why is there no consistency regarding "Banned Users" thread?

there are many users who have been banned for long times and haven't been added to the thread (e.g. groundstroke, LinkMage, Kuhne among others) and many others who have been perma-banned and haven't been added to the perma-banned users (e.g. kingfederer, modern tennis etc), I don't think it's fair and transparent that some posters' banning reasons are exposed and known to all and some are left unmentioned, either mention them all or don't keep a "banned users" thread, or am I wrong? :confused:

No you're not wrong. Especially those "well known" to the forum should be on that list. Don't know why they are not there, but they can always be added. (I'll see who I can find and add them)

If someone gets banned through infraction I dont see the need coz they will be back within 5-10 days anyway. But the longer periods could be on the list.

It's not a matter of consistency I think. Sometimes it just gets forgotten. To forget things is only human and, mods are human :eek: :lol:

Also if you miss anyone in particular a pm to one of the supermods/admins is a quick way to get an answer as well. ;)

oh ok then, thanks Carlita! I just thought there is a system or some sort of automatically generated banned users list available to admins and mods so that forgetting some posters shouldn't be a problem, just to be fair to all, but it seems it's more complicated than that :tape:

thanks again :yeah:

well the temporary banned users we can see at a glance. The list of permanently banned users has become endless over the years :rolls: so unless we know who we're looking for it would take hours to see who got banned when.

Then we have our own list in our own forum. I just checked the last few pages for the most recent "cases":lol: and put those in the thread.

Basically it's: ban, post in admin who/why/how long and then, if it's a well known poster update the thread. Of course there can be many factors why one of those steps is "forgotten".

just checked the thread, I thought Dylan was banned permanently and groundstroke wasn't, and it's actually the other way around :eek:

Kuhne is still missing though :o :lol:

Just checked the "Banner Users-Info" section. Methinks one month-or even three months-for wishing injury or death on someone is too short. Why not six or nine?

Why not pursue legal means in the case of someone wishing death on another? Does this fall under "terroristic threats?"

What are you laughing about? If a poster makes a poor choice of words, whether intentionally or unintentionally, he or she could end up on the wrong side of the law.

Well aren't you lovely.

Just like Tori (Cloudygirl) has stated there is nothing wrong with supporting Murray and also posting in the Gasquet thread, there are other users there that like Murray and aren't banned.And trust me Eimear never really liked Richard, just put him in his sig so she can come to the forum and chat with the other posters, because last time I checked, saying 'Go Murray beat that Druggie Gasquet' isn't really the words that you would expect from a fan of both.

Its a fucken message board, don't take this shit so seriously..its just a fun place, some people get carried away but to threaten them with the law, that's just too funny. Have you ever wondered why they get carried away? Obviously its cuz the internet allows them to be 'big' people, and it's great for them to feel important but, you can't take them seriously.

Thanks very much for your quick reply.
Racism is totally unacceptable at any time.

Please, please, if you and your fellow mods can update the banned users thread as soon as possible after the decision has been taken, a lot of us ordinary posters will be grateful.

In an earlier post Carlita said, if I may summarize, the steps were:-
1. Problem reported
2. Discussion
3. Decision
4. Ban notified
5. Post in thread.
With respect, step 5 only takes a few seconds, and is important. Many thanks.

Mimi, we know the mods have a lot of work, and it could take hours to come to the decision to impose a ban, but once the decision is made it takes only a few seconds to make the decision public.

It's like writing a book and leaving out the last page.

Let's say it's like Kafka's "The trial", an incomplete novel where a man is arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime never revealed either to him or the reader. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trial) :cool:

This is not a request thread for you to gloat over who got banned and who didn't.

It would not need to be a "request thread" if the mods honoured the promise which opens the Banned Users thread - reproduced below:-

"To provide more transparency with respect to the reasons for why certain users were banned, the admins and moderator group felt this thread could address that issue."

I shudder to find myself on the same side as Glory, but if the Banned Users thread is going to be out of date and/or incomplete there is little point in having it.

N.B. I'm a mod supporter 95% of the time, so this is no knee-jerk reaction on my part.

Because rules have been reviewed over the past months. It's been 3 months for a little while now. Wishing death is a worse offence than wishing injury so the punishment has to reflect that.

It's a forum, people know the rules and the fact that a banned user thread exists before they post. It's there for all to see. I'm not saying that it's perfect by any means but those are the rules so if people are so anti that then why post at all? There are tons of other tennis forums around some of which I'm sure have different rules.

as this thread is clearly going the wrong way...it's closed as of now.
