Re: Eliminate the Permaban - Jelena

Yes. I agree with Jelena.

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

your super new, never spoken to any of them and u want to bring all of them back?



i totally disagree, i do think that every case is very different then the other so maybe theres a way to bring back a few but im not sure it will be fair to the others who wouldnt be able to come back.

Thank you Snowwy for mitigating towards more forum transparency and allowing such debates to be discussed.

I would propose the replacement of the permanent ban rule using the following guidelines:

Code:
Offense                        
Extreme racist remarks	       1 year at first red; 
                               2 years with each additional red

The users previously banned permanently should be punished according to these rules and allowed to return only after their punishment is complete. I would like to ask the Mods and Admins if they think that these punishment periods are severe enough or if they want to increase the periods for each red card.

Also, I have no problem if the offenses I marked in red are eventually punished with permanent bans (suggested by our good friends Masterclass and Amber), since they are truly a problem in online communities. So long as the 15 offenses = permaban rule falls and no other less severe offense is given a permaban.

Also, I do think we should host another thread with a poll and global announcement starting on April 15th and have a forum vote for this rule.

When I saw this thread, I thought Jelena had been permabanned and I was prepared to rip snowwy a new one. That would've probable resulted in my 2nd mod bashing ban lol

Interesting idea though. I need to think about it but it might be possible.

Re: Eliminate the Permaban - Jelena

Allowing some of the previous permabanned users to return is easy.

If permabans will not be given anymore for some of the reasons such as exceeding a total of non-serious/extreme offenses, or an offense that caused one to go over some maximum limit (15), then allow any of the users that were permabanned for those reasons to post again.

Users that were banned for serious offenses which shall continue to have a permaban, shall stay banned.

If permabans are completely done away with, then they should all be allowed to post again if due to their absence, they've served the maximum time for the offense.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Re: Eliminate the Permaban - Jelena

I support this proposal, although I wouldn't mind a half-way house where permabans are kept for the most serious offences.

I think a review of historic bans would also be a nice idea, judged according to whatever new rules are adopted.

Great to see this proposal linked from a GM sticky!!

The users previously banned permanently should be punished according to these rules and allowed to return only after their punishment is complete. I would like to ask the Mods and Admins if they think that these punishment periods are severe enough or if they want to increase the periods for each red card.

Also, I have no problem if the offenses I marked in red are eventually punished with permanent bans (suggested by our good friends Masterclass and Amber), since they are truly a problem in online communities. So long as the 15 offenses = permaban rule falls and no other less severe offense is given a permaban.

Also, I do think we should host another thread with a poll and global announcement starting on April 15th and have a forum vote for this rule.
I like this suggestion, very fair and thoughtful

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Users that were banned for serious offenses which shall continue to have a permaban, shall stay banned.

If permabans are completely done away with, then they should all be allowed to post again if due to their absence, they've served the maximum time for the offense.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Re: Eliminate the Permaban - Jelena

If you are going to threaten, wish death or injury, make discriminatory remarks or even excessively troll for sustained periods of time, I think you have no place on the tennis forum, and no reason to come back. How on earth is a permanent ban from an Internet forum like a death penalty?

Re: Eliminate the Permaban - Jelena

It is a death penalty, because your account cannot be used anymore. Just look at "Clay Death shrine thread", "We miss you Corey Feldman". I mean, if users make such threads and remember the lost users like they were "dead", than this metaphor is allowed, Bulldog and Amber.
