Well this is my first post after a 60 day ban. It was horrible.

The ban system is ridiculous. Some people have been on here forever and never been banned. I don't understand how that's even possible, I've only been here since late '09 and my next ban is a perma, and I've never done anything bad.

How many times have you been banned, and what to you think of the ban system?

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Christ, you again? I thought something felt nicer around here for a while...

EDIT: protip: the last time i got banned i posted a topless picture of myself wearing an alien mask holding a rubber chicken, and i was released. save that for future reference.

It's ridiculously easy to not get banned.

Never been banned, and in your case I wish they were a bit harsher.

This isn't going to turn out well.
Although I do love when Multi's start posting in threads like these.

Joke bant several times, proper bant once. I'd like to see the rigid sentencing go away personally, but this isn't the place for that discussion. Try Site Suggestions.

I got banned for making multi accounts to spam, but I actually didn't.
My mate spammed on his computer and then I logged in on the same PC and posted.

I got unbanned after a day after I explained.

Not really. My first warn was for posting in a thread that I didn't notice was reported, because some guy wrote the *reported* in a bright color, and since I use the classic skin, I couldn't see it.

The other one was for calling someone an idiot, if I recall correctly, but not sure about this one.

I've been banned twice I think. It's hard to keep track of which ones are joke bans and which ones are real bans. Currently on a warning too, hooray.
#22
I've never been banned. I'm currently on my second warning ever. The first was a few months ago IIRC.

IMO, the ban system is pretty fair, on the whole. It's impossible to create a perfect system. Some things need to be made a little more objective, though.

I think getting banned for something that's in the grey area can be unfair at times. Which is why if I were making the rules, I'd make it so that something within said grey area gets a ban of 30-45 days but doesn't stay on your record. After all, ignorance of the rules is no excuse, but if the rules themselves aren't really clear in a certain area, it's unfair to get screwed for it.

I was banned once, when I was new to the site, for trying to get back at someone who flamed me by posting "beans beans beans beans beans" in every thread he'd posted in, thereby spamming his email inbox full of beans.

And another time for successfully hijacking a thread (even though the thread's question was answered, so the thread was otherwise useless) and turning it into being about tortoises. I have never been more proud of anything in my life.

I don't even know what the rules are, but I've been on a few different forums. They key is typically to not use foul language, don't post CP (or any porn for that matter) and don't advocate illegal activities. The rest tends to come along by itself and it doesn't take long to figure out if certain language or advocacy of certain activities is ok. Remember that links are the same as posting a thing. It's not that hard and the only place I ever get banned from does so arbitrarily and they tell you that up front.

Nah you're right. Other forums I have been on that are a lot more lax generally have a better atmosphere. You get warned and banned for silly things.
#31
My next ban is a perma too TS, but I haven't had so much as a warning since my last ban (which was absolutely ages ago). It's not hard to follow the rules.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

I've only been banned once, for quoting a link to safe for work porn that someone else posted. I served it and came back, I've been good since.

Yeah, that's what my warning was for too. I think that's been the cause of a few of my warnings actually.

Banned twice and you've been here less than a year? You're a bad girl you.


I've been banned twice, both times were my fault.

Never banned, warned a couple of times though.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.
