Hello Ultimate-Guitar .. Thread and post number 1!!!

Also, please forgive me if these are noob questions, I've only just joined :).

Ok first question : If you break any rules, is it a warning or an instant ban?
Second question : If my account gets permanantly banned, can I create another?
Final question : Can other players send PMs to mods saying "ban ..... please"?

1. normally just a warning. Im still on one, i got Wahappwned.
2. Nope, you'll be found out.
3. Do you mean reporting things? Sure they can.

To richwatkinson :

What does Wahappwned mean?
So if I get permanantly banned it's bye bye UG?
And what is reporting?

Sorry about the noobness. :)

1. Doesnt mean anything, just a play on words of the name of the Admin who warned me.
2. no more accounts can be created, so play nice :p:
3. reporting..is... Say a user created a thread full of porn? thats not allowed. So a user would report the thread to a moderator, who would then come in and close/delete it.

And dont worry about it. Everybodys gotta start somewhere

"Wahappen" is one of the site's administrators, and I'm assuming richwatkinson was warned by him.

Yes, if you get permabanned, you can't come back.

Regarding reporting: If you see an offensive post, you have the option to report whoever said it by clicking the red exclamation point at the bottom left of that person's post.

EDIT - Since you seem set on obeying UG's rules, read THIS (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/announcement.php?s=&forumid=35) for a better understanding of UG's rules, and how to avoid breaking them. :)

V (LaGrange) ... If wahappen was a true jackass he wouldn't have been chosen to be an admin, am I right?

Sorry LaGrange, didn't see your post. Thanks to you too. But can't you be banned for calling a moderator a jackass?

If he starts abusing his power, then yes.

but seriously, the most you'll really see of Wahappen is him posting " *Closed* " on a spam thread before shutting it down.

^LaGrange is exaggerating somehow. ......and seriously he was calling us retarted noobs and such, thats not mod material to me......A mod wouldn't do that, especially him. I once thought I was smarter than him, and thought he was an ass. I realized I was wrong in thinking so, and you will too. One day.

Don't triple post. :peace:

You're a mod now? When'd that happen? Congrats man! :cheers:

To Theadstarter:
But anyway. Ya, you can get warned or instantly banned depending on what you do. If you post porn, ur banned instantly. If you spam, you get a warning. If you create a new account when you're banned, u'll prolly be perma-banned. Which means ur banned for like 20 years. Welcome to the fourms! :peace:

Congratulations Pan-tallica on being a collumn cleaner. If I ever get banned again I want to be banned by you because you're an 06er and I'm an 05er /stupid reason. And threadstarter, Wahappen's quite a cool guy, Lagrange was probably banned by him once or something. Moderators usually show you respect if you show them respect, but Lagrange had obviously broken the rules or something and Wahappen flamed him, which he had every right to do. Don't worry about bannings by the way, if you're a good member which you seem to be, you won't be banned.
