Post Banned board rules: a friendly reminder
The banned board is strictly moderated and has a clear set of rules that you all should be aware of (right?)

This means that you should assume that you cannot reply to a thread unless:
  • you created the thread yourself
  • you have USEFUL information that will help out: for example, if a player doesn't know why they can't connect and you saw them getting banned, then providing these details is useful

Examples of when you should NOT be posting include:
  • "helpful" advice, such as getting a player to try this and that to identify the cause of their ban (trust me, we know more about the ban system than you do)
  • speculation about what might have caused a player to get banned
  • general comments, such as "you always cheat anyway"

Now that everyone has been doubly reminded, you can expect admins to be much more strict in issuing board sanctions against users who post here when they shouldn't do.

You may not think that your blind attempt to solve a player's ban issue is a bad thing, but whenever a banned player has already been led on a wild goose chase by a load of forum users who are just stabbing in the dark, it does mean more work for us and it does waste our time and theirs.
