts has to do the weekly/monthly report.

Sounds fair to me :p

In that case the mod team would have to add links for all bans that aren't already obvious from the type of ban.

If you have a high interest in seeing how rules are enforced, you could use the "search users" function with "banned" and "last logged in" every few days. Clicking on a username then shows the exact ban reason on their profile.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That's not very practical. If the mods are prepared to make a list then why should we be against it?

I have to say something about this moderation for Pyro as Bill:

Trolling (The thread had just about nothing to do with Sony and you unfortunately took not 1, but 2 shots at them. If you're going to make these claims of Sony spreading misinformation and VR causing brain tumours, it would be beneficial to include some backing sources.) ~ trasharmdsister12 [8229234]

On the point of brain tumors, does it really require a backing source when the user himself is sufficient evidence?

Gotta love Rol



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
