What is a Bannable Offence (Offense) on these forums??

Forums - Website Topics - What is a Bannable Offence (Offense) on these forums??

Lately a lot of fanboys have been getting their panties in a bunch when one of their own is banned. A clear guideline on bannable offences should be stated in the forum rules that all members (regardless of status or time with the community) should be held to the same standards.

So far I can think of a couple things that should be stated in the rules as guaranteed bans (either short 24 hrs, week long or permanent)

- Derogatory discussions, racial comments and discriminating remarks of any kind

- Personal attacks, threats, and just plain impolite posts. 
 

Continuous trolling should be a bannable offence but this will be tricky because apparently all fanboys have their own definition of trolling.. Deciding on a forum trolling "definition" would probably be the first step on cracking down on trolls.

Alot of the stuff is common sense though. I mean if there isnt a guideline then yea there should be one but I mean most of the stuff folks should know.

Trolling, Racial, Sexist slurs, Harsh language. Folks should know not to say those things in the the forums or they will face repercussions.

I thought common sense was a lost cause on the internet.

One thing that has made the Vgchartz community so fun is that you don't get restricted at every opportunity, and the users are mature enough to not take advantage of this (well, most of them).

The number one thing that can get you banned is repeated trolling, especially very rudely, something like,

"BIASED Wii FANGIRLS!" " ENJOY PLAYING YUR GAMECUBE 2 LOLZORZ!!"

Too lazy to put it in 1337 speak.

I was wondering about alts. Does making an alt after the initial ban make the original ban that much worst? Elevated to permanent?

Who cares, just make another alt.

I mean umm, nevermind.

Also, don't get into conversations like this.

That avatar just makes the "conversation" that much more bizarre.

Owning a PS3 gets you half way to a ban, asking a polite question about the wii gets you the rest of the ban.

Owning a wii and not trolling/bashing Sony gets you banned.

Owning a wii and bashing the PS3 and Sony gets you modship.



GT, you should make a signature out of that.

Clever.
