For those who have not been banned

How a ban goes, for those who have not been banned

I'll use myself for example

Me - Starts flame war , calling people vulgar names etc.

Max - Messages me something like this "what are you doing"

Me - I try and justify it

Max possible responses

Max - Okay I understand, but please calm it down
Max - your an idiot , stop doing that

My possible responses

Okay I'll tone it down - ( If I tone it down, the problem is fixed)
Fuk that person he's a *** *** (Tone it down please, i'll give you a chance)

Then the possible scenarios

I either

(a) Go back to flaming - I get another message
(b) Stop - Stopping the problem is fixed

if (a)

Max sends this

Max - Please calm down this is your last warning

My possible responses

(a) fuk these people, i'll try
(b) okay i'll stop (repeat step b in prior step)

Now I either once again have the chance to stop or continue

I flame again - He will then message me telling me he's closing my account for (x) number of days

You could add a few more steps of him messaging you and asking you to stop, but that is the general process. You are given all the chances in the world.

________________________________

It's really hard to get banned. Max is very fair, and to get banned you have to be acting like a total jackass or idiot. Like he is way more lenient than other mods on other sites, and everyone should be grateful he takes so much personal time to actual try and make the site a better place. He actually invests himself into this to make the best possible calls without being a sovereign dictator.

As if often says "the bucks starts and ends with him", but before that ever happens he contemplates and debates the best possible ways for a scenario to be played out. He gives everyone multiple chances before a ban goes through, and he always looks for the best in people and even goes as far as hoping that they will change.

Be grateful for what you have and stop whining

YYW deserved that sht, just as everyone else who has gotten banned before. If you are banned there is a reason. With YYW it's even more publicly evident as to why he was.

I don't think it's necessary to make more threads about this. The incident is over.Let's move on.

Didn't you threaten to post porn when you got banned?

Yep in a rage fit where he told me to calm down

I didn't

He warned me

I said I would do it anyway

He banned me after I told him to ban me or I would do it

As someone who has been temp-banned several times, I can completely vouch for Mikal that this is the process people go through. Hell I go through it myself with Airmax about once a week, and Mikal summarized it perfectly XD
