A member can be Temporary banned too. This means that you can't post about 3 days or a week.
Full Warning = Bye Bye!

When someone is banned unless they make a grovelling apology and the mods let them back in all of their subsequent accounts will be banned. Unless they requested a ban so that they can create a new account, which does happen.

And it would be a bit pointless to log back in when you are banned as you can't use any of the board's functions. And it is very rare for someone to be banned and then unbanned unless it was a case of mistaken identity or if they got their account hacked.

@Miromiro: Temp bans can be unlimited in length. Instead of being fully banned some members have been temp banned for 80 years or something stupid.

Thats during the Annual Awards, and you have to do something that fits in a category. Like for example, my award.

You work hard. You don't just stop by and pick it up on your way to GTA V section.

If you are a decent member you'll probably get nominated in one category or another. Look here for a list of the most recent winners. If you see them around and hover over their medals you'll see the awards that they have won here listed.

CCPD, I like the hard work you put into this man, it's been time for an update on this for a while, since Jay is a lazy bastard.

People wanting awards, work hard, contribute, make friends, be funny, have good writing, good graphical design, good debating skills, be a good returning member, be a good improving member etc etc. Those are the main ways to get a medal I reckon.

Good idea on the handy stuff section, however the links to mine and Ryan's topics are the same. The User Control Panel for Dummies. You might want to change the links to prevent confusion.

And thanks for including my thread. icon14.gif

Are short posts considered spam? I do a lot of those.

Using emoticons as reply or one word posts, nope, those are not accepted, Spam is in the eye of the beholdin, so don't call that a guide, as to what spam REALLY is? Advertising!!
If you're posting to promote another site or something you did elsewhere online. Posting images alone is also frowned upon
Keeping with the thread discussion is being within acceptable limits. People will call me out on this, but I don't operate in a bubble here, we all have to be within the Mod's rulings

Not really. As long as those posts are not simple "ok", "thx", "lol" or something like this, it's alright. It's more about the quality than quantity. So, rather a 10-word post with quality than a 50-word post with complete crap. wink.gif

Great guide bro, you really captured the crushing atmosphere of elitism and tyranny around this place. Good work! smile.gif

It still exists, too
Me and Mike are examples of bans that were not permabans, one self requested, one was accumulating too many warnings, I try and keep it much more modest these days
The LOG as mentioned, interesting to hear that each person has one, I did suspect that unique in my case

You sure? It takes years of training to really "know how this thing works", even the best sometimes fail to really understand it.
